His fame made him do tones of collaboration with renowned celebrities such as Naomi Campbell and Greta Thunberg.

As his fame rose through, he moved from thousand followers to gaining 126 million followers and getting 2 billion likes in his TikTok.

As much as he has all those followers in Tiktok alone he was able to gain 67 million followers on Instagram alone making him the most followed African.
