Meet the hosts of YTFF 2019 red carpet event, two friends who manage the YouTube channel, Slay Point. Gautami Kawale and Abhyudaya Mohan were the first ones to arrive on the red carpet to meet and greet other YouTubers. Keeping the enthusiasm high in the Mumbai air, the duo perfectly coordinated with each other and asked some funny yet relevant questions to the guests.
The entire line up of guests was filled with who’s who of the YouTube platform. With 22 YouTube personalities gracing the event, the guest list of YTFF 2019 was in itself an entertainer.
