Who is Bryan Silva? Wiki Bio
Bryan Silva was born in Florida USA on 2 January 1991, so his zodiac sign is Capricorn and he holds American nationality. He is a rapper and a social media personality, who gained recognition while he was active on the Vine platform, and mostly became popular thanks to his “Gratata” vine.
Early life and education
Bryan was raised with older brother named Phillip in Florida, by his father who is a salesman and his mother who is a housewife.
He is Caucasian and follows the Christian religion. Bryan attended a high school in his hometown, and ended up in jail during his teenage years for assault and breaking and entering, while he also attacked his high school principal. While in jail, he began working out as he had much time to kill, and after his release, he started going to the gym, and focused on his career on the internet rather than pursuing a college degree. He also still managed to matriculate from high school.
Bryan first launched his career on the former Vine platform, which was used for uploading six-second long funny and comic videos, including lip syncing and other forms of clips. He became popular on the platform after he uploaded his “Gratata” video, which featured him yelling ‘Gratata” while showing off his muscles.
Wine was officially launched in 2013, and although it counted more than 200 million users by the end of 2015, Twitter had purchased Vine, and decided to shut it down in 2017 – its successor is TikTok.
Bryan did not choose to move to TikTok and start another career there, but rather decided to become a rap star, and so focused on his career as a rapper. Some of his first notable songs were released in 2014, entitled “Tony”, “Scary Site”, and “Money and Finesse”, while the three which became more popular are “Swag Like Bryan”, “She Call”, and “Swaggin”.
Bryan uploaded his songs onto the Soundcloud music platform, and later stated in an interview that it was his fans’ support that kept him motivated to continue to make music. He released “Trappin”, “Spraying”, and “Foreign” among other songs in 2015, and a single song in 2016 entitled “My City”.
In 2018, he released “Flex OMG Year” and “Gratata”, the song which is about the vine that made him popular.
Bryan was a YouTuber, but stopped uploading videos onto his eponymous channel on 9 August 2015 – it still counts 12 videos but only 138 views. He has over 50,000 followers on his Twitter account, while he mostly tweets about funny things and tells jokes. His Instagram account was recently banned for uploading inappropriate content – he had over 500,000 followers and often uploaded pictures of his cat named Gucci. He has also created an account just for his cat, which is run by him and his wife.
Love life. Dating girlfriend or gay?
There were rumors circulating the internet that the former Vine star is gay, which began after he talked about spending time in prison which is when most people joked about what happens with gay men in jail. To add to that, many people stated that Bryan does have an appearance of a gay man, and that he might be exercising just to hide that.
Bryan has not addressed the rumors but it is known that the ex-Viner is married to his long-term girlfriend who goes by the name Lissy Silva on her Instagram account – she is an internet personality and an Instagram model.
The two started dating in 2015 and married in 2017. Both of them often upload pictures of themselves together onto their Instagram accounts while, and of their everyday lives, thus allowing their fans to take a glimpse at their personal lives. The two are currently living in Illinois, Florida; they don’t have any children.
Going to jail again
In 2016, Bryan announced on his accounts on social media networks that he was going to spend more than a year in prison, after he pleaded guilty to firearms charges. In January 2016, Bryan was involved in an incident with the Charlottesville police who found a firearm in his possession, which he apparently pointed at them.
His brother Phillip was brought to the court when he talked about Bryan and explained how he is indeed a good person and that he has matured stating he is not really the ‘bad guy’ he represents himself to be on the internet. Bryan was charged nevertheless and the judge stated how he ‘hopes young people on the internet are not looking up to him as their role model’.
Bryan was also once arrested for putting a gun to his girlfriend’s head.
Hobbies and other interests
Bryan enjoys representing himself as a ‘bad guy’ on the internet, which is why he has many tattoos inked onto his skin, and why he often talks and sings about crime, gangs, and violating the law. He has several training sessions at the gym each week, as he believes it’s important for a man to have muscles and be ‘macho’. He admits he is addicted to social media networks, and could not imagine living without them.
Bryan enjoys attending parties and going to nightclubs with his wife. He is very keen on fast cars, and is the owner of an expensive BMW.
