Rise to Fame
The oldest picture that Mathew has on his Instagram handle was uploaded on March 10, 2017. It is a picture of Mathew himself as he stares away from the camera. Behind him, in the distant, the letter Z is written on a fence. Since he began gaining popularity on social media, his presumably first post on Instagram has drawn a significant amount of attention. On August 7, 2017, he posted a picture of his mother with the caption that reads, “bowling with mom”. Most of the early uploads were selfies, some of which have Snapchat filters added on them.
On January 23, 2019, he celebrated reaching a hundred thousand subscribers by posting several pictures of himself with a large 100k balloon. On the following day, he uploaded some modelling photographs taken on a railway track. On 9 February, he posted a picture in which he can be seen with four of his friends, Marc Gomez, Ethan DeLuna, Jr, and David Anthony Delgado. Marc and Jr also appeared in one of Mathew’s recent videos, dancing to Dababy’s ‘Suge’.
Mathew began posting on his secondary account on February 2, 2019. On 4 February, he posted a video comprised of three comedy skits. This was his first venture into making this kind of a video. Marc, Jr, and Ethan also make appearances alongside a friend named Damien Isaiah Nunez. While there are plenty of selfies posted on this account as well, it has a fair number of pictures featuring his friends.
On TikTok, while Mathew is not a crowned user, he has tens of thousands of fans and over a hundred thousand hearts. He employs many of the typical methods of making a TikTok video, including moving the camera certain ways while lip-syncing to popular songs. He has performed to the music of artists like Sueco The Child, DJ Rell, Rick Ross, and Riton & Kah-Lo.
Mathew set up his YouTube channel on January 17, 2019, and has just over a thousand subscribers on it. On 19 February, he posted the first and only video on the channel, titled ‘wassup guys posting soon’. It is a two-second-long clip, in which Mathew, dressed in a hoodie, pouts at the camera.
