Premium Social Platform WEIV Celebrated Five Star Guard And 2023 Highly Anticipated Men’s Basketball Recruit Mikey Williams Channel Launch During BET Hip Hop Awards Weekend Supported In Part By TROPHECASE & CELSIUS®
WEIV, a premium social platform, announced the launch of the Mikey Williams channel on the ad-free platform with a celebration held during BET Hip Hop Awards weekend poolside at the Kimpton Sylvan Hotel in Atlanta, GA.
Mikey Williams, a 6-1, 175-pound Point Guard from San Diego, CA, is a top-shelf hoops prospect whom ESPN ranks high in the class of 2023, has a huge following on social media, plays to big crowds wherever he goes, and is aiming to play in college rather than going straight to the pros.
The prep phenom, as Mikey Williams is affectionally called, has over 5 million combined Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter followers and was the first American high school basketball player to sign a sneaker deal with a global footwear company. Williams landed a multiyear footwear and apparel endorsement deal with Puma. Being a talent on and off the court as both a basketball standout and a social media influencer provides for the perfect connection with young athletes and fans. Williams is passionate about hoops and culture, and this will be showcased on his WEIV Channel.
WEIV is pronounced like “wave” and spelled “view” backward. WEIV, a “brand-safe space” suitable for all demographics which enables WEIVmakers (celeb-creators) to publish all forms of content, in addition, to fundraise for causes via content to their WEIVriders (subscribers) who follow for free or unlock more for a fee.
The company’s mission is to change the way celebrity creators’ content is viewed and valued, thus empowering them to earn and provide levels of social media engagement. Mikey Williams Channel Launch joins the WEIV 2022 event series, which includes Dave East’s WAVEEAST, a yacht party album experience in Miami, the WEIV Backstage VIP Lounges at Funk Fest in Orlando and at PowerFest in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Proceeds generated from the WEIV event series benefit Half A Million Kids, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming conditions for foster, homeless, and trafficked children.
