Kicha has over 9k subscribers on his YouTube channel, KichaTube HD, but he shot to fame when Facebook acquired rights for the young chef’s Mickey Mouse Mango ice cream video for $2,000.
“One day we got a mail from a casting company asking for the rights of Mickey Mouse Mango Ice cream, next we received an agreement from Facebook to acquire the rights,” Krishnan says. “It was shocking for us and, overnight, he become a celebrity. He is the youngest person to sell a video to Facebook.”
It was Kicha who first suggested that his dad film him making popsicles. Rave reviews on Facebook followed, and Kicha then gave his dad the idea to start a YouTube channel. He named it “Kichatube” after himself, inspired by the famous “Evantube”.
