An Omani stu­dent won the best in­flu­en­tial video con­tent maker award in the first sea­son of Sadeem, a TV show and con­test for so­cial me­dia in­flu­encers of the Arab World.

Ali Said Al Niyadi, a 24-year-old stu­dent who stud­ies com­puter sys­tems in Ire­land, reached the fi­nals along with two other con­tes­tants from Libya and Al­ge­ria.

His fi­nal stage video ti­tled “Take Ad­van­tage of Op­por­tu­ni­ties”, de­liv­ered a mes­sage on how to make the most of life’s op­por­tu­ni­ties one might re­ceive, even via a phone call.

His other videos in the ear­lier stages of the con­test ad­dressed var­i­ous is­sues such as child mo­lesta­tion, dream achieve­ment, and life bat­tles.

On his Twit­ter ac­count, Ali said, “I con­vey my deep thanks to you all. Thanks first to Al­lah, and the prayers of my par­ents, I was crowned the cham­pion of the first sea­son of Sadeem. It is such an in­de­scrib­able hap­pi­ness.”

The con­tes­tants of Sadeem un­der­went var­i­ous chal­lenges in dif­fer­ent coun­tries, dur­ing which they had to ad­dress them by mak­ing in­flu­en­tial videos.

Ali is pas­sion­ate about foot­ball and uses some of his leisure time in cre­at­ing con­tent about a stu­dent’s life abroad. He al­ways works to de­velop his tal­ents and dreams to ben­e­fit the larger seg­ment of the peo­ple.

It is worth men­tion­ing that out of 18,000 ap­pli­ca­tions sub­mit­ted to Sadeem, 20 have been se­lected for the train­ing camp, and nine have been short­listed for the chal­lenges stage, with only three of them reach­ing the fi­nals.

Sadeem was aimed at find­ing the best con­tent mak­ers in the Arab World, and equip­ping them with state-of-the-art tech­nolo­gies and ex­per­tise so their in­flu­ence can reach the largest pos­si­ble seg­ment of peo­ple.
