He is the most subscribed non-corporate Indian YouTuber and the first in India to reach 30 million subscribers.), better known online as CarryMinati (or simply Carry), is an Indian
History & YouTube Career
Ajey was 15 years old when he first started making YouTube videos. Initially, his channel's name was Addicted A1 where he used to record and upload gameplays of games such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He later switched to a commentary style of videos where he mimics Bollywood actor Sunny Deol (thus changing the name from Addicted A1 to CarryDeol), doing roasts and rant 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 music videos include:
- Bantai rap − Balle Balle (Rap Star On Peak)
- Star boys − The Weeknd (You Asked For This)
- 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 one of the Top 10 Next Generation Leaders by Times Magazine at 19.
CarryMinati is a commentary channel that makes fun of other creators. Like many othdifferentannels of his kind, Carry started receiving copyright strikes from creators whose videos were roasted by Carry. This included receiving three whole strikes: one fthe rom Baap Of Bakchod channel and two from Bhim Narula (a Nepali singer) after Carry made fun of him in the videos "CANCEROUS TABLET" and "Die Every Morning." 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.
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 and made 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. The latter previously called out the YouTube community. The video went instantly viral, and as a result, he gained one million subscribers that da, 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 distraught at YouTube for deleting the video, and as a result, a mass online protest ensued. Multiple hashtags went viral on Twitter, including #JusticeForCarry, the 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 removing 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 five 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 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.

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.
