Twitch Streamer Kai Cenat Breaks Platform's Massive Subscriber Record

Twitch star Kai Cenat hit a massive milestone on the last day of Black History Month. The 21-year-old streamer became the platform's most subscribed channel in the world Tuesday (February 28) after hitting 300,000 subscribers, smashing the previous record.

Cenat, who quickly became a powerhouse on the Amazon-owned website, kicked off the beginning of February with a "subathon," where a streamer stays live 24 hours a day until viewers stop subbing. During this non-stop stream, Cenat chatted, played games, slept, and even brought on guests like comedian Reggie Brown and a Barack Obama impersonator.

The rising star told his Twitch chat this was the hardest thing he's ever done.

“This has been the hardest thing of my life, and I’m glad I did it," Cenat said. "I challenged myself. I said I was going to do something — we said we were going to do something, and we did it! We did it, bro!”

The previous record, 283,066 subscribers, was set by popular streamer Ludwig Ahgren in April 2021. Ludwig himself congratulated Cenat on smashing the record on Twitter.

"Congrats to @KaiCenat for breaking the all-time subscriber record 🎉 very deserved," the YouTube-exclusive streamer wrote. "@Twitch now pay the man before you lose another record breaker."

This is one of many records the streamer broke last month. On February 22, Cenat became the most-subscribed Black streamer on Twitch. He also promised to end the subathon once it goes over 30 days, but we'll have to wait and see what the streaming icon does next.
