International sports brand Nike awarded Eliud Kipchoge with a Gold album following his recent success.
In a twist of events, local radio station NRG radio found itself on the wrong side of the athlete for using his name without his consent.
The radio station run a promotion that was to issue the world marathoner a brand new Benz If they reach 1 million followers.
Through his lawyer, Kipchoge warned to take drastic action if they do not pull down all promotions under his name.
Senator Kipchumba Murkomen felt he was misadvised and that a simple phone call could have done it.
