Nickmercs’ Wiki Bio

Nick Kolcheff was born in Michigan US on 21 November 1990, so under the zodiac sign of Scorpio and holding American nationality – he is a popular YouTuber, better known by his nickname Nickmercs.

Who is Nickmercs girlfriend?

Nickmercs’ girlfriend is now Emumita Bonita – that is not her real name but is rather her username on Instagram. There is not much known about the two as they almost never talk about their relationship – the only proof of them being together are the pictures which they both upload on their Instagram accounts.

Nickmercs’ early life and education

Nickmercs is quite secretive when it comes to his family, and he rarely talks about them – his father’s name is Kelvin Kolcheff and he had worked as a football coach at a local high school in Michigan before he retired; he now works as his son’s manager. There is nothing known about Nickmercs’ mother or any siblings, as he respects their privacy.

After he matriculated from the City High School Michigan, he enrolled at the University of Michigan and graduated four years later with a bachelor’s degree.


Love towards gaming

Nickmercs spent most of his childhood playing video games – one could say that he was obsessed with them, but he didn’t consider that he could make a career out of it one day. He wasn’t getting along with his father at that time, because Kelvin thought that his son could do much more than just sit and play games for the whole day. The tension between the two once heated up so badly that Kelvin smashed his son’s Xbox console – the act didn’t fix anything, but persuaded Nickmercs to leave home.

It took a while but Kelvin came to understand his son’s passion towards gaming, and eventually let him pursue his dreams – still, Nickmercs moved to Lone Jack in Missouri, and joined a team of other popular gamers.

Gaming career

The launch of his personal YouTube channel can be considered as the start of his career – he started “Nickmercs” channel on 4 December 2011, and has so far gathered over 1.7 million subscribers and nearly 136 million views of all his videos combined.

Just a few days later, Nickmercs had managed to break the record of having the most ‘kills’ in a single game of “Fortnite Battle Royal Special” –56 – and out of nowhere, people began following his YouTube channel and subscribing to his Twitch account – it actually took less than 24 hours for Nickmercs to become popular in the gaming community.

In 2017, Nickmercs and his in-game partner managed to break another record – they had killed 23 players each in a single game of “Fortnite” duo mode. Thanks to being very good at “Fortnite”, Nickmercs managed to gather over 2.6 million followers to his Twitch account and has over 58.8 million views of all his 1,350 video combined.
