Maltese YouTube star awarded for reaching epic milestone

A Maltese YouTube star is celebrating after reaching a massive milestone.

Grandayy has become the first person in Malta to be honoured with a Gold Play Button from YouTube.

He was given the award for reaching more than 1,000,000 subscribers.

He told his Instagram followers: ‘It feels pretty amazing to be the first Maltese person to receive this reward, thanks for all your support!’

Grandayy, 24, started making videos and memes in 2007, when YouTube was still in its early days.

Six months ago, @grande1899 became the first Maltese Twitter account to hit 100,000 followers.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat is the second most followed Maltese person on Twitter with 64,200.

Well done, Grandayy!
