Meet, Nihal Raj a.k.a. Kicha, a six-year-old food blogger based in India.
He has his own YouTube channel. The little chef’s channel KichaTubeHD started in 2015. Kicha is so popular that Facebook paid him a whopping $2,000 for the rights to mango ice cream video.
In May, his father was contacted by a US-based casting agency which makes videos for Facebook, which then led to a $2,000 deal in which Facebook acquired the non-exclusive rights to a video of Kicha making Mickey Mouse mango ice cream.
In most of his videos Kicha demonstrates simple recipes of desserts that involve minimal cooking. “He isn’t a professional,” his father Rajagopal V. Krishnan told Mashable. After a brief “master class” given by his mom, Kicha prepares a dish his own way.
The Mickey Mouse mango ice cream video has become Kicha’s main hit, which reached almost 60,000 views.
