The Masaka Kids Africana’s YouTube channel is the most followed in Uganda and they earn about $103,600 each month according to findings made by visualcapitalist.com.

Currently standing at over 200 million combined views and 1.1 million subscribers, the Masaka Kids Africana verified YouTube channel reaps big for the Ugandan dance group.

It’s a case of rugs to riches if we are to go by these findings because $103,600 translates to over UGX 383m. That is a jackpot! The most interesting thing according to the findings is that this money is earned monthly.

Composed of young talented children who were formerly homeless, the Masaka Kids Africana group joined YouTube on 28th April 2018. They have often shared videos dancing to several artiste’s music.

It doesn’t take much digging to find out that a video of them dancing to Eddy Kenzo’s song Tweyagale is the most watched Ugandan video on YouTube with 55 million views (posted on 23rd February 2020).
