    "After his viral "Taaaanite" video, Master Joseph Ndegwa Ngari gets to meet his role model Jeff Koinange on JKLive," read the post by the broadcaster.

    In the viral video, Ndegwa imitates Jeff's trademark voice and even stressed particular words like tonight, pronounced as 'taanight' by the renowned presenter.

    "Welcome to Citizen TV, my name is Jeff Koinange. Remember to tweet @Koinangejeff and the hashtag is always JKLive and JKLive begins taanight," Ndegwa mimicked.

    He took it a notch higher changing poses and postures like Jeff does while introducing his show.

    Social media users who saw the post could not hide their excitement after Jeff unveiled his young guest in a poster on Twitter.

    This comes about two weeks after another young boy, Levis Saoli imitated Citizen TV presenters. Saoli was later granted access to the stations studios where he interacted with its anchors and even got to read the news.

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Citizen TV's editorial director, Joe Ageyo, disclosed that Saoli was to start receiving mentorship from seasoned media personalities at Citizen TV and that the broadcaster was interested in seeing the breadth of his abilities.
