Popular YouTuber and member of the ‘Sidemen’, Vikram ‘Vikkstar123’ Barn, has announced that he is leaving the Sidemen house, and moving out on his own.

Sidemen is a YouTube collective of UK based content creators, led by the likes of KSI and others, who run the Sidemen channel as well as their own.


Together they make various skits, vlogs and challenges, and even released a book in 2016 detailing the story of their careers and how they joined forces.

Vikkstar, a member of Sidemen since its inception, will remain part of the group, but will no longer be living alongside them in their large mansion home.


Instead, he plans to move into London City proper, to get the most out of city life and live more independently. “I’m going to be moving into my own place, that’s in London,” he explains “I want to enjoy the city life.”

“I’ll be bringing you guys along with me all the way, I’m not going anywhere, I’ve been doing this seven, eight years, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. […] I can’t thank the Sidemen enough for the journey we’ve had together and all the amazing memories.”

Given that he is no longer staying in the house, it is unclear how often Vikkstar will participate in the ‘Sidemen Sundays’ videos, the weekly series posted on the Sidemen channel.

Over the past 12 months, Vikkstar has shifted his content focus on to primarily Fortnite gameplay commentaries, and less vlog or other game content.


The focus on Fortnite, as for many other YouTubers, appears to be working for Vikkstar123, who almost a decade into his YouTube career is still seeing consistent growth.


Twitch streamer Jinny stunned as man tries to sell her drugs on stream

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.


Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.


“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny's Twitch chat
Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.


“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.


“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
