Have you spent the entire day watching and reading about Sham Idrees and Froggy being attacked by a mob in Karachi and can’t seem to figure who exactly they are? Well, we’re here to tell you.
To begin with, Sham Idrees, Queen Froggy and Ducky Bhai are all Youtubers with massive followings. Sham, whose real name is Ehtesham Idrees, is married to Froggy (real name Seher) and both of them are based in Canada while Ducky Bhai, whose real name is Saad Ur Rehman, is based in Lahore.
Toh khair, dono apnay apnay kaam main khush thay until last year when Ducky Bhai decided to take a panga and posted a video in which he called out Sham and Froggy for producing fake content and being “click bait material”.
This, of course, did not go down well with Sham and Froggy who retaliated by calling Ducky Bhai and other Pakistani content creators ‘tiny YouTubers’. Yahan say inka phadda shuru hua jo abhi tak chal raha hai. Other Youtubers, such as Zaid Ali T, Irfan Junejo and Mooroo, also got involved in the feud but most of them extended their support to Ducky Bhai because they all felt that Sham stole their idea at some point or another. For example, Mooroo said he had collaborated with another content creator and Sham stole that script, word for word.
In a video posted to Youtube three days ago, Ducky Bhai even alleged that Sham threatened him and his family after he refused to collaborate with him. This is what is supposed to have instigated the attack. Let me add here that Sham has been looking to collaborate with other Youtubers but unhon nay ziada lift nai karayi.
Khair, on Sunday night, Sham Idrees and Queen Froggy, who are currently touring Pakistan, had a meet and greet session at Ocean Mall in Karachi when things took an ugly turn and a mob of people chanting “Ducky Bhai” attacked the couple. The video which went viral on social media shows an angry Sham being shoved and pushed around by a mob right outside the mall premises. According to reports, someone even punched Froggy right in the face, though that wasn’t captured on camera.
In a series of videos and posts, both Sham and Froggy alleged that the attack was “organised” and pointed fingers at Ducky Bhai, who denied his involvement. In fact, he went out to condemn the incident on social media. Other Youtube content creators including Mooroo and Zaid Ali T also condemned the attack and said that hate and dislike should not be translated in such a manner.
In a further bizarre twist, users on Twitter and Facebook commented that Froggy and Sham staged the whole thing to “gain sympathy” and that they are liars and manipulators who will do anything to get views. They even went on to say that Froggy has amazing makeup skills and she made up the bruise. The video in which Froggy alleged that Ducky Bhai was behind the attack has now been removed from her Youtube channel.
It is also important to mention here that the Sham-Ducky feud had allegedly ended after everyone involved posted apology videos. Sham himself posted an apology on the day of the attack. In his apology video, he says that he came to Pakistan with a vision of peace, unity, and love and even though he’s also been hurt, he wants to apologise to everyone who might have been hurt by his actions.
Ab aagay kya hona hai, yeh humain nai pata. Magar hum yeh zarur kahen gay keh bhae Ramzan aagaya hai, muk muka aur sakoon karo.
