Video: The rise of Kenya's 'Peter Drury'

After two years of mimicking legendary football commentator Peter Drury, popular comedian Meshack Kiprop Biwott has earned international recognition.

The comedian, better known as Arap Uria, was featured in an interview on the Premier League live show last week.

During the interview, Arap Uria got the surprise of his life when a video of Drury praising the 27-year-old comedian for perfectly lip-syncing his commentaries was played.

When The Standard reached Uria on the telephone, the internet sensation claimed he did not see the incident coming. He said he was overwhelmed. 

“I was surprised because I never thought such a moment would come. I never thought that one Drury would ever praise my work, let alone know my name,” said Uria.

In the video, the 54-year–old British journalist acknowledges the comedian’s videos, describing them as terrifically funny.
