Just as it is with most famous people, Stand-up comedian Basket Mouth complains that fame has stripped him of his privacy and peace of mind.
Well, fame comes with a price and most popular people have looked for a way to manage it. Following some robbers’ intrude into the house of the comedian in Lagos, which left his family and friends quite devastated, Basket Mouth hinted that he is somewhat happy to be in a situation where he has been deemed fit to steal from.
Basketmouth says one of the disadvantages of being popular is being careful about everything and that has deprived him of a regular life.
In a publication by Punch Newspaper released on Saturday, September 24, 2016, Basket Mouth said fate brought him to where he is now and he is grateful to God for making him rich and famous.
“I have been robbed of my privacy and the freedom I had. The fact that I must be very careful with everything I say and do is a bit of a pressure. However, I wouldn’t trade the journey for anything. I won’t change a thing.
“I feel blessed because I know that the life we have can be taken for granted sometimes. I always thank God for every second, minute, hour, day, month and year I witness.
“Turning 38 is amazing and I pray that God will continue to bless me with more years in great health, happiness, favour and more. I thank God for everything especially when I look back to where I am coming from, it is really humbling where God has placed me and where he is taking me to. I am grateful for everything.”
