May 30 2018

A PUPIL at Bromley Heath Primary School in Downend has become an internet sensation after his dad posted a video of him singing reggae tunes.

Alfie Haile, 10, was filmed singing to the songs of artist Da Fuchaman by dad Matt who then uploaded it to Instagram.

The video went viral and has now been viewed nearly five million times with artists and reggae fans sharing the video on social media platforms.

The video then came to the attention of Da Fuchaman who returned from Jamaica to re-record the track with Alfie and film an official video set in Bristol.

The song, So Much Love, has been storming up the charts after thousands of people bought the song on iTunes, making Alfie an overnight sensation.

The youngster, who is a keen boxer, training at Paddy John's gym in Kingswood, has already been offered sponsorship deals and has even done a spot of modelling. He has also been to London with his dad to meet with record producers.

Alfie, who has become firm friends with Da Fuchaman, has even got to meet his boxing heroes Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.
