See pictures from comic's birthday party

The comedian was joined by his friends and other members of his family as he marked his 39th year birthday.

The comic who recently received an award in the Savanna Pan-African Comic Award category at the 2017 Savannah Comic Choice Awards held at the Lyric Theatre in Johannesburg, South Africa was captured in some fun moments with them.

Some of the guests in attendance include Flatmates co-actor, Kayode Peters, his wife, Elsie Okpocha who sent him a hearty birthday message on Thursday, September 14, 2017 via Instagram.

Elsie wrote in her note, "The sweet love of my sweet life is a year older!!!!!!!! You know how much i love you babe. Happy birthday to you Boyfriend."

The comedian's Comic Choice Awards honour is a pointer to the amount of influence he has outside the shores of Nigeria.

His decision to tailor the content of his jokes to specific audience has been one of the reasons for his success.

He told the BBC's Peter Okocha in a January 2017 interview that he often tweaks his ideas to focus on the culture of the society where he is performing.

“I try as much as possible to make my materials universal. So that way, I don’t goof.

"When I come the UK to do my gigs or even in America, I try as much as possible to avoid saying anything about Nigeria.

"These guys don’t know anything about Nigeria. My jokes are always universal, which is the reason I can easily break into those grounds," he said.

His ability to connect with different type of audiences saw him headline various gigs in countries like South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Zambia, Kenya, Ethiopia and more.

Basketmouth's impressive comedy skills made him suitable for the roles of show host which has become one of the major highlights in his career.
