He tells The Guardian: “It isn’t a big deal. It doesn’t make a difference.”
In fact the star is actually 25-years-old, with Companies House records listing his birth date as May 1993.
Fans may be surprised to learn Elijah’s real age, with some assuming the shirt and tie he wears in videos is a school uniform.
Elijah shot to fame back in 2016 after videos of his witty in-depth reviews of London’s chicken shops went viral.

Channel 4 Elijah has expanded his horizons and will review ‘everything’ on his new show
If a dish is impressive enough, he’ll brand it “peng”, which is slang for great.
The outspoken critic travels to various fast food chicken shops in London, testing the texture of the chicken and reviewing the crunchiness of the chips before giving them a rating out of five.
And it seems Elijah’s success has spread far enough for him to be recognised on the street.
He tells the Guardian: “I get seen and spotted everywhere, I can’t do the normal stuff.
“Going to a shop or the post office and not getting hassled, that is a privilege I don’t have any more.
“It’s long. If I’m walking past a school, I get caught.”

His success prompted Channel Four to commission him with his own show The Peng Life which sees him widening his horizons to review “everything” all over the world.
But so he doesn’t seem too impressed with some of the luxurious trappings he samples on the new show.
After trying out the most expensive kebab in the world – priced at £925 – he branded the pricey Wagyu beef “the same as regular beef”.
