If you were to shout ‘wamlambez’ anywhere in Kenya, chances are that someone would immediately shout back ‘wamnyonyez’.
This unofficial Kenyan greeting became mainstream after the release of the song Wamlambez by Sailors in April.
Kenyans on Twitter were quick to jump on the #WamlambezChallenge which had the phrase trending for months. It became an instant bonding experience between friends and strangers alike.

It wasn’t just in Kenya, though! Fans spread the phrase across borders and even got Hollywood celebrities like Christina Milian and Jamie Foxx to say it.
