Created by 20-something YouTube stars Logan Paul (from Ohio) and KSI (aka Olajide Olatunji from Hertfordshire), have a combined social media following of 140 million, Prime has fuelled a sales rampage

He went on to attack his ‘haters’ saying he had ‘nothing to hide’. He added: ‘I’m still here, you won’t get rid of me, mate.’ 

Mr Nazir previously spent eight years behind bars, having been jailed in 2015 for dealing heroin and crack cocaine. 

In a previous video posted to his account, he addressed his criminal past and apologised after admitting it had been the ‘biggest mistake’ he ever made.

In January 2022, he told his social media following: ‘In 2015, I was selling drugs, I was doing wrong… I made the biggest mistake of my life.

‘I came out of prison in 2019, I have changed my life around. I don’t have [sic] nothing to do with Class A drugs, I work hard for my money now.

‘I was that [a drug dealer] in the past. I was the biggest numpty you could ever meet… I made the biggest mistake selling drugs and I regret that to this day.’

The newsagents went viral on TikTok with a video showing a woman pay £145 for six bottles of Prime. Other videos showed a group of girls who had travelled 133 miles from Carlisle, Cumbria, to Wakefield. 

The online account was temporarily banned after it emerged he was flogging the £1.99 energy drink Prime for upwards of £100 per bottle.

In the viral videos, customers are seen posing with bottles of Prime which is sold for just £2 at major retailers – that they have reportedly bought for hugely inflated prices.

In one clip, a female customer boasts how she paid more than £1,200 for cans of the energy drink as the shop’s proprietor prompts her to describe his business as the best in all of Wakefield.

He wrote on Twitter: ‘Wakey Wines is charging people £20 per Prime. £145. Fam you’re getting ripped off.

‘Why is she doing this? No do not pay that much for Prime.

 ‘£2 is way better than £25 bro. Come on this is outrageous. You should not be paying £25 for one bottle of prime.’
