About Pokimane

Few streamers had a bigger year than Pokimane, who gained 450K+ new Twitch followers in 2017, joining the platform’s top 100 most-followed accounts. The Moroccan-born gamer revived her account in August 2017 after posting only two videos the year prior. The 21-year-old’s increased popularity in the gaming world led her to add over 300K Instagram followers and 550K+ subscribers on YouTube this year, as well. Although known predominantly for streaming League of Legends gameplay and commentary, her fans can also find fashion and beauty tutorials, or streams of her exploring the world outside of games. She also helped form Offline TV, a group of creators from the gaming and Twitch communities who come together for comedic reality shows about their life together.
