Lil Nas X’s rise to fame is something that should be studied in colleges and universities across the world, on the use and impact of social media on independent artistes. The 20 year old’s sheer determination to succeed despite homophobia, racism and discrimination he faced from the country music world is worthy of note. His song Old Town Road, stayed at No 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 19 weeks, the first time it ever happened since the charts started in 1958.
