The famous Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth posted pictures on Instagram on Friday, January 13, 2016, to reveal the news to fans and followers that he had been knighted by the Queen of England.
“Guess who just got knighted by the Queen of England……I’m humbled, God is truly amazing. Your majesty, thank you for the great honor….yours truly Sir Okpocha Bright.“
“Now I’m officially the Lord of the rib,” he wrote alongside another shot.

Sadly, even though some of us wanted this to be true, Basketmouth was just joking since the Queen is currently ill and those people in the pictures looked like wax figures.
The hilarious move was done to promote his brand. Meanwhile, Basketmouth, who vowed to run for Nigerian presidency if Trump wins, is keeping to his promise and has declared his intention to run in 2019.
