iShowSpeed, a die-hard fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and prominent American YouTuber, is well-known in the football community for his unwavering admiration for Ronaldo and often showcasing the iconic siuuu celebration in unconventional locations, Newspremises understands.
At the age of 18, he enjoys a lifestyle that many aspire to, globetrotting, mingling with influential sports figures, and attending prestigious events, including the 2022 FIFA World Cup final and the 2023 Ballon d’Or Awards.
During his recent visit to Brazil, iShowSpeed explored various locations, including the residence of soccer legend Ronaldo Nazario, where he received a tour of the trophy room.
In a humorous encounter with the Real Valladolid president, captured in a video on his X page, he playfully questioned whether he was Cristiano’s father due to their shared name, persistently rejecting El Fenomeno’s attempts to convince him otherwise.
While granted the privilege of handling one of Ronaldo’s Ballon d’Or trophies, Watkins Jr. engaged in a lighthearted exchange with the former Barcelona star, disputing Messi’s possession of similar accolades.
Dismissing Messi as short and subpar, he reiterated his belief in Ronaldo’s superiority, playfully urging the 2002 world champion to support his son.
Additionally, during a visit to rapper MC Davi, iShowSpeed took the opportunity to insult Messi while freestyling to one of the artist’s songs, leading to the clip going viral on social media, drawing both condemnation and support from fans.
