How did you come about your style?
I always tell people that I am the son of the king of rhymes which is God because He was the first person to do rhymes. If you look at John chapter 1 verse 1, He did rhymes.

My look alone distinguishes me from other comedians. I also do rhymes and music unlike other comedians.

It's not. It is going to be twice in a year or more than that.
