Joji George Miller is a musician and a comedian, and he has an Internet program called Filthy Frank. He is also a singer, record producer, rapper, and songwriter, as he is a man who likes to wear many different hats. He currently has a net worth of roughly $2 million, and he has made that money because he is a very prolific and talented young man.
His Early Life
Miller is of Japanese descent and was born on September 18, 1992 in Osaka, Japan. In 2012, he graduated from the Canadian Academy, and he created the Filthy Frank character on his YouTube channel entitled DizastaMusic. It is a comedic channel, but originally he created it to promote his music. In fact, very early on in his life, Miller showed an intense interest in music. He left Japan for the United States as soon as he turned 18.
As of this writing, Miller is single, and it doesn’t appear that he is dating anyone in particular. In addition to his Filthy Frank character and his music, he also adds other items on his YouTube channel, including features entitled “Japanese 101,” “Food,” “Loser Reads Hater Comments,” and “Wild Games.” In late 2017, Miller let his fans know that he will be stopping his series about Filthy Frank, due to “serious health conditions and lacking behind my personal interest.”
Naturally, when an adult is single and stays that way for a while, there are usually rumors about that person being gay, and Joji Miller is no different. However, his sexuality can be neither confirmed nor denied, so the rumors about his homosexuality should never be taken at face value. He is 6’ tall and has a slim build, and in fact, he is actually a very attractive man.
His Career Takes Off
Miller lives in Los Angeles and New York, and he sells merchandise such as t-shirts, hoodies, tank tops, and more. His YouTube account is very popular and has made him a lot of money, in part because he now has over six million viewers. In fact, he makes up to $40,000 per month due to his various business endeavors, and he seems to have a very good sense for business.
His YouTube channels include not only The Filthy Frank Show, but also TooDamnFilthy and DizastaMusic. Miller started these channels as a way to entertain others, and through them he has posted rap songs, extreme challenges, rants, and even performances on his ukulele. He even produced some comedy hip-hop music under the name Pink Guy, and his videos include a dance called the Harlem Shake, which went viral rather quickly.
Thanks to the Harlem Shake, a song of the same name made it in the Billboard top 100 hits. In late 2017, Miller started concentrating even more on his music career, where he goes simply by the name Joji. He has since released In Tongues, which peaked at number 58 on the Billboard top 200, as well as his debut album called Ballads 1, which reached the number one spot in November 2018 on Billboard’s top R&B and hip-hop chart, which is quite an accomplishment.
Many experts describe Miller’s music as a cross between R&B, lo-fi, and trip hop. He has also published a book entitled Francis of the Filth, and the Frank character has often been referred to as “the father of all comedy.” Highlights from his music career include his work as Pink Guy from 2014 to 2017, and by the single name Joji from 2017 to the present.
Miller’s intention was never to use YouTube as a way to create funny characters, however, but when the Filthy Frank series took off, he decided to roll with it. Under Pink Guy, he recorded an album entitled Peak Season, which made it to number 70 on the Billboard top 200. Under the name Joji, his songs have included Will He, Rain on Me, and Nomadic, the latter which was done with a Chinese rap group called Higher Brothers.
A Career Still Standing
In recent years, it has been disclosed that Miller is suffering from a neurological disorder that causes him to have seizures, but he is still concentrating on his music career. His achievements have included:
- Under Pink Guy, two albums: Pink Guy and Pink Season
- Under the name Joji, two albums: In Tongues and Ballads 1
- A total of eight videos as Pink Guy on DizastaMusic
- Over 45 videos as Pink Guy on TVFilthyFrank
- Over 40 videos as Pink Guy on TooDamnFilthy
His videos have enjoyed more than 380 million views total, which shows he knows what he is doing when it comes to making videos. In addition, he has a lot of different merchandise available with his pictures and logos on them, ranging from t-shirts to notebooks and even posters, tote bags, and phone cases.
This and That
These days, Miller is still working on his music, and you can research him online and find out more about his life, get the lyrics to his songs, and purchase products with his representation on them. He also has a presence on several social media sites, which allows you to keep up with everything he is currently doing. His book and albums are also found on sites such as Amazon, making them easy to purchase whenever you’re ready.
Whether intentional or not, Joji is a huge success, particularly with his music, and there doesn’t seem to be any stopping him now. Miller is a hard worker and very bright, so this star isn’t likely to fade away anytime soon.
