Hugh Masekela's football skills

This is a music break with a football reference in there. In 1984 Hugh Masekela’s single “Don’t Go Lose It Baby” (off the album “Techno Bush”) reached number two for two weeks on the dance charts. The song has a nice beat to do it. It can set any party alight. But it’s the video that I like more. It is probably the only footage of Masekela showing off his football skills. Watch from the 1:36 mark. Masekela also plays coach for a minute.

BTW, the video looks like it was shot in Botswana. Anyone can confirm that?
