Has Obama made Sauti Sol famous?

28 July 2015, 17:35 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi -A lot has been said about Obama’s short visit to Kenya, most of which show great promise for the Kenyan economy. Outside of the serious conversations that were had around this visit, a rare moment in the hands of Kenyan pop group Sauti Sol has attracted international attention.

During a performance by the group for the presidents in attendance, Obama decided to join in on the Lipala dance, executing the move to perfection. This short footage has received attention from media from all over the world including BBC News, CBN news and ABC news among many others.

Sauti Sol took a moment to recognize the fact that this moment might have sky rocketed them to international stardom with a post with all the headlines concerning this dance.

They wrote “Music and culture are true connectors. No matter the policies, history or disagreements, when you hear#SuraYako just drop the #lipaladance and have a blast! Music is love !!! #LipalaDancetotheWorld#LipalaLikeObama.”

Check out the Lipala in question here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RiDClb1FK4
