Amos: millionaire in the making

Maybe S’poreans shouldn’t be that hard on Amos Yee’s antics. Maybe he’s pursuing the S’pore deam of the 4 Cs in his own unique way like the UK boy who earns US$4.5m by simply making videos of himself.

Data analysed by video intelligence company Tubular Labs shows that 17,000 creators have more than 100,000 subscribers – and 1,275 of these creators are registered in the UK.

Incredibly, 1,477 YouTube creators have more than a million subscribers, and 147 of these creators are registered in the UK.

Tubular Labs has created a list of the top 10 most influential UK creators for the BBC.

At the very top is Olajide “JJ” Olatunji, who dropped out of college, but has made $4.5m (£2.9m) in the past year, according to a Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid YouTube stars.

The 22-year-old, from Watford, has more than 10 million subscribers on his KSI YouTube channel and a “social reach” of 17.4 million when other social media platforms are taken into account.

He is best known for filming himself playing computer games while commentating on them, but he also makes comedy videos and more typical vlogs.

His vlogs include one where he decided to dye his hair blond and another in which he filmed himself for a week to give his viewers a chance to see what he does when he’s not posting YouTube videos.

Amos can be funny but the problem is that he sticks to a riff too long. He did a video attacking the PAP but after the first three minutes, he started going round in circles. If he can’t milk any more from a riff, he should move to another topic, and then another.

  1. These Youtubers overseas 1) don’t swear in every single of their videos 2) Don’t call a leader idiotic names or compare him with religious figures without accurate evidence.

    Yee will yee for quite a while.
