The father of four said he and his wife agreed to end their marriage.
Some people however said the announcement was joke.
Speaking in a recent interview with a Ghana television station, TV3NewDay, Basketmouth said he is truly separated from his wife.
The 44-year-old comedian said: “I’m separated right now and people thought it was a joke but it wasn’t. And some people were like, ‘Do you want to promote a show?’ And I was like, you definitely do not know my design.
“I do not bring my personal matters on a public platform and put my personal things out there.
“But it was something that I needed to do and for reasons best known to me. And I did that. And yeah, we’re cool, everything is fine.”
When asked if it was before the 12 years, Basketmouth said: “No, it was actually after the 12 years. I completed the 12 years in November and that happened in December.”
