US Based Kenyan Diaspora Media Personality Jeremy Damaris is a happy man. He has now joined the exclusive club of Youtube Silver Plate/Youtube Play Button winners. Jeremy was recognised by the American video-sharing platform which is owned by Google after his channel hit the coveted 100,000 subscribers mark.

The broadcaster who is also the CEO and Founder of Kikuyu Diaspora Television USA could not hide his joy after receiving the plaque. He video-recorded the moment as he carefully unpacked the “gift” which  is made of a silver-plated metal with a crystal in the middle that is shaped like a play button.

As he prepared to unwrap it, he joked that he was ready for anything and even took three knives, a sufuria (cooking pan), miiko  (cooking sticks), a ladle and a chapati roller “just in case it was something edible which might require some cooking.”

“Congratulations on your subscriber milestone. We are honored to take part in recognizing your achievement and want your experience to be exceptional,” Read a card accompanying the wrapped gift.

YouTube CEO Susan Diane Wojcicki  wrote the following to Jeremy:  “You’ve just done something that very few YouTube creators accomplish. You achieved a milestone with hard work, perseverance, and probably a healthy sense of humour, too,” adding, “What you’ve accomplished can’t be taken away from you. And we’d like to recognize you and all your hard work with this award, a small token of our esteem and respect.”

“Each and every person who has subscribed to your channel has been touched by what you created. They were inspired, challenged, or entertained,” she added and challenged him to work hard towards the next milestone; 1,000,000 subscribers.

“I don’t think there are many in my Kikuyu Community who have received a gift like this,” an elated Jeremy, who currently resides in Birmingham, Alabama said. Watch:

YouTube  rewards content creators that proved their commitment in keeping it alive. For this reason, since 2012 the most popular social network for videos has introduced the Creator Awards, a prestigious prize that rewards the commitment and quality of YouTube channels.

The Creator Awards offered by YouTube value the commitment and quality showcased by the most interesting channels, and is divided into:

  • Silver Button Creator (Silver Button), a silver plate that rewards channels and creators that achieve 100,000 subscribers.
  • Golden Button Creator (Golden Button), a gold plate that rewards channels and content creators that achieve one million members.
  • Diamond Button Creator (Diamond Button), which rewards channels and content creators that reach 10 million subscribers.

Since the introduction of the Silver Button, back in 2013, the way prizes are given have changed slightly: in addition to considering the number of channel subscribers, YouTube now also evaluates the number of views and the average viewing time for each video. Channels have the right to claim their license plate once they exceed the subscribers threshold for each prize.

In a bold move and which took great courage, a former Kenyan Diaspora man Kunga Kihokia who was born and raised in Miami Florida has moved back to Kenya, bought a 20 acres piece of land and established an organic farm in Murang’a.

Initially, Kunga had planned to be in Kenya for three weeks 5 years ago but after what he says was the realization of the problems affecting Kenyans because of western lifestyle which he himself was struggling with, he felt strongly to start an organic farm to address those problems.

Kunga has built a water tower to use gravity that allows the water to get pumped and distributed  through  irrigation into the field. Everything in the farm is powered by solar energy and he has dug a borehole that supplies enough water for the farm. Watch the video, be inspired  and enjoy.

VIDEO: Kenyans in Diaspora reject BBI report, referendum

A lobby for Kenyans  in the diaspora is urging voters to reject the  Building Bridges Initiative report in the  referendum being championed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

According to Commonwealth Voter Privileges Right Association (COVPRA) the report is being imposed on Kenyans after the views of  certain groups and  elected leaders views were rejected..

Uhuru and Raila have rejected amendments to the final report saying those opposing it had time to give their views to the fourteen member committee they appointment.

 

The lobby avers that the recommendations in the final report do not represent the position of all Kenyans and a contested referendum would divide Kenyans.

“Kenyans should reject the BBI report. It is two man initiative that is being imposed on the people. The clergy have rejected it, several groups have rejected it. It’s not a Wanjiku Initiative. A few people and their surrogates want to change the Constitution for their personal gain,” Mr David Kimengere Waititu, the association’s Organising secretary told the Nation.

“It would have been  necessary to allow debate on all the issues that  arose in the final report  before coming  up with a bill. Kenyans are being taken for a ride,”  he said.

In June the group petitioned the committee  led by Garissa senator Yusuf Hajji to allow views from all dissenting voices saying all Kenyans should be allowed to participate.

“Freedom to Assembly, Freedom of expression and Freedom to political participation are so important in a  process like this one. It would be a sham  if the BBI Team was to ignore the views of some Kenyans. During the  meetings to sensitize the public on the initiative,” Kimengere said.

Leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto and civil society are opposed to some of the proposals in the final report.

The group says a contested referendum would leave the country divided.

“We do not want a process that would leave Kenyans more divided. Let all Kenyans reject this report in a referendum to save their country from a few people who think they own Kenya.  We in Covpra, have our motherland at heart,” he said.

 Covpra said that the future of Kenya lies in the hands of the hollo polloi and not it’s leaders.

“ We call upon the Kenyans poor not to buy to the schemes of the dynasties. Let us protect our country by rejecting this monster called BBI if it goes to the referendum.

The group said in a statement that Kenyans should reject plots by politician to engage in chaos.

“At the end, this might result to   a badly contested referendum and  create a poisoned society ahead of the 2022 general elections. Let’s refuse any incitement to violence and stand up against the dynasties to shape the future of Kenya,” he says.

In their June petition, the group cited the strained relations between the Executive and the Judiciary and the fall out in the ruling Jubilee party over the process as a matter of concern.

“Our position stands that there is no proposal  to fix the simmering tensions between the two arms of government and between the two leaders of the Executive,” Mr Kimengere stated.
