New York | The American media platform Ozzy is out of business after its leaders revealed unbelievable lies in an attempt to attract investors.
Requested by the AFP, OG did not comply, or its managing director Carlos Watson, after announcing that the board of directors had ceased operations, several American media reported Friday.
Launched in 2013 by journalist and founder Carlos Watson and News Channel Star, Ozzy is backed by individuals such as Lauren Powell Jobs, the widow of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, and Google’s legal officer.
According to the Crunchbase database, Ozzy Media raised a total of $ 70 million from investors.
Like many other media-born media outlets such as BuzzFeed and Refinery29, the platform is intended as a mix of informative and entertaining content articles, podcasts and videos.
But, according to a survey New York Times Published on Sunday, it appears that company leaders have voluntarily increased the number of visits to the platform and views on other sites, mainly YouTube.
In a conference call with Goldman Sachs Bank representatives last February, Ozi said it plans to invest $ 40 million in the capital, with company co-founder and number two Sameer Rao also speaking as a YouTube official.
Speaking to bankers under this fake identity, Sameer Rao explained that Ozzy had achieved success in Uzbek in his video views and advertising revenue.
Goldman Sachs messengers quickly found relief, and Carlos Watson apologized to the bank.
Ozzy also performed his talk show Carlos Watson Show, Launched in 2020, “the first Amazon Prime Talk Show”, Amazon’s video platform, without a Seattle giant contract and when the show was not promoted or funded by Amazon.
In addition, Ozzy was able to welcome a host of prestigious guests to the event, although it was confirmed that it would soon be broadcast on the American cable channel A&E, but no deal was reached.
