Eldoret-based Gospel musician Reuben Kigame is seeking police intervention after a hacker raided and pulled down his YouTube channel account.
According to the singer who launched the channel in 2015, it had bagged over 71,000 subscribers over the years as of Sunday, July 12.
Mr Kigame confirmed this sad act of the hacker going as far as changing his credentials in the middle of the night.
Confirming the incident through his Facebook page on Monday, July 13 Kigame wrote:
“We have confirmed that last night at about 1:59am, our Kigame Media TV YouTube channel was pulled down and deleted by a hacker who managed to get into my personal account, changed the credentials and obliterated it.”
According to Kigame, the hacker might have done it from Fort Wayne, USA.
He has since reported the matter to the police along with the necessary screenshots.
“We have notified, taken all the necessary screenshots and notified the police. Our digital records show it was done in Fort Wayne, United States of America,” the singer wrote.
Kigame revealed the hack was done shortly after the channel had uploaded a new video of their Sunday service that day.
The video had allegedly already been viewed over a thousand times.
Apologizing to his fans, Kigame said despite that hitch, all glory belongs to God.
“The only way to respond to the action is to give glory to God. We apologize to all our fans and appeal for patience as we continue to pursue this matter,” he added.
Kigame is known for his songs Huniachi, Enda Nasi, Usiniache, Ombi Langu, Pokea Sifa and Sweet Bunyore among many more.
