Many wondered what could have caused the 'Teaness' to lose yet another account? But the man himself revealed this information on his news Instagram account aptly named, Uncle  Edgar.

"This is my new Instagram account. Let's start again together, not going up. We just adapt and keep moving," he wrote.

He also claimed that an expose' he had made against Kiss100 Fm presenter, Kamene Goro, was the reason Instagram had cited for deactivating his page. 

"This is the story that got my account disabled. They cited I went against community guidelines-harassment. Kuonewa tu," the controversial blogger mourned.

Meta the parent company of Instagram has become very radical when it comes to deactivating accounts that don't follow their community guidelines.

In fact, in September last year, the company was grilled by American Senators about the impact its apps are having on younger users.

This was based on a report that indicated the company was aware that Meta-owned Instagram could have a "toxic" effect on teen girls.

"We now know that Facebook routinely puts profits ahead of kids' online safety. We know it chooses the growth of its products over the well-being of our children...And we now know it is indefensibly delinquent in acting to protect them," Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal said in opening remarks at the hearing.
