Dakota Lewis, also known by the nickname Kota, is an American social media personality who is popular as one of the Lewis triplets alongside his two sisters Riley and Madison. While he has gained a few hundred thousand followers across various platforms, he mostly appears on the pictures and videos of his more successful siblings, who are popular on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube, and are actresses as well. He appeared alongside his two sisters in the music video for Annie LeBlanc’s 2017 single 'Ordinary Girl'. In summer that year, the three siblings were also featured in a commercial campaign for the stationery products brand Yoobi, which makes fun school and office supplies. He and his sisters attended VidCon 2016. He had collaborated with TikTok user @monaaaxi on his oldest video on the platform, posted on June 25, 2016, at the time of his trip to VidCon. The triplets celebrated their 15th birthday at the Famous Birthdays office, where they also participated in various challenge videos. He is good friends with actress and dancer Jayden Bartels who made appearances on his social media posts.
Rise to Stardom
Dakota Lewis ventured into social media following in the footsteps of his sisters, particularly Madison, who had earned a significant fan following on her TikTok profile with the handle @mads.yo in her early teens. She had joined the platform when it was still known as Musical.ly, and as she gained popularity, her siblings began to feature on her videos regularly. Dakota himself has a TikTok profile with the handle @dakotalewis_, on which he had initially posted only a couple videos, but has become more active in recent times. He mostly posts lip syncing and dance videos on the platform, and is sometimes accompanied by his sister Madison. He began posting on Instagram on March 12, 2019, sharing a picture of him standing beneath the sign of Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, California, along with the caption, "never be afraid to try something new…" Since then, he has only posted a handful of pictures of himself from various places, including Disney California Adventure Park. He is also active on Twitter on the account @kotalewis_ and on Snapchat handle @dakotalewis6. While he is not as popular as his two sisters, he has over 175K followers on TikTok, with 80k likes on his videos, and 96K followers on Instagram.
