Here’s A Little More on Mrwhosetheboss
Arun Rupesh Maini was born on 24th of October 1995. He is better known as Mrwhosetheboss. Arun is a British YouTuber who is best known for his technology videos on YouTube. As of February 2023, he has over 13 million subscribers and 2 billion YouTube views. This young promising man graduated from the University of Warwick in 2017 with a degree in economics.
Maini studied economics at the University of Warwick. During the course of his studies, he had an internship at Pricewaterhouse Coopers. He considered these eight weeks “rather mundane and boring”. When there, Maini would often complete his work “really quickly” and begin jotting down ideas for new YouTube videos to be recorded that evening. At the conclusion of his internship with Price Waterhouse, Maini was offered an entry-level job that made a salary of about £35,000 (about $46,000). However, he turned down the job and prioritized his career on YouTube.
What Does Mrwhosetheboss Does for A Living?
Maini originally started uploading video game content to YouTube. When he was 14 years old, his brother gave him his first smartphone, a ZTE Blade. Maini decided to make a video about it; “a lot of people watched it, and the video did much better than I expected”. From there, he turned his attention to creating smartphone videos, which ultimately lead to the trajectory of his channel.
Maini initially focused on videos about smartphones, including smartphone reviews. As the channel’s following increased, Maini expanded his video premises to cover laptops, speakers, and even a vacuum cleaner. He also has made videos where he gives his honest thoughts about topics such as sarcastic marketing by smartphone companies. In 2015, Maini uploaded his first viral video which was a tutorial on creating a makeshift 3D hologram projector by crafting a pyramid composed of reflective material and placing it on a smartphone screen. The video received coverage from The Daily Dot and CNBC. The video is still his most viewed YouTube video.
In 2015, Maini’s main channel, Mrwhosetheboss, reached 100,000 subscribers. In February 2018, the channel hit 1 million subscribers.
In April 2021, Maini created his first video on his other YouTube channel, Mrwhosetheboss Shorts, to make shorter content. This channel has been getting hundreds of thousands to tens of millions of views per video, some much more formal than others. Maini also drops some of the wordiness and longer transition times of his main channels’ videos to make them short enough to be watched in 60 seconds or less, and appeal to the general public. Also in April 2021, Mrwhosetheboss Shorts, hit 100,000 subscribers.
In May 2021, Maini signed with Night Media. In September 2022, Maini released a video claiming that Samsung phones may have problems with swelling batteries after he found that his Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Samsung Galaxy S6, and Samsung Galaxy S10 had all experienced the issue. Similar claims were corroborated in the video by other technology YouTubers including Matt Ansini, Marques Brownlee and JerryRigEverything. In March 2022, Mrwhosetheboss hit 10 million subscribers.
In May 2022, Maini pointed out that his health was declining, and said how he planned to use technology to combat this. Later, in August, he uploaded a video documenting how he overcame his problem and physically transformed himself.
