First time I saw the funny dancing video "Go Mufasa" by Jeff Obeng. Then it made me think, if Jeff Obeng is one of the content creators who is able to entertain many people on social media.
Mufasa is a character and behind the character is Jeff Obeng. Though he was born to Ghanaian parents, he was actually born in the Bronx, United States of America. Jeff Obeng is a content creator, entertainer and actor based in the DMV. He is most known for his viral skits featuring his main character Mufasa, who is always ready to kick off the weekend with a celebratory dance.
Known for his viral skits as "Mufasa", Obeng brings positive energy to the digital world through his kick-ass dance moves — particularly his popular "Go Mufasa" dance move that was featured in Da Baby’s music video for Grammy-nominated "Bop."
Jeff Obeng's video career began in 2018. When he planned on making new content for YouTube with a friend. When his friend didn't show up to film, he made the video himself, but decided to post it on Instagram instead.
That first video received great reception so he ran with the momentum and kept making new content. Mufasa freestyles most of his dances, and with the help of his "hypeman", he continues to make fun new content for his million followers.
Mufasa and Hypeman shot to global fame after they started a trend on social media. His infectious smile and dance moves puts anyone in a better mood. His videos and vibes have become a remedy for millions as of late, delivering absurd elation and necessary positivity.
What started off as a way to pass time and make people laugh has brought people together worldwide. And as the number of people tuning in to catch Mufasa’s latest dance moves continues to grow, his mission remains the same: to uplift as many people as possible.
What makes him so proud of all of this is that he is able to bring joy to people in their darkest moments. He has heard multiple times that "his videos the cure to depression" is nothing short of a blessing to him.
For Jeff Obeng, what sets him apart from others are two things, his Mufusa character wears the same vibrant clothes in all of his skits and also most importantly, The positive energy/great vibes that the character gives off to anyone who watches his videos.
