LIRIK is a famous streamer from the Unitrd States of America. His real name is Saqib Zahid, which gives away his origins.
Many know him under his pseudonym only and he is one of the most popular Twitch creators in the world. He has over 2.3 million followers and the number is growing.
This is a huge number since Twitch isn’t really the biggest network out there, it’s still growing. He is sponsored by Discord, a company that creates software, and they enjoy helping him out.
Many think this is his primary source of earnings and they would be right.
Saqib Zahid was born on October 29th in 1990, which makes him almost 30 years old. He is American, although you can obviously tell that his parents immigrated into the United States.
His hometown is Boston in Massachusetts and he grew up there but he was born in Germany.
His family went through a few crisis while he was a kid, both financial and others, so he had been through rough times as a kid.
His primary interests in life were always computers and he enjoyed spending time playing games.
He tried to pursue education just like his parents wanted him to, but he was never too good at it. Saqib was always bored in class and wanted to be anywhere else but in school.
He then decided that he would later invest in his gaming career, since he enjoyed gaming, and this ended up paying off.
He work very hard because live streaming isn’t as simple as everybody think but it seems that it brings good money to him.
He is sponsored by various companies that pay him money in exchange for promotion. His early career started in 2011 when he decided to join Twitch. He wanted to share his love for games with friends and family and therefore created a streaming account.
His favorite game at the time was World of Warcraft, but he didn’t play it too long. Soon after he became crazy about DayZ, just when it got released. It was his all time favorite from them.
Saqib wasn’t really the most devoted streamer back then. Although his following was growing, he didn’t post too often and therefore he wasn’t that big. As time was going by, he started to be more flexible with his time.
In 2012 he decided to post often and his views doubled up! It was obviously a good investment. In 2016, he did an interview with PCGamesN and he was asked various questions about streaming and the way streaming devices work. Many people got to know him from that moment on.
2017 was a pretty big year for him. He started to play PlayerUnknown’s Battleground. He didn’t quite like it, though, he found it way too boring and he found many bugs in the game. People respect his opinion because he always says truly what he thinks.
PUBG Winter Charity called him to attend an event and top three teams that streamed there would be able to donate a huge amount of cash. His team won and he was the 5th most popular streamer in the world.
In 2018, he decided to take a short break. It was the beginning of the year and he wanted to take more time for himself. It only lasted a week, though, since he can’t live without his computer.
He also entered the world of business by releasing his own merchandise line of clothing: shirts, hoodies and caps are the main accessories in his exclusive lirik collection.
He admitted that streaming 6 days a week for 7 hours was much and that he needs a break sometimes, but he can’t let his viewers down. This caused a lot of controversy from those who work 9 to 5 jobs and work daily.
He loves ramen and he is famous for eating a bunch of it often. He loves cats as well and he says that he would like to have one more soon.
He already has two Scottish fold cats called Nayna and Nomu. He also has a cat called Luna.
He has an Instagram account with over 80k followers and it’s full of cats photos. There are just a few photos of him and the rest are mainly cats.
His brother also does streaming and Lirik encouraged him to do so himself. The two of them are very closely connected to each other.
He is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch and he does not show himself on the camera when he is online, which is pretty interesting.
Lirik works and lives in Wattertown in the state of Massachusetts in United States.
He has a girlfriend and they are five years together but he doesn’t like sharing stuff about his personal life. Her name isn’t currently out and he hasn’t got her photo on his Instagram account.
He shared this info in 2018 to his fans who didn’t even knew he had a girlfriend. He says that they almost broke up but then he realized that he is wrong and that he loves her too much so he focused on making their relationship better.
There are just a few photos of his girlfriend on the internet because he likes to keep his private life hidden from others.
He doesn’t travel a lot and likes to be at home.
