He has become an internet sensation in Kenya, after he was spotted walking barefoot in Tom Mboya street Nairobi, with likening him to the Biblical Jesus, thanks to their striking resemblance.
Daniel Cristos, an Australian, however insists that he is nowhere near the Messiah saying he only shares the name with God’s son who walked the earth a couple thousand years back.
However, his striking resemblance to Jesus Christ, at least as depicted in Hollywood movies that we have been exposed to since our childhood, continues to baffle many.
When Daniel was fist spotted in Nairobi, panic engulfed the city as Kenyans thought the IT technician was Jesus whose had told his followers that he’d be back, soon, and that his second coming will be like that of a thief -unannounced.
As it is expected of Kenyans, they lined up the streets of Nairobi just to take selfies with Daniel who perhaps didn’t want to risk condemnation and repeat Jesus history, he obliged albeit uncomfortably.
Some jokers even floated the idea around that he should be crucified, comments which did not go down well with Daniel who insisted he was just a mere adventure seeker whose only goal was to explore various parts of the world and not cause trouble.
Tuko reports that Dan just crossed over from Ethiopia, and he did not expect he’d become an instant celebrity in Kenya.
He shocked many last weekend after he was seen at a popular Nairobi joint smoking shisha. He’s lucky uncle Ezekiel Mutua hasn’t called for his arrest.
Daniel is accompanied by his wife and in the video below, both can be seen sampling wild fruits at Kereita area in Kijabe.
They were hosted by a Kenyan couple.
