Andrew Kibe plots comeback after YouTube setback
Kenyan content creator Andrew Kibe has boldly declared that his yet-to-be-launched new platform, ‘Yafreeka’, will dethrone YouTube from its stronghold in Africa.
Kibe’s words come in the wake of the unexpected closure of his YouTube channel a setback he claims to have anticipated and subsequently used as a catalyst for change.
Rather than succumbing to despair, Kibe says he took proactive measures to ensure his content and influence would continue to thrive in the digital realm.
Through his various social media channels, Kibe conveyed an unwavering determination, stating unequivocally that not even death could deter his pursuit of success.
The news of Kibe’s transition from YouTube to Yafreeka has sparked significant buzz within the online community.
Fans from all corners have been vocal in their support, with many expressing their anticipation of the new platform’s launch.
Kibe himself couldn’t help but comment on the reactions, saying, “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. Kucancelliwa 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.”
The essence of Kibe’s mission goes beyond personal success. He is a vocal advocate for Kenyan content creators to take charge of their own destinies and build their brands independently. He passionately asserts, “Let’s build our own thing so that we can be our own watchmen. How can they dominate us? That I cannot say what I want to because people will get offended.”
The former radio presenter displays an unwavering commitment to his craft and the freedom it affords him as he goes on to state, “I will never stop doing this unless you find a way to kill me, Ata kama nitabaki na watu wawili. I will whip you daily.”
Kibe’s YouTube channel was banned due to a violation of the app’s terms of service. The closure of his popular account was met with shock and celebration by fans and critics alike, propelling Kibe to the top of Twitter trends.
