Kevin Samuels Wiki
A controversial YouTuber, social media influencer, life coach and so-called dating expert, Kevin Samuels was born under the zodiac sign of Pisces on 13 March 1965, in Atlanta, Georgia USA; he holds American nationality, and his ethnicity is African-American. He’s perhaps known best for his eponymous YouTube channel, launched on 20 May 2015, which is today subscribed to by nearly 1.5 million people, and all of his videos combined have gained nearly 300 million views.
Kevin mostly uploads videos featuring bits of advice about dating, lifestyle, and image makeovers, but although many people like his videos, there are some who disliked his video about women who are 35 and unmarried, whom he considers as ‘leftovers’.
Candace McDuffie, a blogger for The Root magazine, wrote about this video, asking ‘when will Kevin Samuels finally be canceled’, saying that he gained fame by disrespecting women, which Kevin hasn’t commented on.
Early life, family, and education
Kevin was raised in Atlanta by his parents, but prefers to keep information about them a secret, thus he hasn’t shared their names and occupations, and also he hasn’t spoken about having any siblings, so most of his fans assume that he was raised an only child. In one of his videos, Kevin mentioned that his parents divorced, and that he has a stronger bond with his mother.
Speaking of his educational background, he attended Millwood High School, and upon matriculating in 1983, he enrolled at The University of Oklahoma, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering in 1987.

After graduating, Kevin worked as a business manager and consultant for a few organizations, such as Supermedia/Idearc Media, and in 2013, he as a media and image consultant for clothing brand YP.
When he launched his YouTube channel, Kevin focused on themes about fashion, business, and social events, and subsequently started talking about dating, relationships, lifestyle, eventually proclaiming himself as Dating Guru and Life Coach.
His followers confirmed this by supporting his YouTube channel, and sharing his videos on other social media platforms, which initiated a new profession for Kevin, who is now a social media influencer, among other things.

Kevin hasn’t shared the names of women to whom he was married, but it is known that with one of them he has a daughter, born on 29 June 2000, whose name Kevin also hasn’t disclosed.
Rumors saying that Kevin is gay started after one of his live videos in which viewers noticed that there was a man in his bed; Kevin stated that he had pressed the wrong button during his live stream, and ended up by saying that the man who was sleeping on a bed was a troll who was in a call queue.
Some comments under the clip he posted were saying that he should just admit that he’s gay, that people didn’t believe his explanation, saying that he’d built a platform around tearing a woman down, and adding that he genuinely behaves like a feminine gay man, although there were many people who supported him.
