However, it was not like Obama was the only one who was getting letting his hair down. Former first lady, Michelle Obama, who was attending JAY-Z's On the Run II concert in Paris, was spotted having a dance party of her own.

The next day, Obama arrived in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he delivered a moving and encouraging speech at the Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture. He gave an address in honor of Nelson Mandela, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday on July 18.

His message in the speech was moving, different from the meeting President Trump had with Vladimir Putin, which was criticized for the current President supporting Russia concerning interference in the 2016 election.

In his speech, Barack Obama condemned “strongman politics” and “politics of fear, resentment, retrenchment,” which he mentioned were springing up in the present times.

Apart from delivering the speech at Johannesburg, he spent some time dancing there as well. He danced with Graca Machel, Mandela's widow, and the South African President Cyril Ramaphosa during a performance by Thandiswa Mazwai.
