Masaka Kids Africana’s performance for FC Barcelona excites Ugandans

Dressed in replica jerseys of Spanish football club FC Barcelona, youngsters belonging to Uganda’s dance group Masaka Kids Africana performed before spectators at Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys at halftime on Monday evening.

The group’s performance was spiced up with music and dance where a member of the group sang one of their recorded songs as he was accompanied by the rest of his colleagues who showcased different dance strokes on the pitch as the fans of FC Barcelona and those of the away team watched on.

It was a night to remember after the home team Barcelona won the match with four goals, defeating the visiting team Valencia CF who only managed to score twice.

The pictures and clips showing the performance of the dance group have excited several netizens back in Uganda and have commended them for raising Uganda’s flag higher.

“These are our kids from Uganda, thank you so much FC Barcelona for giving them the platform to show case their talent,” commented a one Yusuf Kaggwa on a post that was put up by the club on Facebook.

“We also appreciate what they are doing, thanks for uplifting our Uganda flag  Masaka Kids,and am gonna thank my team Barcelona for having a trust in these young kids,” wrote another excited fan identified as Yusuf Bin Muzafaru.

The kids touched down in Spain last week on an invitation from the FC Barcelona and the Barca Foundation an organisation that supports the most vulnerable child and youth through educational sport and projects.
