Arguably the best streaming site, YouTube has come a long way since its start in 2005. You could credit a big part of YouTube’s success to their user friendly interface. However, we cannot neglect the role YouTubers, Youtube’s very own community has created in shaping the platform we see today.
You might ask, what is the exact definition of YouTubers? The dictionary definition of YouTubers is “a person who uploads, produces, or appears in videos on the video-sharing website YouTube”. However, we think that YouTubers are so much more. They can be celebrities, yet many of them are the people around us.
Unlike traditional celebrities, a YouTuber can be anyone. They are also many types of YouTubers for instance fashion, sports, gadget Youtubers.
Today’s article will touch on the YouTubers in our small island country, in short, Singaporean YouTubers. Continue reading to find out who made our list of 2020 YouTubers.

Dominic started his YouTube channel in 2010 to upload his covers of pop and R&B songs. A fun fact about him is that his tribute song to the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew has been watched by our PM Lee Hsien Loong. In fact, the prime minister even sent Dominic a very personal thank you email!
