Uganda's Triplets Ghetto Kids Land Cover of Vibe Magazine With French Montana

DISAPORA—Uganda's very own Triplets Ghetto Kids grace the cover of the latest issue of Vibe Magazine alongside Moroccan rapper, French Montana.


After featuring the young dance crew in his Kampla-shot music video for "Unforgettable," French Montana brought them onstage to perform with him during the 2017 BET Awards in Los Angeles last month.

The magazine's July cover, titled "French Montana and the Triplet Ghetto Kids On the Most 'Unforgettable' Adventure of Their Lives" features a playful shot of Montana and the nine members of Triplet Ghetto Kids: Patricia, AshleyAda, Kokode, Fred, Isaac, Kokode, Ronnie and Man King. Montana discusses his faith, his Moroccan heritage and his trip to Uganda, before some of the  teenage members of the group share their future career aspirations. One of the dancers—16-year-old Ada—reveals his desire to become a clothing designer. You can read the full interview, here.

While we're glad that French Montana has become hip to the talented youngsters, and has helped catapult their careers, they've been on our radar for quite some time now, thanks to Ugandan artist, Eddy Kenzo, who first discovered the group. Their dance routine to his song "StyleZo (Kadondo)"  went viral, with over 4 million views, and is one of our favorites.

Watch it below along with some of our favorite dance routines from the undeniably talented Triplets Ghetto Kids.
