Tanzanian President John Pombe Magufuli amused many of Sauti Sol’s fans on Monday after he was captured on Camera singing Sauti Sol ft Sol Generation’s song Extravaganza.
Magufuli was giving a speech during the grand opening of the largest Pipe manufacturing plant in Dar es Salaam.
In the video, the Head of State is seen singing along to the lyrics of the song as he tries to remember who composed it.
The crowd jumped in to remind the president that the song was composed by Sauti Sol.
Magufuli used the song to discredit his critics whoclaim he hasn’t done much.
“Ule Wimbo sijui wa mwimbaji gani kule, sijui Sauti Solo sijui sauti nani, anasema wao wakifunika wengine wanafunua, Tukifunika tunafungua (singing) hawazuiliwi kufanya kitu. Wakienda kwenye Muziki vyombo vikifungiwa, wao wako ndani, ukiwazuia tayari wao wako humo. Sijui ndo Sauti ya Solo ama nani, nyinyi mtajua, Wanasema wakifunika wao wanafunua wakienda Kusini wao wako kaskazini, wakiwafungia kuingia ndani wanawakuta wako ndani, sasa sisi ni hivyo hivyo,” said Magufuli
Sauti Sol and their fans took to social media to laud the president for the love.
“Ndio maana tunasema Rais Mhe. Dkt John Magufuli atabaki kileleni.” Wrote Sauti Sol
Ben Soul wrote “Halafu yule msanii aliyeimba “wakasunda mizinga hawakujua si tuko mavela” anaitwa Ben Solo”
