“I do not like wearing trousers because they make it hard for me to watch over our cattle. I can easily face off with wild animals and I have once gone head to head with a 20-year-old man. I am a Maasai,” he declared.

When asked just how he managed to master two foreign languages, the young boy said he learnt by listening.

“No one taught me, I just used to listen to people talk then I learnt how to speak fluent Maasai and Swahili,” he added.

His adoptive dad Daudi who works as a guard could not hide his pride and continuously praised Oscar for fitting in so well despite coming from a different country and culture.

“I am so proud of my son. Everyone in our community considers him as one of us and my peers refer to him as the Maasai boy,” Daudi gushed.
