King Nahh (born Nyeeam Hudson) is the 11-year-old motivational speaker on Little Big Shots. After getting teased at a playground for wearing Filas (instead of a more expensive brand like Air Jordans), Hudson recorded a video telling parents to teach their children to be less materialistic. It went viral. Hudson, who is homeschooled by his single dad in Orange, New Jersey, now travels around the world as a motivational speaker, encouraging children to be their best, among other things. (King Nahh speaks about missing his mother, who he doesn’t get to see as much as he would like, in the video below.)
King Nahh is now raising money (so far he’s raised more than $5000 of the $10,000 goal) to complete his book project, We Are All Kings. The money will be used to create an audio and paperback book, to develop an online presence to promote the book and to kick-start a We Are All Kings book tour. Little Big Shots airs Wednesdays at 8pm on NBC.
