For over ten years, the two comedians have had a tense relationship which has had several people waging to settle their differences, to no avail.

Basketmouth said that he had also forgiven him for his offences against him.

In his post he wrote:

To my guy AY I don’t know if my apology is still valid right now but if it is please forgive me for whatever I have done or said in the past that affected you in any way please forgive me. And I want you to know that I have forgiven you for whatever you did or said knowingly or unknowingly, it’s gone and I just want us to live in peace and harmony.”

Now to all the people in the industry and beyond that I have offended over time knowingly or unknowingly I say this to you right now from the bottom of my heart I am genuinely sorry please forgive me and to the people who would have accused me of doing things that affected their career in one way or the other I’m not going to accept or deny these allegations God knows the truth but regardless please forgive me I beg you from the bottom of my heart.”
