Internet sensation, Brother Nature, whose real name is Kelvin Peña, is in Kenya.
For those who do not know who Brother Nature is, the Pennsylvania native rose to global fame in 2016, when he posted to YouTube a video showing interacting with a deer named Canela.
Canela was “so comfortable” in his company, leading to him filming more videos with the deer and other animals.
Since then Brother Nature, 20, has taken over social media with his adorable animal skits.
He currently has over 2.2 million Instagram followers and over 1.6 million Twitter users subscribing to his posts.
Brother Nature also founded the Everybody Eats Foundation which helps feed underprivileged families in the US and around the world.
EDAILY understands Brother Nature has been in Kenya for seven days now. It remains unclear when he will jet out of the country.
On Thursday, November 22, he posted to his Instagram page a video showing him feeding giraffes at the Giraffe Centre in Karen, Nairobi.
More about him
The 20-year-old on October 21, 2018 received backlash for multiple problematic past tweets; old tweets of his resurfaced in which he allegedly wrote things including “HEIL HITLER” and “when I grow up I wanna be like Chris Brown. So if my girlfriend tried to look through my phone while driving I can choke and punch her”.
Understandably, fans were shocked and disappointed by the tweets.
Brother Nature took to Twitter to apologise over the posts.
He said: “I woke up this morning to seeing my old tweets resurface on my timeline and my heart dropped. I started using Twitter when I was 12 years old, I was very impressionable and I was seeking attention. I am sorry to all the people that I have offended and let down.”
“Everyone changes, everyone learns and everyone makes mistakes. That’s why I spread so much positivity with the platform I was given, to be a role model for the kids. I hope that all of my friends, followers and fans truly understand that I have evolved as a human being and I lead with love.”
