Tanzanian Legendary Singer AliKiba has been forced to explain why his latest video “Mvumo wa Radi” has backfired on YouTube and is no longer attracting more views.
In a well written post, Alikiba has disclosed that his team already has the information that his video meant to promote his Energy drink Mofaya is not making progress on his Youtube Channel.
“Tunafahamu tatizo la kutokuongezeka kwa views kwenye akaunti ya YouTube ya ALIKIBA, na tupo kwenye mawasiliano ya moja kwa moja na makao makuu ya YouTube Africa ambao wanafanya kila jitihada kutatua tatizo hili kwa haraka iwezekanavyo. Shukrani kwa uvumilivu wenu na support mnayoendelea kutupa! Endeleeni kuangalia video ya We are fully aware of the viewership matter on ALIKIBA YouTube Channel and we are in direct contact with the YouTube Africa Headquaters who are doing their very best to solve this matter as soon as possible. We thank you for your concern and constant support and keep watching the video. ” said Alikiba in a statement.
Drop in Viewership
Anxiety had gripped Alikiba’s camp with Fans raising concern on why the viewership of the video was not increasing despite trending in different countries.
The Rockstar CEO, released the song “Mvumo wa Radi” to promote his new energy Drink Mofaya that was unveiled at his wedding reception.
At some point the song registered a drop in viewership, a thing that had never happened to King Kiba. Others where quick to judge stating that his Handshake with Diamond Platnumz had affected his success in the music industry.
Tanzanian Activist based in Los Angeles Mange Kimambi, also decided to school Tanzanians on why Alikiba’s video was not making progress.
"Ali don’t be stressed na wabongo kuhusu views za YouTube. You are not perfect, you are human. Hao wote wanaochongoa midomo kuhusu views hawana mbele wala nyuma. Ila na wewe tatizo lako moja, unakaa too long hutoi ngoma so siku ukiachia ngoma watu wanakuwa na high expectations so inakuwa ni ngumu sana kwako kureach hizo expectations. Ingekuwa unatoa nyimbo 3-4 time a year ingekuwa poa.By the way sipo kiTeam nimeongea sababu naona kama sio haki vile." reads Mange Kimambi's explanation
A boy from Tandale
" Album nzima imeflop ila watu@bado tuliposti kutoa pongezi za album na hatukumsema vibaya ila nyimbo moja tu ya Kiba kutokuwa hit mnataka kumla nyama mtoto wa mwenzenu?? Mwacheni bwana. Kupungua kwa views youtube ni kutokana na audits za Youtube. You can google then mtaelewa zaidi why views zimepungua. Wasafi hawahusiki kabisa na hizo views kupungua na hakuna uchawi wowote. Kuna sababu maalum why views za Youtube huwa zinapungua, hapo ni kwamba Youtube wenyewe wamekuta kuna views zina matatizo ndo maana wameziondoa." reads Mange Kimambi's explanation
