London, July 10(ANI): On a visit to Kosovo, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair met nine boys who were named after him.

Parents named their newborns after Blair to thank him for his role in leading the international community to intervene to stop repression of the ethnic-Albanian majority.

The group of young Tony Blairs sang Michael Jackson hit "We Are The World" against the backdrop of a huge billboard that said "a leader, a friend, a hero" referring to Blair, in central Pristina.

"As you can see your name is quite common in our country," the Telegraph quoted a teenage hostess as telling Blair.

All of Kosovo's Tony Blairs were born after the 1999 war between ethnic Albanian fighters in Kosovo and Serbian presidents Slobodan Milosevic's forces. (ANI)
