Larry Madowo: Too many people asked me if I had weed or wanted some

Larry Madowo is offended because he has been mistaken for a drug peddler and a drug user. The NTV anchor says his skin color is the reason why people think he’s into drugs.

Larry Madowo is enjoying his vacation in different countries in Europe. He recently traveled to Spain to watch Michael Olunga and Lionel Messi in action.

“‪Good morning from Girona ?? I’m here to watch @ogadaolunga’s team take on Getafe,” wrote Larry Madowo when he was in Girona.

Larry watched Olunga’s team Girona take on Getafe before he caught a train to Barcelona to watch Barca play against Deportivo La Coruña at Camp Nou.

‪”Watching Messi live for the first time, from the nosebleed seats. Camp Nou is only half full though ‬#wanderlust #goeverywhere #doeverything #spain,” wrote Larry when he was in Barcelona.

Europeans have preconceived notions about black people

Larry Madowo says multiple people in Barcelona asked him whether he wanted weed or selling some. Larry was mistaken for a drug peddler/user because he is black and was also wearing a hood. Madowo also had unshaven chins and cheeks that gave the impression of a drug dealer.

“Too many people asked me if I had weed, or wanted some. I come here every time I’m in Barcelona because it’s busy and beautiful but I don’t remember this ever happening before. That is one ugly side of being black in Europe #wanderlust #goeverywhere #doeverything,” wrote Larry Madowo.

5 sports academies that have produced Kenya’s most seasoned footballers including Olunga and Wanyama

Europe and South America are the only continents that have won world cup in the history of international football. The main reason why these two continents produce the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, and keep on winning world cups is because they nurture football talents from very early age.

Below is a list of 5 football academies that have produced Kenya’s top cream footballers.

Michael Olunga destroys Iraqi goalkeeper as he score beautiful goal in Kenya match against Iraq (Video)

Harambee Stars traveled to Iraq to play against the Lions of Mesopotamia (Iraq national football team) in an international friendly match.

The match was played at Basra Sports City in Basra, Southern Iraq on Thursday September 5th. Well, Iraq won the match 2-1 but Olunga scored a beautiful consolation goal for Stars to take his tally to 12 international goals for the national team.

There were a lot of defensive blunders on the part of Harambee Stars and they were punished for it in the 17th minute when Iraq was awarded a penalty which they converted.

The Lions of Mesopotamia dominated first half and were rewarded with another goal, the second came on the 45th minute which was scored with a header.

Stars had a couple of chances to score at least three goals in the second half. Olunga wasted an open chance on 68th minute when he hit the side net. The striker once again had another chance on the 76th minute but he failed to tap home an cross that was heading towards him in the penalty box.

Olunga however redeemed himself in 85th minute when he scored a beautiful goal from approximately 20 yards away. The Iraqi goalkeeper must have thought the Kenyan striker would pass the ball since he was far but instead Olunga fired the short to the far right of the goal post and scored.

Watch the video below to see how all the three goals were scored in that game:

Kenya’s second highest paid footballer Michael Olunga shows off his beautiful girlfriend (Photos)

22 year old Harambee Stars most potent striker Michael Olunga has introduced the pretty lady who holds the key to his heart.

Michael Olunga relocated to China in February 2017 to join Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng in a move that saw him become Kenya’s second highest paid footballer after Victor Wanyama who earns £70,000 a week or Kes 36 million a month.

Olunga pockets a handsome salary of Kes 12 million per month. With this kind of money the Harambee Stars striker could date the Kim Kardashians of the world but the 22 year has stuck to his pretty girlfriend – Grace whom she met before he started earning crazy guap.

The first time Olunga introduced Grace to the public was in December 2016 when the lass celebrated her birthday.

“May every soul you touch bring comfort and peace. May every friend you hug bring joy and solace. On your special day, my wish for you is to have everything that your heart desires because you are worth it. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ENGINEER,” Olunga’s message to his girlfriend when she turned a year older.

12 million monthly salary and he drives this… Michael Olunga disappoints fans with the German machine he drives (Photos)

Harambee Stars most potent striker Michael Olunga is already creating the impression that he’s ‘economical’ with the millions that his Chinese club is paying him.

The Kenyan international moved to Chinese Super League side Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng in January 2017 in a record transfer fee of Kes 467 million.

According to sources privy to the deal, the Chinese club splashed out more than Sh1.2 billion to acquire his services. Half of the amount – Sh500 million was the transfer fee paid to Olunga’s former club.

The other half went to agent fees and Olunga’s handsome salary of Sh 12 Million per month for the duration of his four-year contract.

Olunga hasn’t made headline for his prowess on the pitch yet (he has only played twice for his club) but he’s sure making tongues wag with the German machine he was seen posing on.

Olunga in action for his Chinese club

The Harambee Star striker was seen posing in front of a black Porsche Cayenne believed to be his – the SUV costs some 6 million shillings, a sum Olunga can comfortably afford with half of his monthly salary.

Critics were quick to tease Olunga to buy a car that matched his status and income, some said he should upgrade to drive Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Aston Martins and other expensive European sport cars.
