Barely five years after immigrating to the United Sates, Kenyan Diaspora media personality Jeremy Damaris has done what many of his peers can only dream of.

His media house, Kenya Diaspora Media – USA (formally Kikuyu Diaspora Media) has established a spectacular state-of-the-art studio after recently paying cash for a building in Birmingham, Alabama.

Since the news broke, well-wishers have been congratulating the entrepreneur who, besides being a radio and tv host, also doubles up as a musician and a professional Master of Ceremonies (MC).

However, the humble man from a village in Kiambu attributes the major achievement to God’s grace.

“I thank everyone who has contributed in one way or another to this immense success. God indeed can move mountains,” says Jeremy, adding that without the goodwill of his fans and well-wishers, this would only have been a pipedream.

Together with his wife Sally, Jeremy immigrated to the USA in 2015 where he established the then Kikuyu Diaspora Radio from scratch.

The station grew exponentially, becoming Kikuyu Diaspora media  and later  re-branding to Kenya Diaspora Media -USA.

“We are now broadcasting in different languages and reaching all manner of Kenyan demographics around the world,” he recently told Kenya Satellite News Network.

Learn more about Jeremy Damaris by watching the following video which is in Gīkūyū language:

Besides disseminating news and events of the day, Damaris, through KDM, has been known to reach out to persons or families in dire straits and bringing their plight’s attention to his audience.

His Youtube channel has been growing fast. Las year, he was awarded the coveted graphite Youtube Creators plaque after his channel reached 100,000 subscribers. His studio, as you can see in the photo below, is equipped to handle all manner of audiovisual content, ready for instant broadcast through various platforms.

“KENYA DIASPORA MEDIA USA has bought its building in cash. Its now Official!!, ” posted Jeremy.

“Glory to God for our new office in United States. FAITH MOVES MOUNTAINS! Thanks to everyone who participated to make this happen.#NoDebt!! #KDMFAMILYTEAM!!! #Mahigahomes #NeemaShelters #Amgrealtors #EdenparkcountryGardens #OptivenLtd #AttorneyWanjohi #GiokoTaxes #Maridadymotors and all #WELLWISHERS,” he added.

“The word compassion may have been created just to describe this true son of Africa as he has many times gone out of his way expressing the same while benevolently responding positively to praiseworthy cases many don’t pay attention to and watch without doing anything to help mankind,” says Dr Isaac Kinungi of Kenyan Parents in the USA organisation.

Others have described him as a philanthropist on a journey of inspiring and a fulfilling the dreams that brought him to America, while connecting the dots and networking with those that share common values and unity of purpose, to bring about change to humanity and society at large.

 

Kenya Satellite News Media congratulates Jeremy Damaris and KDM (USA) for the latest achievement.

Churchill show comedian David Kangogo popularly known as David the Student was racially abused in the US, in an incident that was reported by the US media.

The artist relocated to the US a few years ago where he has been working as a cab driver. In a video that was posted online on Friday, November 20, David faced off with a wild passenger who racially attacked him.

David disclosed that he picked a couple outside a sports grill and asked them to put on their face masks to curb the spread of Covid-19.

However, the man took off his mask upon boarding the taxi. David’s again urged the passenger to have his face mask on which caused the passenger to become rowdy.

The former comedian pulled up the car to handle the issue but the passenger insisted on alighting and even threatened to pee inside the car.

“For me, all I thought about was recording the incident. I was scared that we would punch me or get aggressive,” David said later in an interview with KOMO News.

The video went viral and the passenger was banned from using the cab by the agency, Lyft.

KOMO News also reported that the passenger has been fired from his place of employment.

Local area police stated that they were aware of the incident but could not take action unless the comedian files a suit.

However, David said that he was not interested in initiating a legal process and that all he wanted was to move on.

“Thank you guys for the support. The cab agency has been supportive like the Mayor of the City too. We all can do and be better!” he tweeted.

In June 2020, Kenyans and the whole world joined hands in condemning an incident where an African American, George Floyd, died in the hands of police officers during an arrest.

Floyd was pinned to the ground on his neck by the law enforcers who were accused of strangling him.
