At six, Ivanah already has the world's attention. Her dance videos are fast going viral after she caught the eyes of major celebrities like Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. 


Ivanah is a South African but even that couldn't hinder her getting popular worldwide. Recently, celebrity power couple Will and Jada Smith took to Instagram to repost a video of the little girl dancing. Ivanah has everyone in sheer amazement of how talented she is. 


Jada Pinkett Smith was the first half of the power couple to notice Ivanah, and she excitedly took to her Instagram page to share a video of the little girl dancing on the roadside to "Paga A Bebida Da Bela," a song by DJ BBoy. 

Jada’s caption drips of admiration as she wrote:

"This girl has life figured out! I’m bout to go find me some traffic right now ... and dance!"


In the video, Ivanah can be seen dancing the different moves called out in the song and with great enthusiasm too. The toddler also makes different faces showing just how much fun she's having.

As many have noticed, Ivanah is not only talented, she has a charming charisma, and even that alone has noticeably made her famous. 

It was not too surprising when Will Smith, ever the fun-loving man he is, reposted his wife's post. So far, the video has amassed millions of likes, and many other celebrities like Chris Evans of “Captain America” and stunning singer Lizzo have reposted Ivanah’s video on taking a liking to it. 


About the video, Chris Evans said:

“This kid is cooler than I could ever hope to be.” 

While Lizzo captioned a clip of little Ivanah dancing to her hit single, “Juice” saying:

“Rare footage of me as a child.”


Ivanah’s worldwide recognition is all thanks to her aunt, who made her Instagram and Facebook pages, a place she can frequently share adorable clips of the young beauty doing the things that she loves.

Her Facebook contains numerous videos of Ivanah performing with her dance coach and learning new moves. It, however, remains uncertain whether the coach also helps her master the other routines shown on Instagram. 

Nevertheless, with her sudden rise to fame, the pages have gained more followers, and her videos have made her something of a social media sensation. Getting millions to view your videos on Instagram, you'd agree, is no mean feat, especially for a non-celebrity!

Ivanah is one young little lady to watch out for!
