"KB is the genius of the squad, he is the calm in the storm and, he tries to rationalize everything instead of acting the way other kids are acting, that is essentially who KB is."

Thabang said he can resonate with KB because he is 80% of who he is. The actor said he was excited when he got the role after his agent pranked him that he did not impress the show's makers.

"I went to the first audition and waited for 3 weeks and after that, I was told that I got a callback and my agency pranked me and said I flopped in the first audition, so I need to pull up my socks and when I got to the call back I did the best and I remember 2 days later I got a call when I was with my girlfriend and I was told that you for the role."

"It was a great experience, I feel like in this journey of acting I am still learning, I'm not really a pro yet even when I do become a pro I will be still learning, so I always pick up from everyone that I get to act with, in whatever show that I do, so it was a great experience learning wise."
