Reasons I can’t cancel My Feb 14 show Because of Nigerian Elections – Basket Mouth
Basket Mouth has stated why he cannot cancel his February 14 show billed to hold in London the same day Nigeria’s presidential elections will hold, despite people clamouring that the comedian must cancel the show and perform his civic duties by voting. Here’s the reason he stated to SaturdayBeats;
“This has been an annual show in the last six years. It is a franchise and it holds every Valentine’s Day in the UK regardless of the day it falls on. It has been happening for the past six years and the venue has been booked long ago. The t!ckets have been on sale long before it was announced that elections would hold on that day.
“Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about it because everything is ready and I have to go on with my show. The people talking about it apparently do not know that it is a franchise that has been on for about six years. I cannot cancel the show because of elections,” he said.
