A day after being terminated, Bongo flavor superstar Diamond Platnumz can now breathe a sigh of relief after his YouTube channel was restored.
According to YouTube, the artist’s account that boasts over 6 million subscribers, had been discontinued for violating guidelines in the YouTube community.
A statement issued by WCB Wasafi’s head of digital department Kim Kayndo, attributed the deactivation to hackers who gained access to the account and violated the said YouTube community guidelines when they were in control of the channel.
“Kutokana na channel ya Diamond Platnumz kudukuliwa jumapili iliyopita na wadukuzi kuingia live,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Leo imezuiliwa na YouTube kutoka na maudhui yale kuvunja sharia za YouTube. Tumeshafanya mawasiliano ya awali kutatua tatizo hili. Tuendelee kuwa wavumilivu kila kitu kitakuwa sawa.”
The account has so far garnered over 1.6 billion views since its creation on June 12, 2011.
The channel has the most subscribers in the whole of Sub-Saharan Africa region.
