The children were over the moon when they met French footballer Mbappé and had their picture taken with them.
This is not the first time they face famous footballers.
During the 2022 World Cup, they shared videos of themselves dancing with Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero and Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand.
Ferdinand even openly appealed to FIFA to include the dance group in the list of artists for the big World Cup final.
“In the final, that’s when the best are gonna be playing but we need the pregame to have the best dancers, the Ghetto Kids. FIFA, we need these guys!” he said.
They also performed for the Qatari royal family and FIFA officials ahead of the start of the global tournament.
They landed the deal after putting on a viral performance online that garnered over 2.5 million views on Facebook alone.
