Talk about a multi-media dynamo!
JoJo is a social media star with more than 6.5 million followers on Instagram, over 15 million followers on Musical.ly and more than five million subscribers on YouTube. Her music video, "Boomerang,” released in May 2016, currently has over 450 million views and is RIAA-certified platinum.
In addition to being signed to an overall talent agreement with Nickelodeon, JoJo has a global line of consumer products including her signature bows, accessories, apparel, toys, arts and crafts, cosmetics, home goods, bedding and party supplies. In spite of these early successes, JoJo’s priorities remain at the core of her Nebraskan/mid-western upbringing and grounded family values. A true ambassador of anti-bullying, JoJo continues to be a prominent and relatable role model for her countless fans, with the strength and power in her message of celebrating individuality, keeping strong in the face of adversity and never giving up.
