The Toosie Slide dance challenge by Canadian rapper, Drake, went global and a children's dance group from Uganda got the attention of the famed rapper.
The oung kings and queens, Masaka Kids, form a group composed of orphaned children from Uganda.
The group posted their dance video version of Toosie Slide online and it was shared by Drake to millions of his followers.
Drake even contacted the group to ask if he could post their video to his millions of fans.
According to the group's founder, Suuna Hassan, many people have contacted them inquiring how they could help.
She added they received donations which included money, clothes and several other items in order to help the children out.
Since Friday when the video was shared, the Masaka Kids Africana Instagram account gained over 120k new followers.
The dancers' only mission was to get the attention of Drake, but more goodies came with his attention.
Unlike the normal Toosie Slide challenges shared by many on social media, the orphaned kids put a lot of skill and time as they produced an African style masterpiece.
The song was released days after Drake's 14 quarantine days were over and had been confirmed negative for Covid-19.
