Galaxy Racer was founded in 2019 and currently has over 100 content creators across Middle East North Africa (MENA) and Southeast Asia (SEA), amassing over 370 million followers and generating over 2 billion monthly views.

Previously being in the news and media for esports, I am impressed on how fast the organisation has expanded into Southeast Asia in the last quarter – results do speak for itself! I’m more than excited to embark on this new journey to bring Galaxy Racer to greater heights through strategic marketing initiatives across Southeast Asia. With the recent merger with Team Nigma for our competitive esports division, Nigma Galaxy, I am confident to share that there’s more to come, so watch out for us!”

Galaxy Racer is creating a true 360-degree esports, gaming, content and lifestyle brand.

RTE has recently invested in My LADS, an Augmented Reality (AR) technology engagement firm which powers fan engagement.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

One of the biggest female content creators from the Arab speaking world with a following of over 40 Million, Noor Stars will be representing Galaxy Racer across her many channels and creating a variety of content

Galaxy Racer (GXR), the biggest esports, gaming and lifestyle organisation, headquartered in Dubai, with market presence in the Middle East, North Africa, South-East Asia, Europe and South Asia, has announced it has signed one of the most popular content creators in the Arab speaking world, Noor Stars, as its new content creator.

As the latest addition to Galaxy Racer’s constantly growing content creator team, Noor Stars will be representing the organisation across her many channels and creating a variety of exciting and compelling content – which includes everything from music, videos and films to comics and product launches – for her millions of fans around the world.

Galaxy Racer launched in 2019 and has already become one of the biggest esports, gaming, and lifestyle organisations globally. The organisation prides itself on having five separate business offerings; Esports Teams, Content Creators, Tournament Management, Merchandising and Lifestyle and GXR Records, a newly established record label that already carries two signed artists from the MENA region and are looking to expand globally.

Galaxy Racer’s content creator team has enjoyed startling success in just two years, and Noor Stars will join a roster that features some of the biggest content creators in the MENA and Southeast Asia regions, including Abo Flah, the biggest and fastest-growing gaming channel in the Arabic speaking world. The organisation now carries over 100 content creators, with a total reach of over 370 million followers across all platforms and more than two billion views.

The first person in the region to reach 10 million subscribers on a social platform and one of the most popular content creators in the Arab speaking world, Noor Stars began her career on YouTube in 2015. Paving the path for female content creators in the region, Noor Stars had to overcome serious challenges early in her career for simply being an Arab woman on YouTube. Her success on the platform, with passionate fans and a devoted family behind her, has seen Noor Stars become an inspiration to aspiring female content creators in the region, and globally.

Galaxy Racer’s Content Creator and YouTube sensation, Noor Stars commented: “I am excited to be joining Galaxy Racer as their newest content creator! I am always looking to grow as a person and felt I wanted to expand into different verticals and create many more exciting content for my audience such as movies, films and product launches. I am confident at Galaxy Racer I will be able to create and provide fresh and engaging content to my followers. I hope my journey inspires more female content creators to build confidence in themselves and believe that if you truly enjoy doing something, that is a good enough reason to keep going. Never take no for an answer – the most important story to tell is yourself!”

Paul Roy, CEO and Founder of Galaxy Racer, commented: “We are thrilled to announce that Noor Stars will be joining Galaxy Racer as one of our content creators! With an impressive social media following and inspiring the next generation positively, we are excited with the content she will be creating. We have already signed some of the biggest content creators in the region and I believe that Noor Stars will be a great addition to our ever-growing list of content creators. Welcome to our galaxy, Noor Stars!”
