For those who don’t know what “Game Shakers” is about, it is a kid’s program that airs on Nickelodeon. The idea started with two 7th graders designing an app that was crazy successful so they decided to start their own business. The company name is “Game Shakers.” The two Game Shakers will become four after they add a friend and a rapper’s son. Their names are Babe, Kenzie, Benjamin, and Hudson. Here are the characters and their real names along with something about each of them.
