Having come under fire for openly criticizing Nigeria’s former President, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, popular comedian, Bright Okpocha, better known by his stage name, Basketmouth, took to his Instagram page to tender a deserved apology to the elderstateman.
While stating categorically that his account was not hacked, Basketmouth tendered his unreserved apology for being vocal against the immediate past president while also calling for continous support for the change regime, a statement which has since put him into trouble. See his post below…
“Okay!!! No I’m not about to say my IG account was hacked but I have to sincerely apologise at this point that in expressing my opinion in my last post which was primarily to clear the air about who I campaigned, supported or rooted for or didn’t, I was disrespectful to a man I have nothing but respect for.
The last President may have had some wrong advisers and consequently decisions were made that will eventually impact on the economy, however I am sorry if it came across as an attack on the man Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
We all desired a CHANGE, majority voted for it, now we have it, It is definitely a process, a tough one because I know the hustle is real…believe me, I know. I trust it can only get better, let’s just try to be patient.”
