NBA superstar Stephen Curry became the latest American star to acknowledge love from a Kenyan.
Yesterday, one Kenyan on Twitter, Karimi wa Kinyua informed him about a Kenyan matatu that has been branded with his images. It is common in Kenyan matatu culture to brand the buses with famous and popular figures, from sportsmen to singers to politicians.
“Yo’ @StephenCurry30, I thought you should know that there is a matatu (public transport) here in Nairobi, Kenya that pays homage to you!” Karimi tweeted.
He probably hoped it might catch Steph Curry’s attention, but never thought he would reply owing to the thousands of notifications he obviously gets.
But a few hours later, the Golden State Warriors players replied.
“So much love!!!!” he replied in a short tweet.
