Kenya Deputy President William Ruto joined a long list of international celebrities to enjoy steaks made by the world's most famous butcher, Salt Bae.

Salt Bae who became a popular internet meme with his unique style of preparing his nyamchom and salting it like a boss, has cooked for celebs including DJ Khaled, P. Diddy, Lionel Messi, Naomi Campbell, Fergie, Chris Brown, Pharrell Williams, Wiz Khalifa, Mary J. Blige, Emily Ratajkowski, Snoop Dogg, Jamie Foxx, Usher and many more.

Now DP Ruto can say he has joined the list of stars to eat the world's most famous steak. The DP shared on Twitter his delight at visiting and meeting Salt Bae at his Dubai restaurant called Nusr-Et Steakhouse. "This evening I interacted with Hustler Salt Bae, a Turkish butcher, who has created a successful hustle out of salt, nyama and a knife," he posted.

The self-proclaimed voice of all Kenyan hustlers even had a hilarious challenge for Salt Bae's fellow nyama choma hustlers here in Kenya working in the famous Kenyatta, Burma and Dagoretti meat markets, "Mahustler wa Kenyatta , burma, dagoreti markets na wengine mko na compe na lessons hapo, mjipange. Kazi ni kazi, wìra ni wìra, mboka ni mboka."

The absurdly expensive menu at Nusr-et is not for everyone. A steak reportedly costs anywhere between $70 and $275 (Ksh 7,000- 27,500)! When one hustler replied to DP Ruto's post saying, "I'm also a hustler sir and I make very nice food in my house and I deliver at a cost to different areas," another commenter responded with some advise for him, "Trust me, you are not the target or the hustler nation. His targets are the less literate who cannot famoth  the idea that life is way better that what is he is offering."


We all know the Salt Bae meme that blew up all over the world making the chef a pop culture icon. Eating one of his steaks has become a bucket list item for most people visiting Dubai. Over two years since the legendary meme, Salt Bae's restaurant still brings in famous crowds.

It remains to be seen whether the DP will get into trouble for the complete lack of social distancing during his time at the restaurant. He can be seen in the pictures along with Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar, and they are both unmasked even though their host is wearing one.

It wouldn't be the only piece of controversy to come from Salt Bae's restaurant this week. Just last Thursday, Arsenal footballer Willian Borges was flagged for having breached Covid-19 lockdown restrictions after he travelled quietly to Dubai and was pictured with Salt Bae at his restaurant. The Brazilian player has gotten into hot water with UK authorities and his employer as well.

DP Ruto is known for his extreme love of nyama choma. He has been pictured several times enjoying the delicacy at various spots around town.
Does he love nyama so much that he decided to sneak out of the country for a taste of the famous steaks? According to reports, the DP jetted off on Wednesday night and is on a 4-day personal business trip to the UAE.

As he would say, "hustler pia lazima akule, ama namna gani my fren?"
