In an electrifying moment at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta during his “It’s All A Blur Tour,” Canadian rapper and singer Drake had a special shout-out for Twitch star Kai Cenat, sending fans into a frenzy on September 26, 2023. Alongside recognizing notable figures like British rapper Central Cee and basketball star Trae Young, Drake highlighted Kai Cenat, sparking a wave of excitement among the audience.
The X (formerly Twitter) community erupted with joy, lauding this acknowledgment, with user @dreamsecretalt expressing, “Kai made it, fr (for real), W moment!” The mention by Drake catapulted Kai Cenat into the limelight once again, resonating with fans globally.
This isn’t the first time these two icons have crossed paths in the public eye. On November 10, 2022, Kai Cenat engaged with Drake in a video call, resulting in a substantial $121,000 wager over a game of NBA 2K. Their recent collaboration at the concert solidified their camaraderie and entertained thousands in attendance.
The audience had diverse reactions to Drake’s pronunciation of Kai’s name, with one community member pointing out, “Nobody says Kai’s name right.” This playful banter added to the buzz surrounding the shout-out.
Kai Cenat, a pivotal figure in the livestreaming arena, has significantly impacted the industry. His remarkable feat of becoming the most-subscribed Twitch streamer of all time, surpassing “Ludwig” Ahgren after a sensational month-long subathon called Mafiathon, solidified his influence. The 21-year-old’s achievements were further celebrated as he secured the Streamer of the Year title for the second consecutive time at this year’s Streamy Awards.
The recognition from Drake at such a prominent event highlights Kai Cenat’s soaring influence and leaves fans eagerly anticipating what this collaboration might bring next.
