Popular YouTuber PewDiePie banks $54M before quitting in 2020


THE astonishing earnings of one of YouTube’s biggest stars have been revealed by experts.

Swedish video-maker PewDiePie earned a whopping £54million in 2019, banking £7million in September alone.

Even in November, his least successful month of the year, the YouTuber – who boasts 102million subscribers – banked close to £3million, according to researchers.

The news follows PewDiePie’s announcement last month that he was taking a break from YouTube, saying he was “very tired”.

The monthly revenue generated by the 30-year-old internet star, real name Felix Kjellberg, was estimated using online tool Selfy.

It calculated the minimum and maximum monthly revenue he could make from selling merchandise and from ads on the video site.

Figures revealed that PewDiePie made a whopping £54.1million in 2019 – enough to allow him to retire for life should he choose not to return to video making.

The Scandinavian’s most successful period was September, during which he made £6,9million from ads and merch alone.

This is the same month he began playing hugely popular video game Minecraft on his channel, a move which proved a great success.

PewDiePie’s second most successful month was August, the same month he married Marzia Bisogning, now Kjellberg, his girlfriend of eight years.
