‘Metro Man’, World Cup’s random social media event | Qatar 2022 World Cup News

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

Doha, Qatar – Abubakr Abbass, 23, from Kenya, has emerged as a fan-favorite – and coincidentally, on social media – during the soccer World Cup in Qatar.

Sitting in the tennis referee’s chair and wearing a large styrofoam finger, he guided hundreds of fans visiting the historic market – known as Souq Waqif – to a nearby metro station with help of your trusted speaker.

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

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

“I saw him on TikTok. I think it’s really funny. He makes me laugh; it’s a simple task,” added a young fan wearing a Chelsea football shirt.

People who visit the famous Souq Waqif regularly interact with the Abbass, engaging back and forth and creating scenes that resemble pantomime.

Not much is known about the Abbass, but the social media enigmatic star has been widely praised for bringing enthusiasm to an otherwise ordinary mission.

“He really enjoys his job,” said one impressed fan.

Abbass is now inspiring other workers to join the fun, with many of them now wearing his signature foam fingers and giving fans directions in creative ways.
