Welcome to our first issue for the year 2017! And on the cover we have Nigeria’s biggest comedy export- Basketmouth.These days it feels like Basketmouth (real name Bright Okpocha) is everywhere—literally. The comedian has his hands in a lot of projects; comedy, acting and events management. But Basket’s primary love is stand-up, which he has been building on for over 19 years. Expectations are sky-high for his biggest project so far- the ‘Basketmouth Live’ show holding on Valentine’s day at the SSE Arena, Wembley in London with a capacity of 12,000 people. If he succeeds in selling out this show, the megastar Nigerian Comedian should be placed with the likes of Beyonce, J-Zay and Lady Gaga, who have previously sold out the same venue. Will his slick, intelligent, blissfully funny jokes captivate Londoners?We spoke with the new face of African comedy about his big plans, catch our exclusive video interview coming next on OnoBello TV.In the accompanying Fashion Editorial for our ‘Special Men’s Issue’, the comic also shows us “How To Look One Step Ahead Of The Pack & Dress Like A Super Star”.
The issue also has grooming tips on ‘The Modern Man’s Guide To Beards’.
