, NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 27 – It’s a WhatsApp conversation that started with a message of goodwill to Fred and Marion, who were celebrating their anniversary before the conversation went south.
Two members in the group Embakasi Prayer Cell congratulate the couple before, the now famous Bro Ocholla accidentally sent a message, contrary to the topic of the day on the group.
“You seem to love my voice. This voice will whisper asking how you are feeling when you will be having your orgasm at cloud nine,” reads Bro Ocholla’s message.
In shock, a member of the group writes “ops!” and then went ahead to write “Bro Ocholla?” as if asking, really?
A remorseful Bro Ocholla was quick to apologise in three consecutive messages
One of the WhatsApp group members immediately took a screenshot and shared it. By Tuesday morning, the screenshot had gone viral.
Kenyans on Twitter and leading corporates picked up the conversations which soon become a trending topic.
The reactions range from mockery, judgments and approvals.
