YouTube Creator Stories: How Lowi Sahi Makes Every Second Count

Zain Masri / October 2017

One of the main motivations that inspired Lowi Sahi to start his channel was to enable a fan to explore Dubai through his view.

A few years ago, an Iraq-based fan connected with him and opened up about her diagnosis with a terminal illness. She expressed that she was unable to travel due to her illness, but enjoyed experiencing life in Dubai through his content. So, he decided to upload regular videos to his YouTube channel to share an immersive and personal window to his life. This helped him realize the power video can have. It is a way to share your perspective, culture, humor and make someone's day. And although his fan is, sadly, no longer with us, Lowi keeps her memory alive through his content.

To date, he uploaded more than 520 videos and garnered over 150 million views. His success led to him establishing an audience of over one million subscribers and his impressive cinematography and engaging programming have contributed to his success on the YouTube platform.

His videos cover a diverse set of topics ranging from comedy to food to travels to his moments with friends and family and his most important message is to always make every second count. Text cannot quite capture his adventurous spirit the way this channel trailer can.
