How it all started with Comedy
Simunye ‘Church Boy’ started preaching in his teens since 2009, he is a youth pastor at popular multi denomination church Apostle Faith Mission (AFM) who also has funny bone.
He is developing his career as a Christian comedian. Contrary to popular belief, he grew in the church as a very serious guy not the one we have come to know. His unique style of delivery makes him stand out for sure as comedian. The ‘umvuzo challenge’ video (click to watch) below went viral on social media sparking more interest in his comic gift.
Growing up in northern KwaZulu Natal’s in Empangeni did not limit him. Having studied at UKZN towards a Biological sciences degree, he moved to Johannesburg to do an apprenticeship and began to work as a Technician. He was away from his local church at AFM so he started making videos reminiscing about church while on his lunch breaks at work imitating some pastors.
Simunye’s motto is God is a serious God but not a boring God. You can still laugh even if ungumzalwane.
