He is Bancho, Fameer, a father, a mother, an uncle and what not.
A brand in himself and the man who we can learn a lot from, this man is a social celebrity. BB, as his fans call him, this celebrity has a large following and uses his fame to teach people just the right things and that too at the right time.
He is none other than Bhuvan Bam.
I am an avid follower of this man, and with every new video that he uploads, my love for him as a fan has grown even more.
Here are some reasons that make Bhuvan Bam more than just a YouTube sensation:
In most of his videos, Bhuvan is seen doing things that reminds us of the middle-class sensitive guy that he is.This has often made me feel that he is true to his roots. The perfect example of this is the modesty with which he portrays the characters in his gigs. There's a mama from Indore, a chacha from Punjab and what not.
Off-late Bam has been a part of YT Fan Fests where he has represented not only India but other countries as well. He delivers talks and has really developed a brand for himself which is more than just his YouTube Channel. His growth and active participation is a sign that he is a forward-looking person who always wishes to learn and do more.
I think having a million followers on social media platforms instills a great sense of responsibility in an individual, and to keep them intact and satisfied needs proper strategic planning. BB has surely broken the code of relatability and this has made people stick to his content.
He is a musician, singer, writer and a comedian. One man who does all of this and then acts in his videos, edits it and uploads them on time. Man, he is a team in himself.
Be it his motivational talks at TEDx or live videos where he shares his thoughts, BB has always managed to deliver the right message at right time. His TED Talk highlighted the importance of originality in whatever we do, and I think that is the best advice that any content creator has ever given to his fans/followers.
One of my colleagues encountered an incident with BB where he was all excited to meet the social media celebrity, but the man refused to share his success story. Bam wanted to be treated like any another guy and answer questions about his likes and dislikes instead.
BB's live videos where he asks his fans to simply listen to the blissful music that he plays is goals. One of the reasons why I personally follow him on Instagram is his live videos.
Be it body shaming, racism or women safety you will see BB supporting all of these causes on social media and this is something that makes him stand apart from the rest.
When it comes to collaborations or promoting his fellow YouTuber friends, he has never shied away from doing that, and this shows that he believes in collaborative growth.
