Fileboxer Will Be Closing Down Its File Hosting Services


This has to be the hardest thing I have ever done. I am writing this to announce that Fileboxer will be closing its file hosting services. From the 1st of August 2017, users will not be able to upload or download files. Fileboxer has been online for over 3 years.

Fileboxer is close to my heart and closing it down is painful. I have spent a lot of time to get Fileboxer to where it is today. Through Fileboxer, I made a lot of friends and acquaintance. And it had became a home to a lot of musicians from the Southern Africa.

There are several reasons on why I am closing it down. One of those reasons is that users where abusing the service by sharing copyrighted music. And this was getting me into trouble with record labels. One reason is that I was failing to get the right model to monetize it.

For this, I would like to apologise to all the users of Fileboxer. And to everyone who was there from the beginning till this time, I am sorry but it was about time I let Fileboxer go.

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who kept me interested to keep working on Fileboxer. Hopefully, this won’t be the end of the relationships I built through Fileboxer.
