Talented Nigerian artist, Patoranking, posted a photo of himself dinning with Uganda’s Ghetto Kids.
That song Survivors, can best describe Uganda’s Kids dance group known as Ghetto Kids.
Before celebrating the birthday of his mum on Instagram, the singer posted a picture of him having lunch with Uganda’s kids dance group, ‘Ghetto Kids,’ which he captioned:
The group, which comprises of kids, have 16.5 thousand followers on Instagram alone and have been said to be a force to reckon with, following their intriguing dance moves.
During an interview last year, insight was gained into how the group was formed. Alex a member of the group said gave details on how life in the slum affected the lot who were all born and bred in the slums. The members are: Ssempijja, 12; Bashir Lubega, 11; Isaac Tumusiime, 10; Fred Tumwusigye, 9 and Patricia Nabakooza, 8.
I had to squeeze into a one-room house with my parents and two siblings and ate one meal a day.
Ssempijja, who explained that he had to abandon school and wearing good clothes back then was a challenge until he was discovered Dauda Kavuma, the group’s trainer and manager, during Radio Buwama’s fans day club in 2010.
All the kids who are described as survivors, at a point in their lives lived a hard knock life. But thanks to Ghetto Kids group, a new purpose was given to them all, as they have gone to appear in countless music videos for top acts.
