Cape Town - Comedian Skhumba Hlophe is known for being larger than life, and his jokes can often be quite controversial.
In a recent Instagram post the comedian might have crossed the line (or not) with Papa Penny by posting a picture of himself wearing a stocking and a ponytail similar to Papa Penny’s signature hairdo.
In the hilarious snap Skhumba can be seen rocking the ponytail in an orange outfit while on the set of SABC 1’s Thandeka’s Diary.
Back in 2016 the Kaya FM presenter found himself in hot water when a comment he made about protesting female Wits University students sparked social media outrage. A petition to have him removed from the airwaves circulated online shortly after.
Speaking to DRUM the Tembisa-born star admitted his humour does sometimes cross the line but says that’s the point.
“What is comedy without risks?” he said. “When you joke that Xhosa men are stingy and Gwede Mantashe has oversized suits and a funny voice, aren’t you crossing the line? If it’s a joke, it will cross the line.”
