Denzel Dion is an American YouTuber, actor and fashion enthusiast, popular for his scathing fashion critiques and commentary on celebrity pop culture. Famous for his tagline ‘I said what I said, and I meant what I said’, this social media star is not shy about sharing his opinion on everyone and everything. He started his social media career by uploading short comedy skits on the video sharing platform ‘Vine’. His comic skills and creative content garnered 600,000 followers for him before the app was shut down. Then, he migrated to YouTube, where he switched up his content style to ‘story time’ videos, pranks, challenges, reaction videos and eventually moving on to pop culture topics and discussing fashion hits and misses. He has collaborated with several other famous YouTubers on his channel. His sassiness, critiquing skills and signature style catapulted him to YouTube fame and he soon had more than a million followers on his channel. With millions more following him on Instagram, he is a true social media star. He also has his own fashion line and has recently made his acting debut with the ‘Brat’ channel series ‘Stuck’.
After graduating from high school, Denzel moved to Los Angeles and signed up with an agent since he was interested in acting from a young age. He opened an account on Vine, and posted his first video ‘When a teacher asks if anyone would like to take the attendance to the office’ in February 2014. He started regularly uploading comic skits and parodies based on real-life situations, which garnered more than 600,000 followers for him on the app. Just as he became a popular Vine star, the app was shut down in 2016. But like many other Vine stars, he quickly hopped on over to YouTube and his loyal fans followed him to his eponymous YouTube channel.
On YouTube, he switched up his content style and started posting ‘story time’ videos about his real life experiences with a humourous twist. His channel started gaining traction and he began adding more creative content like ‘Driving with’, ‘Mukbangs’, ‘Pranks’, ‘Challenges’, etc. As his popularity grew, he graduated to doing fashion critique videos like dissecting celebrity looks at award shows, festivals, parties, etc.
His brutally honest videos, delivered in a funny manner, also covered pop culture topics, popular trends, celebrity hits and misses, reactions to his followers comments, critiquing other YouTubers, etc. He loves fashion but does not have any background in it. Nevertheless, he states that he knows what looks good on celebrities and has a strong opinion about it. And he is certainly not shy about dishing out his opinion. He says exactly what he means and does not mince his words about anything or anyone. His personal brand has evolved to generating content that is authentic and honest, and makes people laugh. It is precisely this attitude that made his YouTube channel cross the 1 million subscribers mark in December 2018. He now has over 1.3 million subscribers to his channel. His most popular video till date is ‘Lyric Prank On My Stalker Goes Wrong’ that has 4.8 million views so far. His popularity even got him a mention on the ‘Urban Dictionary’ in 2018.
He posts fresh videos on a weekly basis and is mostly a red-carpet critic now, with a majority of his posts relating to fashion. He begins all his videos with ‘“What’s good? What’s popping?’ He has also collaborated with several other YouTubers like ‘Simplynessa15’, ‘Rickey Thompson’ etc. He is popular on Instagram as well, with over 1.8 million followers on it. His social media fame has led him to be a finalist in the ‘Breakout YouTuber of the Year’ category in the ‘Shorty Awards’ that will be held in New York on May 5, 2019.
Besides being a YouTuber, he is also an actor and fashion designer. This 6’5” tall YouTube star’s personal style consists of a 90s high-top fade hairdo, track suits, windcheaters, and fanny packs, which is reflected in his fashion line ‘Dion by Denzel’ that was launched in February 2019. The line mainly features t-shirts and hoodies embellished with confident catchphrases like ‘Voluntarily Single and ‘Heartbreaker’. He is often seen wearing his merchandise on his YouTube videos. In March 2019, he made his acting debut on the ‘Brat’ channel online series ‘Stuck.’ He has also partnered with major American brands to promote diversity and to support other positive causes. In the near future, the YouTuber hopes to start a podcast and expand his fashion line too.
