Jamie Adenuga (born May 4, 1985 (1985-05-04) [age 32]), better known as his stage name JME or YouTube name ManBetterKnow, is an English MC and YouTube personality. He is one of the creators of the Sidemen.

Background Edit

Adenuga was born in Hackney, into a family who are originally from Nigeria. He grew up in Tottenham, North London where he lived in a council house. He attended St. Paul's School and then Winchmore School in Winchmore Hill, Enfield along with his brother Skepta.

Adenuga subsequently graduated from University of Greenwich receiving First Class Honours in 3D Digital Design.

JME has a YouTube channel called ManBetterKnow, which has over 300,000 subscribers. Although many know him as JME, other MCs and some fans know him as Jamie.


Jme started out producing by making mobile phone ringtones. He later used Mario Paint, Game Boy Camera, Fruity Loops, and then a mixture of Pro Tools and Logic Studio.

Jme also co-owns with Uptown Records, his own T-shirt chain, bearing the labels of himself, his record label Boy Better Know, and his dormant nightclub Straight Outta Bethnal.

He released his debut album Famous? and an album through a major label with the whole of Boy Better Know.

Jme released a single "Over Me" in September 2009. He followed this single with another, "Sidetracked", which featured Wiley followed by "CD is Dead", that featured Tempa T. These three singles are featured on his second studio album, Blam!, which was released on 4 October 2010. His most recent album is Integrity which was released on 4th May 2015.

JME also has a new song with YouTuber and friend KSI, titled "Keep Up", which has more than 33 million views on YouTube, as of August 2017.

Affiliations with the Sidemen Edit

Despite being relatively unknown within the Sidemen fanbase, he has commonly been labelled as an "official" member of the group - most notably by miniminter in a Q&A video. JME has participated in multiple real-life challenges with the Sidemen, such as Ethan's quickfire crossbar challenge and Simon's "power challenge". He has had his music used in several Sidemen videos. His most recent video with the group was a Cards Against Humanity video.

There are, however, videos dating back to late 2013 and early 2014 that show JME playing Grand Theft Auto V with other Sidemen
