Who is Ronnie Banks?
Ronnie Banks was born on 20 October 1997, in Oakland, California USA, and is a social media personality as well as a musician, best known from finding popularity on the website Vine before the app shut down. He’s since transitioned to other social media networks.
The Wealth of Ronnie Banks
How rich is Ronnie Banks? As of late-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is close to $1 million, earned through success in his various endeavors, which have included acting as well as social media activities, such as on YouTube channels. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Ronnie first found interest in making his own video content in 2010, when he discovered the website YouTube, deciding then that he would create his own channel. However, he didn’t really pay too much attention to it, as his sights were set on the app Vine which was rapidly increasing in popularity. He released his first Vine video in 2013, and soon began gaining fame, becoming one of the top names on the social media app.
Eventually, his videos reached the top 50 Vines of all time, with more than two million followers on account. However, the app soon shut down, leading to many of the popular Vine artists to transition to other websites. He focused on his first YouTube channel, initially called yungronTV which was later renamed to iRonnie. He started creating various types of content on YouTube, mainly related to comedy including skits, challenge videos, and other types of content similar to that of his Vine account. He supported the channel for two years, but eventually decided to forego that type of content.
Other YouTube Channels and Social Media Accounts
Banks started focusing on his second channel called RonnieSwanks, which featured more vlog type content. The channel also featured the occasional pranks, challenges and reactions, but it was more about updating fans about his life, including recent travels and endeavors. The channel accumulated hundreds of thousands of subscribers, and it later changed name to the BANKS family, as it started featuring his daughter and relationships. He also had another channel called Ronnie Banks, which featured comedy and vine content, though it was also discontinued.
Aside from YouTube, he is also highly active on other social media websites, including Twitter on which he promotes some of his videos as well as communicates with fans. His Instagram account has a lot of photos of his daily endeavors, along with pictures of her daughter, however, he deleted a lot of pictures of her daughter’s mother. He also created an Instagram account for his daughter which has tens of thousands of followers, along with a few pictures. Ronnie has several Facebook profiles, including a personal page which has not been updated for a year. He also has community pages which have thousands of likes.
Expanding His Repertoire
Ronnie’s online popularity has allowed him to try his hand at other ventures as well, particularly in music and acting. He made an appearance in the 9th season of the CBS series “Criminal Minds”, a police procedural series focused on a group of behavioral profilers for the FBI who work on profiling the criminal rather than just investigating the crime. Cast members include Mandy Patinkin, Thomas Gibson, and Lola Glaudini, and the show has gained a lot of critical acclaim for its writing, atmosphere, acting and directing.
Other acting projects he’s had include “Sally” and “Easy Hustle”, plus a guest role in the television show “Miles Handy”, a science fiction series that aired for six episodes. He has also tried his hand at modelling work, plus in 2014 he released his debut single entitled “Wake Up”, featuring singer Adrian Marcel; the song reached 10th spot on the iTunes R&B Charts. During the same year, he performed at San Francisco’s “Scream Jam”, and he has also composed numerous other songs dedicated to the mother of his daughter.
