Ukulele Boy

Who Is Ukulele Boy And Why Is He A You Tube Hit?This kid has become a huge you tube sensation (like a lot of people these days) and one of his videos has reached a staggering 35 million hits. He plays the Ukulele amazingly and is not shy about singing. But who is he?

This little boys name is Makoto and he speaks Japanese and is only 5 years old and at this age is already an excellent Ukulele player and a bright future lies ahead. He started playing the Ukulele in 2008 and learned it from watching a TV programme at Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai (NHK) or Japan Broadcasting Corporation that was broadcasting for around 3 months. We love all his videos here on our site.

He became a huge hit after playing I’m Yours by Jason Mraz and was an instant hit. He has also played While My Guitar Gently Weeps by George Harrison and and a Beatles tune Obladi Oblada as well as one of his own, very cute yet already very talented, check out these amazing videos, enjoy!!
