Namewee almost lost all of his videos on YouTube two days ago due to a hack on Wednesday, 6 April.

Videos that he had worked on for nearly 13 years went missing and his username was replaced with a sentence in Russian.

Fortunately, he managed to recover his videos back on the same day and thanked those who helped him get his account back in order. He also thanked his fans for supporting him all these years.

However, Namewee’s Facebook post on Thursday, 7 April, indicated that not everyone was on his side.

These parties claimed that the ‘missing videos’ dilemma was just a publicity stunt.

In classic Namewee fashion, he responded to the allegations and said that thousands of people helped to get back his YouTube account.

According to his post, the parties that helped him were:

  • YouTube headquarters in Malaysia
  • YouTube Taiwan
  • YouTube Asia
  • WebTVAsia
  • His colleagues in his company

He added that all these parties combined totalled at least 1,000 people, and they have put in a lot of effort to save his channel.

If this was a gimmick, I’ll be ratted out if one of the thousand people decides to discredit me.

Namewee wrote on Facebook.

Namewee ended his post by saying that whoever chose to believe that it was a gimmick must be suffering some form of brain damage.
