Known on social networks for his quirky and funny content, Kimo defines himself above all as a committed content creator. At the head of a community of more than 250 followers, he accumulates millions of views on social networks every month.

“I use my notoriety to carry out concrete actions that can do good for people,” he confides to Entrevue. Very committed to access to the law and legal information, Kimo is now taking up a new cause that has “been close to his heart for a long time”: disability.

Very close to his fans with whom he says he interacts regularly, he was contacted by one of them who, a few months ago, made him aware of the case of Adlene, a young 22-year-old Algerian with a disability. and paraplegia. Touched by this testimony, the influencer immediately jumped on a plane to go to the other side of the Mediterranean to meet Adlene, with whom he filmed his adventures for several days while introducing him to his community.

Sensitive to the emerging bond between Adlene and Kimo, the public flooded social networks with messages of love and support for Adelene. It was at this moment that Kimo took the initiative to very successfully launch an online fundraiser for the young man with disabilities.

The thousands of euros raised made it possible to purchase an electric wheelchair, a support belt, a mattress, an orthopedic cushion, an adapted bed, an air conditioner as well as a remote-controlled luminaire… Thus offering Adene and those close to him more comfort and greater autonomy.

Building on this success, Kimo announced on Snapchat that new solidarity actions would soon take place on its networks.
