Kenyan’s ‘horrible accent’ lights up duet act with American star

A video of a Kenyan woman singing alongside American singer Charlie Puth has gone viral and left many Kenyans on social media in stitches.

The video was posted by one Carol Sammy on her Facebook page on Tuesday and has so far been viewed more than 82,000 times and shared by more than 4,000 people.

An app called Smule allows musicians to record videos singing one half of a duet, leaving space for fans to record their own contributions then share the results online.

The Kenyan woman, Emily Munai, did a karaoke with Charlie Puth and performed together his hit One call away, but instead of her singing the right lyrics, she throws in words which are in Kikuyu accent. At one point Charlie points at her wondering what she is singing.
