Thando Thabethe chats to Tyler Perry about the new film

947 Presenter, Thando Thabethe got the chance to interview actor, writer, director and producer Tyler Perry on his new feature film, A Madea Homecoming.

I break all the rules in writing. I break all the rules in what a comedy should be, a drama should be. I just like to tell the story the way I want to. And I want to make sure we are making the points.

Tyler Perry, actor, writer, director & producer

I want you to know, for everybody, in South Africa, we look at you and you are an absolute beacon of light and of hope. There is an interview of yours where we spoke about an 'insatiable fire and desire' that you had inside of you.
