Career

While still in school, Payne created the "Behzinga" YouTube channel on February 24, 2012. He explained that the class='entity-link' id='suggestBtn-16'>name was inspired by Sheldon Cooper's catchphrase "Bazinga!" from his favourite television show, The Big Bang Theory but Payne changed the spelling.


Video game commentary from the Call of Duty and FIFA series predominated his early content although his content has evolved over time to include football, comedic, and fitness videos. “Behzinga Intro” is the first video on Payne’s channel and in the video, he shows the intro to his videos.

Payne and four other British YouTubers came together to form the entertainment group Ultimate Sidemen on October 19, 2013, which was later abbreviated to Sidemen. Seven British YouTubers, including Vikram Barn (Vikkstar123), Joshua Bradley (Zerkaa), Tobi Brown (TBJZL), Harry Lewis (W2S), Simon Minter (Miniminter), JJ Olatunji (KSI), and Payne, have been a part of the group since 2014. The group also sells only Sidemen merchandise and creates online videos that frequently feature challenges, sketches, and video-game commentary.


He played the lead role in the three-part YouTube Originals documentary series How to Be Behzinga about his battle with depression and his journey to running the London Marathon to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. The series premiered in October 2020. He admitted that he had struggled with alcoholism in the past and had considered suicide but was able to overcome his problems with the help of the other Sidemen. He had also lost 36 kilogrammes over a period of time between 2018 and 2019.
