And that award goes to Ryan Kaji, an eight-year-old boy hailing from Texas of USA, and reportedly having earned a whopping $26 million in the year 2019.

Ryan's channel, "Ryan's World" (formerly known as 'Ryan ToysReview') has amassed a follower base of 23-million subscribers at the the time of this writing. Of course, he doesn't run all of it on his own, being mainly managed by his mum and dad, Mr. Shion and Mrs. Loann Kaji with the occasional appearences of his twin baby-sisters, Emma and Kate.
