Viral Alert: This is why KDJ O37G is currently trending on Twitter

  • Now, back to why Philip is a man of interest. Yesterday, as if to chide his followers, Philip posted a diagram of a car illustration with the number plate 'KDJ 037G'.
  • In the caption, he wrote, "If your phone can't copypaste this vehicle just know it's fake".

The car number plate KDJ 037G is currently the number one Trending Topic on Kenyan Twitter and whilst it may sound ominous, it's actually a very innocent number plate whose currency has been pushed by popular Twitter user Alinur Mohammed.

But before Alinur jumped into the ring, there was a strangely-English sounding fellow named Philip Mcloude who began the whole mess.

According to his Twitter bio, Philip Mcloude is a Thika-based 'TV host, MC, Event planner, Environmentalist and Talent Manager'.

Now, back to why Philip is a man of interest. Yesterday, as if to chide his followers, Philip posted a diagram of a car illustration with the number plate 'KDJ 037G'.

In the caption, he wrote, "If your phone can't copypaste this vehicle just know it's fake".

Now, 24 hours later, over 1,000 people have left comments under the tweet, with the content of the comments being a copy and paste of the same diagram Philip had tweeted out earlier.

But there's a little problem... The copypaste version of Philip's car diagram seems a little different from the original version and that's where Philip is getting the kicks - by typing 'fake' under every comment.

Back to Alinur Mohammed.

The showy Twitter figure, who also is a city politician with ostensibly deep pockets, also decided to jump into the fray and tweet out his version of the car diagram as if to console himself of the originality of his (I suspect) iPhone.

He tweeted, "I had to do it to confirm this phone that I bought with my own money is original."

Again, the 'KDJ 037G' comments were resurrected with thousands of Twitter users attempting to replicate the same diagram in a futile attempt to confirm their phone's authenticity.

Now, the innocuous number plate is the number one trending topic on Twitter. I can't imagine the horror the actual owner of a real KDJ 037G is going through.

All in all, it's a silly copypasting game that is, thankfully, keeping Kenyans on Twitter busy.

Now, can we all get back to work?
