Who is Ryan Higa?
Ryan Higa is a popular YouTuber, who is also known under the name nigahiga – also the title of his YouTube channel. Born on the 6th June 1990, in Hilo, Hawaii, he came to prominence thanks to his comedy videos such as “How to be Ninja”, “How to be Gangster”, and “The iPod Human”, all of which have now attracted more than 40 million views.
Early Life, Family, and Education
Ryan, of part-Japanese ancestry, grew up in his hometown with his older brother Kyle. In order to bring his ancestry closer to himself, Ryan competed in judo during his early years, and has obtained a black belt. Once in Waiakea High School, Ryan started wrestling for the school team; he matriculated in 2008.
Even while in high school, Ryan started his YouTube channel, and with his friend, Sean Fujiyoshi began uploading videos of the two lip-syncing to popular songs of the time. The two quickly became an internet sensation, incorporating new ideas into their videos. Unfortunately, the two got into a controversy over copyright violations in late 2008, so in January 2009, nigahiga channel was suspended, and many of the videos were removed. He managed to recover his channel, but had problems with his most popular videos “How to be Gangster”, and “How to be Emo”, as they were on and off the network several times before they were back online for good in the spring of 2012.
