  • Caspar Lee – the SA teenager with 500 000 plus Twitter followers [pic]
    Posted by on May 17th, 2013

    Did you know that there is a teenager in South Africa with over half a million Twitter followers? Neither did i, but now you do. Caspar Lee is by all definitions an internet sensation and he’s from Knysna. His YouTube channel has 865 000 plus subscribers and to date his videos have racked up over 40 million views.

    That is a pretty damn outstanding following and he’s done it pretty much under the radar.

    Ya hey…as far as i can tell he’s the second most followed person in South Africa…ranked higher than Nelson Mandela even.

    Why is he so popular…well i’m taking it his YouTube videos have a lot to do with it, but i’m not his target audience so don’t listen to me.

    Props though…kid is not even twenty and has created a huge following.

    Brands should be all over him.

    Buying followers has also never been easier. Sad but true and just something that should be noted as this doesn’t seem possible. Caspar Lee more popular than Nelson Mandela or someone like Gareth Cliff? Seems unlikely. #JustSaying 😉

    Mr Sav, weird you havent heard of him, seeing that youre on the web like everyday, dude is big (especially in the UK). got little 12 year old girls all bieberish for him. Not my cuppa tho, but some of his vids are funny.
