    The grace of god is truly not fair… I am happy for him, respect his grind and hustle however this guy is dry as shit….. At times he nails it but most times he is boring… And I am not a hater I swear…

      I agree with you. He is not funny and his delivery is dry. However, I respect his hustle and recognize how huge and wonderful it is to be profiled by BBC. With 300k followers, I guess there are people who actually find him funny.
