Niko B’s Guide To Going Viral From Your Bedroom

Niko B loves to separate himself from all the known music genres because the British viral sensation created his own rap style. His single “Who’s That What’s That” has been streamed almost 25 million times and made him one of the rising stars of the year. Just for you, he made a nine-steps-counting guide to explain to you how you can become a viral sensation from the comfort of your bedroom.

1. Do it yourself

No excuses. I wanted to print onto jeans but didn’t have the equipment, so I did my research, bought some screenprinting gear for cheap, and then got my dad to make me a wooden thing to print the jeans on.

Do it yourself

2. Notebooks and drawing ideas

Get notebooks and, whenever you get a minute on the train or bus, just draw or write ideas. It’s fun to just make things that didn’t exist five minutes ago. I like to draw logos or listen to my music and write down what I visualize the music video to be. Then when I look through the books, I get inspired.

3. YouTube tutorials and imagination

All you need to conquer the world is YouTube tutorials and imagination.

4. Appreciate everyone’s work

Someone else’s success doesn’t mean your failure, let it inspire and motivate you. Also, don’t eat cheese before bed. Never compare yourself.

5. No excuses. Just do it!

If you have an idea, more good things will happen if you do it than if you don’t do it.

No excuses. Just do it!

6. Go for bike rides

Get the creative juices flowing and get some time to yourself. Take a break every now and then to clear your mind.

7. Imagine being 50

Imagine being 50 years old and looking back at all the shit you didn’t do.

8. Make your bed every morning

Because no matter how bad your day is you’ll always come home to a freshly made bed.

9. At the end of each day, write down 5 wins

Even if it’s that you made a sandwich. Write it down before you go to sleep every night.
