He’s posted more than 1,100 videos, and all of these together number over 8.7 million views; Keemokazi was initially mostly into uploading his original songs, but is today into sharing videos which feature him during his everyday life, whether he’s spending time with friends, travelling or taking on internet challenges.
Early life and education
Keemokazi was raised alongside his five sisters Sima, Saby, Serene, Sara and Sophie in California, by their Syrian parents who moved to the US not long before they had their first child; their mother Nina Hazem is a homemaker and is also active on various social media networks, and their father’s a businessman, but his name remains undisclosed. Keemokazi’s featured his family in many of his Instagram pictures and videos; he and his father have posed shirtless in several pictures, as they’re both quite muscular. Keemokazi’s sister Serene beat stage 3 Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer in September 2021.
Keemokazi studied at a local high school in California, and was passionate about multiple activities while there as he played soccer, appeared in a couple of school plays and ran track. It was during those four years that he began building a fanbase for himself on the internet and as he was already somewhat popular by the time he matriculated in 2021, Keemokazi moved to Los Angeles, California to continue working on his way up on the internet rather than enrolling at college.
