Popular American Talk Show host, Steve Harvey, has taken to his verified Twitter account with about 4.2 million followers to hail Nigerian internet sensation, Ikorodu Bois.
The group consists of the trio — Muiz Sanni (15), Malik Sanni (10) and Fawas (13). They are known for remaking, mimicking and recreating multimillion-dollar music videos, movie scenes and movie trailers using ordinary household items.
The iconic American entertainer gave the lads a thumbs up by posting on his Twitter a video of one of the youngsters standing in front of a television set as he mimicked one of his messages which was delivered on his programme, Motivation.
Harvey captioned the video, “#Motivated Flexed biceps @ikorodub
Acknowledging the pat on the back by the American actor, the Ikorodu Bois reposted the tweet and captioned it, “Mr Steve!! #Mentor“
Recently, the young boys have been receiving a lot of encouragement from Hollywood stars.
A few days ago, iconic Hollywood director, Zack Snyder, had a virtual video where he made it known that he loves the Ikorodu Bois’ remake of his movie trailer, Army of the Dead.
Last year, the Ikorodu Bois drew the attention of the producers of the movie, Russo Brothers, following the remake of the movie trailer, Extraction.
After watching their remake, in a tweet, the Russo Brothers expressed excitement at the remake and invited the trio to the world premiere of their Netflix action film sequel.
Also, Netflix — a US media service and streaming giant — enlisted Ikorodu Bois for its campaign to mark this year’s edition of the Oscars.
Moreso, the skit makers were nominated for the Favourite African Social Media Star’ category at the 2021 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards. However, they lost out to Nigerian comedienne, Emmanuella.
