Being Barack Obama's brother: George Obama in the slums | VPRO Documentary | 2013 4.5

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?

Talking about his brother when the journalist said Barack is taking care of the world and not you he replied "He is taking care of the world I am part of the world" He is just amazing !

All these people claiming to be Obama's half siblings should prove it with a DNA test before demanding money and American resources!

Why would he feel connected to someone he met twice? Brotherhood is more than blood.

You can tell George doesn’t want any money he just wants the family that he never had.

To be fair, this was another marriage and Obama never knew this guy.

I would hate this life. Never knowing if someone is real or using you for connections you probably don’t even have.

How was your brother the president of a leading country and you’re still living in a shack something does not add up

Author — What is Life


You can see that he loved his life whenever he life’s in the “slumps” or not and that’s all that matters. MONEY DOESNT ALWAYS MAKE HAPPY

I have half brothers I ain’t never met either, older ones they never cared for me neither do I. Life goes on 😎

Author — Mansa Musa


They’re just half brother and didn’t grow up together, I think they didn’t create bond together enough.



A bit misleading title, a half brother that he only met twice.
Endearing character.

Author — Patel Pelat


How old was he in the slums ?? He didn't help him out ?? When he was SEN? WTF??

Author — wakeup


Even if he didn’t ask for help, Barack should still offer. George has too much pride to ask but he has pain as well.

Not everyone wants to go to White Amerika n not everyone wants handouts😏😏😏
