Celeb edition with Bernadette Morgan

Kabelo Dipholo
OPTIMIST: Bernadette Morgan

During the infamous Covid-19 lock-downs she was one of the few people who made them bearable through her hilarious Facebook videos.

Initially going by name Datch Quin, Bernadette Morgan will eventually change to MmaMax and eventually Quin of Laughter.

With her changing profile names, came more daring and imaginative online content that earned her followers, friends and enemies in equal measure.

Bernadette was born in Mahalapye, and raised in Selebi-Phikwe.

I was born way before the arrival of Facebook on 20th June, and my parents named be ‘Bobo’ a name I prefer to this day.

I’m a jolly and bubbly person who has nothing but love for other people at all times.

1. Do you remember your the first time you did a funny Facebook video clip?

Hhhmm…I cannot recall.

I just remember being posted on the Youth of Botswana page by some guy admiring my outfit with my then boyfriend.

That’s when I started having a large following.

I honestly write anything that comes to my mind.

I’m not afraid to speak my mind on anything.

When I know the facts, I’ll tell it like it is.

3. Are there any projects you’re currently working on?

Yes please, but I’d rather not say anything for now.

4.You had a very public relationship with your ex-husband, and went through a public and nasty divorce. If given a chance what would you do differently?

Absolutely nothing.

5.You were also a victim of cyber bullying following the divorce. Can you describe how it felt like when everyone was bashing you?

Well, I honestly found it funny because I’m very playful.

It was never my intention to hurt anyone.

Okay! Sorry bafex and Hardy gents tip.

My kids! I live for those girls.

When I’m with them, my frustrations just vanish.

I can never choose a man over my kids. Never!

I’ll get back with Max the day I see a chicken with teeth holding a hand bag and crossing the road.

I love villages not cities, so none of the above.

11. Name five things people don’t know about you.
