The grade 6 pupil told TimesLIVE on Wednesday he received his first Rubik’s Cube from his dad as a reward for good behaviour.
“It was the first time I touched a cube. I became curious and started trying to solve it.”
Kaligan now owns six versions of the plastic 3D puzzle.
“I have a 2x2, a 3x3, a square-1, a skewb, a pyraminx and a megaminx.
“It improves my memory and teaches patience. More than that, I enjoy trying to beat my personal best time, which is challenging. It’s also addictive. Besides school, I carry my cubes wherever I go.”
Kaligan had asked his aunt for a long time to share his videos online. On Sunday, she complied.
“All I wanted was to share the fun with others my age. I didn’t think the videos would be trending. When my mom told me I had over one million views, I was super excited. I’m not allowed to use TikTok but mom allowed me to read the comments. I couldn’t believe how much love was sent from all across the world. I’m grateful to every single person who watched, shared, liked and commented on my videos,” he said.
