Franky and Alex Venegas were born on July 16, 2001, in South Florida, United States. The twins have Cuban parents. Sadly, their father died of a heart attack in 2007, and their mother raised them independently.
Being a single parent proved to be incredibly hard. From a young age, the twins frequently misbehaved. They even faced detention in juvenile jail due to multiple counts of burglaries, assaults, and robberies.
During their time in jail, Alex Venegas noticed that a lot of inmates were amateur rappers. This sparked the twins’ interest in rap, and since then, they’ve straightened up their ways and focused on their musical journey.
Franky Venegas started his TikTok account Kodiyakkred in 2019. He frequently posted Tiktok videos and promoted his music. Prior to their fame, Kodiyakredd released some music, including Real Right, Smoke, and 9ine.
The Island boys first got popular due to a viral Tiktok video of them freestyling in a swimming pool. This clip went viral on Tiktok with over 20 million views. Twitter users even posted multiple memes from the clip and started calling the pair ‘The Island Boys.’
Then, the twins turned the viral video into a full song called “I’m an Island Boy” and even made a music video.
Since then, the brothers took the stage names Kodiyakredd and Flyysoulja. The song got the attention of producer Kodak Black, who offered to sign a record deal with the Tiktok stars, which they refused.
The Island Boys are definitely quite popular on the internet, particularly Tiktok. Unfortunately, Kodiyakredd’s Tiktok account recently got banned.
Yet only in a few months, Kodiyakredd gained over 700,000 followers on his new Tiktok account, reddfourtimes. On the other hand, the official Tiktok account of Flyysoulja has over 7 million followers on Tiktok.
The twin brothers also have a Youtube channel called Big Bag Ent, where they post their new music videos and vlogs. As of May 2023, the channel has over 200,000 subscribers.
The duo also has a Cameo account where fans can make personal video requests.
The Tiktok duo have been caught up in many rivalries and controversies just in the past year. They’ve gotten in a fight with fellow Tiktoker Bryce Hall. They’ve even caught the attention of Kevin Hart and Snoop Dogg who watched their viral Tiktok video on their show “2021 and Done.”
The Island Boys made multiple headlines when they walked out of Logan Paul’s podcast, Impulsive. The twins stormed out of the show as they got in a fight with George Janko, host of Impaulsive.
The actor suggested that the twins’ rap career was short-lived and that they wouldn’t really make successful rap stars. Luckily, they have an expensive jewelry collection to fall back on.
The Island Boys seemed upset by the comments, with one of them responding that they don’t need financial advice from someone who makes less money than them. Then, they stormed off.
Fans of Impaulsive deemed The Island Boys’ behavior as unprofessional. However, Logan Paul doesn’t seem to agree with the fans. He deemed Janko’s behavior disrespectful and eventually fired him from the podcast.
Andrew James Thomas
The Venegas twins also got caught up in controversy when their childhood friend, Andrew James Thomas, was suspected of murder. Thomas hid in the Tiktokers’ home, which led the police to raid their house in order to catch the murder suspect.
However, the duo wasn’t a part of any criminal activities. Thomas was just crashing at their house in an effort to evade the police.
Alex Venegas, or Kodiyakredd, was present at the arrest scene. He was incredibly shocked and actually cried once he realized the seriousness of the crime his childhood friend had committed.
