  • Churchill Show comedian Nasra Yussuf is heartbroken after losing her entire Ksh 100,000 pay to hackers.

    In a detailed Instagram statement she made on the evening of Sunday, August 30, the soft-spoken entertainer disclosed that her YouTube account, which had amassed 53,000 subscribers, had been hacked.

    She also noted that she lost the money, which was her entire month's pay on the platform after continuously uploading content to grow her fan base.

    "I'm sad today, very sad. Some people are heartless. I worked so hard to get 53,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel. Sometimes, I did content while I was sick, I dedicated 99% of my time creating content for my fans who are always supportive.

    "Someone decided to torture me when I was about to taste the fruits of my labour. I made a mistake,I trusted someone with my log in details,only for the person to disappoint me," she disclosed.

    She explained that the hacker, who was a person known to her, did not alter with her account because log-in details were still intact.

    "My account has been hacked by someone who is very intelligent... The person didn't change my login details, they didn't change my name, they didn't do anything to raise an alarm... All they did was make me work hard on the channel so that it benefits them.

    "Right now I can only post videos on the channel, nothing else. Just last month, I made the hacker a whooping Ksh 100,000," she added.

    She further added that the discovery left her shocked and some point, she contemplated shutting down her YouTube business for good.

    "I was confused,,I thought about the 50,000 subscribers I made and the thought of starting again (discouraged me). Guess what gave me the strength to get back up? You my fans," she added.

    Nasra has created an entirely new account that has so far amassed more than 1,290 subscribers.

    Nasra had created her initial account in October 2018 but turned it into a money-minting platform in March and titled it Cook and Laugh which she co-hosted with her mother.
