JusReign interview at YouTube Fan Fest 2015

For the first time ever, Toronto was the host of the 2015 YouTube FanFest and what an unforgettable show it was! The Yonge-Dundas Square welcomed some of the biggest Canadian and international YouTube superstars and brought them live on one stage. Our host Darriel Roy had a chance to speak with Jasmeet Singh (JusReign).

Jasmeet Singh began making videos and short sketches when he was in university because he needed a creative outlet.  Singh decided to call his YouTube channel, JusReign and soon after his videos began to go viral, people referred to him by the name of the channel itself and since then he's gathered over 560,000 subscribers. JusReign’s success on YouTube has definitely surprised the rising online creator but what I personally admire about his authenticity is that he simply had a goal in mind and acted on it. “I wanted to be the first brown guy on YouTube so I did that!” JusReign’s advice to those seeking to be YouTubers – “Don’t do it, be a doctor and make your parents happy…just kidding…you got to be wanting to do it!"

Lilly Singh interview at 2015 YouTube FanFest

For the first time ever, Toronto was the host of the 2015 YouTube FanFest and what an unforgettable show it was! The Yonge-Dundas Square welcomed some of the biggest Canadian and international YouTube superstars and brought them live on one stage. We had a chance to speak with Lilly Singh (Superwoman).

Lilly Singh, began her career as a YouTuber in October of 2010 and has since gathered over 730 million views and her channel has over 5.96 million subscribers. According to Singh, the top three attributing factors to her rise in fame is first and foremost “positivity” in her material, “consistency” and finally “relate-ability”. Lilly’s advice to those that want to be a future YouTuber like herself is “Don’t try to go viral…it has to be a very genuine, passionate thing that you’re starting.”
