Dafran confuses fans with plans to leave streaming to start a “farm”

Streamer Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca shocked Twitch by claiming he would be quitting streaming to grow fruits and vegetables despite Valorant launching worldwide.

On June 2, the former Overwatch pro posted a TwitLonger where he outlined his plans for the future and thanked his viewers for the “incredible years and unforgettable memories.”

According to Dafran, he wants to start pursuing a new career, which means means getting an education for it.

“I am going to be starting on an education, that has to do with growing fruits, vegetables and etc,” he wrote.

The streamer explained there were two reasons he’s doing this. The first is because we only have one life and people should do what makes them happy. The second is that he’s already spent one-third of his life in front of a computer, so it’s time for a change of scenery.

Dafran says he isn’t going to “stream regularly.”

“I am not going to stream regularly anymore,” he added. “This is not the end completely though, I will still stream for fun but rarely.”

The news caught many of his viewers and fellow streamers off-guard, with some jokingly replying “let’s grow dude” – a play on his popular catchphrase “let’s go dude.”

“Troll or real?” Francesca’s former Atlanta Reign teammate Dusttin ‘Dogman’ Bowerman asked.

Despite the strangeness of the announcement, Dafran seemed to have already hinted at this possible career change in a stream earlier in May.

While playing Overwatch, the streamer had claimed that he wanted to “own a strawberry farm.”

“Imagine owning a greenhouse strawberry farm that’s inside a huge commercial greenhouse? Imagine waking up to that every day,” he said. “Oh my God, that would be f**king amazing.”

It’s unclear just how serious Dafran was, as he does have a history of trolling his viewers. The move is especially strange given the release of Riot Games’ tactical FPS Valorant, a game Francesca was excited to play, especially after hearing how leaderboards would be coming.

We’ll just have to wait and see what the future holds and if he really does intend on becoming a farmer. Until then, take this all with a grain of salt.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
