Andrew Kibe, the outspoken and often controversial blogger, has found himself at the center of a trending online spectacle after his YouTube channel, boasting over 400,000 subscribers, was abruptly terminated by the platform.

YouTube cited a violation of its terms of service as the reason for the channel’s closure.

Kibe, renowned for his provocative stance against feminism and his outspoken criticism of women and celebrities deviating from traditional societal norms, recently disclosed that his YouTube account received a strike.

Notably, Kibe had previously made headlines when he revealed that the popular couple, Terence Creative, had blocked him on social media.

The rift between Kibe and Terence Creative began when Kibe criticised the comedian, alleging that he had run out of creative ideas for producing humorous content.

Kibe didn’t spare Terence’s wife, Milly Chebby, as he implied that she had a significant influence on her husband’s content.

This feud between the two personalities played out in the public eye, attracting fans and critics’ attention.

Interestingly, in light of Kibe’s YouTube channel termination, Terence Creative appeared to extend sympathy to the content creator. Terence expressed his condolences by stating:

“Very sad. I’ll miss my Nganuthia whips.”

Pritty Vishy laughed and celebrated the termination saying, “😂😂maridadi pozi tena pozi kabishaaa (Thumb up for that!).”

However, the precise circumstances surrounding the termination of his channel, which had amassed nearly 500,000 subscribers, 159.5 million views, and featured over 3,000 videos, remain somewhat unclear.

Based in Texas, Kibe has been compelled to make significant adjustments to his online presence following the deletion of his YouTube channel by Google.

He announced his move to a new platform called Yafreeka and assured his followers that he would maintain engagement on TikTok, Instagram, Rumble, and X.

“I have been testing out the live feature on Yafreeka, and I am confident we shall be going Live this Friday. Sign up there and start uploading your content. We are the content cartel! Meanwhile, catch me tonight at the same time here on X, Rumble, Instagram, and TikTok. The train left the station, bruh,” he declared.

Kibe, who recently acquired a luxurious Mercedes Benz S550 worth Sh13 million, frequently emphasizes his success when confronted with accusations of financial instability.

The closure of Kibe’s prominent YouTube account has triggered mixed reactions from fans and critics alike, sending him soaring to the top of Twitter trends.

Many of his devoted supporters have rallied behind the content creator on social media, promising to follow him to his new channel.

One fan, identified as Jackson, remarked, “Andrew Kibe and Amerix are two of the biggest waves in the country; they are good role models for men.”
