Kenyan who faked holiday pics goes to China for real


A Kenyan woman who became famous for photoshopping herself into other people’s holiday pictures has flown out to China for real.

Entrepreneur Sam Gichuru, who tweeted this picture of Sevelyn Gat at the airport, in what we believe is a real photo, raised enough money from his friends to pay for the trip to China.

BBC Newsbeat reported in March that Ms Gat became famous because the images were so bad that people liked her pictures on Facebook thousands of times.


The phrase “fake it till you make it” just got very real for Kenyan woman, Seve Gat who has won a chance to visit China after photoshoping herself there.


Photos of Gat’s fake vacation to China were posted on Facebook and quickly went viral owing to the photo’s shoddiness and sheer hillarity.


But it would appear Gat is the one doing all the laughing now as the photos caught the attention of businessman, Sam Gichuruwho came across them online and has offered to sponsor Gat on a trip to China.

The Kenyan woman who has now applied for a passport will embark on an all-expense paid trip to China courtesy Gichuru.


Who says dreams don’t come true?

Meanwhile, after the photos hit cyberspace, internet users took the liberty of sending her on even more vacations.
