It all started when it emerged that Harambee Stars were not given the welcome they should in Lagos. Kenya’s national team was booked in a two star hotel, and left to train in a dilapidated school compound.
When news of Harambee Star’s treatment broke, Kenyans on Twitter (#KOT), came up with the hashtag #SomeoneTellNigeria, which was little about the football, and a lot to do with afro sinema, and their accent.
Here’s how it went down.
