Known for his comedic videos, Anwar Jibawi first gained an audience on the social media platform, Vine.

With his brilliant sense of humor, his uploads quickly received thousands of views online. Before long, he had well over a million followers on the app.
Since then, the twenty something year old has also made himself known on other platforms such as Instagram and Youtube- on the latter, he has amassed more than 1.3 million subscribers.

Anwar Jibawi’s Net Worth 2017 – $400,000
How did Anwar Jibawi Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on August 9, 1991 in Chicago, Illinois, Anwar Jibawi’s parents originally immigrated from Pakistan. Part of a big family, he was raised in a Muslim household with his five brothers, many of whom have been featured on his social media accounts. Aside from that, not much is known about his early life- he presumably went to school and obtained his high school diploma in his hometown of Chicago.
At the age of twenty two, Jibwari made the decision to join Vine, a new video-sharing app at the time- little did he know at the time that he would soon become one of the most popular users on the platform. His first six-second clip, When Sounds Interrupt Your Dreams went on to garner thousands of views on the site within just a few days; his unique humor- especially that of his facial contortions, had captured the attention of those in the community. Before long, the Vine went viral, having been shared on several sites including Facebook over a short period of time.
Thanks to the success of his first video, his follower count quickly went up on Vine; he later went on to collaborate with a number of popular Vine stars including Jerry Purpdrank and King Bach. Although he hadn’t posted too many clips (compared to other Vine stars, at least), the quality of his content had done all the work (e.g. pulling in subscribers) for him- by the time the app shut down in early 2017, Jibawi had over 3.5 million followers on Vine, making him one of the top 100 users on the platform. Some of his most popular clips include #DropThatNaeNae and Sagging at it’s Finest.
In 2016, the social media star began uploading videos onto another site, Youtube. Since his channel was first created that July, he has amassed more than 1.3 million subscribers and over 160 million views across all of his uploads- most of which are comedic sketches. To date, his most popular video is that of Killer Clown, in which Jibawi is seen dressed up as a joker, has received over 31.1 million views alone. Some of his other popular uploads include Having a Tall Girlfriend, Crazy Drug Lord, The Broke Life, Most Wanted Killer, and Worst Liar; combined they have over 29 million hits.
According to Socialblade, his Youtube channel has been growing at a tremendous rate since January 2017 (which coincidentally is when Vine shut down). Over the last few months, his subscriber count has been going up by 2K to 4K a day. From January until now, his following has more than doubled- from 620K to over 1.37 million. As far as average views per day, his videos receive anywhere from 500K to 800K+ hits on a daily basis.
Considering how successful his page is (especially when you look at the above numbers), it’s not surprising that Jibawi has been monetizing his content through Youtube’s partnership program. Through it, users are able to make a few dollars (the exact amount depends on various factors such as audience, content, location, etc) per 1,000 monetized views. Assuming that 40% of his total views have been monetized by the site, he would have earned at least $128,000 from his videos.
On top of Vine and Youtube, Jibawi has also found success on Instagram, where he currently has over 4.2 million followers. As a social media influencer, he’d have the opportunity to work with various brands (e.g. sponsorships, endorsements), all of which would naturally, add to his bank account. At this point however, it’s unclear which companies he’s teamed up with so far.
To sum up, it’s clear that the 25-year-old has earned most of his fortune through social media- more specifically via Vine, Youtube, and Instagram. At the rate his following his growing now, it’s more than likely that his overall assets will continue to rise over the next few years.
