Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka has launched her own media company known as Hana Kuma in partnership with LeBron James.
Hana Kuma, which translates to “flower bear,” will focus on stories that are “culturally specific but universal to all audiences; playful and bold in its approach to tackle important issues.”
“What excites me is being able to inspire people and tell new stories, particularly ones that I would have wanted to see when I was a kid. I always wanted to kind of see someone like me,” Osaka said.
James and Maverick Carter’s The SpringHill Company will serve as financing, operations and producing partner for Hana Kuma, the paper said.
However Kenyans on Twitter have reacted differently, over the ‘Hana Kuma’ name
