DRUM spoke to him about his sucess:

When and how did you start with the videos?

I started doing these videos in February it was never meant to be comedy or anything satire I did a promotional video for an event I had that month and people loved the video so much that I had to do another one and yeah I've been doing them ever since.

What inspires your content?

The stuff that happens in my life everyday and I also get inspiration from South Africans we might not believe it but we are really funny people and we do some weird things, so I think that's what makes people relate to the stuff I talk about on my videos.

What make your videos and jokes stand out from the rest of upcoming comedians?

I believe we all have a funny bone in us and what makes my stories different is the accent I use and also the fact that I'm not scared to speak my mind about issues that affect my life. My stories come across as rants more than just me trying to sound funny.

Which one of the uploaded videos is your favourite?

My favourite video is the Perfume video which I believe is the most popular video I've ever made.

How does it feel when you realise that people love and share your videos?

It feels amazing and it's also encouraging to know that I'm not weird; whatever it is I'm going through in my life or the things I see, I'm not the only one who sees these things or experiences them, but yeah I love it even though it's full of pressure to do more and be better.
