Born in New York on December 16, 2001, to a Haitian father and Trinidadian mother, Kai began posting on social media during his school days. His dream was to be a comedian or a professional dancer. As of March 2023, he boasts close to 3.5 million subscribers on YouTube and around 4.7 million followers on Twitch, where his FIFA streams have been an instant hit.



Being Twitch's most subscribed streamer certainly comes with revenue. According to firstsportz Kai is estimated to be worth $1.82 million, raking in around $500,000 per year on YouTube ad revenue alone. On March 11, 2023, Cenat won the Streamer of the Year award at the Streamer Awards 2023. A documentary titled 30 Days, chronicling his career and subathon, was released on YouTube on March 15. Additionally, he made his acting debut in Polo G’s 'Single Distraction' and dropped his debut single, 'Bustdown Rollie Avalanche' with NLE Choppa in May 2022. He is also believed to earn between $66,995 and $136,133 per month from paid subscriptions. Twitch fans pay between $5 and $25 to subscribe to the internet sensation.


Why has Twitch banned its famous streamer?

The Streamer of the Year winner took to social media to address the situation by simply writing, “BANNED" on his Twitter account. 


It comes amid rumors that the streamer could be moving to Kick, which is an emerging streaming platform. Fans have been speculating about the latest development, and some think it could have something to do with Cenat’s recent stunt. However, according to Dexerto, sources told the publication that the ban was due to “repeated explicit simulated sexual activity in GTA. The reports also claim that the ban will be temporary.
