Uganda’s Ghetto Kids on Edge of Winning Britain’s Got Talent

by Atlantic Chronicles

The famous Ugandan dance group, Ghetto Kids, are among 10 finalists of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, after they sailed through the competition’s semi-finals on Thursday.

The winner of the £250,000 (approximately 190,905,750 francs) prize will be known on Sunday, June 4, as the 10 finalists battle for a winning chance.

The finals of Britain’s Got Talent’s 16th series is highly anticipated. Many look forward to seeing who will be the next champion after British stand-up comedian, Axel Blake, in 2022.

Ghetto Kids’ qualification to the semi-finals has been hyped on many news blogs across Africa, and many are eager to see them win the highly contested BGT trophy.

The dance troupe thrilled audiences at BGT’s first round in April, and won the jury’s heart at the semi-finals to earn a final spot.

Ghetto Kids, the group that consists of street kids and orphans, was founded by Kavuma Dauda in Kampala, Uganda, in 2014. The group’s mission, as stated on the Inspire Ghetto Kids Foundation website, is “to empower children exploit their talents through music, dance and drama”.

They first gained international attention after dancing to Eddy Kenzo’s “Sitya Loss” and have since then worked with several international musicians including French Montana, Chris Brown, Wiz Kid, Eddy Kenzo, among others.

Ghetto Kids have won several awards among them AFRIMMA (Best African Dance 2017), BEFFTA (Best Dance Crew 2016), HIPIPO Awards (Trailblazer 2015), PAFA (Best Fashion Group 2017), AEA – USA (Best Dance Group 2017), RIAA Awards USA (2017), and YouTube Creators Awards (2020).
