If the number of videos viewed on a social media site was translated into pounds, a St Albans teen would be a millionaire by now.

YouTube videos featuring singing by Dylan Musanhu, 18, (pictured) of London Colney, have racked up over one million views.

Back in 2012, a year after moving here from South Africa, the Marlborough Science Academy pupil began rapping and singing his version of a range of hits.

Two years later, the teen’s most popular video is Chiraq by Nicki Minaj featuring Lil Herb, which has attracted over 170,000 views, while his version of Loyal by Chris Brown with Lil Wayne, has had over 140,000 views.

He said: “I’m surprised at reaching over one million views on the internet. My friends are shocked. I’m going to keep doing the videos, because it is something I love doing.”
