eddy-kenzo-3
The Ghetto kids have had quite a year, towards the end of last year they lost one of their crew mates Alex sempijja who was hit by a car and later succumbed to the injuries at a local hospital. The Triplets Ghetto Kids first caught the world’s attention a couple of years ago with their moves in Eddy Kenzo’s Ugandan hit ‘Sitya Loss’. Since then their dance moves have been viewed by millions, and now have an international entertainment award in there drawers.

    Thank you for the highlight on the Triplet Ghetto Kids recent international recognition.
    Just a point of correction, Late Alex Ssempijja was not hit by a car. The bicycle he was riding had bad brakes and so could not control or stop the bicycle as he came down hill which caused the crash.
