‘Metro Man’, the accidental sensation of the World Cup social networks

A young man from Kenya has become a fan favorite with his creative method of directing people to the subway station.

Doha, Qatar – Abubakr Abbass, a 23-year-old from Kenya, has become a firm fan favorite, and accidental social media sensation, during the soccer World Cup in Qatar.

Sitting in a tennis umpire’s chair and carrying a large foam finger, he guides the hundreds of fans visiting the historic market, called Souq Waqif, to the nearby metro station with the help of his trusty megaphone.

His helpful advice, “Subway? In this way. Meter? This way”, has now become a famous catchphrase.

“We love him; we love the subway boy,” said one fan, pointing to Abbass.

“I saw it on TikTok. I thought it was very funny. He makes me laugh; it’s such a simple task,” added a young fan dressed in a Chelsea football shirt.

People who visit the popular Souq Waqif regularly interact with Abbass, interacting and creating pantomime scenes.

Not much is known about Abbass, but the mysterious social media star has earned praise for bringing enthusiasm to an otherwise mundane task.

“He is really enjoying his job,” said an impressed fan.

Abbass is now inspiring other workers to join in on the fun, with many now donning his signature foam finger and creatively providing instructions to fans.
