George Obama is the brother of Barack George Obama. George Obama is the youngest brother of Barack Obama, former president of the United States of America, and he lives in the slums of Nairobi.
This program was recorded when Barack Obama was the president of America. Being the brother of Barack Obama is a heavy burden for George Obama. "Being his brother is a blessing, but also a curse," says George Obama.
Since the presidency of Barack Obama, everyone wants something from George Obama. Because, if anyone can draw attention to the slums of Nairobi, it is George Obama, only because his brother is...Barack Obama.

Brothers and sisters, you do not choose them, but you are connected to each other for life. Sometimes they are confidants, sometimes rivals. But how is that if you are the brother or sister of a megastar, or of an icon?
