Who is NFKRZ?
Roman Albertovich Abalin was born on 24 January 1998, in Chelyabinsk, Russia, and is a YouTube personality, best known for his channel entitled NFKRZ (No Fuckerz) on which he releases various comedy-related content. He previously did video game content before shifting his focus to commentary and comedy videos.
The Riches of NFKRZ
How rich is NFKRZ? As of mid-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $300,000, earned through a successful career on YouTube. His online fame has led him to numerous opportunities, including collaborations with other popular YouTube personalities, and sponsorships. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Very little is known about NFKRZ’s life before his rise to fame, as he has not shared anything about his family and childhood. It is known that he grew up with a strong interest in gaming, which would eventually become the stepping stone for his online career. After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at Chelyabinsk State University to study for a degree in linguistics and translation.
The university was established in 1976 and is one of the leading academic institutions of the South Urals. The university has three branches, 13 offices, and five research institutes, and offers courses in biology, ecology, chemistry, journalism, fundamental medicine, physics, and many more. They also offer post graduate studies, including master’s degree and doctorate courses. If a student enrolls in the university without knowledge of the Russian language, they have to take a year-long preparatory course to help him transition into the university. One of the reasons Roman studied for a language degree was to help him learn and become fluent in English.
NFKRZ began his online career years before he stepped into the university, starting his YouTube channel in 2010 initially intended to showcase gameplay videos. YouTube was the project of three former PayPal employees, and was later bought by Google. It is a video-sharing website and one of the largest sources of video media on the internet. Videos from video blogs (vlogs), live streams, video clips, music videos, documentaries, trailers, and many more can be viewed on the website. Users can upload their content to share with others, and can possibly earn income through Google’s AdSense program.
He began by posting videos of himself playing the game “Team Fortress 2”, a multiplayer first-person shooter released in 2007 as a successor to the 1996 mod “Team Fortress”. The game has players join one of two teams, playing one of nine character classes, and offers various types of game modes such as King of the Hill and Capture the Flag. He continued to release more video game content over the next few months, and collaborated with other YouTubers who are his friends. He played a lot with Dolan Dark, Pyrocynical, and Jameskii, which increased his popularity and his subscribership quickly.
Transition to Commentary and Comedy
Eventually, NFKRZ focused his attention more on commentary types of videos, which has become a normal transition for many YouTube gamers. A lot of followers enjoyed watching his commentary content, and he also enjoyed doing them. However, this attracted a bit of controversy when he released a video in 2017 criticizing Keemstar in an interview he did with KSI. Keemstar then reacted and criticized NFRKZ for creating a video which was stretched to help gain more ads. Surprised at the sudden response, he didn’t pay no mind to it at first, but Keemstar continued to troll him over the coming days.

Eventually NFKRZ was triggered and issued a number of rage filled tweets, filled with death threats, insults, and anti-Semitic comments. He was banned from Twitter as a result, but later produced a video apologizing for the comments.
Aside from his commentary, he is known for releasing several tracks on YouTube, including “Can’t Touch My Swag”, “Keemstar Diss Track”, and “Click to Bait”. He often uses beats from the rapper Drake’s songs as a base for his tracks. He also worked with Filthy Frank/Pink Guy on a cover version of “Panda”.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, it is known that NFKRZ was in a relationship with a woman named Sonia who was featured in several of his videos, but he later revealed that they broke up. Since then, he has not been reported to be in any relationships, and many sources state that he is single. He has often been criticized and mocked by many of his viewers for his English accent, despite having better than average English skills. Critics often comment “Give subtitles”, or “I can’t understand you” in reference to his English.
Similar to numerous YouTube personalities, he is very active on several social media websites. While he was previously banned on Twitter, the ban was later lifted when he made an apology. His Twitter account has over 34,000 followers, and mainly promotes his YouTube content. He also enjoys posting memes and some of his day to day endeavors. He also has an Instagram account with over 62,000 followers, on which he posts personal photos including those taken during his travels. He mentions that he is only a part time YouTuber, which indicates a possibility that he may have other projects apart from his channel.
