Zerkaa Net Worth $4 Million

What Is Zerkaa’s Net Worth?

Josh Bradley—AKA Zerkaa—is a UK YouTuber, influencer, streamer, and outspoken comedian who has a net worth of $4 million. He has been hailed by the Sunday Times as one of the most influential content creators in the United Kingdom.

Big praise for a young guy from South London—but it has been clear to those who know him that Bradley was always destined to do something big.

As co-founder of one of Britain’s biggest creator collectives, and wielding a power of influence over more than 4 million YouTube subscribers, Zerkaa is doing big things on the internet.

Joshua Charlie Joseph Bradley was born on September 4, 1992, in Bermondsey, South London, England.

As a kid growing up in London, Bradley liked the usual things—he was a fan of Millwall football club, enjoyed FIFA and Call of Duty, and liked making videos.

Bradley has been a fan of Millwall FC for as long as he can remember.

When he was 6, he was gifted a season ticket—and he still has it now.

Except now, he can also afford to buy his own season pass each year.

Bradley was also really good at school—something which probably doesn’t surprise his fans.

He attended Bexley Grammar School—the same school as fellow Sidemen squad member, Tobi Brown.

At Bexley, he gained an A+ in business studies, and 10 Bs, in his GCSE year.

In his A Levels prior to heading to university, he secured good grades before enrolling at Ravensbourne University to study digital film production.

He graduated in 2013 with an honors degree.

Zerkaa – Girlfriend

He lived in the Sidemen House in London for almost 5 years—from February 2014 to January 2019—before he moved in with his girlfriend, Freya Nightingale. Freya Nightingale, known online as gamer and YouTuber Freyz Playz, has been dating Zerkaa since late 2011, but they were together for 8 years before they moved in together.

The Path to Greatness

Bradley started uploading videos to YouTube in 2008.

The videos were mostly centered on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but over time the young gamer expanded into FIFA.

He built his following slowly—mainly because he didn’t have the time to develop his channel while he was at school and university.

Things started to progress for Bradley’s social media presence in 2013.

He founded a content creator crew with a group of fellow influencers—and school friends—which would become one of the biggest creator groups in the UK.

The Sidemen Are Born


The Sidemen is a UK-based group made up of major British influencers KSI, Miniminter, Zerkaa, TBJZL, Behzinga, WS2, and Vikkstar123.

The group puts out content for fans that includes challenges, sketches, and gaming commentary.

Between them, the Sidemen had racked up more than 130 million subscribers.

Bradley and Brown met KSI and Miniminter through the gaming community—KSI and Miniminter had attended school in Hertfordshire together.

From there, the rest of the group formed, with Bradley meeting Lewis at an NYC FIFA gaming event.

For a long time, Bradley didn’t even show his face on camera.

It wasn’t until 2014 that he shed the mask he’d often hidden behind, and started engaging more personally with his steadily growing fanbase.

On Twitch, Josh has over 1.4 million followers.

Some of Zerkaa’s sponsors are Spotify and Adidas Originals.

He also launched a clothing and merchandise line in April of 2017, which he named ZRKLDN. ZRKLDN stands for Zerk London.
