Awra Briguela’s winning impersonation of Nicki Minaj on “Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids” has impressed not just the fans here in the Philippines, but also influential sites in the United States, such as Mashable and Teen Vogue.
Mashable first released an article on the child star last night, April 9, and mentioned that they really had to take a double-take to make sure it wasn’t Nicki on stage.
Teen Vogue followed soon after and called Awra’s rendition of “Super Bass” “mind-blowing.”
“The 14-year-old had his Nicki routine down to a science. Everything, from his outfit (with the signature pink wig) down to his facial gestures, was sheer perfection,” Teen Vogue wrote.
Now that he’s been noticed by the international audience, maybe Nicki herself would want to meet him!
