President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama Nail the Tango in Argentina

The Obamas slay, OK? U.S. President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama attended an official state dinner for Argentine President Mauricio Macri on Wednesday, March 23, and the first couple nailed the country’s national dance, the tango.

During the event held at the Kirchner Cultural Centre in Buenos Aires, guests were treated to a tango showcase. Making the performance all the more special? The fact that POTUS and his wife were invited to participate.

Michelle, who looked elegant in a satin tea-length dress, and a sharp suit-clad Barack lit up the dance floor with impressive footwork and plenty of Latin flavor.

This isn’t the first time the political pair have proved they know how to get their groove on. During his first presidential campaign, Barack made an October 2007 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he joined the talk-show host in an impromptu boogie to Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love.”

“You’ve got some moves!” DeGeneres, 58, told the politician at the time.

Eight years later in May 2015, Michelle also appeared on DeGeneres’ show where the two had a friendly dance-off to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” in support of the first lady’s “Let’s Move” campaign.

She swept President Obama off his feet when they tangoed together during his visit to Argentina last week.

And now 43-year-old professional dancer Mora Godoy has admitted she was actually told not to dance with the American leader but did it anyway.

‘It wasn’t in the protocol. To tell you the truth, it was forbidden for me to ask him to dance,’ said Godoy, who became an instant sensation when photos emerged of her and Obama dancing and dipping after a state dinner in Buenos Aires.

‘This is why everyone was surprised, especially President Mauricio Macri, who then supported my invitation.’

What President Obama may not have known at the time is that Ms Godoy previously appeared on the July 2006 cover of Playboy, and was fully nude in an accompanying spread.

Ms Godoy had prepared an Argentine tango for the guests to enjoy at the dinner but was told she was not to invite the president on to the dance floor.

But during her performance, the dancer said she decided to throw caution to the wind and ask Obama if he would join in with her.

Although the president at first seemed hesitant, he accepted the invitation, creating a moment that went viral on social media. 

Ms Godoy has said that when she approached the president, he seemed hesitant at first and was unsure about dancing

She told the Farandula Show in Argentina: ‘These things don’t happen everyday. They can happen in your life or not.’ 

She later added; ‘President Obama was totally surprised. He said “Ok, but I don’t know how to dance. I’ll follow you”. He’s an exceptional dancer.’

It was not just President Obama who got to show off some moves either, with First Lady Michelle Obama also taking some time to tango.

She was swept off her feet by Ms Godoy’s partner, José Lugones, that evening in Buenos Aires.

‘Michelle was the star of the evening. She was very happy because she danced. She thanked me when her dance was done,’ said Ms Godoy.

And despite how steamy Ms Godoy’s dance with President Obama may have appeared, thanks in large part to her gold sequined dress with a large slit, she said that she actually toned down the sensuality of her moves.

However, she did not turn down the sensuality when she appeared in Playback in 2006, being featured on the cover wearing nothing but a fedora as she sat backwards on a chair.

Inside she also showed off some of her tango moves topless. 

Meanwhile, not everybody was as impressed with Obama’s tango as his dance partner. 

Republican politicians including presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz repeatedly called for the president to return home in the wake of the Brussels terrorist attacks last Tuesday.

President Obama instead decided to finish his trip to Cuba before heading to Argentina and then returning home.

In addition to his wife he was joined on the trip by daughters Sasha and Malia and his mother-in-law Marian Robinson.

MAN RAPES DANCING MATE ON STAGE WHILE PATRONS WATCH, CHEERINGHot on the heels of the story of the Harare dirty dancer who bonked a patron on stage, revellers at a council bar in Rujeko, Masvingo popularly known as Marry Me, were last week treated to a free xx movie when a suspected mentally unsound man failed to control his insatiable s*xual appetite and allegedly raped a woman in full view of the cheering patrons.

The incident, which baffled regular patrons of the popular watering hole in Rujeko C suburb, occurred around 10pm following the 34-year-old woman’s suggestive dance with Ezra Maisiri popularly known as Baba Goddy.

According to witnesses, the woman was dancing to Macheso’s Tafadzwa song with Maisiri, caressing his anaconda which was getting angrier by the minute. The woman, who was visibly drunk, made some gyrating moves, dragging the s**ually “stirred” Maisiri closer to her body with ecstatic patrons cheering. In her drunken stupor, she allegedly shoved her hand into Maisiri’s trousers after which she met her match.

“Like what mentally unsound men would do, Maisiri took no notice of the huge spectacle and tripped her to the ground and in a twinkle of an eye, he daringly mounted on top of the woman, who partly due to her level of sobriety, could not do anything but succumb to the assault,” said a patron who identified himself as Joe.

He said, surprisingly enough, instead of coming to the woman’s rescue, patrons cheered while others were busy taking videos and photos with their smart phones.

“After the ordeal, the woman, who seemed to be back to her senses, went straight to Rujeko police post, which is a shouting distance from the council beer hall, to file a formal report of rape,” added Joe.

Maisiri was arrested and when he was asked why he committed the crime, he said the woman was the one who stimulated his manhood and continued caressing him despite seeing that he was aroused.

“I could not control myself because the pressure she was exerting on me was too much. I thought she would end by caressing but she went on and touched my manhood that I could hardly resist the temptation. Despite me being visibly aroused, she continued caressing me and temptation overwhelmed me,” said Baba Goddy when asked by police.

However, Maisiri pleaded not guilty when he appeared before magistrate Langton Ndokera last week facing charges of rape. He was remanded out of custody to 21 January for trial. Ndokera also ordered Maisiri to be examined by two doctors.

Fidelicy Nyamukondiwa prosecuted.
