Early Life & Career
Qias Omar was born on September 21, 1988, in San Francisco, California, United States of America. Not much is known about his parents, except the fact that they are of Afghan origin.
Omar was intrigued by social media as a teenager. He started exploring social media and went on to post videos on Vine. His videos started gathering views as he often posted comedy videos, and they turned out to be crowd-puller.
After this initial response, he decided to showcase his skills on YouTube and created his first YouTube channel on July 14, 2007, when he was just 18 years old. He started off by posting videos and pranks related to Afghans and other Middle Eastern people, which brought him quick popularity.
The success of his self-titled channel gave him the confidence to create his second YouTube channel. Thus, he created another channel on March 5, 2012 and named it ‘QrewTV.’
‘QrewTV’ was created to post vlogs and other entertaining videos and went on to become a massive success. With more than a million subscribers and over 200 million views for all its videos, ‘QrewTV’ is currently Omar’s most popular YouTube channel.

Thanks to the success on YouTube, Omar has managed to gather thousands of followers on his Twitter and Instagram accounts as well. While his Twitter page has more than 142,000 followers, his Instagram page has gathered over 565,000 followers. His Instagram account also provides his fans and followers with an opportunity to take a sneak peek into his personal Life.
His love for sneakers got him the opportunity to become the brand ambassador of ‘Crep Protect,’ a popular lifestyle brand, known for producing shoe cleaning kits. Omar is also an entrepreneur and sells clothing and merchandise for men, women, and kids. His online store also sells stationery, bags, device cases, wall art, and home décor.
