Denis Kopotun (born June 5, 1996 (1996-06-05) [age 25]), also known as DenisDaily (formerly KongoBoom), is a Canadian gaming YouTuber known for his Minecraft (originally Roblox) gameplay videos and friendly, easygoing personality. He is also famous for playing the horror game Granny.

He used to be one of the most-subscribed male Roblox YouTubers (due to him switching to Minecraft) along with Flamingo and GamingWithKev. He was part of the now disbanded YouTube group The Pals, which consists of himself, Sketch, Alex, Sub, and formerly Corl.

He was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, later moving to Nashville, Tennessee, then moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba and then he moved to Vancouver, Canada where he currently lives. He is engaged to O'Hara.

Denis took a break from YouTube in 2020 and came back in 2021 to tell people that he wasn't gonna make Roblox videos anymore due to not being interested and anxiety. He's going to make Minecraft Videos instead.

Denis originally owned a channel called KongoBoom and made Minecraft vids with Corl. But a later period of time Denis gave up on KongoBoom, that is until he met Alex, Sketch, and Sub and so together they created a collaboration channel called The Pals.


Sir Meows A Lot

Sir Meows A Lot is Denis' channel's mascot. Denis loves cats. At, there is even a plush toy and a squishy for Sir Meows A Lot.[1] It was based on the Business Cat, a Roblox Shoulder accessory.[2]


Pinchy is another mascot that was based on Cool Crab Shoulder Friend, a Roblox Shoulder accessory. There is a plushie for it in the Denis merch.[3]

Messenger Manatee

Messenger manatee is also another mascot that was show cased on Denis' YouTube channel. There was also a plushie for Messenger Manatee.


Mickey Trend

In March 2017, Denis made a few videos about a Roblox hacker account called Mickey claiming that he was a hacker and claimed that he would hack Roblox on September 18 1817, but it was a rumor. He had nothing to do with creating the rumor, it was being created by the Roblox troll group known as the "Off-Topic Forums".


On September 25, 2017, Denis made a video about a website called Growbux, a website he created that gave users "free Robux" after installing an app.[4] This caused lots of controversy in the Roblox community. Many accused him of exploiting kids by making them download applications that could contain malware and spyware, some developers of popular Roblox games (like Alexnewtron the creator of MeepCity) even said that he violates Roblox's terms of services which has a rule not to provide free Robux through third-party websites, along with violating the COPPA guidelines (COPPA is a law that prevents websites from exploiting, scamming or collecting personal information from under 13s).[5] Denis has tried to deny the accusations, saying it's not a scam. He even called another person "ignorant" for being misinformed. This caused even more hatred for Denis. He eventually apologized and updated everything.

Clickbait and Theft Accusations

Denis is known to have made several misleading clickbait videos. He is also known for stealing thumbnails, as several YouTubers such as greenlegocats123 and legobloxian called him out for it, Denis has yet to respond to these accusations to this day.

Disbanding The Pals

In February 2019, YouTuber Corl was tweeting hurtful messages to a fan who almost committed suicide. Shortly after, Denis responded with kicking Corl out of the Pals and abandoning their 11-year friendship. Shortly after, Corl posted several pictures with him holding a Moss-berg shotgun with his hair grown out, but then deleted it after concerns arose for Denis' health and the rest of the pals. Corl has quit everything ever since. Because of this, in July of 2019, Denis announced the Pals were disbanding into independent channels. Denis still uploads videos and tweets things to this day, while Corl remains inactive on his social media.

Roblox Retirement

When Denis returned from his mental health break in March 2021, he announced that he just wants to solely focus on Minecraft. He has no intention on continuing his popular Roblox series. Fans went on his social media and comments and criticise him for leaving the popular gaming platform. He currently plays Minecraft on his channel. It is not known, if he is going to play other games.

Other Channels

Denis made an account called Sir Meows A Lot for Sir Meows A Lot videos, but the channel is currently inactive.

Denis also made a Denis Minecraft for his Minecraft videos, and it was announced by Messenger Manatee in a video called "Message from Messenger Manatee"[6] , but the channel currently remains inactive.

Denis also made a channel named Denis And Me (short for Meow), it has over 300k subscribers & it was aired on a TV program called "Crave".
