Congratulations to Basketmouth and Elsie from all of us at Scooper!

This is Basketmouth’s fourth child. The comedian and his wife have three children together.


Basketmouth first welcomed a lovechild shortly before his marriage to Elsie in 2010. The comedian who was extremely private with her finally showed her off to the world in 2017.

It was during an interview with Linda Ikeji that the comedian first admitted that he did have a child out of wedlock.


“I wouldn’t refer to her as a love child. She’s my child that people didn’t know of. Yes, I have a daughter with my ex-girlfriend. Its not a comfortable topic to discuss because I wouldn’t want to put anybody under pressure. As long as my family is happy and I’m on the same page with my wife, my siblings, my mum, my pastor and the family of my daughter, that’s all that actually matters.” he said
