One of the best things about children is that they know how to enjoy life to the fullest, and they don’t need much to do it!


For years, the kids of Masaka Kids Africana have shown us just that.

Despite going through some of the worst experiences a child could face, like losing one or both their parents, these kids from Uganda have learned that they can heal from their past through the power of music. Their countless fun videos throughout the years prove that they have a bright future ahead… and also that they sure know how to dance like pros, or in some instances, even better than pros!

One of their latest videos has caught the attention of more than 35 million social media users around the world, including actresses Jennifer Garner and Hilary Duff. In this video, the kids of this organization dance to the popular Harry Styles song “As It Was.” But it’s not just any choreography. This is probably the most energetic, adorable, and fun video accompanied by this song we’ve seen (sorry Harry).

The best thing about these kids is that they seem to be having the time of their lives with their improvised and handmade instruments.

We don’t know about you, but this video put a smile on our faces. Also, if they were to go on tour, we would be right there in the first row!

Watch these kids spreading joy with their performance in the video below, and don’t forget to share with a friend.
