-The Influencers - Mohamed Beiraghdary (Mo Vlogs)
The man behind the mind-bending successful daily vlog series MoVlogs, Beiraghdary shot to fame largely thanks to his fanatical interest in the luxury cars of Dubai. The highly likeable (and charismatic) 22-year-old has quickly become a YouTube star, with his daily episodes regularly passing 750,000 views each.
What do you think makes you stand out?
I feel like I share everything. I don’t shy away from being weird on camera, I just put it all out there and I think people like that sincerity.
Who influences you?
I watch a lot of YouTube, which is how I got into vlogging in the first place. If it’s on YouTube, then I’ve probably seen it! I stalk all the other guys doing similar things and then I put my own personal twist on my videos.
Who is your style icon?
I have horrible style. I normally don’t look this good! I dress terribly, I don’t want to embarrass anybody by saying that I look up to their style!
Why does YouTube work best for you?
I do daily vlogs, which work best told in a longer format. It allows me to create more engaging content and that is why I prefer YouTube over other social media platforms.
What is next for you?
This year has a lot more business stuff happening for me. I’m going to spend a lot of the year trying to transfer what I do on a video level into the real world, so stay tuned.
