Experts have disclosed the impressive earnings of one of the biggest stars of YouTube.
In 2019, Swedish video maker PewDiePie won a whopping £ 54million, in September alone banking £ 7million.
The YouTuber, which boasts 102 million subscribers, banked nearly £ 3 million, according to analysts, even in November, the least successful month of the year.
The news follows the announcement made by PewDiePie last month that he took a break from YouTube, claiming he was “very tired.”
The monthly revenue generated by the real name of Felix Kjellberg, the 30-year-old internet star, was estimated using the Selfy online tool.
Figures revealed that in 2019 PewDiePie made a whopping £ 54.1 million–enough to allow him to retire for good if he decides not to go back to making videos.
The most successful period for the Scandinavian was September, during which he made £ 6.9 million out of advertisements and products alone.
He started playing the hugely popular Minecraft video game on his channel this same month, a move that proved to be a great success.
The second most successful month for PewDiePie was August, the same month he married his eight-year-old girlfriend Marzia Bisogning, now Kjellberg.
The worst months were November and December 2019, where he received a little less than £ 3million.

PewDiePie announced recently that he was leaving Twitch.
“Next year I’m taking a break from YouTube,” he announced on December 16 in a video posted. “I wanted to say it beforehand because I made up my mind. Kjellberg was extremely popular on the website and was its most subscribed user for six years between 2013 and 2019.
He was subsequently overtaken by the Indian record label T-Series, which now has about 123 million subscribers. PewDiePie has had its fair share of controversies over the years.
The Swede sparked an anti-Semitism storm after he paid two men to unravel a banner bearing the message “Death to all Jews”. The video was viewed by 6.6million people.
It resulted in his reality show being canceled by YouTube, who dropped him from its premium advertising channel.
PewDiePie quickly issued an emotional response to the claims of anti-Semitism, appearing to choke back tears as he spoke out against the backlash.
His fans have since targeted the American journalist who unearthed the video and hacked his Twitter account in revenge for the perceived attacks on the much-loved YouTuber’s reputation.
