The Triplet Ghetto Kids become the third Ugandans to be nominated in these awards after popular comedian Anne Kansiime and artist Eddy Kenzo.
The Big Talent boss emerged the winner in the 2018 awards after beating Tanzania's Diamond Platnumz and Nigeria's Davido and Emmanuella.
The Triplet Ghetto Kids rose to fame in 2014, causing a buzz with their viral video dancing to Eddy Kenzo's Sitya Loss'. To date, the video has been watched by over 25 million people on YouTube.

Despite comments from fans in the diaspora urging the kids to dress in proper clothes, they have maintained their dressing arguing that it defines who they are.
