@_iamTeezaKF: “It’s about time his character was so flat. He didn’t give us what we know him for remember. Ding Dong on Rhythm City, that was Ronnie Nyakale. Personally, him and GP MaOrange must never play other characters but criminals from the hood.”

@MarciaTeee: “No, it’s about time. His character is boring. He’s so limited even his creativity around the lingo is limited because of his character. I wish him all the best.”

@Phindi_Moloi: “Great for him, Generations was lowering his character
