Here's Why Kandi Burruss’ Son Ace Wells Tucker Started His Own YouTube Channel
Kandi Burruss' 7-year-old son, Ace, is taking after his mom with a successful YouTube channel of his own promoting (what else!) toys and fun.
He may only be 7 years old but Kandi Burruss’ son Ace Wells Tucker is already making a name for himself on YouTube.
The pint-sized entrepreneur has already amassed more than 17,000 followers on his YouTube Channel Ace Plays and Giveaways, where he gives a glimpse into his life and shares tips and toys with his “best friends on YouTube.”
Proud mom Kandi checked in with Ace about the channel’s growing popularity on SWV & XSCAPE: The Queens of R&B, airing Sundays at 9:30/8:30c on Bravo.
“Ace, how many people do you have subscribed to your YouTube channel now?” she asked.
“17,261,” Ace told his awestruck mom as the family relaxed in their Atlanta home.
“OK, little, turn up,” Ace’s dad, Todd Tucker, teased.
Kandi, who is not only a member of the chart-topping R&B band XSCAPE but is also a castmate on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, announced Ace’s YouTube channel on her own Instagram account in January 2020.
“Guess what?! @acetucker has started his own Youtube channel called Ace Plays And Giveaways!” she wrote. “Ace’s channel is fun content for kids. Every week Ace will be playing & giving away toys or tickets to events that are kid friendly to one of his subscribers that watches & comments on his page. Subscribe now because he’ll be posting a new video soon!”
To drive home the message, Kandi included an irresistible video of an almost 4-year-old Ace making a plea to potential subscribers.
“All I want for my birthday is for you guys to subscribe to my channel,” he said.
More than three years later, Ace continues to deliver to his online fans and “best friends on YouTube,” as he calls them, providing videos of him unboxing toys, instructing his peers on the best way to make cheesy bread, or providing a behind-the-scenes look at his life.
His most recent video features the 7-year-old unboxing a slime kit and then sharing how to make it.
“Guys, we're making slime,” he said, before momentarily getting distracted and showing his fans “how to fly.”
“OK, I’m back. I almost went to the moon because my flying power is so bad,” he said before continuing on with the project.
Ace likely inherited his online savvy from his mom, Kandi, who has her own successful YouTube channel, KandiOnline, where she’s garnered more than 600,000 subscribers.
Just like his mom, Ace has found a way to relate to his growing fan base online — but with his own unique take.
“Have a great 2023 and have a good school year,” he concluded in his slime tutorial. “Do good. Tell your mom and dad that you love watching YouTube if you do. Have a great time! Bye!”
It’s no surprise Ace is a natural in front of the camera. Last year in The Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi took Ace to an acting coach and revealed he had “a lot of auditions” in his burgeoning pursuit to become a child star.
“Ace, I always say, that's our can-do-it-all baby,” Kandi told The Daily Dish last year. “That boy is good at everything he tries. He's open to try [anything]... pretty much anything he tries to do, he's pretty good at it.”
To catch more of Kandi and her family tune in to SWV & XSCAPE: The Queens of R&B, airing Sundays at 9:30/8:30c on Bravo or available streaming the next day on Peacock.
