Alas, Africa Now Has Its Own #SaltBae
This Kenyan internet comedian takes the #SaltBae trend and gives it an African twist.
Over the past four days or so, the internet has gone wild over Turkish chef and restaurant owner, Nusret Gökçe, as he takes thirst trapping to a whole other level with meat, salt and his killer knife skills.
As you take a look below, you'll ask yourself a couple of times, "What the hell did I just watch?"

But because the Internet, the chef's videos went viral under #SaltBae, and different online communities began to make their own hilarious memes out of his numerous videos—but this one by self-proclaimed "future movie star" from Kenya, Seth Gor, takes the cake.
Not only does he show off how he works an avocado, he makes it known that he's Africa's own #SaltBae.
