This very month last year, the Triplets Ghetto kids were having some really good news for their fans after it turned out that they had a home of their own courtesy of French Montana.
This was after they featured in his Unforgettable song as dancers. The song that also featured Swae Lee has 1,018,761,769 YouTube views to date.
On Saturday (Nov 9), the Triplets Ghetto Kids came out to let whoever cared to know that they were on the verge of losing their Makindye based house over failure to complete the outstanding dues.
"We love this home so much!! And we really need your support to save our home. We have to pay a balance of UGX102M (27,600 US dollars) before the end of December 2019," Patricia Nabakooza, 14, the Triplets Ghetto Kids Spokesperson noted on her wall.
On the contract that indicates a balance of 102Million, their manager, Dauda Kavuma, had signed something that set tongues wagging wondering if the Ghetto Kids had a share on this house.
"The kids are under 18, so I signed on their behalf," Dauda Kavuma said.
Manager Kauma Dauda together with the Triplets Ghetto Kids paid the Speaker of Parliament a courtesy visit last week
Manager Daud Kavuma speaks out:
"The house was bought at Shs 210Million though we paid half the amount using part of the USD 25,000 that was given to us by French Montana. However, out of the 25k dollars from Montana, about 70Million hit our bank account after taxes and other costs were deducted."
"I got the 70Million plus part of the savings we had and raised 90Million which we paid to the landlord as first payment. He gave us one year to clear the balance. We then embarked on renovating the house because it was incomplete at the time of purchase."
"We hoped that we would clear within that period after all, Montana had promised us an additional USD 10,000 unfortunately that money has not come through."
"I was forced to sell our car and we managed to bring the amount paid to 108Million leaving a balance of 102,000,000 Million."
The Triplets Ghetto Kids' Manager and the Spokesperson have appealed to the public to help them in any way possible and save the house as it is the only asset they have out of their sweat. All this is happening when both their YouTube and Facebook accounts hacked and yet they are the platforms they used to get bookings for their dancing gigs especially abroad.
The triplets Ghetto Kids were first introduced by Eddy Kenzo through his 2014 Sitya Loss hit where they featured as dancers, it has 23,127,410Million YouTube views to date. Kenzo has promised to look into the matter as he has just learned of their issues through the press.
A concert is slated for December 7 at Freedom City to try and raise the money that is required for the house. The amount they are expecting from French Montana is not enough to clear the balance, but it would be a good start if it comes through.
