The comedian says he practises a lot of voices when he is at home so he can perfect his craft.

Tyson Ngubeni has captured the hearts of many social media users with his hilarious skits.

Ngubeni took over the internet when he impersonated American TV news reporter Bob O'Connor reporting on wall fences which are popularly known as stop nonsense.

The journalism and drama graduate says he practises a lot of voices when he is at home to perfect his art.

Naturally, I am quite introverted, when I am around new people I tend to be very withdrawn while soaking in everything that is happening.

Tyson Ngubeni, Comedian

I have a habit of meeting someone and going home and practising their voice.

Speaking about his yellow jacket, which he wears in most of his skits, Ngubeni says it helps brighten up his skin tone.

I'm not going to call myself a fashion icon but I can dress up when I want to dress up. The yellow helps brighten things, my complexion is between Wesley Snipes and eternal darkness.
