Top 4 most popular vloggers and why OFWs in UAE love them

by | Feature

Many netizens today are turning to social media to talk about anything in front of their webcam, be it their personal reactions to what’s happening in the Philippine politics or showbiz. But overseas Filipino vloggers (short for video bloggers) will never accept to be just by the wayside. They’re one of the most watched, liked and loved on social media.

While others do it to earn extra, they all share a noble goal – to help thousands of OFWs ease their longing for families, as well as the hardship of the life abroad. Thanks to their funny yet full of wit and wisdom videos, Filipinos miles away from home now feel they’re not alone.

Here are the top 4 most watched vloggers on social media:

1. Joel Villanueva Mondina

Better known as Pambansang Kolokoy to his followers and subscribers, Mondina was born in La Union and moved to the United States in 1994. More than 10 years after he migrated there, he started a Facebook fan page with his son, Chris Jian, called “Father/Son Duo”, wherein they posted videos. Thanks to his comic personality, his videos made it to local television shows in the Philippines, like Mga Kuwento Ni Marc Logan,TV Patrol, among others.

His personal Facebook page, which has now over 200,000 followers, contains lots of videos of himself with his family that’ll make you smile, or more… laugh. In any case, it’s tongue-in-cheek for sure! The most liked videos on his page are the ones shot with his straightforward but loving wife.

2. Eris Justine Rosas

His good looks might be enough to get everyone’s attention, but it is his relatable OFW experiences and stories which make him become more appealing to netizens. In case you didn’t know, Rosas, or more popularly known as Epoy to his online followers, moved to Florida, USA in 2015 when he was only 21 years old. The videos that he posts on his YouTube channel, which has over 18,000 subscribers, mostly tell about the misconceptions about OFW life. He has also been featured in GMA’s “Reel Time” documentary.

Watch his “Mga ganap kapag OFW ka” and let us know which of the things he identified hits you the most.

3. Junie Franco Sorsano

Junie Franco Sorsano is a vlogger and social media personality based in Dubai who owns the YouTube channel titled “Buhay sa Dubai” which has now over 12,000 subscribers and counting! Here, he posts several skits and vlogs about his experiences as well as some pieces of advise to aspiring OFWs in the UAE. As of this writing, his videos have collectively gained over 2.8 million views.

And because of his elaborate discussion on what it takes to live and work in Dubai, he has been recognized multiple times for his works, including nominations on The Filipino Times Awards for Media Personality and New Media Personality of the Year.

One of his most popular videos, titled “9 tips and guides to become a successful OFW”, has gained over 186,000 views.
Let us know which of his tips in the video is the most applicable for you!

4. Dhiane Bobz Khulet

Unlike the first three men, Dhiane Bobz Khulet does not have a YouTube channel. She mainly uses her Facebook account to upload her comic videos which all gain thousands of views. Her most watched video, which has now been seen by over 115,000 views, tells about how OFWs eat when their employers are around.
