  • Both are correct.
    By saying " I'm a fan of his" you're rather referring to the fact that you are one of his many fans, and it implies that you are part of his fan community (if you can go so far)

    By saying "I'm a fan of him", you just say that you are a fan and that's it. It also implies that you "like" him".

  • Either way is correct.

    I am a big fan of his focuses on your identity as a fan in relation to him, rather than on him as the object of your fandom.

    I am a big fan of him shifts the focus toward him as the object of your fandom..

    Does that make sense?

  • It is correct to say "I am a big fan of him"
    Once you get more advanced, you can leave that out so you do not need to repeat yourself.
    You can also say "his" if it is followed by something that he does or has
    Example: "I am a big fan of his music"

  • Of him is correct. Trust me. Another is complete wrong.

  • Both are correct.
    I think I would avoid "I'm a fan of his", not because it's wrong but because it sounds odd to my ear. "I'm a big fan of him" sounds even odder to me than "I'm a big fan of his". It would be another one that I would probably avoid.
