DStv interviews javelin World Champion Julius Yego who reveals more about Khaligraph's song and his preparations for the Olympics.
Yego yego yego yego. They calling me Julius Yego. They calling me Yego. Julius Yego by Khaligraph Jones is arguably the most listened to track of 2015, an anthem on everyone's lips from the moment it hit the airwaves. We have a feeling it is still winning in 2016 just like the man it honours, javelin thrower Julius Yego.

Being the current World Champion in a sport that Kenya has never been known to excel in, it is only fair that Yego enjoys the viral rap that is Julius Yego. But have you ever wondered how the hero himself (Yego) feels about this national anthem, so to speak?
Fun fact: Did you also know that he is a fan of Kenyan Southampton striker Victor Wanyama? He even calls him "a real Kenyan".
We met Yego at Kasarani Stadium during his early morning training and he was happy to share a lot more than just his love for Khaligraph's praise song. For instance, what are his most valuable lessons learned on the pitch and how is he preparing for the Olympics? Find out in the video below:
