On Monday Nigeria’s frontline comedian, Bright Okpocha, better known by his stage name Basket Mouth, threw thousands of his fans into confusion. Knowing too well that millions of Nigerian youth are interested to go into the movie industry popularly known as Nollywood, he flew a kite by taking to his Instagram page to post a video announcing that he and some of his colleagues were conducting an audition for a new movie.

“If you know you have what it takes, just come and you’ll become an instant star just like several others became stars,” the laugh-merchant had said.

But two vital information were missing in that advertorial – the city and venue of the audition. And hundreds of thousands of eager fans laboured to enquire from the bearded entertainer where they’re supposed to attend the audition but Basket Mouth looked the other way.

What do you call that? Bright’s comical scam, I guess.
