Tanzanian singer Nandy can not keep calm after receiving a call from President Samia Suluhu during a live performance in Dodoma. 

During her electrifying performance, the President called her, and she placed the phone on speaker for all the fans to hear her. 

"I am on official duty in Dar es Salam, if not I would be with you today. May you have a nice show, let all Tanzanians enjoy I am thankful that today as I mark my day 100 in office, you are in Dodoma to entertain the youth, tell them i love them so much," President Suluhu told the crowd. 

The African Princess could not hide her joy after receiving the call from the head of state. 

"Simu yako moja ya leo LiVE hapa Nandy Festival Dodoma Mama na Rais wetu Samia Suluhu Hassan leo umeiheshimisha sanaa, umetuheshimisha wasanii na unetuheshimisha vijana tunaoishi tukijituma na kila siku kuongeza ufanisi.

Mama napiga goti kukushukuru, mimi na wenzangu na tasnia hii tumehemewa. Asante Sana Mama. (Your phone call on Nandy Festival Dodoma is a sign of respect for artists, you have given respect to youths who are working their ways up. I kneel down to thank you Mum, me and my fellow artists are elated. Thank you so much mum)," Nandy said. 

The president has shown immense support for local artists in Tanzania by giving them supports and encouraging them to grow their talents. 

Barely two weeks ago, she honoured Rayvanny by giving him a gift.
