Emon received a Silver Play Button on May 8, an award given by YouTube to channels that reach or surpass 100,000 subscribers. He is the first person from Narail to receive this recognition.

He said: “I was able to help my family with the money I got from YouTube. I also bought a motorcycle for myself. I invested in improving my studio to create higher quality content.

“I want to take full responsibility of my family in the future.”

He sais he has plans to help aspiring YouTubers.  

“I wish to learn more and then open a YouTube club in my area. I want local youths to join, so we can grow together and learn new skills.

He said he wants to become a full-time YouTube content creator after he completes his studies.

MM Omar Faruque, another YouTuber from Narail, said: “Emon is an outstandingly talented content creator. As far as I know, he is the first person from this area to receive this level of recognition from YouTube. Other YouTubers in the area are very much inspired by him.”

How it all began

Emon started animating cartoons when he was only a student of  grade 8. He has no institutional training; he learned how to animate with the help of online tutorials.

He opened different YouTube channels, but none did well due to inconsistent uploads.

Emon Squad launched on April 17, 2018. The focus of his channel is riddles and IQ tests in Bangla. With his fun and engaging videos, he amassed a large audience in a relatively short period of time.

Kazi Hafizur Rahman, editor of Narail Kantho, an online newspaper, said: “We are very proud to see him come so far. I hope other youths will consider pursuing self-employment, instead of running after traditional jobs.”

Md Nazmul Huda, Kalia upazila nirbahi officer, said: “We welcome this initiative. If unemployed men and women pursue careers like this, Bangladeshis will be able to earn foreign currency working from home.”
