Social media star, JiDion, posts first YouTube video since deleting channel to focus on his Christian faith

by Lydia Davies

After dedicating two months to his Christian faith, popular content creator JiDion has made a significant return to YouTube with his first major content release since his hiatus.

In February 2024, JiDion briefly reactivated his YouTube channel with a video lasting just two minutes, which he did not consider a genuine comeback. His latest video, DeMarcus cousins hangs out with a former Yakuza member, which runs for over 20 minutes, attracted tens of thousands of views on the day it was published.

The new video showcases an experience in Japan that JiDion captured while on holiday there.

He shared with his audience: "No one asked for this. This was just random and fun from my trip to Japan. Hope you enjoyed it!"

This release comes after JiDion announced in September 2023 that he would be stepping back from YouTube and removing all prank video content, as it conflicted with his personal beliefs and Christian faith.

Explaining his decision, JiDion stated in a video: "If I'm gonna truly give my life over to God, I gotta also take out the wickedness that I put into the world." He openly reflected on his influence, admitting, "As an influencer, I failed this generation horribly...I can't be the way I was anymore, and I won't ever be the way I was anymore…So, if you won't cut me off, I need to cut myself off from you."

While it's still uncertain if JiDion will fully return to regular content creation on YouTube, this new video signifies his first substantial upload in two months following a period focused on personal and spiritual growth.
