How did Jujimufu and Tom meet?
Jujimufu and Tom first connected in 2012 and filmed their first video together in 2013.
Tom was looking for advice on Tricks Tutorials forums and Jujimufu taught Tom how to backflip, which sparked their friendship.
Speaking to Tom in 2018, Juji said: “When I did the tricking thing and I met people at gatherings and events, there’s always one person that I meet at these things, they’d stick in my mind, you were that guy during that trip“.
Why did Jujimufu part ways with Tom?
On March 19th 2021, Jujimufu took to YouTube to share a video explaining that he and Tom had “parted ways”.
Addressing the curiosity surrounding the fact that Tom and Juji haven’t been posting many videos recently, Jujimufu said: “I have decided to part ways with Tom. I have not come to this decision hastily or lightly. Continued collaboration with Tom is no longer possible.”
While some were hoping that the news wasn’t true. The “Jujimufu and Tom” YouTube channel has been renamed “Jujimufu” which confirms further than Juji is being serious in his video.
A Twitter user suggested that Juji and Tom may no longer be able to collaborate due to legal or financial reasons, however, these claims are unconfirmed and neither Juji, nor Tom, have released any details on why they have parted ways.
Tom took to Twitter on March 20th to let his fans know how he was doing: “I’m ok. Making videos again soon, thanks for the support“. It’s unclear exactly why Tom and Juji have gone their separate ways, but both have stated that they’ll now be making videos on their own.
