She registered her channel on 29 October 2019. She used to upload video statuses on WhatsApp before she created the YouTube channel. “I used to create 30 seconds video statuses on WhatsApp and people would enjoy, laugh and most of them would say I deserve a bigger platform like YouTube then I decided to do it.” She says.
Lethabo biggest challenge is not having a camera and lightning equipment for her videos, for now she uses her cellphone. She is planning to reach 2000 subscribers and 4000 hours watch time in order to get royalties she will use to purchase her camera.
