Last week at the height of #SomeoneTellNigeria and #SomeoneTellKenya, Nigerian comedian Klint the Drunk was singled out by Kenyans for his hard hitting comments.
This was mostly because he is a regular in Nairobi, where he often attends the Night of a Thousand Laughs, the event that brings together Africa’s biggest comedians.
This was what the comedian allegedly tweeted then.
The Only Positive thing in Kenya is H.I.V
A burnt Ghanian = KENYA
Dear Kenyans, I know now you feel neglected, bad and rejected! But twit-fighting us WON’T put you on the africa map!! YOU ARE NOT A COUNTRY
Skeletons + Black Paint = Kenyans
When Nairobi Wire broke the story, Kenyans took to social media, where they strongly condemned the comedian.
Here are some tweets.

@klint D drunk: It was so irresponsible of you citing Kenya as one of the pathetic countries when you have Boko Haram still terrorising you – Kenneth Olayo
Word might have gotten to the drunk that Kenyans were not very happy. We thought he would delete the tweets and maybe issue an apology, but the comedian showed Kenyans the middle finger. In just two tweets, Klint the Drunk said to hell with Kenya, to hell with the night of a thousand laughs.
Here are the tweets he retweeted.
(RT) Someone said the monkeys in Temple run are Kenyans
(RT) No Matter How Far Kenyans Run, They Can Never Run away From Hunger!
UPDATE: We Understand @KlintTheDrunk, with over 136,000 followers may be an imposter account. The account we’re made to believe is the real one is @mistaklint, with only 800 followers.
It seems Nigeria has a bigger impersonation problem than us.
