The Secrets And All The Fun

In an interview with the Wayans brother, Oprah wanted to know the fact that why Damon Wayans was called his elder brother Kenan’s third eye. 

To which Kenan replied as he is like the life-saver for his brothers and is the one who will go all the way to be there with them. 

Oprah then concernedly asked them what it was like in their house as they have a massive family with a total of 11 members in it. To which one of them responded crowded. 

Oprah was desperately trying to know the source of their jokes and laugh to which Kenan responded that the more laugh came from disaster than they are trying to make each other laugh. 

Kenan than shared about Damon and how he is a science phenomenon as he suddenly grew 8 inches in only one summer. 

To which Damon responded, he used to feel freaky and hide his arms and keep them in his pocket all the time as his arms used to come down to his knees.
