Actually – The literal meaning of this word signifies that something is present or exists in reality, but it is often used incorrectly to add an extra punch to the sentence.
Basically – This word should be used to signify a simple or fundamental point, instead people often use it incorrectly in a statement to add weight and instill a sense of finality.

Lady GaGa turned down the opportunity to perform with Madonna.
Madge had asked Gaga if she wanted to join her on stage in their hometown of New York for her current world tour. But Gaga was forced to decline because she has "prior commitments" with her own "Born This Way Ball" world tour.
Gaga's manager said: "Madonna called to ask GaGa to perform with her at Yankee Stadium. Her manager reached out to us and said Madonna would like GaGa to perform with her. She really wished she could do it. She said, 'If we do it, let's donate the money to charity'. But GaGa's committed to her own tour."
