A few years ago Welvin Da Great, real name Welvin Harris, was one of the biggest social media stars in the world. Now MTO News has learned Welvin’s fame is gone, and so is his money. And now people are saying that the former star is homeless.
Welvin was Instagram star who rose to prominence for his “Deez Nuts” comedy videos. At his height, Welvin had more than 2,000,000 followers on Instagram and got paid thousands to appear at parties.
But social media money can dry up quickly – and that’s exactly what happened to Welvin.
Yesterday a Los Angeles man spotted Welvin at a subway station in Los Angeles. It was the station closest to skid row, the largest homeless embankment in America and arguably the western world.
As soon as the video was released, people immediately began speculating that Welvin is homeless. MTO News has not been able to independently verify whether or not the former IG star is homeless, but does not appear to be doing well at all.
Here’s video of a man pulling up on the former social media star inside a Los Angeles subway station.
