Kenya: Please Follow Me On Twitter - Chris Kirubi to Erykah Badu

Entrepreneur, industrialist and businessman, Chris Kirubi could not help but serenade visiting American singer Erykah Badu with praises during her visit in Kenya. The Capital FM CEO started by requesting the star to befriend him on social media.

"I want you to be my friend and even follow me on twitter and also befriend me on Facebook,"he said.

Chris who met Erykah at the press conference on Monday could not stop praising the award winning singer and even teasingly requested her to get a Kenyan passport and buy a house in Kenya.

"Kenya is the most beautiful country. This is where you are originally from not Ghana. If you need a man to take care of you there will be many volunteers. I will be among the volunteers so if you want to buy a small place to live in like a cottage please feel at home,"he said.

Erykah who was still tired from her journey had actually postponed the press-conference from 11am to 3pm. She however candidly answered questions from the press with much ease and even spoke about her controversial video from the song Window seat where she stripped naked.

"Music is a medium that allows artistes to express themselves and I was just expressing myself," she said. Erykah said that the video and song was to address 'groupthink' and how being different will see called names.
