That’s right y’all. The band’s back together. Here is the comeback nobody wanted from the couple who just really need to get some professional help.
If you are yet to be informed, an Indian couple by the name of Sugu and Pavithra, started a Youtube channel earlier this year and made a name for themselves cooking Indian dishes beloved across Malaysia and beyond. From cooking Murukku to chicken and crab curry, there was really no dish Pavithra could not cook. And the best part about the Youtube channel?
It was the story that came alongside it- the couple, originally having had to struggle for their living with Sugu’s sole income as a plantation worker, had now made it big using only one stupid wok, a basic phone camera, raw talent and plenty of heart as one Twitter commentator said it.
Well, all that changed one night last Sunday when she was given the award of recognition from the mayor of Ipoh. After violently lashing out at her for failing to mention his name during the award ceremony, Sugu who was released on a bail paid by Pavithra, has deleted the Youtube videos owing them their claim to fame, he told Bernama earlier today.
The husband of S. Pavithra, 28, said the he erased all 98 videos on the channel because of several personal factors.
“I was the one who deleted all the videos after what happened,” he said.
On July 24, Sugu pleaded not guilty at the Sessions Court here on the charge of carrying an offensive weapon and causing injury to his wife with a mobile phone and a sickle.
Last Tuesday, Pavithra said she had forgiven her husband and retracted her police report against him.
Commenting further, Sugu, a former estate worker in Sungai Siput, said they lost their income from YouTube which was substantial following their decision to delete all their videos.
“But that is okay, because I have hands, feet, to look for a job. Even before this (becoming a YouTuber), I earned money by working,” he said, adding that he was thankful to their loyal followers who now number 787,000.
