Lu Ke*3 was a Malawi resident when he was exposed by BBC Africa Eye, which reported he had used local children to film personalised greetings videos, some of which included racist content.
These videos can be bought for up to $70 (£55) on Chinese social media and internet platforms.
Lu Ke denied making derogatory videos.
He said he made his videos in order to spread Chinese culture to the local community.
In one of the videos seen by the BBC, a group of young children is made to chant - in Chinese - "I'm a black monster. My IQ is low", clearly unaware of what they are saying.

I just reached an agreement with Malawian FM that both #China& #Malawi have zero tolerance for racism. China has been cracking down on those unlawful online acts in the past yrs. We’ll continue to crack down on such racial discrimination videos in the future. https://t.co/c9nO1MiGpa— 吴鹏 Wu Peng (@WuPeng_MFAChina) 2022年6月14日
