Yesterday, an excited Naomi Osaka announced a new media partnership to create content in Hollywood. She hooked up with another company owned and run by Lebron James. But, when the name of Naomi's new company was announced, it left Kenyans and Kiswahili speakers in general in major stitches.

"I’ve built my career taking a different approach than those around me and because my journey has been so different it’s opened my eyes to all the incredible stories out there that aren’t getting told.

That’s why I’m launching Hana Kuma, a media platform focused on stories that are culturally specific but universal. Stories that are bold and playful like me.
I’m incredibly proud to be building a business that is a true reflection of me and I couldn’t think of a better partner than @kingjames to do this. I’m so excited to do this with him," Naomi Osaka gushed on her Instagram announcement.
