Earlier today, he received a silver play button from Youtube after he hit 100,000 subscribers. The elated singer took to his Facebook page and thanked his fans for the support, adding that he doesn't take their support for granted.
'' We did it, together! Thank you my fans for this milestone. I do not take it for granted, '' he wrote and posted a video unveiling the precious gift.
YouTube Play Buttons are a series of gifts from YouTube that aim to recognize the most popular channels. They are based on a channel's subscriber count but are offered at the sole discretion of YouTube.
Each channel is reviewed before an award is issued, to ensure that the channel follows the YouTube community guidelines. The Silver Creator Award that Sammy Irungu received is for channels that reach or surpass 100,000 subscribers.
