Well-known Twitch streamer and Youtuber Pokimane has revealed she will be leaving the content creator group she co-founded.
Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is perhaps one of the biggest content creators and streamers in the world. Having amassed over 9.3 million followers on Twitch and 6.65m subscribers on Youtube has made her somewhat of a household name.
When she’s not streaming, she was helping co-found the content creator group OfflineTV. Despite working with the organisation since 2017, she has recently announced she will be “graduating” to go onto other things.
Pokimane Leaves OfflineTV
In a Youtube video posted on May 19, Pokimane revealed the news to her shocked fans. Luckily, this was a decision she says she made for the good of the org, and herself.
She spoke more about her decision in a livestream on May 20. According to her, being a full-time member of OTV involved a lot of commitments and responsibilities which she now struggles to find the time to manage.
Pokimane explained that leaving the org would give her the freedom to “dabble in different things” and “continue to evolve and explore” in her career.
However, she assures fans that she will always be up for collaborations with the other members in the future. She also made sure to make fans aware that there was “nothing wrong” and she still has a close relationship with the rest of the team.
“I would love to still be a part of future videos,” she said. “What does graduating look like? I don’t know. I’m the first one to do it… I feel like I’ll always be a part of the OTV family, especially living in LA. We can always do things together.”
What’s next for Pokimane?
As for her future plans, Anys is remaining tight-lipped. However, she has teased a “mystery project” that will launch later in the year. However we can assume that this project was a big factor in her choice to leave OfflineTV.
