Popular Facebook vlogger Nas Daily, whose real name is Nusseir Yassin, is presumably quite fond of Singapore.
The social media icon has been documenting his travels around the world, with his daily one-minute videos quickly becoming a signature of his.
In these videos, Nas covers a whole wide range of topics, from the wacky to the serious.
This was no different when he was in Singapore in August, with his first video about the Republic being about why he “hates it”.
Despite the title, Nas has come across as incredibly interested in the culture and people of Singapore.
He even got Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to make an appearance in his latest video about the country – the 14th video he has broadcasted to his eight million followers.

1.5 years ago…I was in Singapore, at this exact location celebrating 100,000 followers alone. I had a feeling it was gonna be my last celebration because it was so hard to get to 100k that I didn’t think it’s possible to reach 200k. It honestly felt impossible. But I kept on making these videos: the good, the bad, the shallow and the average. Day after day after day. It was excruciating, but it was also the most meaningful thing I could imagine doing. And today, here we are at the exact same spot celebrating 8 million followers and meeting the Prime Minister of Singapore – one of the most powerful people in the world who also happens to watch Nas Daily. It’s amazing what obsessive, hard work and luck can get you. 128 days to go to finish this 1,000 day journey. And it’s only gonna get harder. Thank you for the picture and the ride: @projectnightfall
The amount of videos he has made about Singapore is a testament to how much Nas enjoys the country, so take a look at all 14 videos he’s made during his time in the country.
