We could hardly find anyone under 30 in the Czech Republic who doesn't know his face. He describes himself as an infludancer addicted to traveling, coffee, jogging and ice cream, an insane perfectionist, a creator of parodies and dubious tweets. Not only does Kovy entertain young people, but he can also sell more important, political and social issues. His YouTube channel called Kovy now has over 780,000 followers. In autumn 2019, he published a fiction book called iPohádka (i-Fairy Tale).
On YouTube, he began as a Let‘s player, creating vlogs about playing computer games. Gradually, his work took a different direction. His current videos influence the public opinion of young people. He tries to persuade them to participate in public life; he actively meets students and talks about issues which should be addressed by young generation. He is sometimes called a spokesman of the upcoming generation.
His YouTube channels are followed by more than a million subscribers, his Instagram account has more than half a million fans. His most successful video, the parody of the hit Despacito, has been viewed more than 10 million times.
