JiDion Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education
JiDion Armani Adams was born on 12 December 2000 in Houston, Texas USA; he’s been silent about his parents, and hasn’t revealed their names and professions, and hasn’t mentioned having any siblings. He attended a local high school in Houston, but according to reports, during his education, he was suspended from school for hustling.
JiDion started his YouTube career by creating his main channel on 1 July 2018, uploading his first video two months later. Unfortunately, his early videos have all been removed, but he continued to produce new ones, and started getting traction in Spring 2019, with some of these videos reaching millions of views quickly. As his popularity slowly increased, it took him more than a year to reach 100,000 subscribers. The slow start didn’t discourage him, as he continued with comedic videos, and in late 2020 and early 2021, his channel got the highly-needed boost.
Rise to Stardom
He reached the one million subscribers mark in August 2021, and since then, his popularity has been on a steady rise, topping at seven million in April 2023. His popularity stems from his comedic skits in public places, and his controversial interactions with people – he’s been both loved and hated for this. Notable moments include getting kicked out of Shoe-Palace by the manager Tyrone, leading to a diss track entitled “F**k Tyrone“. Despite a brief reconciliation, tensions resurfaced. JiDion collaborated with Niko Omilana in the series “The Biggest Menace” to determine the better prankster, contributing to the popularity of his channel and the overall subscriber numbers.
He now has more than 7.5 million subscribers on his channel, and his videos have more than 680 million views. Some of his most popular videos include “Funniest Pranks Of 2020 | JiDion“, amassing 27 million views in two years, showcasing humorous pranks from that year. Another hit is “Taking Bath During Online College Classes!” with 23 million views in two years, humorously capturing the scenario of bathing during online college sessions. The video “He Came to Meet A 13 Year Old, Meets Cops Instead!” is next in line, which garnered 17 million views in five months, portraying an unexpected encounter with the police. Additionally, “Getting A Haircut During NBA Game!” secured 15 million views in one year, featuring JiDion getting a haircut during an NBA game.
An additional YouTube channel by JiDion has made strides – JiDion Live has close to three million subscribers, while his videos have garnered almost 400 million views. Some of his most popular videos on this channel include “I Had a Sleepover At a Sorority House!“, which has amassed seven million views in the span of a year. In this video, JiDion takes his audience on a humorous journey as he spends a night at a sorority house.
“DeMarcus Cousins Pranks The News!” is his next popular video on the channel, and it’s garnered close to six million views over two years. This video shows a man interviewed by police on a bank robbery that happened during the day, who resembles DeMarcus Cousins, a popular National Basketball Association (NBA) player.
“JiDion Confronts Logan Paul” has gained five million views in just two months. In this recent video, JiDion confronts popular YouTuber Logan Paul, leading to an intense interaction between the two content creators.
His next popular video, “JiDion Meets KSI” has accumulated 4.5 million views in one year. This video features JiDion meeting and interacting with the well-known YouTuber and boxer KSI, offering fans a unique and exciting collaboration between the two internet personalities.
Recently, he’s share his journey to Christianity in the latest video on the channel.
Twitch Popularity and Controversy
JiDion’s gained a substantial Twitch following, but his journey on the platform became marked by controversies, resulting in a permanent ban. One notable incident involved him raiding Pokimane’s stream, beginning on 12 January 2022, when JiDion celebrated his Twitch partnership by raiding Pokimane’s stream with spam and provocative comments. He mocked and called out individuals in Pokimane’s chat, alluding to her possible relationship with someone named Kevin, which led Pokimane to end her stream prematurely. Subsequently, JiDion received a 14-day ban from Twitch, but the feud escalated when Pokimane criticized Twitch for verifying JiDion, and defended her use of a racial slur, with JiDion’s ban becoming permanent after Pokimane demanded further action.

The controversy prompted reactions from various online creators, particularly from the W community, who argued that the issue extended beyond a black vs. white creator battle. YouTubers such as Zach The Saint and Turkey Tom criticized what they perceived as a double standard, suggesting that women such as Pokimane manipulated Twitch rules without facing the same consequences as their male counterparts.
Concerns over Twitch’s alleged sexism and favoritism were further fueled by JiDion’s claim that his Twitch representative informed him he could no longer return to the platform due to the permanent ban.
In another incident during TwitchCon Amsterdam in 2022, JiDion trolled the event by sneaking in and harassing TommyInnit. This led to JiDion being banned from TwitchCon, and sparked accusations of harassment from TommyInnit’s fans. However, after the release of JiDion’s video and subsequent clarification, it was revealed that he didn’t harass either Tommy or his fans. The controversy was resolved as TommyInnit and JiDion reconciled, with Tommy acknowledging misunderstandings and confirming that they had spoken on the phone.
In October 2021, Adams was kicked out of Best Buy for being shirtless, and later brought a group of shirtless men to harass the employee. He faced a ban from Wimbledon in 2021 for disruptive behavior, including sounding an airhorn during a match. In September 2022, he was removed from the US Open tennis men’s finals for getting a haircut during the match. Adams also received a lifetime ban from all NBA and WNBA events in July 2023 for a stunt at a WNBA game.
According to authoritative sources, JiDion’s net worth is estimated at close to $1 million as of late 2023.
