Kenyans on Twitter are divided as to whether it was the right thing to say to President Uhuru
Actor and musician Pascal Tokodi is in a bit of a quagmire with Kenyans online after he had a chance encounter with President Uhuru Kenyatta. He shared a video of the President taking a walk outside State House in which he can be heard asking the Head of State to watch a show he stars in called “Selina.”
So these guys Spotted President Uhuru Kenyatta taking a walk. Walikua na chance ya kumuuliza 2 billion za leo zimemwagwa wapi, but they requested him to watch Selena. Smh ?? #JKLive

The video has since gone viral launching an online argument as to whether it was the best thing to say during a chance encounter with the President. As it stands, Kenyans are divided on the subject.
After not sijui 10 secs of meeting Uhunye and not grilling him about the economy, Pascal Tokodi is now Kenya’s number 1 problem.
Even those who voted for Uhunye thrice are throwing stones at Pascal.

Pascal tokodi is a lead actor on selina, the show pays his bills, he met the president for less than 10seconds….he asked the president to watch selina and support his hustle, absolutely nothing wrong with that https://t.co/MrpB6Ao8QC

But seriously speaking @sheeyi, will the president watch Selina? Will he? Priorities and missed opportunities….call a spade a spade….

Pascal Tokodi reacted the way 99% of normal human beings would have reacted in that situation.
We all tend to get a little excited, nervous and giggly in the presence of powerful people; even the ones we don't like.

Irrespective of which side of the divide you lean towards, the fact remains that everyone involved in the making and airing of the TV show “Selina” is currently enjoying their moment in the sun.
