Uganda’s sensational Ghetto Kids have missed out on the final of Britain’s Got Talent.
The talented group gave an outstanding performance.
However, despite their impressive performance, they failed to secure one of the top three spots in the recently concluded competition.
The talented children were among the finalists of Britain’s Got Talent after battling it out with several other talented competitors to reach the final.
The coveted title of Britain’s Got Talent 2023 winner and the grand prize of £250,000 (about Sh42.8 million) and a performance slot at the Royal Variety Performance was won by Viggo Venn, a 33-year-old comedian from Norway.

The much-anticipated final on 4 June 2023 featured an exceptional line-up of talent from the previous stages of the competition.
Among the standout performers were Ghetto Kids, Malakai Bayoh, Duo Odyssey, Musa Motha, Amy Lou, Viggo Venn, Olivia Lynes, Travis George, Cillian O’Connor and Lillianna Clifton.
Triplets Ghetto Kids are the first dance group to compete on such a big platform.
Founded in 2014 by Daouda Kavuma, Ghetto Kids is a music group made up of children from the Katwe slums in Kampala, Uganda.
Following their appearance in Eddy Kenzo’s captivating music video for ‘Sitya Loss’, the group shot to internet stardom and captured the hearts of viewers around the world.
Embracing their origins and proud of their upbringing in the ghettos of Kampala, the talented ensemble adopted the name ‘The Ghetto Kids’, choosing to reflect their background with authenticity and honour.
In April 2023, the Ghetto Kids appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, where the new judge, Bruno Tonioli, gave them the golden buzzer during their performance.
The group is made up of 30 children.
