Birth Place

Tez Mengestu is a close friend of the Grier brothers Nash and Hayes, two of the most popular personalities on Vine having a combined fan base of 12 million. Though not fully confirmed, some reports suggest that Tez, Nash and Hayes went to the same Charlotte Mecklenberg School in the Davidson-Charlotte area in North Carolina. With Tez often posting photographs and videos of himself with Nash, who is the most followed personality on Vine, and commenting on Nash’s activities and whereabouts, he too has become well-known. Tez himself has a following of nearly 400,000 followers on Instagram where fans find his photographs and videos “hilarious”. Tez has become popular enough on social media networks to get invited on a 18 city tour of social media stars organized by DigiTour, an event management company and successor of MagCon (short for Meet and Greet Convention), a company that is credited with producing the world’s first show of social media stars. The tour organized in the spring and summer of 2015 showcased seven social media stars among whom Tez was the only person of colour. The tour managed to rake in revenues of about $20 million. In the same year, Tez was featured in another DigiTour of several Latin American countries. Tez is managed by 26MGMT which specializes in helping social media celebrities to crossover into mainstream entertainment. CATCH ME HARLEM SHAKIN IN THE PARTY.

The Meteoric Rise To Stardom

Tez is primarily known for videos of his antics on Instagram which admirers find amusing and attractive. According to DigiTour’s 30-year-old CEO Meridith Valiando Rojas, the main talent of social media stars such as Tez is their ability to relate to their audience. “They’re the coolest people you know, and they happen to have 5 million friends,” says Rojas. Mengestu’s popularity on Instagram has also begun to fetch him modeling assignments. Modeling scout Nikki Sheldon explains that these days when brands are searching for models they look for people who have high visibility and following on social media networks. Hence, although Tez is not much of a performer – he neither sings, dances nor does anything noteworthy at all – youngsters, especially girls, find him “cool to hang out with” and befriend him on social media channels. While most people would be totally at a loss to figure out what they must say or do on social media to attract fans, people like Tez have the uncanny ability to know how to be “cool”. That’s what makes him special. culture | @therealyvngquan A video posted by @tez on Jul 31, 2016 at 1:34pm PDT
