YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has secured another major victory over T-Series, reaching a whopping 93 million subscribers on April 4 after releasing his ‘Congratulations’ diss track.

While T-Series appeared to take the lead in late March, the song quickly boosted PewDiePie back to the top, and now the race is back on – much to his amusement.

PewDiePie discussed his surprising victory during a game of ‘You Laugh, You Lose’ just ahead of his latest milestone achievement, where he called the development “the comeback of the century.”

“It’s ironic how we made the ‘Congratulations’ song to wrap up the meme, to stop the meme,” he said of the situation. “We finally did it… the comeback of the goddamn century.”

His statement rings true; things truly seemed hopeless for the YouTube king, after T-Series scored a convincing lead over PewDiePie for a 5-day period.

Flare TV, YouTubePewDiePie reached 93 million subscribers ahead of T-Series, with a whopping 300,000 subscriber gap in his favor.

Sitting at over 100,000 subscribers above PewDiePie, T-Series caused fans to scramble in an effort to retrieve his crown – but PewDiePie’s very own diss track handled the situation for him, with the YouTuber now soaring above his Bollywood nemesis.

Why is T-Series growing so quickly?

T-Series’ sudden surge in subscribers can be credited to the country’s recent access to Wi-Fi, thanks to mobile network provider Jio.

Jio’s services provide citizens with affordable internet in rural areas, meaning that more of India’s population is online than ever before – inciting a mass subscriber increase toward T-Series’ YouTube channel.

ReutersJio’s network services are allowing India to come online at breakneck speeds, providing affordable rates to rural areas in the country.

T-Series “exposed” by PewDiePie

Despite the label’s success, PewDiePie’s ‘Congratulations’ diss track dug up some serious dirt against the company, claiming that it had begun its business by providing pirated songs – and even linked CEO Bhushan Kumar to the Indian mafia.

That’s not all; PewDiePie likewise mentioned a sexual harassment case against Kumar, which was later withdrawn in early 2019 after the claimant admitted the allegations were false.

Despite these claims, T-Series continues to thrive, thanks to several of its videos going viral in the process – but PewDiePie’s dedicated fanbase are making sure he reaches 100 million subs ahead of the label in the meantime.

YouTube star and Sway House member Bryce Hall has officially apologized to Dixie D’Amelio after pranking her boyfriend with strippers — and his way of saying sorry is one for the books.

On February 17, Hall uploaded a YouTube video in which he decided to prank Dixie by blindfolding Noah and hiring two exotic dancers to do their thing around him. During this time, Hall FaceTimed Dixie to show off the proceedings, leading the completely unamused D’Amelio sister to quickly end the call.

Unsurprisingly, many fans felt the prank was “insensitive” and potentially relationship-damaging; but while Dixie and Noah appear to be on good terms despite the practical joke, Hall has since decided to make up for his blunder in a big way.

A few days later, Hall brought Noah back to his home for yet another surprise — but this time, it was a far more positive one. After presenting Noah with a heartfelt letter, Bryce revealed that he’d purchased the TikTok-famous couple a voucher for a beachside hotel in Malibu, California, which they can redeem at any time.

“I got a suite for you guys on the beach in Malibu,” he explained. “It’s really nice. I felt bad for the prank. …and it’s a voucher, so you can go whatever day you want.”

Luckily, it seems that both Dixie and Noah are happy with Bryce’s unexpected gift, with Noah joking that “Bryce does have a heart!” before admitting: “That’s so nice, actually!”

“Thank you Bryce! That’s very kind,” Dixie added, who was let in on the situation — once again — via FaceTime. “I appreciate it!”

It looks like things are all smooth on the homefront with these three in wake of a prank that even had Dixie’s mother slamming Bryce Hall for being “disrespectful” to her daughter.

Noah himself had even called for Hall to apologize beforehand, stating during paparazzi video: “He shouldn’t be apologizing to me. He should be apologizing to Dixie.”

While Bryce is known for his “party animal” lifestyle, it’s nice to see the TikTok star showing his soft side — especially when it brings together some of his best friends.
