A viral video of President Uhuru Kenyatta walking alone without his bodyguards has brought many reactions across all social media platforms, especially due to the reaction of singer and actor Pascal Tokodi.
Actor Pascal Tokodi shared the video of the Head of State wearing his signature African print shirt, black trousers and a black face mask covering his nose and mouth while holding a long cane on his left hand.
Tokodi and his pal who were driving by were taken aback and had to slow down, with Tokodi asking him,
“How Are You Doing Sir?
The Head of State waved back and gave them a thumbs up and Tokodi decided to market Selina, a TV swahili soap where he is starring, “Ona Selina, On Maisha Magic East, Ona Selina,” shouted Tokodi to which President Uhuru nodded and said,“Asante.”, ….“Nimeona.”
Tokodi posted the video with the caption, “Seizing the Moment”

However, this did not go well with most tweeps who felt that he would have done more, while others came to his aid. Here is what Kenyans on twitter had to say about the Viral video;
You meet the PRESIDENT taking a walk and all you want him to do for you is to watch you on Selina Maisha Magic East? Kenyan youths have their priorities upside down and they want the PRESIDENT to appoint them into Government positions yet he knows they can't even pitch in 10secs

Pascal Tokodi (Nelson) telling President Uhuru Kenyatta to watch "Selina", a show in which he is the lead actor shows us that we still have actors who are not beggers, and strongly believe in their hustles.

'Ona Selina' is the same as 'support my hustle', and is much better than 'toa kakitu'. #SwalaNyeti

Pascal Tokodi of Selina respects and loves his job that is why he asked H.E UHURU Kenyatta to watch the show. But some ninjas out here are criticizing him for that. Kwani mlitaka aambie nini Rais Wenu? Amwite STATEHOUSE ama amfanye mchezaji wakulipwa mitandaoni?

Y’all talking as if Pascal Tokodi had a one hour sit down with The President. Did you want him to ask about the BBI? Ama who he will endorse in 2022? I would have done exactly what pascal did, support my hustle, because that’s what pays my bills.

I can't believe Kenyans are having words about Pascal Tokodi telling the president to watch Selina series on Maisha Magic – a show in which he is the lead actor, when he accidentally bumped into him yesterday. That's marketing. That's his hustle. Kenyans wacheni mchezo.
