About iMAV3RIQ

He didn’t choose the savage life, the savage life chose him. Playing games like Madden NFL and NBA 2K, Dion Williams, aka iMAV3RIQ, gained nearly 250K new YouTube subscribers in 2017, pushing him close to the 900K mark. Dion has the unique ability to take his gaming talents off-screen, doing challenges based on the football and basketball video games, with “THE WIGGLE STIX CHALLENGE REMATCH - IRL Football Challenge” becoming his most popular video of the year with 1.5M+ views. He also got to meet NBA 2K18 cover athlete James Harden, beating the NBA All-Star in a 10-shot basketball challenge. He’s become so popular that EA Sports even created a downloadable character of him to play in the most recent installment of the NBA 2K series.
