The world of social media has brought a lot of new faces into people's lives. We don't have to rely on Hollywood to bring us entertainment – all anyone needs to maybe get famous now is to have a smartphone, access to the internet and some relatable ideas. People can now get their own followers through TikTok, Instagram, or YouTube. One person who gained some popularity was JP24GM on YouTube. However, the growing personality suddenly vanished from his platform. So, what happened to JP24GM?
Who is JP24GM?
JP24GM is a YouTube star who started his channel on March 16, 2016. In that time, JP24GM, whose real name is Jamie Perkins, uploaded over 200 videos to his channel.
In the description of his YouTube channel, Jamie wrote, "my channel consists of vlogs, real life videos, Fifa, gaming, FUT Pack and much more! Hope you enjoy my channel."
It continued, "My goal by 2019 is, 50K, which is what I've dreamed of since starting YouTube so let's try make that possible by hitting that subscribe button!"
At the time of this article, his subscribers grew to hit 173,000 followers and received several thousand views on each video. He also had other social media platforms, including a Twitch stream which has over one thousand followers, a Twitter profile with under a thousand followers, and a Instagram profile that was rarely updated.
Beyond his social media profiles, there isn't a whole lot known about Jamie. We know that he lives in the United Kingdom, but his age or anything about his personal life isn't too public. It's clear he was a big fan of FIFA and football (or soccer as we know it in the United States), as the majority of his videos cover the FIFA video game series.
