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

Despite having amassed over 500,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, comedian Henry Desagu, also known as Ithagu Kibicho, seems to be experiencing a decline in his popularity as his fan base diminishes.

Recent observations on his YouTube page indicate that Desagu, once celebrated as one of the foremost online comedians, is encountering difficulties in attracting significant views to his recent uploads, with many videos receiving less than 20k views.

Merely four years ago, Desagu could effortlessly rack up millions of views on a single video, yet it’s apparent that he has struggled to sustain this level of engagement.

There is widespread speculation that his decline commenced when he began prioritizing advertisements over the authentic content that initially propelled him into the limelight.

In a jubilant post from four years ago, Desagu gleefully announced the attainment of 500,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, expressing profound gratitude to his fans for their steadfast support since he launched the channel in 2016.

From 2020 onward, Desagu has garnered a total of 674,000 subscribers and has uploaded 510 videos.

Desagu ascended to fame in 2016 when his name became synonymous with challenging sponsors and advocating for the rights of Team Mafisi.
