A few days ago, popular comedian, Bright Okpocha, famously known as Basketmouth was at the centre of social media frenzy when he cracked a joke about rape, which many of his fans deemed insensitive.
He had since apologized for the controversial joke.
However, in a recent interview with VOX African in London; he re-addressed the issue and stated that there should no limits to jokes.
According to him, “Definitely, I am sorry about what happened. The people that it offended…I won’t say the people that misunderstood but the people that it offended.
It limits me though. Now it limits the type of jokes I’m going to be cracking right now. Sadly, every joke hits people the wrong way. If I crack jokes about food, there are people in third world countries saying, ‘Why is he cracking jokes about food? Have I chop na?’ They will just go on twitter and say ‘This guy should stop cracking jokes about food, I haven’t eaten’.” He said
 “No. If you’re a comedian, you have the power to crack jokes because the truth is humour has no limits. You can crack jokes about death, living, anything you want to crack jokes about.
Speaking further, the comedian said, “Humour has its own education that sends a message. Everything is funny. Everything in life is funny, there is humour in everything that we do. Society actually structures one. For me, the only thing that limits me is if I go for a church event I won’t crack any joke that has any ‘X’ in it.
Then if I go for an event where everyone is drinking and drunk with their wives, I’m not going to be cracking jokes about Noah and Solomon, I have to crack a joke that suits them. I crack my jokes according to the audience. So that’s my limit.
I limit myself according to the audience, but when it comes to jokes there shouldn’t be any limit. But because of the culture and everything, you have to respect the fact that people might find it offensive and just hold back.” He concluded.
