Watch: Obama smoothly performs traditional Lipala dance at Kenya state dinner

President Barack Obama took to the dance floor at a State Dinner held in his honour in Nairobi on Saturday. The visiting American president joined in the traditional Lipala dance made popular by the Kenyan afro pop group Sauti Sol. The event was hosted by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and his wife Margaret. Obama became the first sitting US president to visit Kenya this week, years after he was first elected in 2008. Incidentally, Kenya is also his father's home country. He also delivered an impassioned speech that was steeped in pride in his own African heritage. "I'm the first Kenyan-American to be president of the United States. That goes without saying," Obama spoke inside a packed Nairobi gymnasium on Sunday.
