Online viral sensation the ‘Island Boys’ had a rough outing for their first concert in Miami, getting booed off the stage during the performance.
The ‘Tik Tok’ stars took the internet by storm in the past few months, gaining a huge cult following over curiosity about their background, and crazy look. The ‘Island Boys’ are big enough, they scored a performance at the hottest nightclub in Florida — LIV — where they took the stage together to drop a few bars.
Unfortunately, it didn’t go as expected, and a flood of boos was heard in the crowd as the twin brother duo dropped their lines. In this case, it appears some things are just better left on the internet.
The fraternal twin brothers are known as Flyysoulja and Kodiyakredd and gained national recognition after posting a freestyle video of themselves rapping in a jacuzzi. If you haven’t seen them yet, the boys both sport a bright blonde hairdo that is teased to stand straight up like Side Show Bob from ‘The Simpsons.’
‘Island Boys’ Suffer Rough First Outing On Stage In Miami, Florida
In their defense, the brothers came ready to go, including matching red vests and shoes, and hair on point. The two artists, real names Franky and Alex Venegas, don’t seem fazed by the misstep and are continuing to give their huge social media audience more of what they want — “Island Boys!” At this point, the twins have over 10.5 MILLION views on ‘TikTok’ for their rap videos.
To be fair, the rap duo attempted to perform their hit record in a crowded nightclub with no background beat. In other words, they were just standing on the stage saying, “I’m an Island Boy,” so you can imagine the crowd getting a little frustrated to get back to the loud music. Maybe next time they will ad some music to the background of their freestyle.

The boys have endured several issues since becoming an overnight social media success. The first was that they were guilty of cultural appropriation by having a specific type of hair and talking a certain way. The brothers countered the argument by inviting their mother to an interview who confirmed the twins are actually Cuban and live in Florida.
Interestingly, the kids do have a bit of street credit too, after internet sleuths exposed both of their lengthy criminal records. Both Flyysoulja and Kodiyakredd spent time in Juvenile Hall including one stint for over two years. Mugshots of the two rappers have been posted online, along with police reports about the incidents. In most cases, the brothers were still in their teens.
You Will Never Believe What They Use To Get Their Hair To Stand Up!
InstagramThe best part, the brother recently answered one of the burning questions about their look — and it will surprise you. So, exactly how do they get their hair to stand up like that?!
A crochet needle. That’s right, the ‘Island Boys’ use a crochet needle to tease their hair to stand straight up.
Now, back to TikTok!
