He's pretty amazing. I thought the South African one was a bit off, though.

This is so cool. :) The Japanese accent was off, too, but I really enjoyed this. He's talented.

The amazing thing is even to have heard that many accents and identifythem enough to mimic them, at the age of 14. I haven't heard that many Chinese and Japanese speakinh English, and I'm 59! The Nigerian one is great; he gets the typical sound beautifully.

He's watched lots of interviews or movies. :)

I especially loved the fact that he did not only change the accent but the way he spoke as well. He actually managed to mimic the way Japanese people speak, but not the way they speak English. :) It's very hard to understand it because they have such a different way to pronounce certain letters. For example exit turns into e-cu-sit.

He could be an actor. I really adored his Northern English (Manchester) accent. :)
