Desmond Daniel Amofah (born: May 12, 1990 (1990-05-12) [age 28]), known on YouTube as Etika, is a YouTuber who streams on YouTube, and sometimes uploads discussion videos about video games or other topics. He reads donation messages in his live streams and often has to turn them off because he gets spammed with donations and can't actually play the game. Sometimes he would unlist them soon after the stream gets finished, mostly because it seems inappropriate to him, or for personal reasons, and so some YouTube users, who are his stream moderators, upload highlights from it.

  • "No, no, that's not the fight. That is not the fight. No, that's not the fight. That is not the f-cking fight right there, no it is not."
  • "You are not f*cking serious, chat, you are not f*cking serious. That is not what the f*ck the fight is, no no no, you- you are n*ggering me."

  • Etika once got lost in South Carolina. During that time, he claims to have possibly seen a supernatural ghost whisper to him in the video where he announced he got lost. He later made a tweet confirming he was okay and feeling merry about things. He also deleted the two videos that were related to the ghost and denies this event ever occurred.
  • He briefly changed his channel name to Young Ramsay Network in 2015 after cooking scallops and being inspired by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, whom he renamed his channel temporarily after. Soon afterward, Ramsay himself started following Etika on Twitter.

  • Etika doesn't keep promises.
  • Etika used to be a model until he started his YouTube channel. 
  • Etika got $25 from Sony after suing them.
  • In the early 2000s, he played Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine and reacted maniacally when it reappeared in the 2017 Sonic game, Sonic Mania which he doesn't seem to be very good at.
  • Etika once used the Brooklyn Nets introduction video as his own intro, with him running around like an idiot playing with his yo-yo and jumping on the ice. However, now that the Nets are considered the worst franchise in the NBA, he has since abandoned the intro, due to his bandwagon status.
  • Etika once choked on a sandwich whilst reacting the professional Smash 4 player ZeRo's video "Peanuts"

  • Etika had an old YouTube channel under the name of TR1Iceman in which he created in 2006 (Although, his first video on the channel wasn't until 2007). He used this channel before he switched to his main channel. This channel was the origin of the Iceman Etika meme.
  • In Etika's live stream of his reaction to the entire character roster for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, his heart rate reached over the 180s a few times, with his highest being 188. Etika was 4 bpm away from having a heart attack (Having a heart attack would reach to 192 bpm).
