Google Boss Reveals Why They Terminated Andrew Kibe’s YouTube channel

Dorothy Ooko, the Head of Communications & Public Affairs for Google in Africa, has provided an explanation regarding the termination of YouTube channels operated by Andrew Kibe.

In response to a fan’s inquiry on September 17, Ooko stated that Kibe had breached the platform’s policies. Initially, Kibe had faced limitations on uploading videos but still retained access to his channel.

Ooko further clarified that despite these restrictions, Kibe circumvented them and persisted in uploading content. As a result, all channels associated with him were ultimately terminated.

“Kibe violated YouTube’s Terms of Service. While he was restricted from using YouTube features, including uploading videos on his channel, he used another channel to get around these restrictions aka circumvention, resulting in the termination of all his channels,” she said.

However, Kibe dismissed the explanation and asked why he did not receive formal communication about the termination of his channels and what terms he had violated.

“Sounds so pedestrian. Can you show me the emails of the violations? That is the procedure, right?

“I mean there is no way YouTube permanently blocks any channel that has over 3,000 videos with no paper trail. Be serious with your job,” he responded.

Andrew Kibe’s channel was terminated on September 11, and he took to his X (formerly Twitter) to express his frustration with the loss of his channel.

At the time, his YouTube account had nearly 500,000 subscribers, 159.5 million views and 3,000 videos.

He said that after losing his account, he would launch his own video content platform, Yafreeka.

Kibe started his career as a radio presenter at NRG Radio, where he co-hosted the breakfast show with Kamene Goro.

He later moved to Kiss FM, where he hosted the morning show alongside Kamene Goro.

In 2020, Kibe quit his radio job at Kiss 100 and relocated to the USA, where he now creates and promotes content on various social media platforms.
