If you’ve been looking at tech reviews about the latest gadgets, you’ve probably come across this guy. Popularly known online as Mrwhosetheboss, Arun Maini is one of the top YouTubers in the UK for technology-related content. As of 2024, Mrwhosetheboss has an estimated net worth of $4 million.
Arun Maini was born on October 24, 1995 and hails from Nottingham, England. Maini’s family is of Indian descent and his parents Dinesh and Malti, are both directors at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics. He also has two siblings, a younger brother named Karan and a sister called Aanavee.
Arun was a gifted pupil, receiving excellent grades at school and enjoyed playing chess, a hobby he continued to play as an adult. However, he was a very shy kid and was often picked on as a result.
When he got his first phone at 14 years old, Arun was amazed by what technology could do. After graduating from high school, the young man studied economics at the University of Warwick and earned his bachelor’s degree in 2017.
Mrwhosetheboss began uploading videos on YouTube shortly after getting his first smartphone in 2011. Originally, he wanted the channel to be dedicated solely to mobile phone reviews.
During university, he interned at PricewaterhouseCoopers in London, a leading professional services firm. Around this time, he was actively making content but wasn’t making much money.
After finishing the internship, Arun was offered an entry-level role and a $46,000 salary. He politely declined the offer, preferring to focus full-time on his YouTube channel.
Maini began pivoting away from mobile phone reviews because the market was too small. As the channel’s popularity grew, Maini broadened the scope of videos to include laptops, automobiles, and even vacuum cleaners.
He’s also released videos expressing his thoughts on issues involving internet companies, media propaganda and the rise of the metaverse. His most popular videos are titled “Turn your Smartphone into a 3D Hologram” and “How this wallpaper kills your phone.”
However, 2021 was a pivotal year and he signed a deal with the talent management company, Night Media. He also won an award in the technology category at the 2021 Streamy Awards. Currently, the Mrwhosetheboss channel has 15.6 million subscribers.
Net Worth and Earnings
It is estimated that Arun Maini makes up to $1.8 million every year through his YouTube channel’s ad revenue. However, social media stars rarely depend on a single source of income. Sponsorship deals and affiliate marketing are common revenue streams, especially for tech influencers.
Furthermore, YouTube isn’t the only platform he uses, the British content creator has 1.4 million followers on Instagram. Some of his other income streams are a nice addition to his YouTube earnings. Because of this, his net worth is reported to be around $4 million.
According to Companies House in the UK, Arun set up a company called Boss Global Properties Limited in March 2018 for his online earnings. As of 31 March 2022, the business had assets worth £423,273.
Mrwhosetheboss is a very private person but he did share a picture of girlfriend on Instagram. One fan hilariously replied in the comments asking, “when’s the review dropping?”. In March 2023, Arun announced his engagement to his partner, Dhrisha. It’s rumored they live together in Nottingham, England.
