Obama's face was on everything and everywhere in Nairobi, Kenya in 2009...
Lucas Smith, Kenya, 2009
: "As an American I was bombarded with questions inEnglish (English is the official language of Kenya) on my feelings and opinions of a Kenyangoverning the United States of America. The first several times I responded in saying that notenough time had elapsed since Barack Obama's appointment as President of the USA, and thatI'd have to hold my official opinion until at least January 2010, a year in office might besufficient for me to judge his ability to govern the USA. Naturally I thought that by "Kenyan"they were referring to Barack Obama's blood, being that his father Barack Cbama sr was a nativeof Kenya. After a day and a half of my being in Nairobi I learned that they were literallyreferring to president Barack Obama jr as being born in Kenya, a native of Kenya. Now I startedasking questions, did his father's Kenyan blood somehow entitle Barack jr to the equivalent of anative Kenyan? no, not all, I was to find out. They were referring to Barack Obama jr's physical birth on Kenyan soil."2. (b).
Critics and Obamanuts
: President Obama's face and his name wasn¶t really plastered around that much in Nairobi or anywhere in Kenya. A person would not see Obama'sface and name on everything and in Nairobi, e.g., not on T-shirts, not on signs nor posters in thestreet, not on all the TV stations and news broadcasts.2. (c).

: "Most of the restaurants and bars around Nairobi have a TV set, and many show international news channels like CNN. Via the TV newsthe Kenyan people followed the unfolding battle in America for the Democratic nomination for president. Kenya celebrated the rise of Barack Obama, it's "lost" African son and the possibilitythat the first Lou president was going to elected -- in America! The reggae hit, Barack Obama" by Cocoa Tea boomed out from the matatus (city buses in Kenya are called "matatus"); bars setup wide screen TVs so customers could watch Barack Obama action. Like everyone else, I foundmyself gripped by the powerful rhetoric of this man. As my American brother went fromunderdog to odds-on-favorite, the interest in his Kenyan roots and heritage mushroomed. Hisface peered out of every Kenyan newspaper and magazine: T shirts sported his most popular slogans, like Change You Can Believe In. He seemed to be EVERYWHERE, and I suppose itwas hardly surprising when the world's press came looking for me (George Obama)."Conclusion: It appears that Lucas Smith wasn't the only one that noticed Barack Obama's faceand name on EVERYTHING and EVERYWHERE in Nairobi, Kenya. There was even a reggaesong called "Barack Obama" by Cocoa Tea which blarred from public city buses in Nairobi allday long. Did you know that?
English is spoken in Kenya (and is the official, though not national, language of Kenya) , but most Kenyans speak terribly poor quality English«
