YouTube: 2018’s Top Malaysian Creators On The Rise

Check out these channels started in 2018 that have accumulated the most subscribers

YouTube Malaysia today released its selection of Malaysian YouTube creators and channels on the rise for 2018. This list presents the 10 channels that are barely a year old but have already seen huge subscriber growth throughout the year till November. We celebrate these mainly young and super talented individuals and groups that keep us entertained, informed and best of all — make us think.

The top two YouTubers share similarities in that they leverage on video games to create addictive animated shorts that span a variety of styles. Robe Cube’s horror-themed series, which features some monsterrific scenarios and challenges set in the Minecraft universe, has dramatically propelled their growth, while Daisy데이지 can thank their unique use of the Gachaverse game to showcase a number of anime-inspired episodic shows.

Other notable creators include Faris Eddy Viral TV where fans of YouTube skits would feel right at home, Easya Vaazhalam whose life hacks are useful for streamlining daily house chores, as well as Chanel Kang and her immense love for TikTok dancing.

The rest of the Top 10 covers a spectrum of entertainment topics, offering a mix of music and gossip, to food and motorcycles, from both individuals and groups that look to push creativity to the forefront and add a distinct Malaysian flavor to the online video platform.
