'PBB' alum Fumiya Sankai announces Youtube hiatus

Fumiya Sankai, former "Pinoy Big Brother: Otso" housemate, has announced that he's taking a break from Youtube.

The 25-year-old Japanese personality is known for his funny antics on "PBB", but way before he entered Kuya's house, he had already been a vlogger and regularly updated on his Youtube channel called FumiShun Base.

On Sunday, September 6, Fumiya said he will be taking a break from FumiShun Base, which currently has two million subscribers.

"I don't know when I will be back on Youtube," he said, adding that he's unsure if his hiatus will take a "few weeks or a long time."

Fumiya came to this decision because he's been quite busy with other endeavors.

"Now, I'm preparing [for different things]. Medyo busy. It's very difficult [to do editing], because now, on this channel, I [personally do the editing]. That's why it's difficult to do other things. Editing is very [hard]."

He continued, "[I'm preparing] for my dream. I'm preparing for my clothing brand, and perfume brand."

Fumiya then said that he will make formal announcements soon, but for now, he can't say anything about his new ventures.

He also assured his subscribers that despite his temporary hiatus on Youtube, he will still be active on Instagram.

Fumiya's tandem with his co-'PBB' housemate Yamyam Gucong is adored by many — together, they were tagged as FumiYam. When they ended their "PBB" stint, they both joined the cast of comedy television series "Home Sweetie Home."
