In November 2019, the kids were captured in a video entertaining guests in their school with a crazy dancing style that impressed all and sundry.
The trio curved their backs and moved their heads to achieve an extremely impressive dance that everyone imitated in what would later be known as threesome challenge.
Despite their courage and enviable skills, the young boys were living in deplorable conditions.
Their families lived in old mud-walled houses that were on the edge of falling down.
This attracted the attention of Citizen TV journalists led by Jeff Koinange who visited them and initiated a pay bill number to help them.
