Syrian YouTubers Get Thumbs Up for “Halal Love” Episode on Netflix

The show will feature the Syrian couple’s love story and journey as immigrants in the United States. 


The couple met back in 2019. Wasim was an up-and-coming personality in Seattle who had bounced back from hard times, and Asmaa was a successful Givenchy makeup artist who was creating a name for herself in Texas. The two met on Instagram and fell in love. Soon after, the two got married and started a YouTube channel called “Syrian Couple in the USA,” which exploded amongst middle-eastern audiences. The channel currently has over 377,000 subscribers and continues to snowball. Their channel received a YouTuber Silver Play button back in 2019, and Wasim received the award for the best Syrian YouTubers in the same year.

Wasim’s story is one of triumph over trials. He moved to the United States as a refugee looking to escape unrest in his town province in the Middle East. Before those tragic events, Wasim Altabbaa was a prominent figure in his hometown. He had a career in local show business and appeared on many Syrian TV shows. He also went on to win multiple awards, such as 2010’s Best Actor Award in the Adonai Festival and 2012’s Actor of the Generation Award in The People’s Choice Awards. In 2012, Waseemo also received honors as one of the Top 5 Best Child Actors. 

Wasim came to the United States and started working jobs in restaurants while studying Tech Support. Those were simple times, but the influencer shares that he enjoyed them nonetheless. He understood that he couldn’t bank too much on his status back in the Middle East to make a name for himself in the US, so he paid his dues early on. 

Later, Waseemo got the opportunity to work at Bellevue College when he moved to Seattle. He spent five years in the institution and then later transferred to a tech support job at Facebook. All the while, Wasim started documenting his life and uploading them to social channels. He became a hit on Instagram and amassed a serious following. Today his account is frequented by over 845,000 followers. He also started to dabble with YouTube and got a knack for it.

At some point during his rise to fame, he met his wife, Asmaa Altamo, on Instagram. They connected, and everything else is history. Today, they are one of the most prominent middle-eastern couples on virtual platforms.

Amid influencer success, Wasim Altabbaa has not forgotten his roots. He started volunteering at MAPS Youth in 2015 and was heavily involved in delivering food and clothes to Syrian refugees. As a social entrepreneurship venture, Waseemo is also planning to launch a brand called “SyrianRoots.” a merchandise line featuring Syrian culture. Wasim will then donate up to thirty-five percent of the company’s proceeds to efforts to help Syrian refugees all over the world.

Wasim’s rise to success is an inspiration to many who are bouncing back from hard falls. In times where many people are experiencing setbacks, stories like his are a beacon of hope that motivates others to keep pressing forward no matter what.
