Finalist in Breakout YouTuber of the Year

About Denzel Dion

Always-popping, Denzel Dion is dominating YouTube. The Ghanaian-American social media personality known for dishing pop culture critiques, Denzel’s hilariously savage uploads have rapidly launched him to viral YouTube fame, surging him past the 1M subscriber mark in December 2018. With his 90s-influenced look described by Vogue as “6’5” with a raised flat top à la Kid ’n Play’s Kid” Denzel’s personal stylings have inspired a coordinating “Dion” fashion line. Using his growing platforms for good and promote diversity, Denzel teamed with AT&T for their 28 Days’ #HistoryByUs, “black history told by those making it.” Keep your eyes on Denzel, he’s about to blow up.
