Lagos – A renowned comedian, Bright Okpocha, popularly known as “Basketmouth”, has slammed bloggers for rushing to off load new materials on their platforms without making efforts to investigate.

Basketmouth was angry that a tribute he paid to his brother, who died 10 years ago, was made to look like something that happened in 2015.

Returning from his Valentine’s Day show at the Apollo Centre in London, which was a sell-out, the humour merchant advised bloggers to take time to verify information at their disposal.

On February 14, 2015, Basketmouth posted on his tweeter handle, “you’ll always be remembered, loved and cherished. RIP Kingsley Okpocha. I love you bro.”

According to him, the item was posted by some bloggers “as if i just lost my brother.”

“Anyway, I lost my eldest brother on the 14th of Feb 2005, not 2 days ago,” Basketmouth wrote.

“When our Nigerian bloggers copy and paste stories they don’t even investigate nor carry out proper research,” he added.

Meanwhile, some of his fans, unaware of the hoax have continued to tweet their condolences to the comedian. (NAN)
