Besides his professional work, he is making his fans laugh on his Facebook page. The actor created the character of ‘Aunty Betty’. Betty is someone that loves talking and her ear is glued to a phone! Sometimes her pronunciation is off, but she doesn’t realise it! 

The actor from Malmesbury said: ”I went through my videos and came across this one. I created this character like two years ago but never posted anything of her. Well, here goes. Dié is Betty."

Have a good day... Okay, buh, buh... baai!
