Mamahuhu is a creative studio and video platform on the Internet that produces original videos and content.[1]

Launched on February 20, 2014 by two Scottish productors Alessio Avezzano and Matt Mcgill. The platform is managed by the production company Mamahuhu Limited. These videos are also broadcast on YouTube. The platform also operates as an advertising agency by offering videos designed to promote brands.[2]

She is based in Shanghai, China and the current CEO is Syed Samrat.

The various Westerners actors working in this studio are all English-speaking people and from English-speaking countries mainly from the United States of America, Great Britain, Canada and Australia. The languages[3] used in the videos are Chinese and English. The other actors are Chinese but also speak English.


Mamahuhu was launched on February 20, 2014, the studio launches hidden cameras with westerners and Chinese actors. This original concept combining Westerners and Chinese allows the channel to be known more and more on the Chinese web but also beyond Chinese borders.[4]

From November 10, 2014,[5] the studio embarks[6] on humorous skits by talking about the cultural differences between Western expats[7] in China and Chinese, and their relationship with locals. It talks about romantic relationships,[8] clichés, family pressure on Chinese youth,[9] but also about racism.[10]

It is also at this time that the studio will allow two actors to hatch like the American Donnie Does or the Chinese Kay Wang.[11]

On May 31, 2015, the last video was released, following the departure of Donnie Does and many tensions inside the studio. The studio closed.[12][13]

On August 1, 2017, the studio reopened[14] with a new direction and new faces. The American Youtuber Donnie Does is not kept following his choice to sign a contract with an American brand which he is responsible for promoting the brand. Despite the refusal of some members, Kay Wang returns to the studio.[15]

September 10, 2017 was the last appearance of Kay Wang in the studio, after participating in several videos of the studio the Chinese actress is thanked by the Studio Management. Indeed, the leaders did not appreciate that she created her own studio[16] called 233 Gang with her own YouTube channel.[17]

On February 13, 2018,[18] YouTube rewards for their work Mamahuhu by awarding the Silver Designer Trophy rewarding channels with more than 100,000 subscribers.

In January 2019, Johnny Tian informs the Director of Mamahuhu that he leaves the production studio to start his own professional career as a film director.
