Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, who is famously known by his online pseudonym PewDiePie, is a Swedish YouTuber. He’s also the most subscribed to channel on YouTube.
His gaming videos on YouTube have helped him to become a gaming personality. As of November 2017, PewDiePie’s net worth is estimated to be $20 million.
Felix was born on 24th October, 1989, in Gothenburg, Sweden. From a young age he was interested in art and was an avid gamer during his days in high school.
He graduated from High school from Göteborgs Högre Samskola in 2008 and went on to study at Chalmers University of Technology. But, Felix felt that he didn’t belong there and so he decided to drop out to do what makes him happy.
Even though his early days were hard, he said in a video that he bought equipment to get started by selling his works of Photoshop. He came up with the name of the channel to be ‘PewDiePie’ even though at first it was just Pewdie.
PewDiePie’s energetic and funny commentating on games with epic reactions made him a viral phenomenon very quickly; and he became the most subscribed YouTube channel in 2012 with 5 million subscribers.
He went on to sign with Makers Studio and started to get attention on the media as well. PewDiePie’s channel now has more than 3500 videos with over 50 million subscribers. His channel has included many different game series and segments over the years among which his Lets Play series has been widely popular.
As his popularity grew and reports about the large sums of money were starting to come out public, he got a lot of attention as well as hate at the same time.
That is why he has several videos dedicated to mean comments. His signature is the bro fist that he does at the end of his every video. He also posts vlogs time and again and has a following of any mainstream media.
In 2015, he released his own game called PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist.
He then went on to also release his book that was called as This Book Loves You. PewDiePie has won several accolades among the gaming area on Youtube, most notably winning the Best Gaming Channel, Show, or Series in the 5th Streamy Awards.
Forbes named PewDiePie as the highest-earning YouTuber with his annual income reaching $15 million in 2016. YouTube clearly isn’t the only source of income for Pewdiepie who is also involved with many other productions and projects.
He is also a big giver and has a project called the ‘Water Campaign’. Through the program, he managed to raise over $400,000 and has also been involved with many collaborations over the years.
In recent times, Felix has also been giving a new edge to his channel with some of his free speech videos following controversies over some of the content of his videos.
