Internet sensations Kili and Neema Paul found a special mention on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s radio programme ‘Mann ki Baat’ today. The Tanzanian siblings, known for their lip-sync and dance videos to Indian music, have gone viral in India for their accuracy.

While talking about Indian culture and heritage, the Prime Minister talked about the young siblings on the programme.

“These days, two Tanzanian siblings, Kili Paul and his sister Neema, are in the news a lot on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and I'm sure you too, must have heard about them. They have a passion, a craze for Indian music and for this reason they are also very popular. Their technique of lip sync shows how hard they work at it,” Modi said.

He went on to praise Kili and Neema for their renditions of India’s national anthem on Republic Day and Kili’s tribute to iconic singer Lata Mangeshkar after her demise.
