ApoRed’s real name is Ahmad Nadim Ahadi and he has Afghan roots. He became known primarily through Let’s Plays on YouTube and his channel had over 2 million subscribers at times. He is often criticized for different content, conflicts with other YouTubers and so-called “pranks” and “clickbaiting”. His gaming channel “RedSama” was deleted at the end of 2019. His new main channel currently has around 132,000 subscribers and his new gaming channel around 201,000 subscribers. He describes himself as an entertainer, rapper, model and designer.
ApoRed was born on March 12, 1994 in Hamburg to Afghan parents. He has an older brother who also uploads videos to YouTube. Not much is known about his childhood and youth.
In 2011 he started his YouTube channel ApoRed with Let’s Plays mainly for the computer game “Call of Duty”.
In 2011 he started uploading Let’s Plays to YouTube. In 2015 he switched to Lifestyle Videos and invited various other YouTubers to his videos. In the same year, ApoRed released his first rap video “Photoshop” which was viewed almost 30 million times. His second release “Everyday Saturday” broke the negative record on YouTube and received over 900,000 “dislikes”. A video intended to portray this release as a “prank” and a real music video released later also received little more positive reaction.
In July 2016 “Numero Uno” was released. At the end of March 2017, ApoRed published “Babawagen” that a short time later he again declared as a “prank”, this time on the occasion of April 1st. Shortly thereafter, “Range Rover Mansory” was released. In June 2017 he released “Yalla Habibi”. “Lambo Gallardo” and “Billo” are his latest releases. The “Baba” tour was planned for December 2017, but was cancelled.
Also since 2015 he released some “Prank” videos. His most famous video of this kind from 2016 brought him a suspended sentence and 200 hours of work. In other videos, he lets himself be locked up with friends in various public buildings, including McDonald’s, Ikea, Cinemaxx and a school, and spends 24 hours there. At least three companies have filed criminal charges against ApoRed and his companions. In October 2019, he made all videos private on his main channel.
On October 25th, 2019 he uploaded his first video about a “don’t laugh challenge” on a newly opened channel “ApoRed”. The following videos have different amounts of money in the title.
In November 2017 he launched his gaming channel “RedSama”. On this channel he uploaded Let’s Plays about the computer game “Fortnite” until it was deleted at the end of 2019. “Fortnite” requested the deletion of this channel because ApoRed would offer illegal content for this computer game. At the end of 2019, the channel was finally deleted.
On October 12, 2019, the first video about Fortnite appeared on the newly opened gaming channel “RedSama” of the same name. All of the following videos are also Let’s Plays about “Fortnite”.
ApoRed understood very early on that controversy and “clickbait” videos could quickly attract a lot of attention and he made videos accordingly.
His rap videos received more negative than positive reviews on YouTube. Above all, his second release “Everyday Saturday” is a highlight in a negative sense. Overall, his videos get more dislikes than likes, making him one of the most disliked YouTubers in the world.
He probably got the most media attention in 2016 when he threw a bag at a group of people for a video and shouted that there was a bomb in it and that everyone should run if they wanted to continue living. Since an attack on Nice was carried out the day before, the publication was criticized all the more on social media. A short time later, an apology video was uploaded in which he exposed this act as a joke. Up until this point, the uninitiated victims didn’t know it was just a hoax. Some of the uninitiated victims in this video suffered severe, permanent mental illnesses in the form of anxiety disorders, among other things. In addition, they were not defaced in the video, which, in addition to bodily harm, coercion and disturbance of the public peace, means that ApoRed has violated the Art Copyright Act. Since he did not appear at a court hearing, he was requested to be held in custody for two weeks. He was sentenced to a suspended sentence and 200 hours of work. An appeal by his attorney was dismissed.
“Let’s go the bunny”
ApoRed has at least six other channels on YouTube besides its main and gaming channels.
He designed sneakers and cell phone cases.
