The striker has been a revelation in his debut Premier League season.
"I am very happy to play at Aston Villa," Benteke told the Birmingham Mail.
"I try to enjoy doing my job. When I come to the training ground I try to keep smiling because some people in their life have some hard jobs so we have to enjoy our jobs. That's why I try to be positive all of the time.
"When I came the fans gave me a lot of respect and I try to give it to them back on the pitch."
