He says people should prepare for a lot more "broken English" on the show.

Shangaan Disco musician Penny Penny’s reality show premiere set social media buzzing last night. Papa Penny Ahee gives fans a glimpse into the colourful, extraordinary disco king’s world. However, the Mzansi Magic show had some people making light of Penny Penny's English pronunciations.

But Papa Penny could not care less about what people have to say, he tells us.

"I am not an English [speaker],” Penny Penny hits back.

“How I speak English does not change my life. I have been all over the world and people understand me nicely."

He says people should prepare for a lot more "broken English" on the show in the coming weeks, and they should just sit back and enjoy it.

Penny Penny says the show has relaunched his career because young people who missed his music reign get to experience him all over again.

The singer who is a father-of-18 is the 68th child himself – his father who had a whopping 27 wives!

Catch Papa Penny Ahee at 8 pm on Wednesdays on Mzansi Magic (DStv 161).
