Nairobi Morans star Tom ‘Bush’ Wamukota reveals reason behind his unique celebration style against Kampala City’s Red Stars.

The Most Valuable Player in the 2017 Africa City Challenge basketball tournament Tom ‘Bush’ Wamukota has explained his celebration style to P Live.

The Cyprus-based centre drove Kenya’s Nairobi Morans to a 71-49 victory over Kampala City’s Red Stars for the inaugural title with a conspicuous ‘phone in hand’ celebration style during the final match played on Friday at the Nyayo Stadium’s Basketball court.

Speaking to P Live after the triumph, the Maseno High School Alumnus explained that his style was a reflection of his late arrival at the team ahead of the competition which kicked off on Sunday June 11.  

“It was for my teammates. I just came from oversees and it was barely two days to the tournament. So I was like yo this is why you gave me a call; I’m in shape; that’s why you gave me a call.

“It is a great feeling to win a championship and to be able to do it for my team. It’s absolutely a great feeling.”

The Kenyan team bagged home $6,000 (Sh621,900) as prize money.
