A Wakefield shop has been banned from TikTok after it was seen advertising cans of the new Prime for a whopping £100 each.

If you’ve been on the internet over the past couple of weeks, then there’s a very good chance you’ve heard of Prime Energy.

Created by famous influencers KSI and Logan Paul, the energy drink has been absolutely flying off the shelves at shops across the UK and has created quite the scene – with supermarkets such as Aldi and Asda having been ransacked of the stuff, and videos showing crowds of people emptying the shelves going viral online.

The huge demand for the drink has, as you would expect, seen the price for a can skyrocket.

Whereas the original price for a can of Prime is around the £1 mark, one shop in Wakefield has been selling them for upwards of £100, The Hoot reports.


Taking to social media and going viral in the process, Wakey Wines has been seen filming their customers proudly declaring how much they have spent, with some of them even admitting they have travelled hundreds of miles just to get their hands on a can of Prime from the shop – however, things quickly took a downward turn.

The owners of Wakey Wines revealed at the weekend that TikTok has banned their account.


In a statement shared to Instagram, Wakey Wines claimed that it was all just a bit of “fun” and that an influencer was trying to ruin their business.

The statement reads in full: Wakey Wines said: “Hi guys, today there is a well known influencer trying to tarnish my business I have been building up for years. I have now been banned off TikTok at 500k, I’ve been working so hard for this.

“All of my videos are all for fun, I saw a business idea with WFD sweets just like any other business man and I took the opportunity.
