Interview W/ Shitsawii – Vlogging Arab

I am sure the majority of you have seen the videos of “Shitsawii” already – Plus, I have posted about him a couple of weeks back (link). The guy is funny in his own way… he’s charismatic and grabbed the attention of many in such a short time. He can easily make me laugh without trying too hard! I immediately subscribed to his YouTube channel after watching a couple of videos… I wanted to know more, and wanted to share it with you on my blog… so here goes my interview with Shitsawii 😉

Tell me about yourself! What do you do? What are you really doing in Miami? Living? Studying? Having a “free” year before you start work? Whats up with that?

Just a regular guy finishing up my last year of studies in the States. Looking to get a decent education and boogie on down back to Kuwait. Oh! And maybe make a change in this world somehow? 😛

If you had to describe yourself in ONE word, what would it be… and why?

This one is a toughie! I would say “Understanding” because I think the whole process of living away from home.  Forces you to break out of this self-made ‘bubble’ Kuwait has created.

Instead of taking offense to everything, why not just listen?

I think making the effort to understand someone is so essential.    Our culture seems to block out anything that is not considered “normal” according to society.  Which is truly a shame.

Doesn’t matter how smart you are, or how much you know.  There is always something out there you are bound to learn.

What got you into YouTube! I know you said it was for giving a better image to Arab peeps, and for your lil bro.. but how did it happen! How the idea was born?

The idea gave birth already, I just stole the kid and made it my own. (Ok.. makes no sense.) lol.

Everything happens for a reason.  And whatever, I’ve been through in life has led me to doing it.  I’ve always wanted to make movies or be a director.  But people laughed at me.

Despite the negativity, One day just ended up trying something, and seemed to work out nicely! 🙂

What makes you different than other vloggers? (yes you are different) – you gained popularity so fast… why is that? Whats your secret? Besides you being a “cutie pie”

Why so popular so fast?   The girls…  They seemed to have contributed the most to the popularity.  Word on the street is I’ve become the next Muhanad? But Kuwaiti version?  Don’t ask…


Maybe people just like me as a person?

I might be stepping out of the box when it comes to comedy, which people find intriguing.

Why did you pick the sarcastic/comedic take?

Full credit to my Uncle, this guy is one of the funniest people I know but his use of sarcasm is like an artist painting his masterpiece.  Pure skill.

As a kid we hung out in their house almost everyday.  So may have picked up on it and stuck with me every since.  By far, the coolest uncle EVER!

Why sarcasm you ask?  Because people never know what your thinking.  Just go with the routine smile and nod.  Keeps you out of trouble. 😛

Do you have a twitter account?

I do BUT!  My cousin kind of runs it, since I got 100 things going on at once.  So just a heads up, its @VlogginArab

How are you liking the response to your videos?

Its Awesome, when you get people saying things like “OMG, you are amazing!!!”

Then it sucks, when people post negative comments and place immediate judgment without even trying to understand my point of view.

Just like anyone in the public eye.  You get haters and you get fans, just part of the cycle.

To be honest, not used to people “not liking me” in general.  But there’s always a first.  In my case more than a first. Lol.

Any surprises you wanna share with my blog readers?

Surprises?  I like soft things.

Not yet really, I just hope I’ll be around long enough to be able to make some sort of positive change back home.  That would be the ultimate achievement.

Oh! I just wanted to say what you got going here is pretty cool.  Been going through your blog.  You just got yourself a new fan.

So Kudos to you and the readers for bringing us all together.
