Popular hitmaker, Tanasha Donna has spoken for the first time after a shocker on You Tube that saw her You Tube Channel disappear mysteriously.
A spot-check by this writer reveals that her YouTube channel has been terminated with all the content on it.
Following the setback, the diva took to Instagram to address the matter, explaining that she will be back on the screens soon once the issue is resolved.
The Gere hit-maker added that somebody tried to hack her YouTube account and it was consequently suspended and assured her fans that the account will be back as her team is working on resolving the issue.
“We are working on getting back my YouTube Channel ASAP. Someone tried to hack it so YouTube suspended the Channel however it is being resolved as we speak” said Tanasha Donna.
The account was one of the most popular ones and it remains unclear how long it will take before the channel is back, but one thing for sure is that it hasn’t been terminated permanently.
She joins a growing list of celebrities who have run into trouble with their You Tube accounts as hackers up their games and with the media giant cracking down on those who violate its regulations.
Others who suffered a similar fate in the past year are Akothee, comedian Flaqo and gospel artist Mr Seed.
The self-declared president of single mothers had her account suspended due to copyright issues caused by parody accounts that were uploading her work, costing her millions.
The account suspension also exposed the singer’s management who had allegedly been pocketing earnings from the channel.
“I work like a dog, someone else pockets when spice stole my content uploaded my songs on different channels with a different name and collected my revenues with projects they din’t spend a penny on,” Akothee said.
Flaqo who also suffered the same fate and took to social media to express his anguish; “At this point, it’s really exhausting…Please report all channels that are not mine but have my content in it…Boycott…I’ve worked so hard to be disrespected every damn time, malice… Why…?”
He added: “Because I’m just about to launch my show on YouTube it’s maliciously taken down… Am not dropping the mic by the way so if you maliciously want me out of the industry sorry… We will be back with twice the energy, this war of kicking me out of social media every time is getting a little personal.”
Gospel singer Mr Seed also had his account terminated after someone hacked it.
At the time the singer had just released a new hit: Ogopa Mungu, that was also taken down. Just as it was expected, Mr. Seed was furious about his channel getting terminated.
“My YouTube Channel has been Hacked. A while back I have been receiving notifications on my YouTube Channel that someone has been trying to log in but with no avail. Waking today and getting my New Song OGOPA MUNGU deleted is heartbreaking and saddening to my hard work. I will be posting for now my songs on the Starborn Empire Channel until I sort out my channel and get it back to full control. I Shall Overcome. #OgopaMungu,” he wrote.
