The Ikorodu Bois gained notoriety for remaking scenes from famous music videos and Hollywood films.
Months ago, the boys caught the attention of American actor, Will Smith, after they recreated the Bad Boys Forever trailer.
Actor, Dwayne Johnson, and basketball player, Lebron James, have also reached out to the boys in recent times.
The group is made up of 15-year-old Muiz Sanni, 10-year-old Malik Sanni and 13-year-old Fawas Aina.
Their 23-year-old brother, Babatunde Sanni, manages and edits the videos.
