In an exclusive interview on Radio Universe’s mid-morning show, Brunch2Lunch Sakyi revealed that Basket Mouth’s action was not part of the script
TV personality Yaw Sakyi who was the MC on the night of the “Lord Of The Ribs” comedy show which took place at the Accra International Conference Center last Saturday has stated that Basket Mouth sacking Pat Thomas from stage was not a stage act as some people think it is.
In an exclusive interview on Radio Universe’s mid-morning show, Brunch2Lunch Sakyi revealed that Basket Mouth’s action was not part of the script. According to him, the comedian was not to be introduced; neither was he supposed to interrupt and sack the music legend from the stage.
“Basket Mouth per the script was not supposed to be introduced. The original plan was that after Pat Thomas’ performance, the lights will go off or dimmed and then he walks on stage”, he told Abrantepa, the host of the show.
He also revealed that Basket Mouth kept on mounting pressure on the organizers to let him perform because time was far spent and he wanted to make it to church the next day.
“The program was supposed to start at eight but we started at nine. While the show was ongoing, Basket Mouth came backstage pushing organizers to hurry up because he will be going to church tomorrow… people will leave before he comes on stage to perform”, he explained.
“When Pat Thomas was wrapping up, the lights didn’t go off and then he [Basket Mouth] jumped onto the stage”, he added.
He also disclosed that due to that for the first five minutes of Basket Mouth’s performance, nobody was responding to him as the moment was a bit uncomfortable.
“For the first five minutes, people were not responding to his jokes because the act looked a bit awkward and uncomfortable”, he said.
