Bongo star Diamond Platnumz had a long day yesterday after he lost his YouTube page. He was able to recover the page eventually.
The channel has been restored by YouTube’s management with his most recent release ‘Wonder’ off the First Of All’ EP trending at number one with over 2.7 million views.
Diamond wrote on his Instagram page indicating that the page was back. “Thank you, my Beloved,….my YouTube channel is back,” he said.
The channel was put out of commission by YouTube because it violated community guidelines.
A statement issued by WCB Wasafi’s head of digital department Kim Kayndo details that Platnumz’ channel was deactivated after hackers violated YouTube community guidelines when they were in control of the channel.
“Kutokana na channel ya Diamond Platnumz kudukuliwa jumapili iliyopita na wadukuzi kuingia live. 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,” Kim Kayndo posted.
Diamond’s channel has over 6 million subscribers, making him the owner of the channel with the most subscribers in sub-Saharan Africa. He joined the streaming platform on June 12, 2011 and so far has garnered over 1.6 billion views and counting.
