The Masaka Kids impressed Drake.

UGANDA — The Masaka Kids are now famous and they owe it all to Drake. Known for their choreographic prowess, the Ugandan orphans participated in Drake’s “Toosie Slide” challenge on Friday and knocked it out the box. Drake disseminated their performance via social media 24 hours later and the video has gone viral on TikTok, Twitter and Instagram. Suuna Hassan, the group’s manager, told TMZ the Masaka Kids were hoping to poke Drake’s curiosity when they posted their rendition of the ‘Slide.’

Turns out, they caught everyone else’s attention too.

Since the video’s accouchement, the group has gained more than 120,000 Instagram followers in conjunction with boatloads of mazuma in donations and charitable contributions. Drake also gave the children a shout-out, drawing tears of joy from Hassan and his dancin’ whippersnappers.

Drake’s “Toosie Slide” challenge has provided a much needed distraction during the coronavirus pandemic.

Watch the Masaka Kids do their thing.

    Hey kids! when you go to “church” this weekend don’t forget to wear your MASK.

    Oh and you might try to not show any skin at all, (cover yourself in hefty bags or whatever black material you can find around the house) because REMEMBER it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to make the virus not want you!

  2. Such beautiful souls

  3. What a mess, Africa, is, full of resources but so many people living in poverty. Has to be a contender for #1 in corruption.

  4. I just LOVE!!!! AFRICA!!! My Africa

  5. @manny quinn: MAKE AFRICA GREAT ONCE

  6. I bet they all want to be rappers and dream of their first gold chain or diamond grill

  7. This is what I love to see… kids happy and having fun. God bless them.

  8. Wow that’s so cute ❤️🤩😍

  9. Dancing is boring unless a beautiful woman is in your arms

  19. They train those lil coloreds early to entertain us Whites. I wish they would train them to get a job.

  20. This world would be stale as hell without black/African people!!!! Damn I love being black!!!!!!

  21. Black people are weird and ugly!

  22. looks stupid

  23. @Kudjo: Jealous saltine? Hahaha…..

    Ok Drake. These kids need more than attention. You net over $150 million. Truly you can afford some shoes, clothing, etc for these children. Heck, one of your cars could replace their center.

  25. Drake is worth a few hundred million dollars. He could easily give that organization a cool mil and it would probably feed all those kids for years

  26. Those kids are supper talented!

  27. I hope he gives them more than just a shout out.

  28. If this happened in a Muslim nation those kids would’ve been beaten senseless.

  29. Keith Franceschiello

    Thugs doing the Electric Slide.

  30. Is Drake’s Jewish half preventing him from buying those kids some shoes?

  31. 🎉🎉🎉Congratulations❤️🥳🥳🥳

  32. Karshundra Davis

    Here it is we gripe or complain over little things, these children just have joy within their hearts and that’s a very important yet beautiful thing. 💕💕💕🙌🏽

    Drake´s gay AF

  34. Satan Is A Liberal

    I’m torn about my feelings towards Drake
    I can’t decide whether he has a face that deserves to be punched or a neck that deserves to be stretched

  35. 9.2 million Africans live in servitude without the choice to do so, according to the 2020 Global Slavery Index.

    Where is the outrage? Is it because their slave masters are black? They get a pass

  36. @Bob Barker: Shhh, Coloreds don’t like FACTS that make them look bad. They like to live in their own little fantasy world where Whites are to blame of all of their problems, especially the ones they create for themselves.

  37. Mudathir Ismail

    Africans dance naturally without any dancing schools
