Folk Singer Ayrosh Could Be a Threat to Samosas in Kenya

Folk fusion star Ayrosh aka Mr Karikii Mani released a brand-new jam called Githambutha featuring rapper Xtatic. In the sultry music video, Ayrosh confesses to his unique ability to correctly deal with a Githambutha – Gikuyu for Samosa.

The matter is under investigation as authorities seek to establish how many Githambutha’s have faced Ayrosh’s wrath as well as the scale of the threat. In their words, the authorities have assured food lovers that “they will get to the bottom of the matter.”

Ayrosh has however reiterated that “The video is strictly about food, and any resemblance, whether implied or otherwise, is purely coincidental.”

The video has been received with mixed feelings with the vixens’ well-oiled bodies seemingly hitting a nerve, considering the high cost of cooking oil in the country. Some of the comments include:

“Hapa budget ilikua 6 million juu ya bei ya mafuta” – Kelvin Kaesa

 “Love this!”- Fena Gitu

“Body so oiled, US Military about to pull up on you guy. – Aleckie Ronald

“Wamejipaka mafuta kama night runners” – Verbstract
