In the video, the FIFA employee is gifted a box of shoes, a bag, a cup and a portrait by Qatar officials due to his antics. 

He was also feted by the tournament's organisers with the official Qatar national jersey. 

“For the first time in my life, I received a gift,” his post read. 

While receiving the gifts, Metro guy detailed his inspiration to entertain the World Cup fans was driven by the dull nature exuded by the passers-by while trickling into the stadium. 

“People were just passing by and I thought of a way to engage them and that’s why I began doing the chants,” he noted.  

Other videos also emerged where fans interacted with him on numerous occasions.
