Annual Student Awards 2015: Creative/Tech Award
Posted 3rd March
Ridwan’s tireless dedication to his successful YouTube channel is impressive and inspirational.
Aged just 18, he has over 70,000 subscribers and is aiming for 100k next year. He set up Gamer4Ever as a serious YouTube channel after editing and posting all the funny scenes from Despicable Me, which went viral with 17 million views. A keen gamer, he works at home, with a friend to edit and upload videos and walkthroughs to help other gamers. He uploads on average 5 new videos each day and has almost 60 million views. His focused business mind has meant that he has now been poached by one of the biggest gaming companies in the UK.
He’s regularly invited to industry launches and events, and is being sponsored to attend the international video game conference, E3, in Los Angeles next year. All this, while working hard on his BTEC extended media course.
Congratulations Ridwan Khan!
