Naughty Akombe reacts to Naomi Osaka’s “Hana Kuma” with unexpected move

With yesterday’s “Hana Kuma” crazy by tennis superstar Naomi Osaka trending all day and causing a sensation across the internet and the country, the last person you would expect to react to such, alongside Martha Koome and Bi Mswafari, would be former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission member Roselyn Akombe. However, the no-nonsense ex-commissioner made a baffling move.

News erupted that Japanese tennis star Osaka had launched a media company called Hana Kuma, and Kenyans jumped on it because of the peculiarity of the name. While in Japanese it apparently means Flower Bear, in Kiswahili it is a phrase meaning someone has no vagina. In the heat of the whole Hana Kuma excitement, with Kenyans using the opportunity to release long-time pent up naughty vulgar thrills, Akombe immediately retweeted a post whose Japanese connection wasn’t lost on many.

To complete the too-close-for-coincidence tweet, the name too was as close as it gets to Osaka.

However, Akombe took the high road. The post which she retweeted was a tweet by one Asako Okai talking about the role that business and business enterprises can play in war torn areas ravaged by conflict. It read,

Tennis star Naomi Osaka became the latest athlete to get involved in media production, launching the ‘Hana Kuma’ venture with LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill media firm.

Hana Kuna will focus on stories that “are culturally specific but universal to all audiences”, with SpringHill providing production and development expertise, along with other resources.
“There has been an explosion of creators of colour finally being equipped with resources and a huge platform,” said Osaka. “In the streaming age, content has a more global perspective. You can see this in the popularity of television from Asia, Europe, and Latin America that the unique can also be universal.
“My story is a testament to that as well. I’m so excited for what we are building at Hana Kuma. We will bring stories to life with this goal in mind: to make unique perspectives feel universal and inspire people along the way.”
