YouTube Removes Nviiri, Otile and Nadia Mukami’s Songs

Netizens are causing a stir online after noticing the removal of top songs by some Kenyan artists from YouTube. Some of the stars affected include Otile Brown, Nadia Mukami, Nviiri the Storyteller, Willis Raburu and Bensoul.

According to news site Pulse Live, “the songs are unavailable on the streaming platform following a technical hitch from their distributors side and that’s Ngomma VAS.”

Brown, however, seemingly begged to differ. The star, who has since lost 190 million views on the platform after the removal of hit tracks Dusuma, Chaguo La Moyo and Such Kinda Love, claimed that “some ‘people’ are deleting our videos/songs on YouTube”.

Nadia’s list of deleted songs include Wangu, Radio Love and Kolo, Nviiri’s are Pombe Sigara and Niko Sawa while Bensoul’s Nairobi and Raburu’s club banger Kalale also joined the bandwagon.

Introducing Instagram Video

On Tuesday, Instagram announced that it will be combining IGTV and Feed videos into one format called Instagram Video. The platform will also introduce a new Video tab on users’ profiles, where this combined video format will live, to make it easier for people to discover new video content.

That’s not all. According to a Facebook rep, new features including trimming, filters, ability to upload captions, people and location tagging will be available for all video, “to help make creating videos more seamless”.

Instagram video has officially rolled out on both iOS and Android globally.
