Yay!! Its another Living In Fast Express week with Laraddiji, the section where I talk about what’s going on in life in general or something that has ticked me into putting this together. Today, I wanted to focus on youtubers who inspired me to start my own YouTube channel. I’ll only talk about five of them from the most recent channel I subscribed to and how they’ve inspired me in my journey on YouTube.
I just subscribed to her channel this year and so far, I’m amazed at how the young people of this generation are thriving with social media, youtube especially as a part time job and as a passive source of income. She’s married to an African man, not sure which country but her name LuchiLoyale. She’s 25yrs old and does mostly Hair videos & lifestyle vlogs. She’s hails from Nigeria, an Ibo Lady and is based in Iowa in this country, she’s also married and just had her first child. She’s a full time ICU nurse and a part time youtuber. I identified with her channel because she was a young pregnant lady at the time when I subscribed, but now, she has a week old son, she’s also a nurse and understands the struggles of work, family life and having a YouTube channel plus, she has natural hair which like me, we’re always looking for ways to make everything work.
The other person I subscribed to is Bibiana Yetty Vlogs, she vlogs mostly about balancing work life and family life. She is from Nigerian and is a Yoruba woman based in United Kingdom. She is married with 3 children who are fraternal twins with a boy sibling. She is a Dentist by day and also a part time youtuber. I identified with her channel because first of all she has fraternal twins like I do who are a year older than mine and she also has a little boy who is a year older than my little guy. She’s a Christian and I love that her family live a Godly life. One of the reasons I started my channel was to promote living a peaceful life and how can that be achieved if you don’t have the peace of God in your life? If you don’t have the love of God as the basis for your life? You know?
This lady I’m about to mention is a business savvy, fashion forward, makeup lover and the recent author of a book called Heart and Hustle. She has her own makeup lip-stick from MAC, and is based in the United Kingdom and she’s also from Nigeria, I’m not sure if she’s an Ibo or yoruba woman. Actually another youtuber that is on my list that I’m yet to mention refer her as a mentor and I decided to look her up. She studied in the UK and her channel is mostly about makeup but she dabbles in fashion a lot, and she has over 2 million subscribers on her channel. She’s married with a child, and does YouTube full time. I identify with Patricia Bright because I’ve learnt a lot on the topic of being business savvy and how to save money for a business as an entrepreneur.
The next youtuber I’ll mention is that of Sisi Yemmie, she’s a food and lifestyle blogger that was based in the Uk at a time of her life, during her university days, I can’t remember what she studied however, she moved back home to start a family and fell in love with vlogging about living in Nigeria. Her channel is mostly about Food and Lifestyle. Like I said, like my previous subscriptions, she’s Nigerian and is a Yoruba woman. She is married with two kids now, her daughter was born in the best month of the year, you can guess what month that is, it’s mine as well, February 22. She’s on YouTube fulltime and I love her channel for one reason, her openness and honesty in a nation that is used to the people who keep a lot of information to themselves. One thing I’ve learnt here in the States is that, a lot of people are open about their life and are honest about their problems and thus get help earlier rather than later. There’s a lot in Nigeria that needs change and I’m glad that change is already happening, it seems slow but at least I’m glad its happening.
The first youtuber that lit a youtube light in me was the Ngeeshow which is a channel by Ms. Ngozi. Its mostly a Talk show that resonated with me since I had a lot of writings that could be turn to a talk show basically. She’s of Ibo decent from Nigeria and she is based in Nigeria as well. She’s a Christian, married and has a child, I’m not sure how many there are or how old. She’s a marker by day I believe and a part time youtuber. I fell in love with her set and her editing style and how she presents a topic, recently she talked about the issue of #metoo movement in Nigeria and how a lot needs to change in how women are perceived and treated when a negative situation arises especially in the case of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct.
Like I said earlier, its only in education and talking about issues that’s plaguing our societies can we start a change in how situations are handled anywhere in the world. Perspectives need to be changed and new cultures need to be developed so that all these old ways of living will not rule in a generation that has obviously gone through a lot of change through the education of its people and especially with people that have experienced better ways of living. It will make no sense to experience a better way of life with people that know how it is done in well developed countries and then go back home and you only incorporate the negative ways of living from abroad. We need people that will bring home positive ways of living and positive lifestyles to our enriched culture while incorporating our leveles of education to make our individual countries great again.
I’m Laraddiji and my channel is mostly about living a positive and peaceful Lifestyle. I’m Nigerian and I’m based in the United States, I’m married with 3 kids, twins plus their sibling, I’m a nurse and practitioner and a part time youtuber, I’m looking forward to the journey ahead. I incorporated the talk show style of Ngee show, and lifestyle vlogging of the other youtubers I mentioned and so far I’ve been having fun with it all, I’m so glad and I thank you very much for staying with me till this time. Please let us know who means a lot to you that you learn from or study.
