Indeed, President Cyril Ramaphosa is a huge fan of Tyla and has been following her success all over the world. Netizens could not stop laughing after spotting a viral video of the president attempting the Water Dance Challenge in Belhar before giving the State of the Nation Address (SONA).
According to reports, he said he cannot wait to meet the singer in person and also attempt the challenge again. He was seen in a video congratulating the “Water” star and praising her for flying the country’s flag high.
“We are so proud of you, and I’m so happy for you. You are such a talented artist. It’s amazing for the world to also recognise you. I’m not allowed to say this, but you dance so beautifully, you are so beautiful. Typical South African beauty.”
“That’s our girl. It’s not easy to win a Grammy Award, and you got one. First shot. And that’s one of many to come. Conquer the world on our behalf. I look forward to meeting you face to face one day and to dance with you.”
