Abisai acknowledges the hard work of Victor Wanyama

Sportpesa Mega Jackpot winner Samuel Abisai, who bagged himself Sh221 million has shared a photo of Tottenham's Victor Wanyama in an effort to show Wanyama’s journey from poverty to stardom.

In a post shared on his Facebook account, one could tell Abisai was referring to a video posted on YouTube early last year titled “The Lion of Muthurwa” that was talking about Wanyama’s story of rags to riches.

"From 'muthurwa' to one of best defensive midfielder in EPL...impossible is nothing.” he posted.

In the documentary, Wanyama revealed his tireless efforts and genuine love of football, and also hardship to become a global footballing star.

He once told the Telegraph: “When I started, I couldn’t wear boots. I loved playing with bare feet. Every boy in Africa starts like that – bare feet in the streets. I won a pair of boots in a tournament (aged 10). When I wore them for the first time, it was hard. I took them off in the match and continued on bare feet.”

But what is certain is that both are living their dream, differently.  Samuel Abisai is the newest millionaire in town while Wanyama is flying the Kenyan flag high abroad and also not forgetting the two are coming from western Kenya.
