Yeison Blayas Copete, more popularly known among his fans as Jeison Copete, has been taking social media by storm over the past few years. Jeison has managed to amass a huge fan following on social channels like Twitter and Instagram and has reached dizzying heights of popularity on Tik Tok, the app known for its short-form mobile video content.
“I was born into a poor family in a little town in the state of Antioquia and had to face some extreme living conditions,” says Jeison Copete recalling his childhood days. “After I was abandoned by my mother in a foundation in Bogota when I was just two, I was lucky to be supported by my Godmother Liliana Angarita who always stood by side, supported me, and sponsored my studies. I believe that the early days of struggle made me mentally tough and helped me focus sharply on my future goals.”
Jeison’s mother never visited him after he was put in a foundation in Bogota. After acquiring basic education thanks to the large-heartedness of his Godmother, Jeison left the foundation as a mature and responsible teenager at 17. He wanted to live alone and explore the opportunities that fate brought along.
At 18, he met a team of creative artists that went by the name ‘iamdvdx’. The team comprising of Sebastian Villalobos, Mario Ruiz, Arnold Agudelo, and David Echeverry were into video recording and gave Jeison an opportunity to prove his talent. He did a casting and was selected to do videos for the team.
Inspired and motivated by his success, Jeison completed his High School and traveled to Buenos Aires to find work. During the course of his stint there, he came in contact with Leo Venegas and other famous YouTubers. He also traveled to Mexico as a guest influencer and gradually gained global recognition on the internet.
He started working as a content creator on twitter in 2012 and was representative of the twitter application at the Kids Choice Awards in 2016. Today, he represents his country in Argentina, Miami, and New York and is an established content creator. He has also finished his gastronomy course and has been selected as the brand ambassador of an energy drink called Bang Energy.
Jeison Copete currently lives in Argentina and has been working with many international and iconic brands such as Coca Cola, Huawei, Chevrolet, MTV, Sony Music, Microsoft, among others. He also travels to many countries including Mexico, Venezuela, Chile, Peru, and the USA to talk about social networks.
Jeison was in Mexico recently in the “Digital Era” where he held a YouTube and influencer meeting on an international level. His recent achievements include the presentation of his show at the Club Media Fest in Argentina and on multiple occasions. He has also given talks on social media at Tecnopolis in Latin America.
