Wakey Wines owner sends message to followers after returning to TikTok following ban
| Last updated
The owner of the controversial Wakey Wines has shared a message with fans after returning to TikTok with a new account.
Ever the salesman, he was soon back on the sales trail following the ban, this time with his WFD sweets - which he encouraged viewers to buy from him.
"Hi everybody. This is my new account, WFD_sweets. Come and get my sweets. They've got me into a lot of trouble. Certain people have got me blocked," he admitted.
"This is my ninth account. I'm gonna keep on going. Thank you for your support. Follow me."
He then gestured to a statue of Buddha in the room where he was filming, which he had placed a bag of sweets behind.
While the video was posted an hour ago, the account itself is not new and features multiple other videos from the shopkeeper, including footage of customers with their Prime Energy drinks.
The shopkeeper is doing a roaring trade of the drinks - created by YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI - and he proudly shared footage on his old account of a woman who paid £1,200 for her fix.
However, while Wakey Wines might be benefiting from the mass demand for the drink, even one of its creators, KSI, said it's not worth paying more than the retail price of £2 for.
He said: "No do not pay that much for Prime, I know people want Prime OK, just wait or camp out Asda nice and early, get in Asda nice and early and pay £2, OK, £2 for prime.
"£2 is way better than £25 bro, why. Come on man this is outrageous. You should not be paying £25 for one bottle of Prime [sic]."
Reacting to Wakey Wines' return to TikTok on Instagram, one fan wrote: "Some people hate to see you winning, even if you are charging hectic amounts, who's telling them to purchase it off you. #jealousy"
A second added: "Everyone moaning at him doesn’t have a problem shopping in Aldi the king of ripping brands."
Meanwhile, a third questioned why the newsagent appeared to wear the same tracksuit in all of his videos.
"Brother have you not got another tracksuit?" they questioned. "With all them 100 pounds a can prime that's losing the colour big man [sic]."
At the time of writing, the WFD_sweets TikTok account has over 20,000 followers and counting.
