Magufuli sings Sauti Sol’s extravaganza song during speech (Video)
Magufuli is a big fan of the Boys Band
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, turning to the crowd for help in unmasking the band behind the song.
Magufuli used the song to pass a message to his critics that they can’t stop him or his government from doing anything that benefits the common Mwananchi.
“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 in the Video.
The video clip sparked excitement on social media with a section of Kenyans concluding Magufuli was a big fan of Sauti Sol.
In reaction to the video, the boys band wrote,“Ndio maana tunasema Rais Mhe. Dkt John Magufuli atabaki kileleni."
