Siyabulela Deli (21) is an actor, comedian and presenter from Port Elizabeth who has gained internet fame as "TaFire". As TaFire, Siyabulela makes 60-second skits in English, Afrikaans and Xhosa to accommodate all races.

The first TaFire skit was inspired by a 2016 episode of the consumer rights television show, Speak Out. TaFire made a video titled "Imbiza" to respond to the internet meme. 

With the raging popularity of the Speak Out episode, TaFire saw an opportunity to show off his skills.

“I have always had a passion for comedy, and this was my chance to showcase my talent. Social media gave me great feedback with the skits, and I currently have over 100 000 followers who laugh and share these skits daily. Most people say that they often camp on my page to see the next video”, says TaFire.
