The Mzungu little boy who came from Sweden has been staying with the Masaai community for more than 7 years and he has embraced their lifestyle and culture.

During an interview with BBC on Wednesday, Oscar said it straight that he already chose to live with the Maasai community the rest of his life and he is not interested returning back to his mother land.

He has become part of them after learning their lifestyle and culture, beginning from their language, dressing and also likes their food.

I like milk, meat also the dancing skills  (napenda nyama, maziwa na vile wanavyocheza Wamasaai),” he said.

In another interview with Global TV, Oscar narrated that he traveled to Tanzania alongside his young sister and mother.

This happened after Oscar’s mum fell in love with a Maasai man, who was employed as a security guard in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi.

The boy also wants to engage in farming and also livestock keeping just like the real Maasai.

However, he stated that many Maasai Tanzanians like him and others hate him because he chose to live in the Maasai community rather than going back to Sweden where there is good standard of living.
