Now we all know Kenan has come a longgggggg way. In fact, we can all say in a way, we’ve grown up with Kenan. From his days on Nickelodeon’s ALLTHAT to his spinoff show Kenan And Kel. And how could we ever forget his GoodBurger movie.

It’s amazing to see that Kenan is still on our television screens 20 years later. Congrats to him and his new show!
