The Island Boys, who burst to fame after being mocked on TikTok, were booed at their first Miami show at Club Liv. You can watch the video below.
The fact the Island Boys – who are freestyle rappers named Flyysoulja and Kodiyakredd – were booed at all went viral on… of, course….TikTok. They appeared at Club Liv, and it didn’t go so well according to this video:
Don’t feel sorry for the Island Boys. They went viral in the first place because lots of people think they can’t sing. It became a joke. But just as many people wrote on social media that they can’t get the rappers’ signature line, “I’m an island boy…” out of their heads.
You can watch the much mocked and shared rap song later in this article. It shows the two island boy twins from Florida rapping off key in a pool or hot tub. According to All HipHop, their real names are Franky and Alex Venegas.

The Island Boys Are ‘Full Cuban,’ Their Mother Says
People speculated on which state they’re from (Florida). In one video on YouTube, flyysoulja called his mother on the phone.
He asked her to confirm his ethnicity, revealing that he’s Hispanic. She told him that he was born in America but that both of his parents were born in Cuba. Asked to give his race, she described him as “full Cuban” in that video.
What are the real names of flyysoulja and kodiyakredd? A person who says he knows them outed them as Alex and Frankie in a video (be forewarned that the language is disturbing and very graphic.) Multiple sites claim flyysoulja’s real name is Alex Venegas. There is a 20-year-old Alex Venegas who lives in Florida and is tied to a Frank Venegas in public records.
