For days now, there has been an online war between Next Media’s DJ Roja and Canadian based Ugandan entertainer, Ddumba Muzafaru.
Popularly known for doing song covers/ challenges, Ddumba claimed that DJ Roja reported, and got his YouTube channel that had over 8,000 subscribers taken down.
Ddumba said that it all started after he recorded himself singing along to DJ Roja and Slick Stuart’s song dubbed Sunday on which they feature Allan Tonix. Before he (Ddumba) knew it, YouTube sent him a message that the DJs had requested them to take down his account over copyright issues.
In Roja’s defense, Rojay hosted a social media expert on his After 5 show on Tuesday to educate viewers on reasons that can have one’s account deleted.
The expert said that before YouTube takes down one’s channel, it first sends warnings three times, but if one fails to act towards these warnings, then the account is taken down.
Despite giving clear information on how social media terms and conditions work, fans still think that maybe there was another way Roja would have used to handle this matter, instead of having Ddumba’s channel deleted.
