Rappers, musicians and vloggers are always going on about views and while that may mean nothing to you, it means cold hard cash to them.
You see, once you cross the 100,000 views mark, YouTube South Africa pays, well into the thousands of rands. Just ask vlogger Thando Hlophe:
2 days ago, most of AKA's smash hits (that were coincedentally produced while we was still under Vth Season) were deleted then re-uploaded to his YouTube channel, therefore resetting the views back to zero.
According to Social Blade, his channel, which was created back in 2014 has thus far amassed 5,160,130 cumulative (total views). But, the site also calculated that in the last 30 days, the channel has lost 10,516,811 views. That amounts to up to $43,000 in revenue which, at the current exchange rate is R533,488.10.
AKA's keen-eyed fans picked this up and mentioned it in the comments and although some thought he did this to stick it to Vth Season, others thought this was sabotage at work.
AKA then took to Twitter to confirm this in a Kanye West-esque fashion...
He then alerted the rest of his fans to what was happening...
And proceeded to plug his upcoming project...
