In addition to being streamed live on Twitch, the massive event took place in front of an audience. Fans were also treated to a series of musical performances.
With this gala, ibai dethroned his Spanish colleague TheGrefg, who had interested 2.5 million people in 2021 by revealing on Fortnite a new cosmetic product inspired by himself and the manga series dragonball Z.

Ibai rose to prominence on Twitch as an esports commentator. He also interviewed great soccer players like Gerard Piqué, Andrés Iniesta and Ronaldinho.
