Robin Schulz among finalists for TIME’s 2018 Person of the Year?

According to a top source, Robin Schulz is leading the race to become Time magazine's Person of the Year in 2018. But while the dj's fans are thrilled with the news, many people hold a very different opinion.

Why not Schulz for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 30-year-old dj, as a 2018 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Schulz so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the dj have already been named ‘German Of The Year’ by some major German newspapers and even ‘Osnabrück Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Osnabrück (Robin Schulz's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the dj was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“#SchulzPOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”
— @TomMiller, 17 Dec 2017
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveRobin”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 17 Dec 2017
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Robin Schulz?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 17 Dec 2017

Could 2018 officially be the Year of Robin Schulz?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2018 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2018?
