    1. Holy cow they are gorgeous..

    2. So beautiful 🥰 Greetings from Scotland 😊 Have a wonderful day everyone 🌻

    3. I'm smiling the whole time watching this. Nice to see a guy who holds dearly his tradition and appreciating the technology and using it for good benefits. Also, they love Indian songs. I like it too.

    4. Neema Paul is so beautiful..natural beauty..

    5. I like his tiktok making me laugh and gives lots of enjoyment

    6. What amazes me about this video is the lifestyle and the spoken English… they don't correlate.

      But am proud and humbled at the same time.

    7. They look so good.

    8. He's so

    9. I wonder how I can get in contact with the boy who has to ride a motorcycle to the village to charge his phone. I'd like to buy him a solar phone charger.

    10. Thank you for appreciating our culture! May the peace and prosperity be upon lovely people of Masai and Tanzanian nation.🇮🇳🇹🇿

    11. 😌🇮🇳much respect to you guys from india

    12. Let's be honest…this isn't about talent. It's a sympathy vote to feel good about yourselves.

    13. There’s probably a million girls crushing over this kid

    14. Technology is getting everywhere and people still insist that we're reaching the hight of technology. We're not even close to the full potential of technology.

    15. You are born to be a dancer! 👍

    16. He looked like a King sitting there. How can he exude that much power? I dunno how to put it. He just looked like someone in total control and u can trust. Go to in crisis etc

    17. The sucking Dhol Music behind is so annoying for the vdo..tho… I'm not Indian and really… impressed by these 2…hahah… wishing for their well future.. 💚🌸
