Great topic! It’s so important as afro-latinxs that we educate others & acknowledge our privilege as well as who we truly are. ✨

You’re a good story teller mate with a lot of stories great stuff mate ?

Ronnie Blue

Id love to see you and Marvin Herbert on a podcast interviewing ex criminal folk, telling old prison stories or just bouncing off each other for a few hours on a live stream. You 2 have so many stories, are great story tellers and 2 of the most likable u tubers in this genre.

Thank-you so much for the mention really wasn't expected,as always it's really good to listen to you talk.
It's also reassuring that you aren't afraid to admit your defeats in life.
Like yourself I have been through the care system back in the day when it wasn't like today,my nan god bless saved me from myself in the best way she could,but I had my own self destruct button and went against all that was meant to be right..
My dad had kids every were but didn't want to recognize any of them except me in the end.
My mother kept her distance said she didn't want any drama.
I was lucky enough not to go to prison my friends mum was a social worker and she took me under her wing,she treated me like a adult not a child,
Her and my nan made me the person I am today along with the care system I have to say! You learn to stand on your own two feet to fend for yourself. Not to trust anyone.
I know have 5 grown up daughters and 1 adopted son he was my friends child she left him at the age of 3 I couldn't bear for him to go into the system so I took him on,and never looked back.
I also have 18 grandchildren 10 of them are boys,they all know right from wrong I fear for there safely as they get older,but there mums were given the tools to defend themselves and now they are passing that down the there children, I brought them up to never be bullies,never hit anyone who didn't hit them first,it has always stood then in good favour including my son.
I do have more to my story but I don't want to share with the world it takes me to a dark place that many people go to I'm sure,but like them I face each day with a bright start and i try to see the good in people,my grandchildren make this easy because they are innocent and see everything fresh and for the 1st time.
Keep up the good work Samson you really really have inspired me,
Be lucky god bless you ❤❤

SCOTT GODWIN

Thanks for another great video Yammy! I think you’re an amazing person with an absolutely fascinating and poignant story to tell (you’re also a great story teller!). You are perfectly equipped to really make a difference to some of the younger generation especially hard to reach youngsters that normally wouldn’t really respond to mainstream service providers, social workers etc..
It’s rare and special people like you that can actually save kids lives!!
Keep up the great work buddy! I’ve got a feeling we’re gonna be seeing a lot more of you and you’ll now start to experience the success in life you deserve.
Look forward to seeing your journey to the top of a tough old world my friend!!

Cheers..

Yammy did you ever know a fella called 'Budgie' (Peter Burgess) from Isle of White?

J A

Thank you for shout out Yammy ?

Robin Taylor

Did you ever meet pat tate one of the Essex Boys ♥️???

Daniel Evans

You’re an inspiration yammy. Just from watching all your videos I think it’s the way you can break down your emotions which the young generation really struggle with. I’m lucky enough to have flirted with that life and have just started doing this myself. If you could help the younger generation do this with your life experiences that would be amazing and I’m sure would save a lot of wasted lives in the prison and crime system

Good to see you back Yammy! A few videos to get through, which I'm looking forward to! Hope you and the family keeping well! ❤️??

DT Man and Van

I note you say you struggling with the tech mate, not surprising since you was behind the door when it was growing up. If you need anything explaining or recommending, from a mic to a server to someone to set a studio up proper,hit me back mate. to be fair though i don't think you need any help, you nailing the podcast and bringing in the listeners. but if, i'm here.

J A

Yes Yammy hope you are doing well today.

Davidnumber23

hope you can bring some of these old heads in in time to share their stories of survival and change, much valuable content for the Youth of today.

Tim Walton

ahhhh love it smoking a fat ting listening to yammy b stories!!

Dale Swanston

I think you should maybe consider to be a counselor or mentor that helps young offenders, to not make the same mistakes you have made. I've been there and done it and are on that exact path now. I think you'd be very effective at it. It's just a suggestion Yammy.

Dani Tee

Big up yammy. Nice one for mentioning my question. Big up mate.

SHUG - SCOTLAND

Thanks Again Yammy ? ??

-00- -00-

Look at all the positive comments mate, no bigging anything up just telling the truth. Even when you say you haven't really lost a toe 2 toe you say you were lucky, very humble. You are on the right path now. Everything happens for a reason.

Andrew Williams

You look like you’ve done it all. Top video

Sy Bennett

Good craic sammy on to part 2 ??
