‘Bee man’ video causes buzz in north (VIDEO)

An amateur beekeeper has become an unlikely source of online entertainment within the Turkish Cypriot community after posting videos of himself donning a hat covered in bees.

A Famagusta resident Yilmaz Sahin – who has been an amateur beekeeper for 24 years – initially shared videos of his bees on social media accompanied with messages of support them and the need to better protect them. His videos were later picked up by the media and his popularity has since surged in the north of Cyprus.

“I love bees! Bees are the source of my happiness!” Sahin said in one video.

He went on to warn people not to attempt to repeat his stunt saying: “It can be extremely dangerous! You need to know the creatures otherwise you could it could cost you your life.”
