People Are Hating Technical Guruji After Xiaomi Head Slammed Him For Being Bias

| Published on January 31, 2019

Influencer Marketing is at its peak as YouTubers and Instagram bloggers have become the new celebrities. The fact that they connect with the audience in a way that people can relate to their lives makes their influence much stronger than the Bollywood stars.

Gaurav Chaudhary popularly known as Technical Guruji is a very well known name in India’s online smartphone community. In a very short time span of 3 years, he has managed to gain millions of followers. His YouTube Channel mainly talks about smartphone related things such as unboxing, reviews. Recently, he has been involved in a controversy for the latest video he published on Technical Guruji’s YouTube channel which focuses on Samsung’s new M series smartphones.

Here is the video:

One can easily understand why Samsung opted for Gaurav to launch their smartphone. But Xiaomi’s global VP and India MD Manu Kumar Jain started this debate on whether it’s correct for tech bloggers to be on stage at product launches especially when your work involves reviews as well.

In a tweet, Manu talked about the possibility of money exchanging hands in return of endorsement
