- Apart from being a famous social media personality, Rudan Custodio is also a trained dancer. When he was a child, he took dance lessons, including ballet dancing. Much of his popularity on YouTube can be credited to the dance moves he shows on his videos. However, on the live broadcasting site YouNow, he acts much like a friendly figure to his audience. He is also very proud of his rapping abilities, and is known for his improvisations. A talented musician, he has recently shifted his focus to music and has released a couple singles which were received well by his fans.As a senior user of YouNow, after gaining popularity, Rudan took the initiative to communicate with other famous personalities on the platform to form a group together. He was inspired by the group of YouTubers, "Our 2nd Life", and thought that YouNow also needed a group like that. He soon became friends with famous YouNowers Nick Bean, Zach Clayton, Edwin Burgos, and Timmy Connors. In early 2015, they decided to form a squad in order share their fan base, instead of competing with each other. Their squad was named 5quad and soon started to dominate on YouNow. They eventually moved to other social media platforms and started to perform live together. Rudan often acted as the spokesperson for the group. The group recently decided to work individually and parted ways.Beyond Fame
- In early 2015, Rudan Custodio started dating another famous YouNow star, Maddie Welborn. Like with many other members of the 5quad group, the fans gave the pair of Rudan and Maddie the nickname "Raddie." The two have made a lot of video broadcasts together, under the tag Raddie, and often appeared on each others' YouTube channels. However, their relationship was short-lived and lasted only a few months. Maddie's father was against this relationship and asked Rudan to stop communicating with his daughter, even going as far as threatening to involve the police. Apparently, her family members were not comfortable with the 5 years' age gap between the two. Rudan expressed his sadness on various social media platforms, mentioning their conversation via message. It took him a long time to recover from the breakup, but they now seem to be comfortable around each other. It is not clear if it has anything to do with his breakup with Maddie, but Rudan has deleted a lot of his pictures and videos from his social media accounts. However, while promoting his new single "Keep Your Head Up" on Instagram, he recently mentioned that he will be back soon. He is currently active on Twitter, YouNow and Twitch.Behind The Curtains
