When YouTube announced it would be holding it’s first North American FanFest in Toronto and that Lilly Singh (a.k.a. your girl IISuperwomanII) would be headlining it, we couldn’t have been prouder.
Even with over 5.6 million subscribers, Lilly is very much a Toronto girl through and through. She reps #The6ix so hard that she collaborated with fellow YouTuber/rapper/spoken word artist Humble The Poet once more to write a song about our fair city. Titling it “IVIVI”—that’s 416, Toronto’s area code, in roman numerals—they even managed to film the music video in Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on the Raptors’ home court. She is that serious about Toronto and we hope the world sees that as she jets off on her Unicorn Island World Tour.
ANDPOP’s Simon Mohos got the chance to sit down with our girl, IISuperwomanII, the day she before she took the FanFest Toronto stage. Together they flipped through some of IISuperwomanII’s best Instagram photos as Simon asked Lilly for the stories behind them.
In part 1, they talked about her love for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, what it was like to film the “IVIVI” music video and she even made her first Dubsmash.
In part 2, Lilly talks about impersonating her parents, her favourite videos and how she managed to make a YouTube video with Seth Rogen and James Franco.
