Top 10 YouTubers in Malaysia & Singapore
WAH! Banana is my favourite youtube channel in this list. They are supported by Garena where they work as LoL commentators. Djehuty and Foxy started this video channel on their own with the help of their friend Elliot who guest stars in most of their videos. What I like most about them is the writing that is always super tight and refined.
The best by a mile so far has to be their recent collaboration with Ming from The Ming Thing where it takes on more of a short film romantic comedy vibe. I felt it was a breakthrough that opened up artistic possibilities of a whole other level.
Munah and Hiriz
I adore this Singaporean duo, who are currently studying at university. Especially Hirizi who I feel is a comedic genius. As someone who does not watch TV, I first came across them a few months ago on their Munah and Hiriz listing.
Yes they got their own TV show, fame would find people like them sooner or later. And I am glad their channel is helping elevate them further. Bringing them overseas like to USA, Malaysia, etc. And I am glad to see them branching out into theater too. They describe themselves on their channel as “The founding prince and princess of Singapore’s Youtube scene!” and I could not agree more. An inspiration to all Singapore youtubers. My favourite series are the ones with their dares.
Click Network TV
Actually this is under Munkysuperstar Pictures, is the brainchild of Singaporean entrepreneur Gillian Tan. She started the company as a one-woman-show armed with just $10,000 and a mini video camera.
Today they have over 74,000 youtube subscribers and are one of Singapore’s biggest and most loved channels. Some of their popular shows are Xiaxue’s Guide to Life and Budget Barbie with most of their viewer base being ladies. Which is no surprise since Gillian helms this and she is an inspiration to aspiring female entrepreneurs.
Jinny boy TV
It is a new Malaysian channel which was launched in the year 2012, but this channel has enormous following of over 187,000 subscribers. Through this channel you can watch the short films which was may by them and this channel has an application. Even you can purchase the T shirts of this channels that are available in the market.
Dan khoo Productions
Dan Khoo is a Malaysian who acts and directs his own shows, Through his videos he likes to tell different kind of stories about love, political and social. His videos makes him one of the most populated You Tubers in Singapore and Malaysia.
Ming (The Ming Thing)
Ming’s acting is simple and natural which makes us attractive I think he has more talent in front of screen rather than behind the camera and also he has fantastic control over his voice. Its no surprise to learn he is also vocalist of its brand called Skyward. He recently did a cool collaboration with Singaporeans.
Ryan Sylvia are the names of Night Owl Cinematics founders Ryan Tan and Sylvia Chan, a group of fun loving full-time cinematographers. They do commercial work like MTVs and wedding videos but in their free time make fun videos with Singaporean themes. My favourite video of theirs which got me instantly hitting the subscribe button was the hilarious ‘Shit Singaporean Girlfriends say’.
Bryan is an Malaysian self tough hobby cinematographer who turns his passion into hobby in some thing more serious in his hobby in something more serious. My favourite movie video of his is the ‘Leap of Faith’ short. I love how he captured the vulnerability of the narration and the ending is so natural and perfect. He is part of ‘The Ming Thing’ and Ming often stars in his videos. They make a great combination.
