Vikram Singh Barn (Vikkstar123) is a YouTuber and streamer with an estimated net worth of £8 million. As he focuses mainly on video game content, Vik has made a name for himself in the Minecraft community. He also lives with a group of internet personalities known as the Sidemen.
On August 2, 1995, Vik was born to a family of Indian descent. He is the youngest of the three siblings in the family. His birthplace is Guildford, England, but he spent a lot of time in Sheffield.
From 2006 through 2013, young Vik attended Silverdale School in Sheffield, where he was considered as a model student. This happened even when he had a rough time adapting to the city’s culture.
While finishing his A-levels, he was offered a Natural Science scholarship at University College London. However, he chose to turn down the offer and initiate a career in content creation instead.
Vik kickstarted his YouTube endeavor by launching his own channel on April 12, 2010. He began by filming himself playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. But it wasn’t until he uploaded Minecraft videos that he gained some real engagement. He then started to diversify his games.
When he joined the Sidemen in 2013, his number of followers skyrocketed. He gained even more recognition when his diss track, ‘The End- Sidemen Diss Track Reply,’ was released. He also became associated with the Dream SMP and The Pack.
For the past four years, Vik has been known for posting daily gaming videos. That’s why it’s no surprise that the Vikkstar123 channel has amassed a total of 7.48 million subscribers today.
In YouTube ads alone, Vik earns nearly £600,000 every year. Apart from producing gaming content consistently and getting multiple sponsorships, he also makes money from other ventures. He’s been juggling his other projects, such as the Sidemen’s merchandising.
He co-owns the Call of Duty League team London Royal Ravens. He and the eSports group will be launching new content formats in the future. In addition, they will conduct promotional activities and host esports events, such as the independent ReKT Global tournaments.
Vikkstar also runs a Minecraft server called VikkCraft, where users may play Hunger Games, Factions, Sky Wars, Cerberus, and Lucky Block Hunger Games. Vik has stated that he has earned over £2 million from running Minecraft servers.
At 26 years old, Vik Barn has acquired a big following who are interested in his personal affairs. When it comes to his love life, Vik is not yet married. But he had a relationship with Kayleigh Wordley from 2015 to 2017.
Although their connection has been discreet for the past several years, he is currently dating another girl. And just recently, he announced it on a social media post. The lucky woman is Ellie Harlow.
As of his residence, there is not much information available other than he is situated in England. Also, it is known that he lived in the Sidemen House from 2014 to 2018.
