A Croatian volunteering in an African orphanage has not taken long to teach the locals a famous Croatian electropop hit.

Filip, who is a recently graduated engineer, left Croatia at the end of March to volunteer in Uganda, Ruanda, and Congo where he is helping build a school for 50 orphans, daily Slobodna Dalmacija reports.

Whilst there he is also teaching the kids how to play basketball and the lyrics of a well-known Croatian hit released in 1989 – ‘Ti si mi u mislima’ by Dino Dvornik.

As seen in the video below, the kids seemed to enjoy learning the song.
