Basket Mouth

The person topping our list as the funniest comedian in Nigeria is Basket mouth. I do not think personally that there is anyone in Nigeria that claims not to know basket mouth. This particular comedian is well known for standup comedy and he also makes funny skits. Although, his fame must have reduced because of the over whelming change or move of technology but he should be regarded to as the father of comedy because it is a title that suits him.

It is quite difficult not to laugh when you watch basket mouth speak. Even his gesture alone is extremely funny. Not only is basket mouth limited to standup comedy, he has also featured in several movies. Basket mouth’s real name is Bright Okpocha.

2.   BOVI


Another person who is amongst the funniest comedians we have in Nigeria is Bovi. His real name is Bovi Ugboma but he uses Bovi alone as his stage name. One thing I know is that basket mouth and Bovi are brothers in this entertainment industry. There is hardly a time when they do skits without the other. Bovi is also a professional standup comedian, he is not also limited to just standup comedy as he has also starred in several movies as well.

Bovi is another comedian which I think every Nigerian should know.



Another person who is amongst the funniest comedians we have in Nigeria is Apkororo. No doubt, this particular comedian is one that is very funny. He is well known as a musician and he does standup comedy as well. One peculiar thing about Apkororo is his ability to sing perfectly well and how he beautifully adds this to his performance is simply amazing! If you wish to know, he sang the Nigerian version of “Days Of Elijah”.

If you have not watched any of his standup comedy, then you should definitely do so.
