According to a Times Live report on the 12th of January, Papa Penny Penny said, “I am not an English man and I won’t change for anyone. I am an African man and I am proud of that. I was not born speaking English but I speak communicative English and that should be enough. People who speak to me understand me, so I don’t think it is a problem.”
This was responding to sour fans who bashed Papa Penny on social media after his debut reality show on Mzansi Magic called “Papa Penny Ahee”. This Wednesday night was no different. The show once again, sparked a language debate amongst viewers.
While only a minority mocked Papa Penny’s “broken English”, Papa has a full on army of fans who support him:
There is something so raw and authentic about #PapaPennyAhee ❤?
