BETA SQUAD is an online reality project with five of the UK’s most exciting creators embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Chunkz, Niko Omilana, King Kenny, AJ Shabeel and Sharky – all of which have individual channels and are represented by Moxie - have each left their family homes for the first time to live in a state-of-the-art mansion at a secret location in London, England.
Over a period of 12 months, the five personalities will create daily content streams for a number of platforms including YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat all under the social handle BetaSquad5 while continuing to publish via their own channels.
It the UK’s single biggest online collaborative creator project with a media company ever, and Studio71 UK’s largest investment in a creator project since it was launched in 2017.
Beta Squad includes the daring, 20-year-old documentarian Niko Omilana, who has seen a massive rise in popularity over the past year for his satirical documentary videos which include going under-cover in the EDL, antagonising Trump supporters and gaining unauthorised red-carpet access at this year’s BAFTA awards.
He’s joined by Chunkz, an Island Records-signed singer and comedian who already has a number of content streams under his belt – namely, the hilarious Cooking with Chunkz – and has previously collaborated with the likes of Big Shaq.
Extreme gamer and comedy vlogger, King Kenny will also enter the house, along with challenge master AJ Shabeel and sports-obsessed Sharky.
The five creators are already friends and feature regularly in each other’s content, but this new initiative will allow them to develop continuous and cross-over storylines, longstanding brand partnerships and audience engagement.
