Drake‘s ‘Toosie Slide’ dance challenge has brought joy amid the coronavirus pandemic, and he took it upon himself to help a group of African kids go viral for their moves and spread even more joy.
If you missed it, the Masaka Kids, comprised of orphans from Uganda who have crazy dancing skills, posted their rendition of the ‘Slide’ on Friday.
When Drake shared it on his Instagram Story the following day, it blew up as did the Masaka Kids’ social media following numbers.
Suuna Hassan, the founder of the organization, tells TMZ that the children wanted to partake in the challenge because they love the song and hoped Drake would notice, even though it was a long shot.
Even more awesome … we’re told since Friday, the Masaka Kids Africana account has gained more than 120,000 Instagram followers and the organization has received hundreds of dollars in donations.
Hassan says many more have inquired about how to donate clothes and other items … and Drake’s shout-out to his massive following certainly gave them a much-needed boost.
