"When the band Extra Golden, which includes two Americans and two Kenyans, approached Barack Obama for help guiding them through the Visa process, the then-senator with Kenyan ancestry was kind enough to help them out. The band was then to able to tour and subsequently record the album Hera Ma Nono, which includes the song "Obama." Extra Golden played The Orange Show last fall."
