-UGANDAN Ghetto kids have secured a place into the Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals as their act bagged the Golden Buzzer.

The Ghetto Kids, formerly Triplets Ghetto Kids, are a dance/music group founded in 2014 by Daouda Kavuma composed of children from the Katwe slums in Kampala, Uganda.

The Ghetto kids put up an energetic routine act which resulted in Italian choreographer Bruno Tonioli pushing the golden buzzer midway into the talented group’s presentation.

Following the performance, Tonioli said their performance made him “feel like exploding”.

“I was literally exploding. You should be proud of yourselves, I can’t wait to see you back,”

“I’ve to do it now,” Tonioli said before hitting the buzzer, which meant that the troupe went straight through the live shows.

The Ghetto kids did not stop their performance but continued dancing on golden confetti.

If an act is awarded the Golden Buzzer at the end of their audition, it grants a place in one of the live semi-finals of the show, skipping past the boot camp stage of the competition.

Britain’s Got Talent returned for its 16th season on Saturday.

The judges still remain Simon Cowell, 63; Amanda Holden, 52; Alesha Dixon, 44, and newcomer Bruno Tonioli, 67.

The Ghetto Kids consists of 30 children who live in an orphanage in Uganda.

They have appeared on major platforms across the world featuring in French Montana’s “Unforgettable” video and performing at a World Cup 2022 event in Qatar.

They have also performed at numerous events around the world including the BET Awards and the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
