Basketmouth Puts the ‘Big’ Into MTV & STV’s The Big Friday Show



Last week, BN Bargains gave you the chance to be front row and center at The Big Friday Show launch party. The new edgy Friday night music and entertainment show from MTV Networks Africa and STV also aired that day for the first time.

And guess what? Legendary Nigerian comedian Basketmouth, and recent father of two was revealed as the host of The Big Friday Show and he promises the show will give you more entertainment than a Super Eagles and Black Stars soccer match, more gossip than a group of women in a hair salon and more videos than Alaba has to offer! And it sure did.

Basket Mouth & Vixen of STV

Airing every Friday night at 6PM from 5th August, The Big Friday Show will bring fireworks, fun and Nigerian youth culture to Friday night TV. Every episode will feature interviews with the hottest Nigerian celebrities, entertainment news and gossip from the digital sphere in C-von and Bella Naija’s VLog of The Week, a club review highlighting the best places to party when the weekend lands and a restaurant challenge where Lagos top chefs create “The Big Friday Show Special” for their menu. The Big Friday Show cameras will regularly be out and about in Lagos popping in the Rhythm FM studios to film an interview with one of their  DJs and their guest or prowling the streets for fashion darlings and disasters in ‘the Cool and the Fool’.

For all you out there that missed the show the only question on our lips are where were you? But not to worry has full gist for you of what happened at the show. Every week, Basketmouth will have a celebrity co-host and the pilot episode’s was Stella Damasus.

Stella Damasus looked stunning in a black ensemble. The accomplished actress was asked questions by a lucky audience member who was picked to interview her. She said her biggest turn-off in the opposite sex is bad breath and when confronted with the question who she would choose to kiss from Richard Mofe Damijo, Ramsey Noah or Van Vicker in real life, she chose Richard Mofe Damijo! Wow Stella Damasus was fun all the way till the end of the first Big Friday Show.

We can’t wait to see if Mo’Cheddah, the franchise celebrity star who has been announced as this weekend’s co-host will make us all dance in front of our television sets to her hits like Ko Ma Roll, If You Want Me and so on. As one would expect from the funny man Basketmouth, comedy was a key component of the show with side splitting pranks, spoofs and zany skits bringing laughs to our faces and he also read out his hot pick of the coolest tweets, funniest emails, bizarre text messages and off the wall Facebook comments submitted by viewers.

Apart from Stella the first episode showed us 2Face’s seminal track ‘African Queen’ given a makeover as ‘African Weave’ a homage to fake hair (totally hilarious!) while Wiz Kid was the first celebrity on the receiving end of one of The Big Friday Show pranks!, the Naija version of Ashton Kutcher’s hit show Punk’d!

Viewers will play a big part in The Big Friday Show every week. The celeb interview of the week’s star guest will be a staple feature. Music authority MTV Base will ensure that The Big Friday Show features the best contemporary music, spotlighting the hottest music videos trending on Facebook, Twitter & sms in the The BFS Jams Countdown. Up-and-coming Naija artists will also get chance to shine on the programme, getting their music played to close out the show, if they successfully complete the studio challenge.

    • Claire Negbenebor

      August 11, 2011 at 4:48 pm

      Her name’s not “musty”. That’s a BN mistake. That’s Folakemi “Myst” Kalejaiye. She’s a wonderful singer and her album who is working on a debut album, i hope.


      August 11, 2011 at 5:43 pm

      i see BN edited it, okay oooo. lol

    Muna’s sense of style is almost non-existent

  14. NNENNE

    August 12, 2011 at 3:34 am

    I never realized that it is fall in Nigeria now. It must have been chilling… The dressing code says it all!!!

  15. cooc

    August 12, 2011 at 7:15 am

    wht the heck happened to Muna….. Na by force. This whole dressing na wa o.. Yes we know that she is breaking into the rapping world but HABA… she doesn’t have to dress like this to have us take her seriously as a rapper.
    Muna, If you currently have a stylist, FIRE HER!!! and if you don’t have one, you need to hire one like yesterday. With all the designers in Nigeria, you shouldn’t have to be looking like this. You can be a rap artist and still wear urban stylish clothes. This is defintely not your style or anyone else’s for that matter. Be a trend setter.

  26. na me

    August 12, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    Muna-pretty Face,dress sense-NO NO in capital letter

  27. Dee

    August 12, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    It’s called INDIVIDUALISM………..cos she was an ex-beauty queen does not mean she has to constrain her dressing to overly feminine fashion. Allow the babe be herself. Go on with your bad self Muna¬

    Muna is soo hawt! she proved that when she won the MBGN contest…she’s allowed to dress in whateva way she feels comfy in..

  32. *ajalahtravel*

    August 13, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    Androgynes are the best. We can be girly or tomboyish or even a mix of both at the same time if we want to. We don’t give a hoot if girly girls like it or not we’re going to wear whatever the hell we want. So Muna eff ’em all. Your style is yours and that is androgyous…..if dem no like am na dem sabi. Na by force to wear tight skirt and cock shoe everyday?

  33. didi!

    August 13, 2011 at 10:42 pm

    munachi abi..ur dress fyn o…i agree…buh u shld actually change ur stylist or sumtn..d kynd tnzz u wear luk as if say moni don decrease smal small..nywayss shaa.u r stl a hot chick.

    pls lets encourage our youth to not all about entertaimnent(stv)PLS EDUCATE TOO

  35. cooc

    August 15, 2011 at 7:47 am

    Dressing on point? give me a break. There is absolutely no individuality in her style. Muna, as an up and coming rapper, the world will notice if you set yourself apart. Be fresh, creative and original. You need to catch and keep people’s interest through your lyrics and your sense of style. Do not do what has been done many times over. In today’s world, an artist is the whole pkg.

  36. deedee

    August 15, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    me i gbadun MUNA die!!! go gurl…..don’t mind dem haterz…..dey can only hate….in deir innermost minds….i bet dey wish dey could be YOU! sum pple can be so narrow-minded…..ugly mo’foz (yea, dere i said…cos u asked for it)…..mmssshewww

  37. Luvlyn

    August 15, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    Yes muna we know ur legs r ok but wats wif dis outfit. Fat disgrace! Der r lots of tastier ways 2 dress hip-hop-ish, but wif d ‘cyclers’ and ugly trainers!!. Dis girl neva gets it ryt and she has a good body, y dress so cheap??? And as for aunty bolanale, b4 I got a chance 2 look at d face closely I knew it was bolanle. From d hair- shoes says ‘HOUSE GIRL’. Even in kokomansion she was a mess… Y na???
    Ps. Bellanaija post my message. I’m entittled 2 an opinion. Thanks
