Kenyan singer B Classic 006 has dropped a new jam dubbed 'Omanyala' as a tribute to Kenya's hero and Africa's fastest runner, Ferdinand Omanyala.

Omanyala has become a household name ever since he set a new African record and the world's second-fastest time this year over 100m when he clocked 9.77 secs at the Kip Keino Classic in September 2021.

The new song by B Classic is a fitting one which showcases the superstar's record-breaking races on the track over the last few months.

The artist praises Omanyala for putting Kenya on the short distance races map given that we are world renown for long-distance races.

He says the man has single-handedly managed to make Kenyans proud of their motherland and has had fans from across the world begging for photos of him.

He sings, "Wakenya tunaringa na we, wazungu wanaomba picha nawe. Umefanya Kenya leo, tunavimba tunatamba leo. Tuko na raha tuna enjoy sisi kama wakenya." 

According to the Taita Taveta based star, he has been following Omanyala's progress for a while and he is impressed by how far he has come.

"Kwa Mda Sana been watching my Brother @ferdiomanyala doing his thing , Nimekua Nikiona How he is improving everyday, Setting records. Nakubali Sana Kila Mtu who is representing our country well," B Classic's post read in part.

He added, "For the Love of what Omanyala is doing, nimetolea zawadi ya wimbo.
Hii wimbo ni ya kila mkenya who is working hard to fly our flag higher na pia supporting talents za Kenya. Proud of you Kaka (This song is my gift to Omanyala and also a dedication to every Kenyan working hard, proud of you brother.)"

Last weekend, Omnanyala had a glorious time in front of his home fans at Kasarani stadium, when he beat Olympic 100m silver medalist, American Fred Kerley to set a world lead of 9.85 during the Kip Keino Classic.

The race sent President Kenyatta, Raila Odinga and thousands of Kenyans into jubilation as Omanyala once again cemented his name as the indisputable king of 100m race.
