American actor Jamie Foxx has now joined the Wamlambez bandwagon.

A short video clip has widely been shared by a local designer and owner of a fashion house, Mama Foli, shows Jamie Foxx’s Wamlambez moment.

“When I say Wamlambez, you say Wamnyonyez,” says Foli who was hanging out with the Hollywood star.

In other several clips also shared, the Django Unchained actor and Unpredictable hit maker can be heard giving shout outs to Kenya.


Mr Foxx is not the first US celebrity to be sucked into the Wamlambez euphoria.
