Ghib Ojisan Wikipedia
Ghibli Ojisan, also known as Ghib Ojisan is a Japanese YouTuber currently living in Singapore. His name, Ghibli, is a reference to Studio Ghibli which is a Japanese animated film studio producing excellent animated movies. “Ojisan” means uncle or a older male in his 40s or 50s in the Japanese language. Hence, Ghib Ojisan means “Uncle Ghibli”.
Some of the most popular videos of Ghib Ojisan include his “finger style” guitar busking in various cities around the world. Many of his guitar music feature music from Studio Ghibli films, for example Totoro or Spirited Away.
Ghib Ojisan is born in Osaka Japan, raised in the United States (which explains his excellent English), and now based in Singapore. Ghib Ojisan also goes by the name of Mr Ken.
Ghib Ojisan Occupation
As far as we know, Ghib Ojisan is a full time YouTuber, though he did mention in his videos that he has worked before in corporate firms in Japan as well as in Singapore. According to his Social Blade profile, he has 157k subscribers and can make an estimated $577 – $9.2K per month.
Ghib Ojisan is also known for making a video on the Japanese Occupation in Singapore. His coverage was unbiased and was generally well received by both Singaporeans and Japanese, according to this article on Mothership. He has covered the facts mostly correctly regarding the event, and he feels “terrible” that so many innocent lives were lost.
Ghib Ojisan Singlish
Ghib Ojisan’s signature Singlish opening phrase is “Huat ah! Jippun Lang Lai Liao!”. He has immersed himself very well into Singaporean society, for example he appreciates and likes the taste of durian (most Japanese don’t). He also knows many other Singlish phrases like “paiseh”.
Personally, I find his videos quite entertaining and educational. Do check out his YouTube videos! For example, he interviews his landlord who lived in a kampong to learn more about the kampong life in Singapore during the 1960s.
