Let’s face it, we have the internet to thank for blessing us with so many awesome memes like this.

Every meme definitely has a back story and the one of this little boy- Jake will make you smile.

Jake Amo who is only 4 was captured in this viral photo, writing pensively at a local creative workshop which was organised in his village of Asempanaye, Koforidua, in Ghana.

Solomon Adufah, the US-based Ghanaian artist, who put the workshop together described Jake as a gentle and quiet little boy on his Instagram page. But little did he know how viral the picture would go.

On top of being famous, a trust fund for Jake’s education/welfare is already in the works! Yass!

So next time your parents accuse you of ‘always pressing your phone’, just remind them of Jake, Olajumoke and other amazing people that became internet sensations.
