―Carry's Intro

Ajey Nagar (born: June 12, 1999 (1999-06-12) [age 22]), better known online as CarryMinati (or simply Carry), is an Indian YouTuber who uploads commentaries, roasts and reaction videos on his YouTube channel. He also has a second channel named ‘CarryIsLive’ for livestreams. He is the most subscribed non-corporate Indian YouTuber and the first in India to reach 30 million subscribers.

History & YouTube Career

Ajey was 15 years old when he first started making YouTube videos. Recording gameplay of games such as CS: GO and uploaded them on his YouTube channel which was called AddictedA1 at the time. He later switched to a commentary style of videos, doing roasts and rants videos in front of a camera when he noticed that his gaming content wasn't gaining that much attention.

Ajey kept making videos of this format, uploading roasts of Indian music videos and rap music by smaller artists whom he calls "bakchod". It was at this time where his channel started to grow since this format was quite new to Indian content on YouTube. Carry was obviously inspired by LeafyIsHere, an American commentary YouTuber who often makes fun of similar types of content featuring gameplay in the background.

He got the name CarryMinati from a running joke about him joining the Illuminati. He soon changed his name and even his YouTube logo to fit the theme, with his icon as the Illuminati pyramid and adding the illuminati eye at the end of each of his videos. It was at this point in his career that he was gaining subscribers faster than ever, even faster than BB Ki Vines, gaining 100K Subscribers in less than a month.

On May 31, 2016, he uploaded the "ROASTING BB KI VINES" video in which he roasted popular Indian YouTuber Bhuvan Bam and his channel BB Ki Vines. The video soon went viral and Carry's subscriber count grew tremendously. CarryMinati gained over 50,000 subscribers in 2 Years (2014−2016) making him one of the fastest-growing channels in his genre in India, currently gaining over 3K subscribers daily. On an episode of TECH2-Gadgets by 1Up Gaming, he said that he wants to be India's PewDiePie. In a video, he has stated that he watched anime on Crunchyroll during a sponsored advertisement of the VPN Software NordVPN.

Carry is also known for making his own rap music videos, often parodic and satirical of the "bakchod" artists he mocks in his content. He once attended YouTube FanFest 2017 at Jio Gardens, Mumbai, where he showed great enthusiasm and debuted his performance live. Some of his own music videos include:

  • Bantai rap − Balle Balle
  • Star boys − The Weeknd
  • Bahubali On Cycle (Bahubali Parody)
  • Ae Rupali (Success Story Of A Cringe Pop Artist)
  • Charas Ganja (Success Story Of A Cringe Pop Artist)

He was listed as the Top 10 Next Generation Leaders by Times Magazine at the age of 19.[1]


Roast Reactions

CarryMinati is a commentary channel that makes fun of other creators, so like many other channels of his kind, Carry started receiving copyright strikes from creators whose videos were roasted by Carry. This included receiving three whole strikes from Baap Of Bakchod and Bhim Narula (a Nepali singer) after Carry made fun of his CANCEROUS TABLET. Carry has also encountered copyright strikes from renowned Indian singer Baba Sehgal, known by the YouTube channel "THE NERDY GANGSTERS". Carry has also received numerous threats from content creators he has encountered in the past..

Carry is also well known for being against reaction YouTubers and pranksters. He has made videos on popular reaction channels such as Pardesi Girl and Excited Indian, as well as making videos on prank channels like The Crazy Sumit and a few others. As of January 2017, he has stopped making videos on channels makes roast videos on music videos and rap artists.

"YouTube Vs TikTok: The End"

On May 8, 2020, Carry uploaded the finale to his series "YouTube vs TikTok", in which he roasted many famous Indian TikTok users such as Amir Siddiqui, who previously called out the YouTube community. The video went instantly viral, and as a result he gained one million subscribers that day, and a further 1.4 million the next day. Within a week he gained 5.7 million subscribers, shattering the previous record of 4.23 million set by Tati Westbrook in May 2019. The video was on track to beat MrBeast's video "Make This The Most Liked Video On YouTube" to become the most liked non-music video on the entire website within 12 days of its release.

But sadly, the video was taken down on May 15, 2020 for supposed "harassment and cyberbullying". Carry's fans were extremely upset at YouTube for deleting the video, and as a result, a mass online protest ensued. Multiple hashtags went viral on Twitter, including #JusticeForCarry, which went number one trending internationally. Controversy later reached a new level when Amir's brother Faizal was accused of "glorifying" acid attacks on women in a TikTok video. This made Carry's fans livid with the app itself, and with amounting blame on the TikTok community for the removal of YouTube Vs TikTok: The End, the app was review-bombed with over five million one-star reviews. This sank the app's overall rating from 4.5 to a mere 1.2 within 5 days.

The Play Store removed all of the one-star reviews posted that week, justifying the decision as a "corrective action against spam abuse" and declaring every single one-star review as "fake accounts being set up to destroy the app's high rating".

By the end of May, CarryMinati gained a record 9.1 million subscribers, beating PewDiePie's 6 million gained in December 2018.




"Yalgaar" was released on June 5, 2020 as a response to all the controversy from YouTube Vs TikTok: The End. After its release, Babu Haabi, an Indian pop artist, claimed that the beat used in the song was allegedly "stolen" from him. However, to worsen the situation, YouTuber Kunal Kamra hopped into it and claimed the beats to be his. Carry straight up denied the claim. Enraged by this act of Carry, Haabi started uploading numerous stories on YouTube regarding this controversy, infuriating his fans. He stated that they were taken from his 2016 song "Bobocanta".

Carry denied this again saying that they were created by his brother Wily Frenzy, thus ending this minor controversy. But, the situation reached its worst when it was found out that the beats in Haabi's song "Bobocanta" were stolen from a song "Night Is On My Mind" by Oliver, released in 2013. A user named Sankalp Mishra tweeted it mentioning Oliver about the track. Oliver tweeted "Imagine copying somebody's track then having the nerve to try and sue somebody else for stealing said stolen track. So insane.", clearly referencing the feud. He stated that "He doesn't care about the copy, but the fact that Haabi claimed the song to be copied from Habbi, not Oliver. It finally calmed down over time in mid-June, 2020.


CarryisLive is a YouTube channel started by Carry, initially to stream the game PUBG. However, the channel later started focusing on variety games. The schedule for the stream is almost everyday, at 9-10 pm to 11:30-12:30 pm IST. He occasionally gives shoutouts from the chat and also accepts super chat donations. Several fundraising events have been conducted through this channel including the fundraising event for the flood relief in the states of Assam and Bihar, in July 2020.

However, the channel was hacked at around 3:20 am IST on July 25, 2020. Three PUBG videos were streamed on the channel in which the hacker asked for bitcoins through the chat, with the titles mentioning "extra donations" for fundraising for Assam and Bihar. Carry contacted YouTube through Twitter, and received a response for assistance. The channel was froze so that no negative actions are taken through the channel, all the three streams were removed. At around 6:10 pm IST on the same day, Carry tweeted that "his channel is back" with the assistance of YouTube.


Ajey has not revealed anything about having a partner quite yet, but his fans have always teased him about another YouTuber by the name of Pardesi Girl since he roasted her "BB Ki Vines reaction" video and accused her of stealing views. It was revealed that they have been messaging privately which lead people to believe that they're dating. Ajey and Falguni (Pardesi Girl's real name) have both denied these accusations.

Notable "Victims"

Hero Alom

Ajey is always looking for funny and strange people to roast in his videos. He once stumbled upon Hero Alom, a Bangladeshi Facebook celebrity who dances in his videos. Hero Alom is extremely underweight, making him look quite strange. Ajey made three videos on him and his most viewed video − "THE CLOSEST HUMAN TO GOD" is a roast of Hero Alom's music video, which has gained over 7 million views since.

Avi Gujjar

A cringy rapper Carry has made fun of in his videos. He also uses a clip of Avi's "Yeah" in several of his videos. He was once threatened by the rapper himself on Facebook, which Carry has mentioned in one of his videos and stated that Avi should leave this topic alone and as for the video, it will remain upon his channel. He had roasted two of Avi's videos called "Katta mere haath mein" and "New generation rap", which instantly made a lot of views on YouTube.

Omprakash Mishra

The famous cringy pop artist with a high pitched voice that was badly roasted by CarryMinati on his video, titled, "Aunty ki Ghanti", which became the cringiest song in India. It was basically a song about him liking a woman way older than him. He edited a scene in slow-motion of Omprakash in his video of him, showing Omprakash making a weird noise that sounds like "eeeeeeeeeeahhh". That video went viral in India and other countries.

Dhinchak Pooja 

The Queen of the cringe pop industry, Dhinchak Pooja, created several ear-bleeding songs which were later featured in CarryMinati's videos. She was roasted many times by Carry along the span of four videos, but that did not stop her from making cringy pop songs. Someone had to end this battle, so Carry forfeited.

Taher Shah

This cringy Pakistani artist was roasted twice by Carry for his two songs "Eye To Eye" and "Mankind Angel". He was roasted for his ever-changing expressions in his videos. 

Bhim Narula

The Nepalese cringe factor was roasted for his two songs, titled, "Sunday Morning Love you" and "Cancerous Tablet". He also put a copyright claim on Carry's video. 

Vinay Mishra

Was horribly roasted by Carry in his videos "Michael Jackson Has A New Life" and "Everyone Wants Katrina Cat". He was described as a big and wiggly fish by Carry.

Q&A Videos

Carry usually asks people on Facebook and Twitter to post a question related to him with the #AyeCarry hashtag. He then makes a video and reads the question in a funny voice and then answers them. He did a QNA video on April 28, 2018. One particularly interesting question in that video was that what new things will the viewers get to see in upcoming videos. He answered the question by saying that he will make an animated series of "Tau and Mundal", which he thinks will be very popular and will gain a lot of views and even more subscribers.
