Kai Cenat and iShowSpeed reportedly turned down $40 million offered by Kick to leave Twitch
Famous streamer, Adin Ross has alleged that Kick streaming platform offered both Kai Cenat and iShowSpeed a multi-million dollar deal to switch from Twitch.
During a recent YouTube stream (via Dexerto), Ross told fans he’d heard about Kai and Speed signing a deal with Rumble for an exclusive show, and that he’d actually known “about it for weeks.” Kai and iShowSpeed are good friends who recently collaborated on a song.
“I’m hurt, I wanted Kai and Speed on Kick, I’m gonna be honest,” said Ross. “We originally offered Kai and Speed 40 million–I think Kai was 40 million and Speed was 40 million. They said no, but I don’t know what Rumble offered, maybe it’s more than that.
“That just goes to show you bro, it’s NBA money. One thing I respect about Kai and Speed is they stick to their fuckin’ roots: Twitch and YouTube.
“Me, I’m a sellout,” Ross added with a smirk.
Since Kick is a new streaming platform, it is doing its best to get the best and most famous streamers onto the platform. Besides offering lucrative deals, Kick also offers streamers an extremely favorable 95/5 revenue split. With Kick getting so little from advertisers, rumors swirled that the platform was actually unprofitable. Kick founder Ed Craven has denied those rumors, stating that Kick was actually profitable within its first three months.
