Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s son Moroccan charmed many hearts after attempting to get his superstar mother to greet a fan on TikTok.
Recently, the confident 9-year-old bonded with fans over the popular social media platform and one of them made a daring request. Moroccan responded:
"Get my mom to react? Of course, I can do that!"

With the video still streaming, the boy made his way to where his mother was. In a darkened room, he asked his mother if she could say hi to his fan.
But the "Through the Rain" diva, whose face was not shown, was not so keen. She can be heard telling her son: "Tell her I’m on a business call."
The twins turned 9 last April 30, and their parents threw a virtual party for them while in quarantine.
Instagram users admired Moroccan for being articulate and for respecting his mother’s privacy, with one fan saying he acted like a grown man.
The child, however, has appeared to be lying low on TikTok after his video went viral. But before his TikTok timeout, he chided a follower who gave him an unsolicited advice.
The follower urged other followers to stop asking Moroccan personal questions. But this didn’t sit well with Moroccan, who told the follower to mind his own business.

He went on to say that he likes replying to comments and questions on his TikTok, and that the fan should not worry about him.
A year ago, Carey remarked about her not allowing her children yet to go on TikTok. Although she revealed that the twins had seen many teens doing the "Obsessed" challenge, using her 2009 song.
Clearly, Moroccan is not new to the limelight. He and his twin sister, Monroe, are often seen with the "We Belong Together" singer at star-studded gatherings.
According to a source of HollywoodLife, Carey and her ex Cannon are lucky to have such "well rounded, kind kids" who are also getting good grades in school.
The twins turned 9 last April 30, and their parents threw a virtual party for them while in quarantine, complete with custom T-shirts that read, "Roc and Roe’s Virtual Birthday Kit."
Cannon, who split from Carey in 2016, paid a tribute to his children with a note calling the twins the "greatest gifts" any father could have.
Carey has gone a long way from being an 18-year-old restaurant hostess living in a poor neighborhood in Long Island, New York.
She rose to stardom with the release of her eponymous album in 1990, after signing to Sony Music. She is considered among the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 200 million records.
