Popular comedian Bright Okpocha a.k.a Basketmouth, has announced the breakup of his 12 years marriage with his wife Elsie. Basketmouth celebrated his wife 44th birthday in September, and also when Basketmouth turned 44 in September, Elsie: She wrote, “It’s my baby’s birthday today!!!!!! The love of my beautiful life…my best friend, my ride or die, my joy and happiness…. I celebrate you today and I wish you many more awesome years ahead and God’s endless blessings.” But Basketmouth did not say a word about their anniversary in November raising eyebrows. It was something he did with glee every year. However, he has now broken the ice with an announcement on his Twitter page Thursday: “As much as it pains me to bring my personal life to the public space, this is an unavoidable situation; after much deliberations, my wife and I have made the difficult decision to end our marriage. “As we move forward separately, we will continue to work together to give our beautiful children all the care, love, guidance and support they need. “We humbly ask that you respect our privacy through these tough times.”
The marriage produced two kids. The couple met in 2003 at the University of Lagos Creative Arts department and dated for years before marrying in 2010.
