Daequan has a long history with Fortnite

Back in the day, Daequan was one of the most popular Fortnite creators in the world. He was not only an exceptional player but a very entertaining streamer too.

He also made the world record of the maximum kills in a single Fortnite game by eliminating 39 other players. Even though the record was soon broken, Daequan solidified his place as one of the best players ever.

Earlier this year, the streamer and his girlfriend faced severe health issues that compelled him to take a break from streaming. It has been 8 months since he last uploaded on his YouTube or Twitch account. However, his recent Thanksgiving tweet has been a ray of hope for his enormous fan base.

During Daequan’s long break from streaming, Fortnite itself has gone through certain peaks and valleys. Following Chapter 2, the biggest content creators quit playing the game and they’re finally returning now.
