Triplets Ghetto Kids; from Ghetto to Stardom!!!

If you have ever watched “Unforgettable” by the Moroccan American-Based rapper called French Montana, you would have seen the little kids who danced at the background. Well, they are called the Triplets Ghetto Kids. Are you wondering how such Ghetto kids could grace the video of such a renowned rapper?

It has been a journey of pains, hard work, despair, emotional trauma and finally, happiness and joy for those little kids you saw dancing. Back at the slums of Uganda, this group of children has finally shown the world that Africa has got real talents.

Early Begining

The “Triplets Ghetto Kids” is a dancing group of originally, eight young children named Alex Sempija (Late), Ada, Patricia, Kokode, Nyangoma, Fred, Issac, Ronnie, Man King, and their little baby Ashley.

These Triplets Ghetto Kids was originally founded as a dancing group, with the aim of entertaining people in the streets and surviving with the proceeds that came out of the donations given to them as appreciation.

They rehearsed under the sun, rain; and even sickness resulting from malnutrition wasn’t enough to stop them from doing what they loved doing. The brain behind the formation of the group and its survival at an early stage was known as Alex. He was Patricia’s elder brother; Alex died after him and his sis had a bike accident after returning from one of their street performances. Patricia went into a coma but was so lucky to survive.

Struggles

When the going became hard, and the struggle for survival was becoming intense, they were picked up by a man called Ticha, who later turned out to become their manager.

Ticha promised their various parents that he could harness their talents and find a way to give them a better life with the dancing talents they all possessed. The Triplets Ghetto Kids continued to dance in the street, getting appreciations from onlookers. Along the line, their manager Ticha decided to go digital. With the help of YouTube, the Triplets Ghetto Kids were able to showcase their dancing skills to the whole world. Views after views, dance after dance, and likes after likes, they became a force to reckon with in the dancing world.

Suddenly, Boom went the recognition that they all struggled through tears and pains to get. Someone got interested in their dancing style and offered a deal to the Triplets Ghetto Kids to feature in his new song video. Negotiations were done, and the American based Rapper French Montana was live in Uganda to shoot his video with the Triplets Ghetto Kids dancing crew.
