MANILA, Philippines — A month after they bid farewell on YouTube, vlogger couple Jayzam Manabat and Camille Trinidad returned to the social media platform. 

In their first vlog on their new YouTube channel, the couple popularly known as JaMill explained why they deleted their channel. 

“Matagal na kaming nagiging toxic. Okay kami sa araw-araw noon kasi nasa healing stage kami ni Camille. 'Di talaga maganda 'yung mga nangyayari sa amin. Pangit ng 2021 sa 'min,” Jayzam said. 

“Dito kami sinubok. Sinubok ang relasyon namin sa iba't ibang klaseng paraan. 'Yung mga alam n'yo at mga bagay na 'di n'yo alam. Walang umaawat sa 'min. Mas nakakatakot nga 'yung 'pag nasa mali ka, mapi-feel mo na tama lahat ng ginagawa mo. Pero kapag humaharap ka na sa tama, saka ka hinahatak ng mga kampon ng kadiliman,” he added. 

 

 

Jayzam said that there came a point that they questioned their love for each other because of their YouTube channel. 

“Umabot na sa punto na nandito ka lang ba sa 'kin dahil may channel tayo.' Nagkakwestyunan na kami ni Camille. Baka kung wala 'yung channel na 'yan matagal ka nang umalis sa feeling ko,’” he said. 

Camille admitted that she’s the one who deleted their channel. 

“Ako ang nag-delete ng channel kasi na-trigger ako. Nagsisi naman ako guys. And nakakalungkot naman talaga na isang iglap... bakit ko ginawa?” Camille said. 

“Naintindihan kita. Wala akong pake kahit dinilete mo. Ikaw ang mahalaga. Ikaw ang mahal ko. Mas mahal kita kaysa sa channel na yun,” Jayzam told Camille.

“Alam kong pinaghirapan namin 'yon. Ang dami naming sinacrifice para dun. Pero nangibabaw sa isip ko na mas mahalaga sa 'kin si Camille. Mahal ko 'tong taong to talaga,” he added. 

It can be recalled that the couple deleted their old YouTube channel last month a few days after the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) issued Circular No. 97-2021 to remind social media influencers of their tax duties as mandated by law.
