Popular Twitch streamer ‘GreekGodx’ shared an inspirational speech with his viewers about his battles with weight loss and mental health during his return to streaming.

GreekGodx, who took a short break from streaming after his ban for “hateful” gender comments, has finally made his return to Amazon’s livestreaming platform on October 4.

Many have been following the popular streamer over recent months as he documented his incredible weight loss journey and attempted to inspire some of his viewers with a motivational speech during his return.

Greekgodx/TwitchGreekGodx revealed some of his struggles during return to streaming on Twitch.

The Twitch star began by highlighting that everyone who embarks on a similar journey should find what works best for them, “everyone’s diet should be different and everyone’s method of losing weight should be different, you need to figure it out yourself.”

“That is the mental battle that you need to go through,” GreekGod explained, before opening up to his supporters, “It’s scary I get it, you don’t want to think of it, you don’t want to lay at night alone with your own thoughts.”

“You need to have a mental battle within yourself, it’s the hardest thing ever to do and I struggle to this day, I have really bad anxiety but it’s like a war you need to go in full f*king blazing boys…” he admitted, before getting cut off by cars honking in the distance.

However, GreekGodx found the comedic value in the moment and began joking that his rallying moment was ruined, “Man, can you let me? I’m doing an inspirational speech bruv.”

The streamer did manage to get the chance to finish his speech in the end and followed up by reflecting on everything he had learned since committing to losing weight, sharing what he could with his fans.

GreekGodx updates his followers often on his progress with his weight loss journey and has hit some incredible milestones along the way.

The popular streamer was absent from Twitch for a while following his temporary suspension, although it is likely that he will be broadcasting more often after returning on October 4.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
