DJ Xclusive, one of the hottest DJs in Africa, might have found himself in a little internet mess.
The handsome DJ, successfully created a brand name for himself after he made a transformation from DJ to a front-line artiste, releasing his own new singles.
However, DJ Xclusive’s new video ‘Pangolo‘ (which features vocal performance form Timaya) dropped on December 11, 2013 and surprisingly gathered (as at the time of this report) over 6000 views, which experts are saying is impossible.
Here are their reasons why: –
Reason 1 – Anybody who knows their YouTube well will tell you videos which are recently published receive a 301+ view count because according to Ted Hamilton, product manager at YouTube, view counts are initially tracked by servers near the end user.
Reason 2 – Isn’t it strange that with a ‘suspect’ 6195 views, the video has not one ’like’ or ‘dislike’? STRANGE!
Reason 3 – There are 174 comments. Apartment from the YouTube uploader’s (DJ Xclusive) comment, all other 173 comments are made by non-Nigerians. With usernames like Jack Woods, Maybelle Beckerman, Darlene Morales, Julius Kiesling making random comments like ‘he is gonna conquer everything‘, ‘he is gonna conquer everything‘, ‘he has shown his difference with others‘, ‘he has good knowledge about it‘ and ‘it’s a nice collection to me‘, it’s not hard to figure they are all fake accounts.
Reason 4 – There are no statistics to support the 6000+ views.
Experts think what really happened is that: Those who uploaded Xclusive’s video apparently bought YouTube views. Yes, it’s that simple, just log onto authentichits.com and buy 2,150 Youtube Views for as low as $4.
When DJ Xclusive was questioned on the matter, he explained how the video garnered so many views. ‘We had it up but as unlisted and shared it with people so when we made it public, it already had the views‘.
Anomalies however still happen on YouTube and there’s a window of possibility that the video did get ACTUALLY that much views.
