Rise to Stardom
Kingani’s journey on YouTube started almost as a joke. She has been a gamer and Twitch streamer for a few years. With over 30k followers, it can safely be said that her streaming career is quite successful. But it wasn’t until she started taking YouTube seriously that she started gaining traction in the online community. She started her YouTube channel ‘Kingani’ on January 17, 2016. She stated her reason for the decision was to gain a partnership with the app Discord. The app is important to gamers and provides online chat, file sharing, and other options. Her initial videos were vlogs and facecam videos. They are no longer available in her account.
She started taking YouTube seriously in 2018. With that in mind, Kingani posted a reaction video titled ‘Hotdogs in Places They Shouldn't Be’ on May 20, 2018. The video also featured her friends and other popular YouTubers like Bluesdank and Wildspartanz. Her funny commentary in the video on ridiculous Hotdog memes attracted around 900k views. She continued on her successful trajectory with more videos like ‘Rage Comics’ and ‘Wikihow Memes’. By this point, she had started enjoying creating content for YouTube. And clearly, her fan base responded positively.
On June 16, 2018, Kingani posted the video ‘Instant Regret Playlist’. The video in a series of similar videos was a funny reaction video to meme playlists. It went viral and has since become the most popular video on her channel with more than 5 million views. She found similar success with all the videos of the ‘Instant Regret Playlist’ series which generated millions of views. She also gained thousands of subscribers on all social media platforms, especially YouTube. Additionally, she also earned her Discord partnership.
Within a year of the viral video, Kingani has gained around 600k subscribers. The major achievement is the result of her videos like ‘r/woooosh | Top Posts’, ‘r/softwaregore | Top Posts’, ‘r/deepfriedmemes | Top Posts’, and ‘Funny Yahoo Answers’. Most of her videos feature her friends Bluesdank and Wildspartanz. Some of them are also collaborations with popular YouTubers like Fpsdiesel and Pyrocinical. Perhaps one of her most impressive achievements has been that with only a handful of videos she has gained more than six million views on her channel. Even her secondary YouTube channel ‘Ani’ has been gaining subscribers. She uses the channel to post solo covers of popular songs. This came as a surprise to many of her fans who were drawn in by her soulful voice and impressive singing skills.
Kingani has also been regular on Twitter since October 2016. She tweets about funny memes, news on upcoming content, and general updates. With around 100k followers, it is clear that she has a very active fan base. Kingani also started posting on her Instagram account on October 9, 2017. It gave fans a chance to share her life. Since then, she has regularly posted selfies, images with her friends and family, and her lifestyle and fashion choices. These have helped her to gain more than 60k followers on the social media platform. Needless to say, she is among the top Turkish-American social media influencers in the world today.
