PETALING JAYA: All videos on the Sugu Pavithra channel have been deleted.
It was discovered on Saturday (July 25) that the channel, which has some 785,000 subscribers with videos featuring cooking guides and recipes by husband-and-wife team M. Sugu and S. Pavithra, is depleted of content now.
Pavithra and her husband Sugu became YouTube sensations after they began uploading videos of her cooking on the channel during the movement control order (MCO), following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Within a few months, the couple garnered hundreds of thousands of subscribers, a silver YouTube Button, and even met Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who presented them with a camera tripod, a microwave oven, a rice cooker and cooking utensils on July 9.
On July 21, Pavithra received the title of “Ipoh City Icon”, which is given to Ipoh-born individuals for their success.
However, on July 24, Sugu was charged with hurting Pavithra at the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital premises’ parking lot and in possession of a sickle at the hospital.
After posting bail for him the same day, Pavithra said they no longer want the Ipoh City Icon and want to live normally and just want to focus on their YouTube channel.
