Playing Fortnite with Ninja
The announcement of the stream also appeared on the official twitter page of the Twitch platform.
In early February, Twitch employees reported that the platform record among individual streamers was owned by a gamer with the nickname DrDisrespect, which was watched simultaneously by 388 thousand viewers. Judging by the numbers, now Ninja got the lead.
During the match, Drake said that he started playing Fortnite about two months ago. He spends his time playing mainly in the studio when moments of idleness occur in the process.
In a conversation, Drake said that he believes the cause of the popularity of Fortnite is the dedication of Epic Games, which constantly adds new content to the game. The rapper is sure that in the future the studio should focus on updating the existing maps instead of creating new ones.
Also, a Canadian singer said that he loves pizza with pineapples.
Shortly after the start of the stream Ninja rapper Post Malone suggested Drake to play in the Battlegrounds.
