Speaking on the matter, Penny Penny said he appreciates the warm reception the show got from the public. He added that the debate about his spoken English does not give him any concern. Instead, he will continue to be himself irrespective of what people have to say.
“I am not an English man and I won’t change for anyone. I am an African man and I am proud of that. I was not born speaking English but I speak communicative English and that should be enough. People who speak to me understand me, so I don’t think it is a problem.”

Thus, they wouldn’t mind shooting more for the viewing pleasure of fans. So, haters can go ahead and hang themselves because they will be seeing more of Penny Penny on TV.
