Kenyan have not taken kindly requests by a local radio station for donations from the public to enable a young football fan achieve his dream of becoming a presenter.

John Onkendi, the young boy in question, first captured public attention this week when a video of him naming players in the English Premier League went viral.

In the viral clip, the barefooted Onkendi correctly named Manchester United’s and Chelsea’s first team players.
