Maybe mockney? XD

Voice and accent acting is really hard.

From 0 to 10: rate how cockney I am.

I'd probably give you a 5. To me, this sounds like the accent of someone not from a native English-speaking family background who has lived in the south of England, quite possibly London area, for a number of years. So, it is maybe not a million miles from what you are trying to achieve, though it would not be identifiable as native-sounding cockney. Overall it is a bit of a mishmash, and there seem to be inconsistent non-British influences. In one place it almost sounds Afro-Caribbean, and yet in another place it sounds almost Australian or South African. Americans who try to impersonate British accents can often end up sounding Australian to British ears. (Not that I mean you sound American, just that "Australianisation" is one way that a British accent can go wrong.) A famously bad cockney accent was that of American actor Dick Van Dyke in the film Mary Poppins. This often features in "worst ever accent" lists.

If you are attempting other accents in future, it may be best not to tell people in advance which accent you are trying to emulate. When one is listening, it is hard not to be influenced by this knowledge.

Could kindly tell me in which part of the sentence sounds Australian and Afro - Carribean, please?
