Over the last few days, there has been a weird occurrence, some highly viewed music videos have been missing from YouTube .
Specific Kenyan music videos bizarrely disappeared from YouTube, and with no context or apparent reason.
One of the artistes whose videos faced the deletion was singer Otile Brown, whose videos with over 3 million views were ejected from the platform. Some of the videos included the hits Dusuma, Chaguo la Moyo, Jamila and Aiyana.
Days later, the videos have been reinstated. In an official press release, the singer’s team thanks fans for their patience and ssues an apology for any inconveniences caused, saying the matter is currently being handled.
They, nonetheless, insist that they may not get into the specifics of what exactly ensued, but insist that they are hard at work with YouTube/Google to resolve whatever may have gone wrong.
“We endeavor to keep you updated as more progress is realized. Let us keep supporting the new projects that we will be releasing moving forward. We really appreciate the constant and unending support from you!” they promise in conclusion.
The Swahili crooner just dropped the video to his Jeraha collaboration with Jovial.
Efforts by The Sauce to get more information on these deletions proved futile. Other artists who were affected include, Nadia Mukami, Bensoul and Nviiri the Storyteller.
