Nico Kenn De Balinthazy, who goes by SNEAKO, is a popular American YouTuber known for his commentary and motivational videos. He was born on September 8, 1998 and has a heritage of both Haitian and Filipino descent.
He had a YouTube channel called SHNEAKO where he did livestreams and shared clips from them. Now the majority of his audiences are through Instagram, where he has several hundred thousand followers.
SNEAKO YouTube and Social Media Career
SNEAKO began by uploading videos of playing video games along with commentary, then shifted to a style that combines motivational speaking and topics related to life.
He is best known for his video “Would You Say the N-Word for 1 Dollar”, in which he went around asking people if they would say the N-word if he paid them $1.
He would create videos on topics such as “Is It Okay To Be Fat” and “Why Men and Women Aren’t Equal”.
He created a podcast series called One Minute Podcast, consisting of his sociopolitical commentaries, rants, reviews and political commentaries. He also occasionally vlogged while he was in a relationship with his girlfriend.
SNEAKO used to be employed by Mr. Beast, but was let go. He sometimes performs stand-up comedy as well.
The response to his main channel was mostly positive, while people had mixed feelings about his streaming channel because he made comments on feminism and left-wing politics.
SNEAKO Terminated from YouTube and Moves to Rumble
On October 3, 2022, YouTube cancelled the accounts of SNEAKO on both of his channels despite there being no warnings on his main channel, which violated their terms of service.
SNEAKO thanked his followers for nine years of support on YouTube and then moved his videos to Rumble, which resulted in an additional 100,000 subscribers within a month.
In September 2022, his Twitter account was suspended after he challenged Hasanabi to a physical fight and threatened to injure him. The account was restored in November 2022.
