Speaking to reporters about his success, he said:

I want parents to know that, you know, if their kids do enjoy playing games and they have a passion for it and they’re really good at it, they should treat it like any other sport.

His fame on YouTube has since shot up and he has been making some really good money through subscribers. But he's a smart kid. So he has saved up all his earnings for the future, incase gaming doesn't sustain him anymore.
