Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama has offered to treat renowned Tanzanian drunkard, Pierre Konki Liquid with a fully-paid trip to England.
A video which has since gone viral in Tanzania, shows Konki Liquid speaking to Wanyama via a video call, when he visited Tanzanian singer Ommy Dimpoz, who is a very close pal of the footballer.
The two haven’t met before but it took Ommy’s introduction to get Konki Liquid chatting with Wanyama who surprised the celebrity drunkard with the invite.
Just like Kenya’s Githeriman, Konki Liquid became an instant celebrity a few months ago when someone shared a video of him at a local joint in Dar es Salaam.
In the video, a drunk Konki Liquid with a beer bottle in hand is heard uttering the words “Mama nakufa, nakufa”, a phrase that has now become popular with Tanzanians, including being featured in songs like Rayvanny’s hit Tetema.
Since then, due to his sudden popularity, Konki Liquid has been nailing endorsement deals with different companies as brand ambassador as well as making club appearances for a fee.
Celebrities have also contributed to his popularity by associating themselves with him.
