Nigerian ace comedian, Julius Agwu has weighed into the long-time beef between Ayo Makun and Basketmouth.
In an interview with radio station, Naija 102 FM, Julius Agwu stated that he believes there is more to their beef.
According to him, he doesn’t think AY’s claim that N30,000 is the cause of their rift. For him, there could be something more that happened behind the scene that made Basketmouth upset but isn’t speaking on.
Elsewhere in the interview, Julius Agwu revealed how AY hunged up on him when he tried complaining to him about their crash event.
Every year Julius Agwu always holds a concert on Easter Sunday which clashes with AY Makun’s Sunday Easter concert in Lagos.
When he allegedly called him to vent out, he claimed that AY hung up on him.
“I don’t think it’s only N30,000. Maybe there is more. It seems like there is something that is making them angry and they are holding unto but they can’t talk about it.
Drifting from the conversation, he said, “I called AY that Easter Sunday is my day and he cut the call on me”.
He added, “. Basketmouth and AY they quarrel say 30,000, it depends. Maybe because Basketmouth is upset at another thing, but he didn’t bring it clearly”.

According to him, he had attended his wedding with his wife but was shocked when he wasn’t allowed to enter the event, as his name wasn’t on the list of guests.

He further revealed how his name would be kicked out of events because Basketmouth was in attendance.
However, Basketmouth had something different to say.
