Zoie Fenty better known to his fans as GotDamnZo is an American comedian and internet personality. The comedy videos he posts on YouTube take most of the credit for the success and recognition he enjoys today. Along with the video-sharing app, his activities on other social media fronts such as YouNow and Instagram and previously on Vine where he enjoyed a large following, always create a smile on the faces of his fans.

Besides his internet activities, there are so many mouth-watering facts to learn about the content creating phenomenon. He shares the same last name with the Barbadian singer and actress, Rihanna, born as Robyn Fenty and was some time ago, rumored to be gay. Find out if they share any familial relationship and his orientation.

GotDamnZo Biography, Age

Of Black ethnicity, Zoie Fenty was born on the 31st day of May 1991, in California but he would later live in Atlanta, Georgia. Zoie has not been generous with details about his early life or educational background, but judging from his activities online, it could be well assumed that he is educated.

In October 2013, he joined the YouTube community and began creating contents on his channel named GotDamnZo. His Vine career took off the following year and he soon earned a huge following on both platforms for his original videos series including The Life of T.T. (his self-made woman character), Drama Alert, and Dats Tha Story. His videos are always packed with comedy scenes that usually leaves a smile on his fans’ faces.

GotDamnZo has amassed over 1.8 million subscribers on YouTube and racked up more than 1.2 billion loops on the now-defunct app, Vine. He got famous on Vine for the same reason he became known on YouTube, his life moments sandwiched between his signature sassiness and hilarious opinions with funny gestures and postures. Apart from the crazy videos that go from fun vlogs to silly challenges and collaborations which often leaves his fans crazy with laughter, they are also enamored of him for his frequent interactions with them through live streams.

Talking about live streams, GotDamnZo is incredibly famous on YouNow as well. Outside social media and content creation, Zoie appeared in the MTV improv comedy show, Wild ‘N Out. He was one of the recurring cast members from Season 11 until Season 12. Moreover, he was the only cast member from Season 11 to join the Wild ‘N Out Tour in 2018.

Family Life

Other than the fact that he was born to parents of African American origin, nothing much is known about the GotDamnZo’s folks. Neither their identity nor their career is available. However, what is known is that they raised him alongside two siblings, a brother and a sister. Unfortunately, their identity is not also known.

His tight lips about his family got us thinking at some point that the internet sensation may be related to Barbadian singer and actress, Rihanna born as Robyn Fenty considering their last name. If that were to be so, either of them would have let us in about that. But as it is, they share no familial relationships. In fact, the only thing they have in common is the entertainment scene and of course, their last names.

Rihanna is the daughter of Monica (née Braithwaite), an accountant and Ronald Fenty, a warehouse supervisor. She was born on February 20, 1988, in Saint Michael, Barbados and has a mixed ethnicity; Afro-Barbadian, Afro-Guyanese and Irish.
