Atandwa Kani cannot believe the praise influencers get for just looking good and joining viral challenges. Seeing all the hype around the #JohnVuliGateChallenge has made Kani feels some type of way.
Having had to work extremely hard for his spot in the spotlight, Kani is perplexed by this whole era of influencers. The fact that someone can become famous just off of a few posts on social media or a single clip that went viral, is something Kani doesn’t quite understand.
Taking to social media to express his feelings, Kani explained how he had to study for many years and break his back to get to where he is. These days, all you have to do is shake what your momma gave you on social media and you instantly become a celebrity.
“I wish I had known, before studying for so long, working for 16 years & making life altering career choices, that all I needed to do is shake my ass to be an influencer, celebrity & a household name. F**k it, it’s your life though.”
While people get where Kani is coming from, they also feel he needs to get with the times and understand that this is the era of influencers. The people were not easy on Kani at all.
“But that wasn’t the norm 16 years ago.”
“Big star Johnson. Have some respect for other people's hustle.”
“Could have told you that for free. Actually, I think all you need is a leaked s*x tape.”
“You got to be in one the biggest Marvel movies, what are you complaining about?”
