Social media networks have seen overnight sensations; from content creators utilizing flamboyant fireworks, over celebrity collaborators, to athletic wonders, but none stand out as IBallRight, a young American social media star that took YouTube by storm with his heavily acclaimed water videos.
Daniel, as known as, IBallRight moved to the United States from Rwanda approximately a decade ago. A social media superstar in his own right, IBallRight has amassed over 200 million views on his YouTube channel while his TikTok followers have graced his account with well over 10 million likes.
IBallRight’s rise to fame began with When God Created videos. He began creating water videos during quarantine and was searching for inspiration to create content at his home. One of his first clips was “How God Created Shaquille O’Neal,” which currently boasts over 1,279,000 views.
In this particular YouTube short video, IBallRight does not use any background music, nor does he speak. He had created a unique format and a trend that rely solely on creativity.
Shaquille O’ Neal, the globally-renowned basketball icon was so impressed that he even resposted the video on his official channel. This event made IBallRight’s videos viral, and in Daniel’s words “I haven’t looked back since then.”
With a few household accessories, a healthy sense of humor, and pure genius, IBallRight has created dozens of videos that boast millions of views in total.
Daniel’s YouTube shorts and videos are rapidly growing in popularity as he “speaks” what is on the minds of younger generations without uttering a single word. Similar to Khaby Lame, a TikTok celebrity with over 144 million fans and 2.3 billion likes, IBallRight’s viral videos bring laughter and joy to thousands of his loyal fans and followers as he empties cans, bottles, and jugs of water into a bowl in silence.
