We will never let the world forget you, our brother
In November 2015 we lost our brother, Alex, but we vowed never to let him be forgotten. We've done many things to keep his memory present and one thing is this: we decided to give him his own special home here on our website so that everyone who comes here can see his smiling face and find out about how special he is to all of us. It has been very painful but we want to remember the great things about him and the happiness he gave us.
Alex was the first of the Triplets Ghetto Kids, he was the older brother. You’ll see Alex’s long smile and witty humour in all of our early videos. Many people know him from Sitya Loss and call him "The one with no shirt on" but he's also the one who started of all the dancing. People loved him because he was confident, fast, funny and had a natural sense for the beat. Alex was vital for making that video a success and making Triplets Ghetto Kids a world-famous act.
Don't forget that other great videos to see Alex in are Follow Follow and Kyana Gwe. Alex's final performance in Victory is also a memorable one and the way we like to remember him, laughing and smiling.
Alex was excellent at warming the heart and making you smile
He once told a European reporter that he planned to be the president of Uganda 😀 Maybe he understood that even the smallest street kid can become the greatest person in the country. He also explained to a BBC reporter what his life was like before we started Triplets Ghetto Kids. Listen to him talking:
But when we all came together, it was as if a type of magic had changed everything for us
We had a home, a plan and a place in the world. We had each other.
