Ninja and Drake 'Fortnite' Stream Has Made Twitch Celebrity a Thing, Officially

Ninja and Drake 'Fortnite' Stream Has Made Twitch Celebrity a Thing, Officially

The stream is about to reach 600,000 viewers - that's over four times the high view count for Overwatch League tonight.

Ninja reportedly gained another 90k subscribers for the stream, netting him at least $250k (179k) in revenue a month.

For those that don't know about Fortnite, think of it as a hybrid of an open-world sandbox (like Minecraft) and a multiplayer online battle royale game (like PUBG).

The premise of the game is nearly identical to that of Player Unknown Battlegrounds (PUBG), another online game that has seen huge popularity on PC and Xbox One. What a team. What a superb collection of talent.

After Drizzy could be heard eating something while playing, he said: "Man honestly, I'm usually eating healthy but I had pizza tonight because it's so late".

We have replaced the live feed of Ninja's stream with the VOD of the entire celebrity filled affair for those who may have missed the momentous occasion.

Later, the duo headed to their Bandra residence, where Aamir cut two chocolate cakes and interacted with the media. Actor Aamir Khan is known to throw surprises. "I am here (in this world) because of my mother".

Epic Games' "Fortnite" is set in a post-apocalyptic future where players have to scavenge for weapons and resources.

Oh, yes. Drake is already the source of multiple memes, which made it extremely easy to meme the heck out of his hour streaming with Ninja.

Fortnite has risen to become the most popular video game in the world at the moment. According to TMZ, Fortnite's planning to have a celebrity "Party Royale" game with hundred players split between fifty celebrities and fifty pro gamers.

The collaboration looks to make use of Fortnite's newly implemented cross-platform play, as Drake is known to use a PlayStation 4 with a Scuf controller and Ninja dedicates his time to playing on PC. The streamer was formerly a pro player in Halo and also won the Gamescom PUBG invitational previous year.
