The former rugby star and a self-taught chef has been crowned TikTok's best content creator in Sub-Saharan Africa 2022.

In his acceptance speech, Ombachi was also a speaker at the inaugural gala event held in Nairobi which saw 90 nominated creators converge at the five-star Movenpick Hotel and residence dedicated his award to his wife Svetlana Polikarpova and their two children saying;

"Coming from sports I have won a couple of medals but there's is a different feeling that this one has. I dedicate this award to you my love and our beautiful babies and thanks for hustling to dress me."

The event dubbed #topcreators2022 brought together 90 nominees who were eying eight awards after public voting took place between December 16, 2022, to December 23, 2022.

Ombachi's win was certainly well-deserved. His TikTop page is among the most followed with over 1.9 million followers and 22.3 million likes.
