My First YouTube Video

Hello my name is Dominic Gichane and I would like to take a little bit of your time and read the story behind my first ever YouTube video.

My YouTube channel also shares my name, Dominic Gichane. Fell free to browse it.

The video is about a car, the Chevrolet Cruze. There were 6 cars to be won by customers who bought Microsoft smartphones back in 2015.

I used a Panasonic Lumix camera to film this video. A camera I had received as a Christmas gift and I still own today.


This event happened at the museum of Kenya in Nairobi. The winners however were announces at the Sarit centre mall in Westlands, Nairobi.

Who Won?

Kennedy Ngige 35, a truck driver based in Kitale in Western Kenya, was perhaps the most doubtful of the winners and only yielded to the insistence by the Microsoft team notifying him of the win.

“I thought it was a hoax. I doubted the authenticity of the phone call and actually thought it was an attempt to defraud me. I had to go to the shop to verify before I could believe it,” said Ngige.

Presenting the cars to the winners, Microsoft Mobile Devices General Manager Mariam Abdullahi said, “We are indeed happy to fulfil our promise with the presentation of this unique salon cars to users that have gone ahead to achieve more and increase their productivity with our Lumia devices. I hope a lot more people will be inspired by this”.

This domain has been sitting idle since 2015. Why?

Because I didn’t want anyone else to buy it since I also own the domain. So I didn’t want anyone to extort me into buying this domain from them. The suffix also tells you that I am from Kenya.

It is now April 2020 and I am reviving this domain and I will use it as my YouTube Channel landing page as well as give you information about starting and running your own YouTube channel.

As a landing page I will tell you the stories behind my YouTube videos as well as give you some additional information. Also having been creating YouTube videos since 2014, I will give you advice on ow to start and run your channel. I will tell you of the mistakes that I have made along the way and some useful insights of what I have learnt so far.
