Tanzania President John Magufuli set social media ablaze after singing Sauti Sol’s hit song, “Extravaganza”.
He quoted the lyrics while launching two new radar systems in Dar es Sallam and Kilimanjaro for controlling air traffic.
“Tanzania’s airspace is now 100 percent secure following the acquisition of four radars that will enhance safety and security of the country’s airspace,” he said.
“Initially the country had one radar which had a surveillance capacity of 25 percent leaving 75 percent of the country’s airspace unsecured.”
Not so perfect with the real name of the music group, Magufuli praised them saying that according to the lyrics, they are strong and no one can beat them even in music.
Sauti Sol have been shinning in and out of the country for their music and sense of fashion. Back in the year 2016, they were featured at Brighton Museum and art gallery – a municipally-owned public museum and art gallery in the city of Brighton and Hove in the South East of England – in an exhibition titled Fashion Cities Africa.
In May, they were invited to perform at the 2019 ESSENCE Festival at New Orleans, Louisiana. They performed alongside Missy Elliott, Mary J. Blige, NAS, H.E.R., Anthony Hamilton, Big Freedia, Davido, Doug E. Fresh, Frankie Beverly, Jermaine Dupri among others.
Sharing their joy on social media, Sauti Sol made the post of Magufuli singing to their song, inviting reactions from their fans.
