We always boast of having the coolest president around. You know, one who dabs, dances alongside performing artistes and sings ‘Thitima’. But wait, Tanzania’s President John Magufuli might outdo our own when it comes to getting in touch with artistes. Magufuli was watching Clouds TV where Diamond was being hosted when he made the call.

Asante sana nimekusikia, lakini nakupongeza sana kwa kuzidi kuitangaza Tanzania katika masuala ya muziki na nawapongeza wanamuziki wote hata wale wanaogiza nawapenda sana wale, Shilawadu nk, asanteni jamani.” (Thank you, I’ve heard you. But I congratulate you for promoting tanzania musically and I also congratulate other musicians, even those ones who act, Shilawadu etc, I love you all. Thanks).

Diamond took that once-in-a-lifetime chance to request the president to chip in and do something for the artistes.

“Mimi namuomba Rais Magufuli kama anavyosaidia mengine kwa wepesi, kwenye sanaa uweke mkono wako Baba tunakutegemea” Here is a video uploaded on YouTube, courtesy of Clouds TV.
