The Fresh List 2018: Vineeth ‘Beep’ Kumar and Naser Al Azzeh
For Naser Al Azzeh from Amman, avoiding the corporate field was always the aim, and alongside Vineeth ‘Beep’ Kumar, he now creates content that uses satire to evoke laughs. In 2016, b-boy Naser — founder of breakdancing group Black Ice Crew and freelance film-maker — and Bengaluru boy Vineeth, emcee, beatboxer and former TV host, formed the YouTube channel Jordindian. The name is a blend of their individual ethnic backgrounds.
