Fans are still shocked at how a video like Wizkid’s Manya that has garnered over 1million views on his supposed StarBoy YouTube account in less than one week of its release can be taken down, either by the artiste or by YouTube.
Well, the video has been taken off the Starboy’s account and while some social media users are pointing fingers to his deal with Sony, stating that Wizkid is not permitted to put up more than a stipulated number of videos, Mut4y has come out to state the reason for this in his confirmation of a tweet which was posted by @ChampAceWalker1 stating that taking off the song from Wizkid’s account was due to the complaints made about the video being on two YouTube pages, especially if one of the pages (StarboyTV)is being operated by an unknown individual.
Watch #manya mutaY x #wizkid the video is still on YouTube I remembered we complained about it been on two YouTube page I think that is why #wizkid have to remove the one on his YouTube page video on https://t.co/b6jxM9D25C

This complaint is why YouTube had to take down the video and while most of you might be wondering why considering the StarboyTV has more views, it will also be good to know that although Wizkid wrote the song, StarboTV is not his, plus he appeared in the song as a featured artiste, hence it makes more sense for the song to be on Mut4y’s YouTube account.
Also confirming the above statement is the fact that Wizkid’s pinned tweet which directs fans to Mut4y’s YouTube dates back to 19th of November, which doesn’t add up as the video on StarboyTV was taken down two days ago.

This clearly shows that the only official video is the video on Mut4y’s YouTube account and an unknown individual has been impersonating Wizkid and his records as StarBoyTV.
To whom it may concern, the MANYA video is still very much available on YouTube on my own channel ONLY!!!
Don’t be deceived. Go Look it up on YouTube or follow the link in my instagram or Twitter…
Feel free to grab some Nkwobi while your at it! 😏
