Internet sensation John Philip Bughaw, better known as “Balang”, caught the attention of award-winning American rapper Snoop Dogg.

On his Instagram account, Snoop Dogg reposted a video of the youngster showing his energetic Zumba moves. His post received over 200 thousand views and counting.

According to an article published by GMA News Online, Balang thanked Snoop Dogg for reposting his video.

This is not the first time that an international artist took notice of Balang.

In fact, because of his dance videos on Youtube, he graced the stage of the award-winning daytime show of Ellen DeGeneres, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” three times.

The first time he was invited to perform on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” was May last year.

With interpreter Danica Doma, Balang told Ellen he is excited to be in the United States of America because of the chocolates. He shared he loves chocolates but he is prone to a toothache so he always brushes his teeth after eating.

The bubbly child said he wants to be a Zumba instructor when he grows up. As for his dancing moves, he told Ellen whenever he watches television and hears music, he can’t stop himself from dancing.

Ellen and her studio audience were visibly impressed as Balang showed off his moves while also mouthing the lyrics of the song “Bang Bang”.

She exclaimed, “That was so entertaining! I could have watched that for another hour.“

As a reward for his performance, Ellen gave Balang lots of chocolate.

Last November, Balang appeared on the show for the second time and participated in a dance-off with the show’s DJ, tWitch. He was given a stationary bike as a gift.

The third time he was invited to the show was last February. Ellen noticed that he sported a different look than his previous appearances. Instead of dress shirts and suspenders, he wore a sleeveless animal print top.

Balang said his new look was inspired by pop sensation Justin Bieber, who had also praised Balang’s dance cover of his hit song “Sorry”.
