    YouTuber Lasizwe Dambuza quits as video content creator

    Controversial yet funny man, Lasizwe Dambuza has announced that he is quitting his career as a YouTuber.

    The comedian announced his decision on social media as he posted a video after creating comedy skits for years.

    As he was one of the most watched and followed content creators in South Africa, Dambuza revealed he had a difficult time and had to take a break to focus on his mental health. 

    At the same time, Lasizwe was one of few young adults on the African continent to be named in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for 2022 in June. 

    “I would like to thank everyone who has supported me on my YouTube Journey, but it is the end,” he captioned his post on Twitter.

    “I think we all saw it coming. Last year I hit the brick wall. I became so depressed I landed up in the hospital, I had a mental breakdown and I decided to choose myself,” he said in the video clip.

    “Not knowing how I’m going to sustain myself, not knowing how I’m going to live it was tough. 

    “I decided to stop doing YouTube for a year, just to figure out what’s going on with me. Learning that I’ve grown and you’ve watched me grow.”

    The content creator announced a new plan that is still in the pipeline, the African Network Channel.

    He told a local newspaper that he has been particular about his future, hoping to grow as a brand and no longer followed trends.

    “In the beginning, I was experimenting and having fun with everything,” he is quoted by TimesLIVE.

    “I was trying to figure out how I was going to turn this into a career and look at what other people are doing overseas. I’m a risk-taker. I love figuring out where is the trend and where it is going and being a trailblazer.”

    Lasizwe was among the most-watched content creators on YouTube in South Africa in 2021 and the video streaming platform issued a list of its top 10 content creators, placing MacG and Lasizwe third and fifth, respectively.
