‘Is NAS DAILY fake?’: Cacao Project founder calls out Nas Daily vlogger

Is NAS DAILY fake? Nuseir Yassin most famously known as Nas Daily gained prominence on social media platforms for the videos he creates. Nas Daily travels to different parts of the world and creates content to show the world the types of problems in different countries. Well, Let’s accept he is pretty good at it and his presenting skills get any viewer glued to the video throughout it’s entire duration. Well to everyone’s amuse Nuseir Yassin has come into the spotlight yet again but for the WRONG REASONS.

Cacao Project founder Louise Mabulo took to Facebook to call out Nas Daily vlogger Nuseir Yassin over his 2019 visit to her hometown, claiming he had been rude, mocked the local accent and language, and cared only about clickable content.

She began by saying she kept her silence for two years but decided to come out in light of the recent news involving the popular vlogger and his Nas Academy and Kalinga tattoo artist, centenarian Apo Whang-od.

She said that Nuseir visited her hometown to cover her social enterprise, which aims to support farmers’ livelihoods by providing them with cacao seedlings as a long-term crop to rotate with other short-term crops.

At the time, Louise was a fan of Nas Daily and would watch it every day. However, she said she would soon be disappointed by Nuseir’s behavior.

“I watched him imitate and mock the local accent and language, vocalizing Tagalog-sounding syllabic phrases saying it sounded stupid,” she claimed in a lengthy Facebook post. According to Louise, Nuseir also repeatedly called Filipinos, farmers, and the people of her hometown poor.

“He said no one wants to hear about farmers or farms, it’s not clickable viewable content. He didn’t care about making change or shedding light on real issues — he only wanted content, a good, easy story to tell that would get him more Filipino views. He even joked at the start of the day that all he needed was to put ‘Philippines’ in the title, and he’d rack in millions of views would and the comments would come flooding with brainless ‘Pinoy pride’ comments,” she said.

Louise claimed that Nuseir didn’t thank her family even after they had received him in their home and refused to eat food her mother had prepared for him.

“He’d built a story in his mind without meaningfully understanding the context of what he was going to cover. As a result, he was disappointed that my work wasn’t the perfectly packaged story he’d pre-determined and imagined – I mean what visual popcorn can you create out of a farm?” she said.

“At the end of the day, I was exhausted, I had no patience left, and I’d worn out every last dreg of my tolerance. He refused to let anyone take a break or eat, and he blamed his lack of ‘presentable click-worthy content’ on me and claimed that everything is not clickable or viewable,” she continued.


Louise said that she had been transparent about her work during a phone call, and told him that she didn’t think it would be something he could visualize or cover in a one-minute video – the format Nas Daily had become known for.

According to Louise, Nuseir wrongfully assumed that she replaced coconuts with cacao – something she called “unrealistic,” “absurd,” and “not the goal of my venture.”

Eventually, they both agreed that it was best for him to leave.

“I should have known better, that this man was exploitative and fueling a neocolonialist narrative using our need for foreign validation,” she said.

She explained that she stayed silent since then to avoid backlash. “I told myself, that if he really was like this, it would come to light eventually,” she added.

Shai Lagarde, Reporter and Producer at GMA News has also shared her views on this;
