According to YouTube presenter Vincent Mboya, a bunch of people hacked the Bongo superstar's account and went live on his account to talk about topics that YouTube does not allow. These were the same persons who hacked Citizen TV and Diana Marua's accounts and had them erased as well, according to Mboya.
