Kim Kardashian broke the Internet. Beyoncé shut it down. But Will Smith brought it back to life the day he joined Instagram.
While the social media platform launched back in 2018, it wasn’t until one fateful day in December 2017 that the Fresh Prince decided to post his first IG picture. It’s been on ever since.
The charismatic super star let fans into his childhood when he shared a baby photo that required no filters. Approximately seven IG posts later, he had everyone hooked, especially when he showed just how proud he is to be a father by uploading a split image Jaden and himself in similar poses at two different events.
Will then reminded his fans and binge watchers everywhere to keep watching Netflix (before the whole Mo’Nique boycott went down).
But it isn’t just his wit and family pics that has everyone following Smith—it’s his life advice. From inspirational posts laced with comedic timing, to his musings on what it takes to make a marriage last, Smith’s insight never comes f as preachy, which people obviously relate to. Since joining in December, his followers have swelled to 8.9 million.
Bottom line? There are many reasons to love Will Smith’s Instagram— nine major keys to be exact.
