Asian stars on Youtube

Youtube has helped catapulted many ordinary internet users into self made celebs and amongst them are quite a few Asian Youtube stars who are often ranked highly on the popularity/subscription list. There's Nigahiga, Kevjumba, Winekone, gunnarolla, mychonny like him or loathe him; Peter Chao and many more. Mostly hailing from the US or Canada and even Australia. So do we British Chinese/SE Asians have our own equivalent Youtube celebs? Well here's a few I can think of:

Kwai Chi:


Cherry Chan:


Although they're no where near as popular as our US cousins so they're hardly well known, but it's nice to see fellow BBCs and Asians getting their thoughts, voice and faces on the net. To some Youtube isn't just about trying out for their 15 minutes of fame, it's also a platform to share with us their views as individuals and being part of the East Asian community in Britain. As well as of course providing us entertainment. Considering we rarely get much coverage in the mainstream media (without the stereotypical cliches) the internet is fantastic medium to bring awareness to the community that is quite often known to be 'invisible'.

There maybe a few more that I have yet to discover, but for now please support these fellow Youtubers by subscribing to them or even greater become a Youtube Vlogger yourself and share your thoughts with the web community through representing our community.
