Who Is … Stevo The Madman?
Stevo’s Mad Run is based on the real-life London based influencer, Stevo the Madman. He’s an entrepreneur and former professional footballer who played for teams like Leyton Orient and Boreham Wood, but he didn’t become internet famous until he started using Snapchat. His funny videos on movies and dancing have gone viral, making him a Snapchat sensation. With more than 300k followers on social media and a loyal fan base known as ‘Spartans,’ the game based on him has shot to the top of the charts.
