Why YouTube deleted Otile Brown’s Sh500k worth video ‘Chaguo La Moyo’
Musician Otile Brown has been left counting losses after his hit music video ‘Chaguo La Moyo’ was pulled down from YouTube after hitting over 1.4 million views.
The video-sharing website deleted the video following copyright battles over the song.
A woman identified as Janet Kipsang contacted YouTube and laid claim to it.
The ‘Chaguo la Moyo’ video track, which Nairobi News understands was worth half a million shillings in production costs, is a collaboration between Otile and sultry singer Sanaipei Tande.
According to one of Otile’s handlers who spoke to Nairobi News, there is no Janet Kipsang but an enemy using the name as an alias to try and bring him down.
“There is no Janet Kipsang, that is just someone using that name as an alias to try and cripple Otile’s moves. But am sure the video will be back as the matters is being pursued.
“It was a very expensive project claiming about over Ksh500,000 in production because they kept postponing its shooting at Azzuri Hotel, Nairobi, due to unavoidable circumstances and you know that alone had a huge impact on logistics budget” the handler said.
In a post on social media, Otile blasted his enemies for the move and promised his fans more hits starting next week as his team follows up the YouTube matter.
“So YouTube @youtube just removed #chaguolamoyo from my channel with over 1.4million views due to copyright claims got me wondering why would someone claim for my own sh* . Damn this is so shady .
