Renown United Arab Emirates (UAE) social media influencer and blogger Khalid Al Ameri and family yesterday evening jetted into Uganda to honour their promise of attending the wedding ceremony of their former Ugandan housemaid.
According to the YouTuber who is known for his daily videos about life with his Arab wife Salama Mohamed, their helper identified as Sarah who is from Uganda worked for them for six years.
Khalid and wife Salama Mohamed have built a huge international social media following over the years through creating funny and lighthearted videos of their daily family life and adventures as well as sharing stories of inspiration and triumph.
The couple in December last year shared a video on their socials in which they were seeing off Sarah. The biggest highlight was the fond affection and acts of kindness the family exchanged with her.
In the video, the couple pledged to pay for all the expenses of Sarah’s wedding and to also be there as witnesses on her big day. This was to thank her for her dedicated service to their family.
The video went viral on social media with over a million views on YouTube and Instagram and yesterday, the family landed on Ugandan soil to honor their promise.
Khalid during the interview at Entebbe Airport described Sarah as good ambassador for Uganda and her hospitality.
“It’s an honour to be here in the pearl of Africa. Sarah gave my family a very beautiful introduction to Uganda, she’s an incredible ambassador, she represents you with the utmost respect, dignity, work ethic and kindness. She never was a worker to our family but a sister,” Khalid said.
