The Island Boys: Who are they, and are they gay?

Share This Post

With a name like “The Island Boys,” you’d think this duo was all about relaxing and having a good time, but that couldn’t be further from reality. The Island Boys are twin brothers Franky and Alex Venegas, who perform under the names Kodiyakredd and Flyysoulja, respectively. 

The recognizable social media stars and rappers are known for their tattoo-covered bodies, unique hairstyles, and viral hit song, “I’m An Island Boy.” They have a combined TikTok following of 9 million, and have feuded with Jake and Logan Paul, and Bryce Hall. 

As with most viral social media sensations, The Island Boys’ fame eventually waned which prompted them to start an OnlyFans account together in order to keep cashing in. However, due to their controversial OnlyFans content, people quickly started accusing them of “incest-baiting” and speculating about their sexual orientations, wondering if they’re gay or just gay for pay. 

Who Are The Island Boys?

Born on July 16, 2001, twins Franky and Alex Venegas (aka The Island Boys) were raised by their single mother after their father died when they were young. In interviews they’ve shared that they got into a lot of trouble growing up, including committing crimes like robbery and possessing narcotics.  

In October 2021, a video of the duo performing a rap song went viral, garnering tens of millions of views on TikTok and Twitter. The song included the lyrics, “‘Cause I’m an island boy, and I’ve been trying to make it / Oh, I’m an island boy / Ayy, Imma just island boy, I’m just island boy,” which led viewers to dub them “The Island Boys.”

They eventually released a fully produced version of “I’m An Island Boy” and backed it with a music video

The Island Boys Feud with Jake and Logan Paul

In December 2021, the Island Boys were guests on YouTuber Logan Paul’s podcast, Impaulsive. Co-host George Janko suggested that they invest their money in case their careers in music didn’t pan out. The Island Boys took offense to this and responded that they didn’t need financial advice, with Alex (Flyysoulja) saying, “I probably make more money than you,” before walking out of the podcast studio. 

Several days later, the Island Boys attended Jake Paul’s boxing match against professional boxer Tyron Woodley in Tampa, Florida, suggesting that they were on good terms again. 

The Island Boys, OnlyFans, and Incest Accusations 

Throughout their early career, many people would comment on videos of the Island Boys telling them to kiss, or asking them if they’d ever thought about kissing each other to which they responded, “I can’t believe you guys even think like that.”

In April 2022, a video of the Island Boys participating in a “group kiss” with two women went viral on Instagram. The clip was flooded with comments from concerned fans who thought the Island Boys finally took their brotherly love a step too far.  

A year later, they were uploading their own explicit content to promote their joint OnlyFans account. Fans were outraged, accusing the brothers of “incest baiting” and causing general speculation about their sexual orientations. Flyysoulja initially denied the claims of incest and homosexuality, saying in a statement to TMZ, “We’re both straight males and kissing is not counted as a sexual act.”

But a few weeks later, he hopped on a live stream and made statements that led viewers to believe he was coming out as gay. “I’m a top, I’m never a bottom,” Flyysoulja said in a clip from the stream. “I’m never a bottom. I’m a top. You know what I’m saying? I’m like that. For real.” He continued, “You guys support me, because you feel me. I like men. It is what it is. I’m a top. I’m a top at the end of the day. That’s what’s going on.”

While it’s historically been unclear if anything that the Island Boys do is authentic or for views, people took Flyysoulja’s statement as a legitimate coming out statement. However, in September 2023, Flyysoulja posted a photo to Instagram of what appeared to be him getting married to musician and social media influencer, Kayla Thayla

While Flyysoulja’s alleged marriage doesn’t necessarily negate his previous statements on his sexual orientation, it certainly validates the idea that sexuality is nuanced and ever-evolving.
