Ajey aka Carryminati is presently a youtube sensation with 29.5 million subscribers. He was just 10 years old when he found out about YouTube and was fascinated by the chances it gave him. After spending three years researching the platform, Ajey decided at 13 that he wanted to pursue a career as a digital content creator.
Ajey shares that he was a frigid child who had problems conveying himself, but developing content for YouTube assisted him to gain confidence. The digital prodigy who grew up in Faridabad luckily had the total support of his parents who motivated him to pursue his passion but insisted he finish off his education via long-distance learning.
Though he did miss out on a ‘regular’ childhood, Ajey has no remorse because he was immersed in his passion. Over the years, Ajey has mastered the art of roasting, reaction videos, and video game live streaming. He helpfully embellished on each of these. “Roasting is picking out things that are funny and making a new video or product out of it.
Video game live streaming is an interactive activity where creators record themselves playing games to a live audience online.” In 2017, Ajey similarly initiated a separate channel, ‘CarryisLive’ where he plays video games while performing live interactions with his subscribers.
However, he has spent over a decade of his skilled life on the platform, Ajey shares that he is still attempting to comprehend the algorithm and how it works. But there is one thing he is sure of, “Disruptive content is the king of online media today, and the algorithm loves you the most when content riles the audience up”.
But even with 29.5 million subscribers, being named ‘Next Generation Leader’ by a magazine in 2019 and being not just India’s but Asia’s most prominent content creator on YouTube, Ajey is not one to rest on his laurels. He shares that he has a very clear conception for the future, where he wants to see himself become one of the world’s top 5 content creators.
