The content creator shot to fame for lip synching Drury is in Qatar for the FIFA 2022 World Cup, with the renowned commentator also in the Asian nation for the global competition.

In a bid to catch the attention of the commentator, Arap Uria took a photo in the streets of Qatar holding a placard with a message that he hoped would reach Drury.

Donning his signature look that catapulted him to fame, the content creator held a placard with that read:

"Hello, Peter Drury, it's Arap Uria. I am in Qatar and I would like to meet you."

The content creator shared the photo on Twitter, tagging Drury’s co-commentator Jim Beglin.

Jim responded, wishing Arap Uria well and letting the content creator know that the message was home with the poetic commentator.

"I have passed on your tweet to Peter. I hope it all works out for you. Good luck," Jim replied.

"Peter will contact you tomorrow, Arap," added Drury’s co-commentator.

True to his word, Arap Uria finally met Drury today and could not hold back the excitement.

The content creator shared their photos with a caption that read:

“Gooooal!!!😂😂 Finally with Peter Drury . Many thanks @jimbeglin”.

In some of the photos shared, the duo was seen donning Arapa Uria’s tools of trade that have become part of his signature look.

Some netizens were however not impressed with the strategy that yielded the meeting with Drury with some faulting the Kenyan content creator and pointing out that there are other ways to secure a meeting.

“Please stop this. You are only shaming yourself - your dignity. There are many other ways to find Peter Drury.” Quipped Farah Ali.

Others noted that Arap Uria was simply plying his trade of creating content and saw nothing wrong with his plea to Drury.

“You are behind, Peter recognized him long time ago. Peter actually told him that he hopes they will meet one day. Relax isikuwashe” Wrote @Jessca Kosgey.

“To the haters, Drury is a world icon. Arap Uria uses his voice to create content. Now he will meet the guy, possibly do a skit together. Drury's followers will now be Araps follower. The guy is going global. Keep begging Arap. If it is what it takes. 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾” Added @Mwaura 24.

The duo is among thousands who are in Qatar for the ongoing FIFA 2022 World Cup.
