It was a beautiful Sunday morning in Nairobi! but this one came with not the usual going to church plans then later hang out with friends kind of day.
WE all gathered at the Railways club where this year’s Neymar five Aside competition was set to take place, Redbull had gathered a total of about a hundred and eighteen teams which had signed up from Nairobi. My team signed up around three teams to participate I mean it was FREE to sign up and participate! Two teams got eliminated sadly ahahah funny thing was we did not have enough players who came out to play, while we were playing in one pitch we heard our team B being called on another pitch LMAO. Our plan was to play and finish all the games on one pool then go and play again on the second pool bytheway we were only four players with a total of eighteen matched to play in a single day. I know right, but Mungu ni Mungu aki, One team proceeded until the finals GAMERZ FC which had

That day I drove to the venue but Fundi kumbe alieka bags kwa boot LMAO and I forgot to check it when I was leaving! I reached TUK and something told me to park and check OMG the bags we all there AHAHHAHA so I had to turn and go back to the venue again at around 10.30pm hapo.
