Sityaloss Kids Captures Another Top Us Artist.
Sitya Loss Kids aka Triplets Ghetto Kids, have become a viral phenomenon since they captured peoples hearts with a comical dance version of Eddy Kenzo’s ‘Sitya Loss’ in 2014.
Triplets Ghetto Kids (TGK) is a group of young entertainers from Kampala Uganda. It comprises orphaned and/or vulnerable children, 3 girls and 6 boys, ranging in age from 5 to 16 years, primarily hailing from the streets of Kampala after running away from their impoverished homes in search of food.
Now, with more than 40 videos in, Triplets Ghetto Kids managed to inspire a viral trend, the #UnforgettableDanceChallenge, in which American celebrities like Travis Scott, Swizz Beatz, DJ Khaled, Drake, Juelz Santana and even P Diddy took part in.
But let not the simplicity of the video fool you. The Triplets Ghetto Kids are now anything but ‘ghetto’ – they are professionally managed and choreographed and have a sleek Website that secures gigs for them. Their tattered clothes and dusty feet are part of the costuming, and only make an appearance in some videos.
The troupe has literally grown before our eyes, both professionally and literally. Now they are highly sought-after by international celebrities. Just weeks after appearing in French Montana’s “Unforgettable” music video which was shot in Uganda, their manager Kavuma Dauda has revealed something.
“We have been contacted by Sony Entertainment to work on a project with them. Drake also contacted us to collaborate with him on one of his projects.” Mr Dauda said this while appearing on NTV The Beat hosted by Douglas Lwanga earlier last week.
on last year, they won the Best Dance Act at the UK’s Black Entertainment Film, Fashion, Television and Arts (BEFFTA) Awards and Best Dance Group at the African Entertainment Awards in the US. They also bagged The Video Trailblazer Award at the HiPipo Music Awards and Talented Youth Star at the Rising Star Awards, both in Uganda.
