It's shaping up to be an exciting year for Egyptians. First, world-famous Argentinian footballer Lionel Messi visited Egypt last month and now American actor and musician Will Smith arrived in the country over the weekend.

Egypt’s veteran archaeologist and former Minister of Antiquities Dr. Zahi Hawwas called Messi's visit "the most important visit in the history of the pyramids!" But now, Hawwas is showing Smith around, and we're wondering how the American actor's visit ranks.  

Is it the second most important? Or is this now the most important? Hmm.

Regardless, Egyptians seem equally excited about the Fresh Prince's visit. And in typical Arab fashion, they are showing a lot of warm and welcoming hospitality.

The hashtag #Egypt_welcomes_Will_Smith has been trending and Egyptians have been proudly sharing photos of Smith touring Egypt's most iconic touristic sites.

The warm welcome comes from the heart

Welcome to the land of the Pharaohs

Many have been big fans since Smith's early days in the spotlight

And of course, the Egyptian photoshoppers came out in force

And the memes ...

So much love
