Kenyan comedian Arap Uria has finally met with English football commentator Peter Drury.
Arap, whose real name is Meshack Kiprop, rose to fame on social media for mimicking him and some other football commentators and met Drury at the ongoing World Cup in Qatar.
On Friday, the Kenyan posted a photo of himself in the Middle East nation, requesting to meet the iconic commentator, months after Drury praised him for his lipsyncing act and said he would love to see him.
“Hello Peter Drury, it’s Arap Uria, I am in Qatar and I would love to meet you,” he wrote on a placard in a tweet which attracted Drury’s co-commentator Jim Belgin who offer to help him.
