- Loyiso Madinga has been entertaining South Africa for many years and is a favourite with comedy lovers
- He showed off his acting ability in Queen Sono and now has big and fabulous dreams of a great acting career
- Loyiso hopes to one day play the role of Mike Tyson in a biopic
Local comedian - and now actor - Loyiso Madinga has a winning attitude: go big or go home.
He is best known for his comedy as he became famous as a stand-up comedian, but has also shown that he can act as well.
Loyiso pulled off a stellar performance in the Netflix African first, Queen Sono, and it looks like he's ready for even greater success.
The comedian, a short man whose exact height isn't known, wants to play the role of Mike Tyson, the boxing legend, in a biopic.
Loyiso shared this aspiration of his in a very funny video clip and although he acts like its a serious dream of his, he is likely joking around. We think.
In the clip, Loyiso explains:
"So, I am going to be playing Mike Tyson in his upcoming biopic, Becoming Tyson.”
At this point, the video cuts to Pearl Thusi, his co-star in Queen Sono, and shows how seriously she was taking the comedian's dream.
The video also shows other famous people saying 'no' to the poor man's hopes of making it big in a movie about Mike.
But he insists he could do it.
"Just hear me out, I believe that you need to be ready for the opportunity before it presents itself.
"So, if they do make a Mike Tyson biopic I will be the only person in the world who's ready to take the role of the baddest motherf*cker that ever did live."
