Rise to Fame
  • Jania Bania was just another teenager who regularly posted photographs on her Instagram account. What set her apart were her stunning looks and the knowledge of perfect camera angles. She started modelling at a young age and therefore knew how to face a camera. The quality photographs helped her accumulate a solid fan following on Instagram, where she constantly uploaded selfies as well as glamourous photographs. In no time, Jania became a minor celebrity. Her prior cheerleading skills and sporting abilities also helped her diversify her Instagram feed. However, her biggest social media breakthrough came when she started dating the popular rapper Kentrell Gaulden and openly spoke about it on her social media platforms. Many started following her account to get a glimpse of the couple’s relationship, and soon enough, she had over 500,000 followers on the photo-sharing app. The ensuing fame resulted in the social media influencer getting more opportunities to collaborate with major fashion brands and companies.
  • Immediately after Jania’s relationship with Gaulden ended, she announced on her social media profiles that she was pregnant with her ex-boyfriend’s child and wanted to raise it as a single parent. Her determination to become a mother despite a doomed relationship and young age made fans even more curious about her life. Jania then decided to become a YouTuber, so that she could connect with her fans more regularly. She joined the video-sharing site in October 2018 and soon started posting vlogs, sharing tidbits of her everyday life. Her first video was a Q & A (question and answer) titled ‘Q&A | AM I HAVING A BOY OR GIRL??,’ which attracted over 700,000 views. After its success, she started posting more regularly and started participating in trendy YouTube challenges to popularize her channel. Her most popular videos on the channel are ‘The End!’ with over 600k views, ‘Lyric Prank on My Crush/Epic Fail’ and ‘I Took My Friend’s Boyfriend Prank!’.
