Lasizwe further stated that his character, the chronicles of Harrison, is a lot like him in real life - thus not experiencing any major hassles at transitioning into his on screen character.

"Harrison is similar to what I do, he is basically my everyday life. He is a character of different actors, he always changes and dresses up differently. We start shooting this month. 2020 is going to be an interesting year."

Lasizwe also made mention of the fact that although he's had a bit of acting experience with regards to his hilarious and popular skits on his YouTube channel, he is looking forward to acting on a much wider scale with ''the big dogs."
