Charles Odongo, the man whose ugali eating video went viral a week ago has landed a lucrative deal with top betting site ‘Odi Bets’ as their brand ambassador.
Mr Odongo, who is popularly known as Ugali man now featured in Odi Bets’ latest marketing video doing what he does best, eating his ugali and meat.
Just as in the first viral video, Charles, a fitness enthusiast, displayed passion while eating his meal, a natural-born talent.
Taking to his Instagram page, a jovial Odongo stated,” My first advertisement video with Odibets…. Power iko.”
The video has been praised on Twitter and has since gone viral.
I am baffled how maize flour brands didn't reach out to #Ugaliman & work with him immediately after his video went viral. @odibets saw the golden opportunity & grabbed it without hesitation. Someone advise Ugali man to raise his rate card now because they're about to look for him
