We managed to get in touch with Ebrahim and he was kind enough to tell us more about his online presence. "My TikTok content is a mix of many topics. I debunk rumors about Dubai, I react to strange videos, and, most importantly, I cover horror," he told Bored Panda.
"In these videos, I share 8 horror facts per episode, and I have a long series of True Horror Stories that are only based in the Middle East," Ebrahim said. "I leave out the Western horror stories for other creators. I only enjoy covering stories that are both unheard and have happened in the Middle East."

The focus of Ebrahim's videos has always been on the Middle East. "I published a few episodes talking about 'things to do in the UAE', and one of them was visiting the haunted Ghost Village in Ras Al Khaima."
"This location immediately grabbed the viewers' attention, and the comments quickly piled up. The viewers requested to talk more in-depth about haunted locations, and that's how the horror series started," the content creator recalled the beginning of his dive into the topic.

Ebrahim usually does his research for the series online. "A small portion of the stories I use are from Arabic or Islamic YouTube channels and, of course, I give them credits. However, the majority of them are personal stories from fans that they submit to my mailbox or Instagram account via direct messages."
His audience comes from all over the world. "I've traveled abroad a few times after my stories went viral, and I've met people from Germany, England, and the United States that were fans of my content, and it blew my mind! I never thought I would have fans across the whole globe."

Horror enthusiasts are bored of American content, and now they've found [stuff] from [a completely different background]," Ebrahim added, highlighting that he loves everyone who clicks on his videos
"I have future plans for my true horror content, so stay tuned because it is going to be insane!"
