Mark Angel is one of the household names in the comedy industry in Nigeria. He is well known for his short comedy series on YouTube called Mark Angel Comedy which has over six million subscribers.

In 2017, the comedy series received a plaque from Youtube after becoming the first-ever Nigerian-owned YouTube channel to hit a million subscribers. The comedy series, which started some six years ago, is among the most-watched videos on YouTube, with daily views of 1.4 million.

Since then, Mark Angel has evolved to become the biggest YouTube earner in Nigeria. According to a study by Accredited Debt Relief, the content creator earns some $326,800 in monthly revenue with estimated daily views of 1.4 million. The study used the Noxinfluencer YouTube Money Calculator, which takes the average views and number of subscribers of a YouTube channel to estimate how much money it makes from ads per thousand views.

“All figures are estimated, as there are many unknown factors that decide earnings, such as the video type and location of the channel,” the study said.

On the methodology used to find the top earners, it used statistical websites Social Blade and Vidooly to find out which YouTuber has the most subscribers in each country. “If the most subscribed channel was a band, media channel or company of any kind rather than an individual YouTuber, we looked for the next highest subscribed channel. Next, we used Banner Tag to find average daily views and estimated how much each channel was earning using a site called Noxinfluencer,” it said.

The study also noted that lihile there are several options for making money on YouTube, it’s nearly impossible to make a living without a large following. “It’s important to note that figures are estimates of each YouTuber’s ad revenue, so it doesn’t account for corporate sponsorships, merchandise sales, or any fan donations. So for all we know, these influencers could be making even more money. If that doesn’t inspire you to start posting amateur videos on YouTube, we don’t know what will.”

The study however showed that the world’s most popular individual YouTuber is PewDiePie, a Swedish influencer based in England with over 100 million subscribers. Also, six-year-old Russian-American Anastasia Radzinskaya is the most popular YouTuber in the U.S with the channel name, Like Nastya.

Meanwhile, the star of the comedy series, Emmanuella, recently built a house for her parents. The 10-year-old took to her official Instagram account to announce to her 471,000 followers that she built her mother a house. “I built this for you mom.”

“For all the prayers; all the encouragement and support. Mummy, I know you said you want a portable house and this is it,” she posted on her Instagram handle. But forgive me because I must complete your mansion for you next year. Don’t worry, it won’t make us go to hell; my super Christmas mummy. I love you.”
