Of course, he got there with a lot of help from his family: Lin Dough, real name Lindokuhle Sthole, is Valdo’s father. A musician and dancer, Lin Dough was part of a music group called Teddy signed under DJ Cleo’s record label.  He and Valdo love to perform together.

The father-and-son duo have won many hearts on social media because of their videos on social media and have become father-and-son goals. The two also have their own YouTube channel which has more than 25 000 subscribers.

Speaking on the popularity they’ve gained Lin Dough said “It started with one video which went viral and fans just wanted more and more”.

South Africans took to social media to congratulate Valdo and that saw him trend at number 3 on Twitter following the announcement of his launch and eventually, he topped the Twitter trends list.
