Who is ‘real boss daddy’ on TikTok?

TikTok is fascinated by an influencer who claims to be living a luxury lifestyle.

The user @realbossdaddy has over 56,000 followers on TikTok, where he vlogs from his alleged two-story penthouse with marble surfaces and ornate golden decor. When he’s not at home, the influencer is usually on a yacht. But naturally, his boastful behavior has caused quite a bit of skepticism. People are trying to figure out if he’s being authentic or not. 

Who is @realbossdaddy on TikTok? 

The user @realbossdaddy claims to be a “bada** self-made entrepreneur” who was “banned from Wall Street at 29.” He hasn’t revealed his first or last name on social media. He doesn’t live in the U.S., and his location is unknown. 

Ironically, one of @realbossdaddy’s most popular videos is about “how to spot a $30,000 millionaire.” He claimed such fake millionaires wear brands like Off-White, Supreme, Yeezy, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and “basic” watches like Rolexes. 

“For instance, I’m a real millionaire. My daily wear is an Audemars Piguet royal oak chronograph in solid gold. This is a six-figure watch,” he explained

Much of @realbossdaddy’s content is similarly designed to showcase his alleged wealth. And the feedback on TikTok is largely negative.

“A real millionaire doesn’t go on social media and scream that they are a millionaire,” someone commented

“I’m an actual millionaire, and I don’t care what other people wear,” another said

“Bro just wanted to flex his watch,” a person wrote

In another popular video, the vlogger gave a tour of his penthouse balcony, which he claimed was “paradise” because he lived on one of the nicest private beaches “in the whole world.” 

He did, however, clarify that the property was not in the U.S., adding that he left the country a few years ago. Meanwhile, he said there was “six figures” worth of furniture on his 1,500-square-foot balcony. 

While no one knows if this guy is the real deal or trolling for fun, it appears there’s an audience of curious TikTokers either way.
