Ellen Lee DeGeneres, an American comedian, television host, actress, writer, and producer is trending on Twitter in Kenya at the moment after she surprised a Kenyan woman, Achieng Agutu, on her programme.

She spotted Ms. Agutu among the audience showing some great dance moves in the pre-show warm up.

Ellen then surprised her guest by bringing her parents and brother, who she hadn’t seen for two years, on to the set.

Ms. Agutu moved to the US five years ago.

She spoke about how hard she worked and studied in the US, had a full-time job, babysit for two families, wash people’s houses, clean cars, and teach English and also an Uber driver.

She also said she improved her English by watching the musicians perform on the Ellen Show after she will go to a local cybercafe, in her hometown in western Kenya, to download the lyrics.

Ms. Agutu has received some positive comments on Twitter in Kenya.
