Online sensation ‘Ugali Man’ has opened a state-of-the-art gym in Rongai area, Nairobi. The gym instructor whose videos went viral a few months back received a brand new seven-seater van and a cash boost to support his fitness career.
Speaking during the gym opening event, Ugali man, whose real names are Charles Odongo, thanked Odibets for the support it had given him and vowed to go all out in helping the youth nurture their talents in the fitness industry.
“I thank Odibets for coming through for me and promise that I will support my fellow youth from Rongai just the same way Odibets has supported me,” said an elated Ugali man.
Odibets partnership is part of Odi Mtaani, a grassroots talent development initiative that was started by the betting firm.
Also present during the gym opening ceremony was Odibets country marketing manager Aggrey Sayi, who said the betting firm will always strive to nurture untapped talent in the society.
“We at Odibets believe that more funding is needed towards development of talent, thus we will continue to support unique talents such as Charles Odongo, who is committed to his fitness career in a passionate way,” said Mr Sayi.
Early this week, sprint record holder Ferdinand Omanyala was gifted a brand-new Toyota Harrier car by Odibets as a reward for breaking the African 100 metres record last weekend at the Kip Keino Classic Tour.
