Konde Worldwide signee Ibraah has suffered a major blow after his YouTube channel was terminated.
A sneak peek of the singer’s YouTube page shows that the channel is not available.
It is not clear why the channel was terminated but it is speculated it's due to copyright claims.
“This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated,” reads the message.
YouTube usually terminates accounts after issuing three strikes. The strikes are issued due to the violation of various YouTube policies.
However, channel owners can engage YouTube and resolve the matter hence restoration of the accounts.
By press time, Ibraah’s management had not issued a comment regarding the termination.
Notably, Ibraah becomes the second Konde Worldwide signee to land in trouble with YouTube.
His boss Harmonize has suffered a fair share of run-ins with YouTube due to copyright claims.
If the YouTube account is not restored as soon as possible, Ibraah will lose valuable revenue considering that most bongo musicians depend on the platform to earn a living.
Since making a debut early this year, Ibraah has made an upward trajectory releasing several hits that have ruled the airwaves across the region.
