Manu Rios has followers. This much readers will know having glanced at his 1.1 million subscribers on YouTube or for that matter the 3.9 million on Instagram. Some five million buttons were clicked to make those audience figures possible and yet the thrill of seeing a pretty face on a magazine cover has in no way diminished. The December 2018 issue of Desnudo Italia stokes that very thrill for its readers with a cover story on the Spanish sensation. “Ever since I was little I was certain that I wanted to make this my career,” says Manu in his interview with Ty Chen. Manu pursued his passion and at the same time got a jump on his career in entertainment and now modeling by uploading music video to his YouTube channel. Evidently his efforts resonated with viewers, who have contributed to more than 7.6 million views in a little over two years. This sort of hype around a singular personality is nothing new, but that in no way diminishes the fact of it. Manu is in control and where he goes from here the possibilities are limitless.
