Amin Mohammed, better known by his stage name Chunkz, is a YouTuber and host with a net worth of £350,000. The viral 2017 Big Shaq song ‘Man’s Not Hot’ featured him as Asznee, and he rocketed to stardom as a result of this. But after retiring from music, he focused on other things in his life and career.
In the year 1996, Amin was born in a Muslim Somali household in London’s northwest region. As the youngest of five siblings, his parents were active in his upbringing.
His family has always been supportive of him as he grew up with a keen interest in music, rap, and cinema. He decided he wanted to entertain others since he was a child.
The now 25-year-old’s inspirations include Poet, David Vujanic, and KSI, which he worked with later in his content creation career. Chunkz was featured in a video of the Sidemen, a YouTube group that KSI is a core member of.
Rise to Fame
In Big Shaq’s 2017 music video “Man’s Not Hot,” Mohammed played the role of Asznee. The song is very fun to listen to, so it quickly became a hit. Now, it has reaped 398 million views.
He and Michael Dapaah assisted the train ticket retailer Trainline in launching a voice app for the Google Assistant in March 2018 to make rail route planning easier. He and Yung Filly released their first rap track and music video, “Clean Up,” in March 2020.
With 2.7 million Instagram followers and 2.11 million YouTube subscribers, the social media star has a loyal following that helped him win the best entertainer title in the International Somali Award.
Retiring from Music
Due to his religious beliefs, Chunkz declared his departure from music in May 2021. He stated in a video that music and the life that goes with it did not align with his spiritual convictions.
Of course, he expected a lot of backlash from this announcement. But to his surprise, most fan reactions were positive. His choice was well-received on Twitter, and many of his followers backed him up.
Even after quitting music, Chunkz is still doing well financially. He earns money from sponsorships, promoting his own goods, and his YouTube revenue. He is also the co-host for #SaturdaySocial and The Aphetor Games.
Pranks, vlogs, cuisine, challenges, and rap battles are among the things he does on his channel. In 2019, he joined Sharky, AJ Shabeel, Kenny, and Niko Omilana, to form the Beta Squad. Studio71 Network, a media corporation, has exclusive rights to all of the group members.
With four of his Beta Squad mates, he currently lives in a $5 million mansion in England. Amin was able to witness his following grow even more in the property, allowing him to become a well-known influencer.
Chunkz is also on a continuous journey of staying fit. He has shed 42 kilos and is in the best shape of his life since June 2020. During the last 18 months, he got fitter, stronger, and slimmer, so his workout routine consequently changed.
