Paul Ogada is the winner of SportPesa's biggest ever Mega Jackpot - Ksh 230 million

Kenyans took to social media to react to the news, many still shocked at how he managed to correctly predict 17 games

Paul Ogada is the latest man to join Kenya’s millionaires' club after bagging a whopping Sh230 million in the SportPesa Mega Jackpot.

Ogada won these millions by correctly predicting the outcome of 16 football matches. He was later established as the winner after a draw was conducted in Nairobi since the 17th game was postponed.

This is the highest amount ever won by a single person in the jackpot competition, beating Samuel Abisai’s record of Sh221 million.

He was picked up by a grey Limousine accompanied by a SportPesa motorcade to the excitement of residents who couldn’t hide their joy for the Kibera man.

Kenyans took to social media to react to the news and in particular, the new generation of ‘Slay queens’ gave ‘advice’ to Ogada, telling him the best ways to spend his cash.

Here is a sample of the reactions on social media from supposed ‘Slay queens’.
