Introducing the new weekly feature. Who, what, when, where and why interviews with special guests and celebrities. We will keep this brief and only ask a few questions.
This week, first and foremost is my friend's cousin and comedian, philanthropist and actor Hussain Manawer.
1. Who is your inspiration?
Inspiration, I cant say there's one person that inspires me there have been a lot that have inspired me along my journey. But i am more inspired by positive things that happen around me, and i am lucky enough to witness such as charity, good deeds and helping out others. That inspires me to do what i do, with regards to a person I'd say Will Smith, I love how he has always been himself on
/ off screen and that's something i aspire to do.
2. What has been your proudest moment?
Proudest moment, ah that's a hard one I have a top 3, first one is climbing mount Kilimanjaro, something I never thought would be possible, secondly running with the Olympic torch, and thirdly being cast to make an appearance in east enders as myself with billy Mitchell which was a big moment for me and all those around me.
3. When did you know that this is what you wanted to do?
Around a year ago, I met Kevin Hart and things changed (without sounding cringe) I was at work and was called to interview him and took a day off to do it, I loved it so much and never wanted to go back! Nobody knows this but I actually did the interview on behalf of a third party who didn't want the footage in the end. So I kept it and uploaded it on my channel, the maddest thing is it was the second video I uploaded and for it to be with a legend like him, I was over the moon.
4. Where do you see HussainsHouse in five years time?
Hopefully on TV 5 nights a week on a national channel either in the UK or US.
5. Why your House?
Because I've always had so much fun at home, with my siblings, parents friends that come over the vibe is just always there! I just wanted to share this with the world
6: Which interview do you wish you could do again?
Everyone thinks I would say Kevin hart, because he is the biggest, but for me the moment that really stole my heart was when I met a US radio personality called 'Charlamagne' who is known for being notoriously rude and blunt and famous for arguments on air with drake and Kanye when I walked into the room he looked at me and said 'omg I'm a fan, thank you for coming Hussain' and that was mental I watch a lot of his shows if not everyone and for him to acknowledge me and show me that respect was unreal, and because of that I could have got more real-ness out of him in in the interview but I played it safe. So if it was any interview I could do it again, it would be him!
Thank you very much Hussain. Always good to hear from people who inspire and aim for good things.
Any recommendations on who i should interview next week? Please do let me know.
