Media personality, Shade Ladipoe, has thrown shade at Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth, while congratulating Ayodeji Makun, popularly known as AY, on receiving the Member of the Order of the Federal Republic (MFR) award.
During her congratulatory message to AY, Ladipoe taunted Basketmouth, with whom she has an ongoing feud.
The feud reportedly stems from a dispute over N30,000.
Ladipoe expressed her belief that the outgoing president, Muhammadu Buhari, only did one thing for her—choosing to give the national award to AY instead of Basketmouth, whom she referred to as ‘Uncle 30k’.
She highlighted that AY has consistently been undervalued.
Basketmouth’s Pride and Financial Standing
Ladipoe pointed out that Basketmouth carries more pride than Elon Musk, the renowned entrepreneur, while having nothing substantial in his pocket.
She also expressed her hope that the expenses related to Basketmouth’s new child would deplete his financial resources, bringing an end to their conflicts.
AY’s Perspective on Basketmouth
In 2022, AY participated in an Instagram question and answer session where he discussed his views on Basketmouth.
AY stated that Basketmouth possesses an “uncontrollable superiority complex” and mentioned that he had to distance himself from Basketmouth’s constant immaturity for the sake of his own well-being.
Shade Ladipoe used the opportunity to congratulate AY on his national award to indirectly criticize Basketmouth.
AY, in the past, has spoken out about Basketmouth’s superiority complex and his decision to distance himself from the comedian’s childish behavior.
The feud between Ladipoe and Basketmouth appears to have intensified due to the award decision, further fueling their ongoing dispute.
