Kenyans can finally know the reason why Andrew Kibe YouTube channel was terminated and that has been given by Dorothy Ooko, the Head of Communication at Google.
Ms. Ooko said that Kibe had violated the terms of service on the video hosting platform. What broke the camel’s back however was that he tried to circumvent Google’s restriction of him posting on his primary channel by posting on a secondary channel.
“Kibe violated YouTube’s Terms of Service. While he was restricted from using YouTube features, including uploading videos on his channel, he used another channel to get around these restrictions aka circumvention, resulting in termination of all his channels.”
Ooko revealed this information to an X user called Mariam who had called out Google saying that they were censoring Kibe.
“Cancel culture can not be allowed to take root in content creation. Andrew Kibe YouTube channel accounts is NOT about his message but a direct attack on the creative. Restore his accounts. Say NO to CANCEL CULTURE. @dorothyooko @YouTube @OleItumbi #andrewkibe. Andrew Kibe YouTube channel “
Kibe himself doesn’t seem to be in tears over the termination and has already moved on after the disappointment of losing a channel with close to 500k subscribers.
In an update, Kibe directed his loyal fans to a new platform where his content will be streaming. He made it clear that he is not backing down despite the major setback.
“Have been testing out the live feature on http://app.yafreeka.com and I am confident we shall be going LIVE this Friday. Sign up there and start uploading your content. We are the content cartel!
“Meanwhile, catch me tonight same time here on X, Rumble, Instagram, and TikTok. The train left the station bruh,” Kibe said.
Later on, he announced that he would be having an event dubbed Graduation Day, in Kenya this December.
“I will have an event in Kenya in December, It will be our graduation day. The event will have limited tickets going for Sh2,000.
We want a manageable crowd and for people to have fun, si mcome huko mkinuka mauvundo. It will be a whole event. I had put 300 but I was told no.”
Andrew Kibe now says he foresaw the closure of his YouTube channel.
Once that happened he started taking new measures.
Through his socials, Kibe says not even death can stop him
“Kibe is the best, the whole story has been trending the whole day. People have been saying I will go and wash old grannies.We have been waiting for this day. kunacelliwa a Youtube channel is that news?
They had not employed me. It doesn’t make sense. I now have my own platform Yafreeka.
By Friday we will be going live on that platform.”
