PewDiePie YouTube Career
Later on in 2010, he started his YouTube channel while attending school. But after a while, he decided to quit school and started focusing on his YouTube channel. His parents were not in support of his decision and he was facing the hardest part of his life.
But then after two years of hard work, he managed to get over 1 million YouTube subscribers. During the journey to 1 million YouTube subscribers, PewDiePie worked under many different multi-channel networks, just like many YouTubers have.
Besides the consistent growth of his channel, Felix Kjellberg uploaded a new video on 2nd December 2016, in which he promised that he is going to delete his YouTube channel if the channel “PewDiePie” hits 50 million subscribers.
And that video went crazily viral on the internet and the news spreaded everywhere like fire. And because of that, a lot of people really started subscribing to his channel and eventually, he reached 50 million followers!
Check out the following video where PewDiePie promised that he is going to delete his channel after hitting 50 million subscribers
So did he really deleted the channel after hitting 50 million subscribers mark?
Well, yes he deleted his channel but he saved his 50 million subscribers too!
