"The beautiful Dancing trio from Baringo South Constituency, Baringo County. They danced not knowing what was in store for them. They were spotted and featured on JKL and now Jeff Koinange and friends have facilitated them to join Little Lambs School, Nyahururu. We're most excited for them! Thanks a lot for sharing the posts featuring them," a post on Kalenjins Online Facebook page reads.

The three boys, who are always together according to Ilchamus area chief Jacob Letangule, rose to prominence while performing at a secondary school prayer day for examination candidates.

However, they were not aware that someone among the guest was recording their performance.

A paybill number was set up and Kenyans responded in huge numbers.

In December last year, Jeff Koinange and his colleagues Rashid Abdullah and Prof Hamo visited the boys with gifts, including foodstuffs, shoes, mattresses and other items for the boys and their families.
