Just watched this beautiful piece by @NginaKirori on @ntvkenya and would like to buy them the equipment they are looking and support of their talents. It's so gratifying to see young kids having so much fun in art. This is the real meaning of Sinema Mashinani. I love it! pic.twitter.com/v8QsU8pFgW

This generous offer comes after NTV journalist Ngina Kirori, did a story on the art of these young kids.
The youngsters who gained popularity after enacting various advertisements, news programs, music videos and movies, have been on a steady rise as they have gained fans across the country. Their hunger for success is evident as they use the materials at their disposal to create simple but entertaining content.
Some of the reenactments they have done include Radio Ramogi Advert, Tanasha’s song Sawa, Black Panther Movie, Bahati’s song Wanani and NTV News Bulletins among others. They have also redone pictures of various Kenyan celebrities such Alex Mwakideu, Eric Omondi, Stacy Michuki, Sauti Sol, Crazy Kennar and Masawe Japanni among others.
Celebrities like Tanasha Donna and Bahati have in the recent past lauded these young artistes and urged them to keep up with the exemplary work. With their consistency and positive press around them, the sky is the limit for H-Town Kids.
