I deliver my comedy in freestyle, whereby I use things I see, especially when I’m invited for a programme. Also, I am very charismatic on stage. I always make sure that my starting and ending is at the peak before leaving the stage.

Gordons is my mentor. I love his voice command on the microphone. You must want to listen to him because his voice commands attention.

My gain is that I am living a good life with comedy. I am reaching out to souls that are seriously depressed and weighed down by their challenges through my comedy.

Comedy opens doors of acceptance. Everybody wants to have you. They want to be your friend and also associate with you. It takes away sadness and replaces it with laughter.
What don’t you like about comedy?
I don’t think there is anything I don’t like about comedy, because if I don’t like my job then why I am still doing it?
