Rise to Fame
Derrick Cummings is popular on social media under the pseudonym, Famous Debo. The oldest photograph on Cummings’ Instagram was posted on October 28, 2017. It is a picture of Cummings himself looking away from the camera. He has a crown made of yellow lights on top of his head that clearly had been added later to the photograph. The oldest video on his page was uploaded on December 24, 2017. It features Cummings’ duet with a fellow Instagrammer. Since then, his page has gradually grown. At present, he receives tens of thousands of views and thousands of comments on each of his posts on the platform.
Cummings’ comedy does not particularly depend on his deliverance of a joke. His videos are not skits. Instead, they are predominantly dance videos. His audience finds humour in his expressions and antics during these performances. In recent months, he has collaborated with the likes of prettyluhlaii, raeupnow, semaj_lesley, famousoceann, xclusive_jayy, the0nly_nevaeh, and riritheofficial. He is a friend of fellow social media star Chris_gone_crazy and has made several videos with him.
Cummings often posts content made on platforms like Dubsmash and PicPlayPost on his Instagram. He is currently represented by Fresh Empire.
He set up his YouTube channel, ‘D- Bizzle,’ on January 3, 2016, and began posting videos on November 27, 2018. Despite having the channel for a few years, he has only uploaded a handful of videos. The oldest video on the channel, ‘Marry, Kill, Or Smash | public interview!’, shows Cummings and three of his friends roaming around a mall, approaching girls, and asking them if they would kill, marry, or smash the boys. In another video, titled ‘First Vlog of 2019,’ Cummings and his friends can be seen travelling in a car and later visiting a mall, where they are told that they cannot film there. In a video titled ‘Kiss Or Slap Me Challenge !!’, they are again in a mall, challenging girls to either kiss or slap them.
While Cummings has an account on Twitter under the username driplikedebo, he has not posted anything on it yet.
