Kenyans are unhappy with British model Naomi Campbell for using a Nigerian song in a video meant to promote Kenya as a tourist destination.
Campbell, 50, was last month appointed as Magical Kenya international tourism ambassador by Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala to market the country as an ideal tourism and travel destination.
The celebrity shared the video with her over 10 million followers on Instagram on Wednesday but Kenyans on social media took issue with the use of a Nigerian background song, saying she should have used a song by a Kenyan. The video shows different sceneries, local cuisine, white sandy beaches, and other attractions that one can enjoy in Kenya.
Below are some reactions from Kenyans online.
@Dreymwangi tweeted: “Si ata Naomi Campbell angeeka lamba lolo kama background music instead ya Maserati.”
