6-year-old Nihal Raj, already a chef in his own right, has been paid $2,000 by Facebook as they bought the rights to his Mickey Mouse shaped, mango ice-cream video, reported Mashable.

Raj started cooking when he was just four years old and has over 1,000 subscribers on his channel KichaTube.

He started the channel in 2015 when his parents recognised his affinity for cooking and encouraged him to upload videos of himself cooking. His mother helps him by giving him simple recipes, which Raj listens to once. He then makes his own version of the dishes.

The video that Facebook bought the rights to has been viewed over 77,000 times.

The Facebook-deal meant that many other offers came his way, but little Nihal is only interested in making YouTube videos with his father and uploading them every Wednesday.
