Kongos Offer To Play Donald Trump's Inauguration

In a series of social media posts, Kongos has offered to play Donald Trump's inauguration. The South African-born band posted to Facebook saying, "Donald J. Trump - we'll play your inauguration. Our new album, "Egomaniac" and single "The World Would Run Better" are fantastic...tremendous sounds."
Since their initial offering, Kongos has followed up with a number of Twitter posts, including suggesting that they would get Mike Huckabee on bass, that their fee would tax-deductible, and that they would get Roger Waters "to open for us and build the wall."
The gag was clearly all for a bit of fun, as obviously Trump would prefer an American band to play his inauguration. However, it seems to have backfired on the Arizona-based brothers as some fans have decided they are no longer fans because of the jests.
