Everyone is getting the Waah! fever. So far we have seen dancers from Dar to Hong Kong take on the entertaining dance challenge by Diamond Platnumz and Koffi Olomide. And now, presidents are also doing it!

Not one to be left behind when it comes to internet trends, Kenya's president Uhuru Kenyatta joined in the Waah fun a couple of days ago. Uhuru was at a youth campaign event when he was invited to the stage to show his Waah moves.

The president is never shy when it comes to participating in trendy dances. He has done the viral 'Dab' dance and also Sauti Sol's 'Sura Yako' challenge with Barack Obama.

Uhuru gladly joined the event host on stage to shake a leg. But what ensued was absolute hilarity. Waah may have been the song playing, but Waah was not what Uhuru was dancing to. The struggle was real!

His moves were a strange mix between dabbing, zangalewa, and a white guy at a rap concert. But as always he got an 'A' for effort from the crowd.

Diamond definitely noticed the Kenyan president's effort too and gave him a big up on his Instagram page.

""Thank you so Much Mr President UHURU KENYATA and the whole Kenya for the Love...Seeing our leaders supporting our Work, means alot to us.... and not only as Musicians but the African youth."

Chibu always has love for Kenya

Diamond's love for Kenya is well documented. His success will always be tied at the hip with this country which gave him his first true taste of international stardom. Kenyan fans have helped Diamond reach big career milestones in the past, including making Waah the biggest African song in YouTube history.

Just last week, Diamond brushed off criticism from Kenyan rapper Octopizzo to give a special message to his Kenyan fans. Octopizzo cursed Kenyans online for supporting the Bongo star too much instead of our own singers like Otile Brown. He said:

"MFs out here gassing Diamond but will not support Otile Brown. The Mediocrity on this platforms. Smh" 

Diamond responded to his Kenyan fans by saying, "Thank you for the big Support and Love KENYA!".
