Due to incessant demand.

Ivana Alawi recently granted her subscribers’ request, allowing his brother, Hashim, to create his own YouTube channel. 

“So pinilit ko lang talaga si brother na mag-start ng kaniyang channel kasi ang dami kong nakikita na mga nagre-request ng channel niya. So here is it,” said the social media darling on Hashim’s first video.

In there, the new YouTuber played the “jojowain o totropahin” challenge.

Though all are beautiful in their own right, Hashim “friendzoned” Pia Wurtzbach, Kim Domingo, Julia Barretto, and Ellen Adarna, relating they are far removed from her “ideal girl.”

As for Kathryn Bernardo, Alex Gonzaga, Anne Curtis, and Liza Soberano, Hashim said he couldn’t see himself being someone who’s already taken.

The only actors that he picked as “jojowain” are the likes of Bea Alonzo, his “crush,” and Nadine Lustre.  

“Ang ganda niya. Filipina beauty. She’s like a perfect example of Filipina beauty,” said he of Nadine. 

“Ang ganda niya eh. She’s so talented and natural siya. She’s like, she’s being herself always!”

But when Donnalyn Bartolome’s name was mentioned, Hashim looked only too giddy. 

He quipped, “‘Di ba may third option? ‘Di ba ‘yun totropahin, jojowahin, or aasawahin?”

Surprised by her brother’s honesty, Ivana then interjected: “‘Di mo pa nga kilala ‘yung tao eh (aasawahin mo na)!”

Hashim, on the other hand, was quick to defend the singer-actress.

“‘Di ko kilala pero parang through her video you could see… Meron siyang ginawang video where she did life swap with less privileged family. You can tell already from that video, she’s a really nice person deep inside,” he explained.
