Basketmouth performs stand-up on plane

04 October 2013, 12:35

Abuja - Basketmouth entertained passengers on board a Virgin Atlantic flight from Lagos to London on October 2 to celebrate Nigeria's 53rd year of independence.
We know comedians can't stop joking but cracking people up 30 000 feet in the air is certainly a unique experience.

That's what Basketmouth did on October 2, 2013 with passengers flying Virgin Atlantic flight from Lagos to London.

The exclusive performance was apparently part of the airline's way of celebrating Nigeria's 53rd year of independence.

The company says it is another innovative way of giving their customers exciting service.

"The Virgin Atlantic spirit is all about shaking things up and doing things a little differently. We like to give our passengers a truly unforgettable flying experience and having Basketmouth on board the flight is another example of us doing things that other airlines wouldn't even think of. It's also a fantastic way to celebrate Nigerian Independence Day," Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Atlantic founder and president says.
