Henry Desagu Downfall: From 10 Million Views to Struggling to Reach 10k Views on YouTube

Despite his once-massive following of over 500,000 subscribers on YouTube, comedian Henry Desagu, also known as Ithagu Kibicho, seems to be encountering a decline in his popularity as his fan base diminishes.

Recent observations on his YouTube channel indicate that Desagu, previously celebrated as one of the most prominent online comedians, is struggling to attract substantial views on his recent uploads, with many videos receiving fewer than 20,000 views.

Just four years ago, Desagu could effortlessly accumulate millions of views on a single video, but it’s apparent that he has been unable to maintain this level of consistency.

Many speculate that his decline commenced when he began prioritizing advertisements over the content that initially propelled him into the spotlight.

In a celebratory post from four years ago, Desagu enthusiastically announced reaching the milestone of 500,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, expressing his gratitude to his fans for their unwavering support since he launched the channel in 2016.

Since 2020, Desagu has amassed a total of 674,000 subscribers and has uploaded 510 videos.

Desagu gained fame in 2016 when he became synonymous with confronting sponsors and advocating for the rights of Team Mafisi.
