A man from Eldoret identified as Brian Mayaka has excited netizens with his amazing ability to mimic over 70 animals, 40 birds and 5 insects.
The 22-year-old Brian does not struggle making the sounds because he has grasped the techniques.
The Eldoret-based vocal artist told a media outlet that he found out his voicing ability when he was still a ten-year-old boy.
He said that his parents were always confused when they heard a certain animal or bird sound in the house and they could not see it.
After his parents knew he was the one behind the sounds they were astonished and shocked of how he sounded exactly like the animals.
“I started mimicking in 2010 and I could only do eight sounds by then, I have been improving over time and I now can do 130 sounds,” Said Mayaka.
Mayaka disclosed that he loves watching animal shows and walking in animal parks where he interacts with them.
He also revealed that he can speak words using the animal sounds.
I can mimic sounds of 78 birds, 46 animals and 5 insects. I can also communicate using those sounds,” said Mayaka.
Mayaka has been entertaining his village members and schoolmates with his amazing sounds.
His father, Job Mayaka said that they were first shocked when they learned their boy has that gift but later on understood it is normal to have that ability.
“We were really shocked and we kept asking ourselves if he was a child or an animal but we later came to realise it is a normal thing that can happen to a person,” said the father.
