Akwa Ibom born stand-up comedian, MC Basketmouth has changed his stage name. Basketmouth who has in recent times has not been receiving much patronage for shows now goes with the name MC Miracle.

We learnt from a source close to him that one of the reasons MC Basketmouth has changed his stage name is because it conflicts with that of the more popular Basketmouth (born Bright Okpocha). His Facebook name which had been MC Basketmouth had since been changed to MC Miracle.

It could be recalled that Basketmouth carved a niche for himself during the Night of a Thousand Laughs when he did the mind-blowing joke “mfon-obong, itoro-obong, ima-obong, ekom-obong, dem go dey bobong bobong bong bong”.

With his new name (MC Miracle), hopes and prays that he gets a miracle and return to be a highly sought-after comedian in Nigeria as it was before.
