An 11-year-old Swedish boy who has adopted aspects of the culture of Maasai people in Tanzania has attracted both joy and criticism from the community.
Oscar Magwaya moved to Tanzania with his mother, Suzan, when he was four years old. She married her Maasai security guard.
Ms Magwhaya was working for a charity helping street children when she met Daudi Maghwaya, her Maasai security guard.
They got married and had a daughter together, Oscar's younger half-sister.
Oscar is fluent in Maasai, as well as Swahili and his mother-tongue Swedish.
He now only wears Maasai clothes - the striking fabric brought together with a belt around the waist.
"Here it is very hot so the clothes give you enough air," Oscar told me.
While Oscar has a lot of friends, he says that some people in the Maasai community criticise him.
"They tell me I should go back to Europe, that I don’t fit in because this is not my tradition, but no I can’t go back. This is what I love and I am glad some people love me."
He wants to be a farmer when he grows up and own lots of cattle in a Tanzanian village.
Currently he lives with his family in Kigambon, a district in the commercial capital Dar es Salaam.
While Maasai people come from northern Tanzania and southern Kenya, it is very common for them to move to Dar es Salaam, often to work as security guards.
"I find Maasai people very brave, and I’m very brave too. I once killed a snake myself when I was young," Oscar said.
