Nas Daily Says He Wasn’t Paid For Singapore Trip After Netizen Backlash

Nas Daily Clearly Loved His Time In Singapore

His videos might be loved around the world, but Nas Daily was hated on by local netizens after 8 videos that showed Singapore in a positive light.

The YouTuber – famed for his 1-minute features of global cities – responded to criticism that he was paid to be overly positive about Singapore.

In a Facebook statement, the 26-year-old Isreali deemed these allegations to be “unfounded” and insisted that he paid for his Singapore trip himself.

Addressing comments that his videos about Singapore were “overly positive”, Nas claimed that there wasn’t much he could do about it. That’s because to him, Singapore, has “some stuff figured out that many countries don’t”.

And his videos aim to showcase “the best of the world”, rather than the negative aspects that mainstream media that chooses to focus on.

He also dedicated one video to breaking stereotypes on how rich Singaporeans are.
