Meet Viral Sensation Steven Barbosa This Weekend at His First Official Lafayette Meet & Greet
After going viral worldwide for the last two months, Steven Barbosa is finally getting a chance to meet fans from his hometown of Lafayette.
There was nothing particularly special or intentional about the video clip of Barbosa as he bopped along to Kevin Gates' 2013 banger 'Thinking With My ...." but the vibey visual shot by John Weatherall has amassed tens of millions of views—and that doesn't even count the countless millions of views when it comes to all the parodies, memes, and reposts.
Barbosa has been given a slew of nicknames—my favorite being "somebody's daddy"—and has garnered tens of thousands of new followers on social media since going viral in early March.
He's traveled as far as Indiana to do paid appearances, but this weekend will be the first official meet-and-greet opportunity for Barbosa to link up with fans in his hometown.
The viral sensation made the announcement in a video via his official Instagram page.
This Saturday (April 16) at Hippietown USA (3212 Johnston Street) between 12p-5p fans will have a chance to come by and meet Barbosa, snap a photo, and hang out as there will be plenty of other activities going on as well as food and music on site.
We'll be broadcasting live, so join us out there as we vibe with Steven and the crew at Hippietown USA along with the promoter for the upcoming Kevin Gates concert happening on April 30th at the Lafayette CAJUNDOME.
Kevin Gates' song 'Thinking With My ...." has seen bigger chart success over the last two months due to Weatherall and Barbosa's video than it did when it was released in 2013—so much so, that it has been re-released by the record label as a single due to its chart-topping success on Tiktok.
It will definitely be a special night when Gates makes a stop in Barbosa's hometown of Lafayette and one lucky person will win two "all-access" tickets to the Kevin Gates concert co-starring Jeezy and Toosii by following the instructions in the post below.
Stop by Hippietown USA this Saturday between 12p-5p and we'll see you there.
