Content creator, Joe Ben Nyokabi's life might have changed forever after he met Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition presidential running mate, Martha Karua.
For those who have been living under a rock, Ben is the man behind the now-viral video where he is mimicking Martha Karua.
Ben shot to fame the very minute he uploaded the video on TikTok, mimicking Martha Karua's popular campaign slogans.
In the clip is head shouting, "Asimio....Asimio! Harooo! Raira ni msarendo!"
The video quickly circulated across all social media platforms and went on to garner close to 800,000 views on TitkTok, in just a week.
Ben met Martha on Friday morning during a photo session and was in the company of human rights activist, Boniface Mwangi who shared videos and photos of the latest celebrity in town.
Taking to his Twitter page, Boni said Ben's life might have changed given that prior to meeting Karua, he had rent arrears and didn't have a job.
He wrote, “As of this morning @NyokabiJoe didn’t have a job and had rent arrears. He says he did the harooo TikTok video hoping to get 10 views but to his surprise, it went viral. He didn’t get any pay but his friends thought he had “made it!” Today, his life changed thanks to @MarthaKarua.”
In another video, Ben is seen hanging out with Karua and trying to recreate the now-viral video which left the people present in stitches.
