The internet is a wonderful place as it has provided people with a massive number of opportunities and helped them rise and shine in the world. Some of the most influential people on the internet are Gary Vee, Casey Neistat, and some others as well. While some make their living as an influencer, some build their career as an artist and also as an entertainer. One of those many talented people is KevJumba, the famous YouTuber.
These days, most of the people involve themselves in YouTube videos rather than lingering in front of TV screens because YouTube provides portability and also a large range of content. Kev has made full use of it, and well, as you see, he is a massive personality and has a lot of followers all around the world as well. For people who know Kev, he is not news. But for those people who have barely any idea on this matter, let us enlighten you.
Kev, as we speak, is a YouTuber, blogger, and also an avid activist who makes sure that he fights and supports good causes. However, as most people say, his blogging days are very far behind him these days, but we say otherwise. Kev’s videos and blogs still remain very relevant and help people break a smile in their darkest days as well. No, this is not an exaggeration in any manner. Through his YouTube fame, Kev has also collaborated with some of the most famous people around the internet. One of them is Ryan Higa.
Now, skipping all the introduction, let’s talk more about Kev’s personal life and other factors as well because most of them remain hidden from his fans and followers. Learn more about your favorite YouTuber right here.
KevJumba Early Life, Childhood
One of the most earliest and famous YouTuber of all time, KevJumba, a blogger as well as an activist, was born on June 12, 1990, in Houston, Texas, United States of America. As of now, Kev is already 29 years old. Because of chinky eyes and younger-looking skin, Kev still comes off and easily passes as a man in his early 20s.
While you may wonder what exactly is the reason behind this younger-looking persona, it’s quite clear. Kev has a hereditary look that most Asians have. Meaning, as we see often, Asian people have younger-looking features very predominantly even though they are aged.
Kev was born to Michael Wu and his wife, and they named him Kevin Wu. His name, as most presume, is not Kevin Jumba but Kevin Wu. For the sake of ease, we shall address Kev as Kevin from now onwards, and it should remain pretty clear as well. Kevin was born here, but his parents are not from the states.
Kevin’s parents are immigrants from Taiwan and have a long line of ancestry from that country. However, since Kevin was born in the states, he is every bit of American as others. Wu’s father worked as a computer engineer and pursued a very successful career as well. This played a massive role in his childhood, as well.
Since Kevin grew up with his wants fulfilled most of the time, his childhood always remained fairly normal. When it comes to learning more about his family and early, we’re sad that Kevin gives a red signal here.
Almost everyone is familiar with the notorious reputation that Asian parents have when it comes to education and having their children on the same path as well. If you look at the pole, most of the intellectual people around the world come from Asian countries, and it’s been the same for many years.
Kevin’s parents were no exception, but since the American lifestyle already influenced their life, things weren’t as severe. As a young lad, Kevin enrolled at the Clements High School, and there Wu established himself as an average student who came as a surprise to everyone.
Later on, during his career in making YouTube videos, we believe some of the contents he posted were a reflection of his real-life past. Once, Wu made a video based on his educational journey as a kid in which he said that he always remained an average student and that his marks were more on the B+ range than A.
Moreover, Wu also made videos on how his parents scolded him and said things like dishonoring family name and corresponding things when Wu did not perform as expected in school. However, it is a creativity that matters most and not the marks posted on sheets of paper.
Kevin graduated from high school in 2008 and began to contemplate whether joining college is a good idea or not. After much thinking, Kevin joined the University of California. But the university couldn’t contain his creative mind, and he later dropped out. But he recently went back to college and graduated. So, what did Jumba did next? Let’s find out that.
While in all places, Kevin shines, when it comes to his personal life, Kevin remains very much mum and silent as well. Kev does not talk about his personal life as many of the people who always remain in the public’s eye. While Wu does not find it out of the line when featuring his father in his videos, that is not the same case when it comes to significant other.
As of now, Kevin does not talk about his relationship status to the public and always keeps everything hidden from everyone’s eyes. Because of this, fans and followers do not have a single idea about his personal life. Does Kevin have a girlfriend? Well, only the people closest to Kevin know that.
For now, we assume that Kevin is dating someone but likes to keep it private and hidden so that it does not get affected by lots of attention, which he gets.
Born in the year 1990, Kev began his career in the online entertainment platform YouTube during its inception. Back when Kev was just 16 years old, in 2006, Kevin joined the YouTube community and began posting videos that were humorous and made people laugh immensely.
One of these most initial breakthroughs came when Kevin made a video in which he talked about all the stereotypes that he had to deal with on mostly a regular basis just because he was an Asian-America. It is in that video where Kevin talked about his educational journey and other stuff, as well.
Kevin titled the video I Have To Deal with stereotypes that blew up on YouTube, and millions of people watched with very avid enthusiasm. WeWu began posting a lot of videos on YouTube and started gathering a lot of attention from people around the world. Slowly, Wu also started to feature his father, Michael Wu, and people loved the father-son duo humor.
In 2010, Wu also collaborated with Funemployed and made several videos with Philip Wang and other creative people like Nigahiga.
While Kevin achieved the title of becoming one of the three under the age of 21 years old YouTuber with the most subscriber, his videos started to shrink in numbers, and his fans left bewildered. One of the main causes of the gradual disappearance of the YouTube scene is because Kevin got into a car accident.
In 2015, Kevin got himself in a fatal car accident from which he barely made it out alive. Fortunately, Wu bounced back from all the injuries and got himself all ready for a career. Wu also explained how he wants to become an actor, as well.
KevJumba, as a young man, achieved a lot of things at a very young age, and it all came to a very deserving reward. Making YouTube videos on a consistent basis back in the days was very challenging and pretty frowned upon as well. But with persistence, Kevin made his way into the world of creatives and content making.
As a result, his name remains familiar to millions of people around the globe, and along that way, Kevin has also made a massive fortune for himself as well. As of now, Kevin has a massive net worth of $2 million. With monthly estimated earnings of $23 thousand to $300 thousand, Kevin is a very wealthy young man.
