Okpocha bright began to discover his love for drumming in 1991, followed by taking-up rapping in 1994. He then formed a group called”Da Psychophats” this group has 7 members and they started going for shows in 1995, but then they break-up before releasing any music. The legend went on to organize another group, which he called “Da Oddz” , with his brother, Godwin and Muyiwa Ola-Philip, but they group music- rapping was not accepted in Nigeria then, so they didn’t make it. Then he ventured into Comedy and today he’s doing well.

However Basket-mouth also appeared in Africa magic show my Flatmate and other movies.
