First of all, Who is JaMill and What is the Secret Behind Their YouTube Success?
You can’t talk about succesful Pinoy YouTubers without talking about Jayzam and Camille, the no-filter duo more popularly known as JaMill. From launching their channel in 2017, the two have gone a long way and have since completed their long-awaited house in Nueva Ecija. (The journey was fully-documented on their channel btw.)
Here’s what we know about the couple so far:

They take their jobs as YouTubers seriously.
The couple’s popularity pretty much grew overnight, which can be extremely overwhelming for anyone. But their humble beginnings is something they will never forget, and is one way for these content creators to ~stay grounded~.
BUT WHY DID THEY DELETE THEIR YOUTUBE CHANNEL? IS IT BECAUSE OF THE TAX IN PH?
The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in the Philippines announced on PTV-4 that they will still run after a YouTube vlogging couple even after they deleted their channel.
BIR said that deleting their social media channel will not excuse them from paying taxes.
According to the government agency, the couple, who the agency did not name, earned P50 to P100 million from YouTube in the past two years. BIR believed that they deleted their channel to avoid paying taxes. BIR sources said that the couple deleted their channel days after BIR Commissioner Caesar Dulay announced that social media influencers earning from YouTube and Facebook should pay taxes.
Recently, YouTuber couple Camille Trinidad and Jayzam Manabat, most popularly known as “JaMill,” deleted their channel to allegedly fix and focus on their relationship.
In her Twitter account, Camille bid goodbye to their 12 million YouTube followers and said that they are now signing off, but their relationship will be forever.
“JaMill is now signing off. Pero Jayzam & camille is (forever),” Camille said.
