Faizal Siddiqui is a member of team nawab and the brother of Amir Siddiqui. His brother Amir has recently been in the web of controversies after he made a lengthy TikTok video where he gave his opinion on why TikTok is better and has more content than YouTube. He tagged all the major Youtubers' names on his video including CarryMinati. In response to this, Youtuber CarryMinati posted a now-deleted roast video titled YouTube vs TikTok – The End. The video became an internet sensation as the YouTuber expressed his opinion about the feud that the creators of the two platforms had against each other. YouTube later removed the video based on its harassment policy it had updated in December 2019 stating that they will not tolerate harassment.
