Jamal Edwards - YouTube’s grime reaper
Mrs Rogers spoke to the Y12s this week about Jamal Edwards, the young music mogul who started his own YouTube News Channel and is now breaking into movies. Jamal started his YouTube music channel when he was still at school. Within 4 years, he was a celebrity broadcaster as one of the faces of the YouTube generation and had built a huge global audience with only a camcorder and a mobile phone. He now has a marketing phenomenon named after him “the Jamal Edwards effect” meaning that anything is possible in the digital era. Jamal himself says, “Try anything, don’t be scared of failure that is my advice. The only failure is not trying. And when you find your niche, what you are really good at, hit it so hard”. Great advice for all of us.
