5 of the Wealthiest Male Social Media Influencers

With all of the attention of five of the highest earning female social media influencers, we thought we would also take you through five of the highest earning male social media influencers.

From lifestyle, men's fashion and gaming, male social media stars come in many forms and are well-known in a number of different areas.

1. PewDiePie, aka Felix Kjellberg

As a world-renowned social media influencer, PewDiePie is best known for his YouTube channel which is the most subscribed-to individual creator of all time.

With that in mind, it is no surprise that Brighton-based PewDiePie is worth an estimated £16m, donating large chunks of that to charity.

With hilarious commentary-style videos and his famous 'Let's Play' series, we expect PewDiePie to be a well-known face in the online community for quite some time.

2. Joe Sugg

Previously known as Thatcher Joe, Joe Sugg rose to fame thanks to his quirky YouTube channel and Instagram content.

Worth an estimated £4.6m, Joe was the first social media personality to star in BBC's Strictly Come Dancing and has since made his west-end debut in Waitress London.

Making a move to more traditional forms of media and becoming a regular on our TV screens, Joe has successfully combined the modern online era of social media with conventional media.

3. KSI

KSI, also known as 'JJ' is well known as a social media personality, rapper and YouTuber.

After beginning his YouTube career around gaming-commentary style videos, KSI now produces daily vlogs and comedy-style content.
