Recently I reviewed French Montana's new video for 'Unforgettable' were he featured the talented kids known as Triplets Ghetto Kids. I thought I should shed more light on these beautifully gifted group from Uganda.

The group became internet sensations after being featured in Eddy Kenzo's 'Sitya Loss' music video. There were speculations that the artist abandoned the kids as he refused to pay them.

They are currently nine in the group;

3 young ladies

Ricia Nyangoma

Ashley Kavuma

6 young gentlemen 

Bashir Lubega aka Ada
Hassan Sseruwu aka Kokode
Fred Tumwesigye
Isaac Tumusiime

They lost a pioneer member, Alex Ssempijja, in a road accident in Uganda  November 2015 and was a huge loss for them.

On how he found out about Triplets Ghetto Kids before featuring them in 'Unforgettable', French Montana disclosed to Billboard:
I listen to a lot of African music. I was on the computer going through it, and I ran across these kids. I was a fan and I felt like I saw me in them, 'cause I grew up in Africa when I was their age. I was doing the same thing they were doing. In my head, I was playing 'Unforgettable.' They were just dancing and I fell in love with it and said, 'I gotta find these kids.' It was something new, it was a breath of fresh air. With having gone through living in poverty and being happy with nothing, they channel that through their dance moves and their energy. Them having no TVs and just learning how to dance, it just makes them have their own moves and their own swagger.
Triplets Ghetto Kids are truly a "breath of fresh air". From here onward, it's all the way up for them.
