One of the most popular YouTubers ever. Due to his popularity he has had a lot success surrounding the "nigahiga" brand.

He used to make video Sean Fujiyoshi but now does with himself with the Ryan Higa production company (group of friends/producers), along with Sean at times.

His videos are for entertainment and as of July 15, 2017, he has nearly 20 million subscribers on his main YouTube channel, making him have the 19th most subscribed channel on YouTube.

The channel was on two occasions the most subscribed on YouTube, surpassing Smosh in September 2008 but losing it to Fred a month later until surpassing him in subscribers to become the most subscribed YouTuber again in August of the next year, holding it until June 26, 2011.

Many say his reign as #1 was due to his comedy and spontaneous video schedule. Although his popularity has decreased in certain ways, he is still more relevant in different ways too.

He as well has another channel which has over 500 million views (his main channel having over 3 billion total video views) and nearly 5 million subscribers where he post BTS videos of the videos he posted on his main channel.
I'm not really a big fan of nigahiga or think he should've been the most subscribed on YouTube as long he did but he is still one of the best on YouTube.

Get the nigahiga mug.
These two very funny Japanese guys ( Ryan Higa and Sean Fujiyoshi) from Hilo, Hawaii They achieved stardom by lip syncing and by their How To videos. The videos include on how to be emo, nerd, gangster, and ninja. They also have other friends join in the videos. Ryan also does individual rants about stuff like comments, stinky people and stuff like that. They also remix songs and make it their own way. They are number 2 in Youtube behind that idiot Fred.
e is for emotional, ruins everybody's life

m is for miserable people

o is for on the dark side 'cause we have some fresh cookies

A Japanese comedian on youtube that makes funny videos along with his other East Asian friends. He started off at 16 doing lip synching. In some of those videos he was featured dressing up as a queer and a gangster.

Later Nigahiga and his friends started making videos for how-to-be emo/ninja/gangster/nerd. This made them rise to internet stardom. Nigahiga also does solo videos in which he rants about things he's involved at the moment. He has ranted about ADD/comments and stinky people.

In his video: rant on stink people, he describes about a kid he saw that wass obnoxiously smelly and later claims that he is Indian. Then he says "since he's Indian his name must be smells-like-ass".

This has offended many of his fans especially south asians. He has recieved criticism. But some of his fans have put up response videos in his defence, denying that he was racist and that it is the norm for comedians to make racially offensive comments.
Indian girl: I used to like Nigahiga, I thought he a fun guy. After watching that video rant on stink people, I don't like him anymore.

White guy: What's your fucking problem? He already warned in the start of the video with a viewer's descretion.

Indian girl: The viewer descretion doesnt say that the video contained material that is offensive to Indian people.

White guy: sheesh! lighten up its just a funny video. Cant you laught at yourselves?

Indian girl: Hey cracker unlike you we Indians are proud of ourselves. Thst racist twart is indirectly trying to say that we Indians are smelly. I wont tolerate that!

White guy: Well thats your problem! You stinky, curry, smelly, dirty, black and hairy loose pussy Indian!

Indian girl: ... T.T
