Popular Twitch streamer Dimitri ‘GreekGodx’ Antonatos was left shocked after hearing BTS’ new ‘UGH!’ song, which seemingly featured a sample from his ‘GGX Gang’ song.

Korean pop group, BTS, are currently the biggest boy band in the world. With a combined social media following in excess of 40 million on Twitter and Instagram, it’s fair to say that they have taken the global pop scene by storm in recent years.

Despite being one of the most biggest streamers on the platform, GreekGod’s Twitch following of over 1 million is humbled by the Bangtan Boys’ gigantic following.

During his February 21 Twitch broadcast, Antonatos stumbled upon BTS’ new track called ‘UGH!’ from their brand-new album, ‘Map of the Soul: 7’ after being directed to it by a post on the GreekGodx subreddit.

After listening to the opening few seconds, the track seemingly sampled a part of what the 26-year-old presumed to be his voice from the fan-made ‘GGX Gang’ song.

“Are you f**king kidding?” Greek exclaimed. “I don’t know if that’s my voice,” he acknowledged while listening to the GGX Gang track.

However, after listening to the BTS track a couple more times, Antonatos appeared to be convinced that the voice was indeed his. “Mate! You f**king yoinked my voice, mate!” the Twitch streamer yelled while typing frantically in the YouTube comments.

*F**k off! Give me my f**king cut, dude. I said ‘let’s go’ for a second, I made your song,” GreekGod stated sarcastically, before jesting that both himself and his community “made BTS” in light of it sounding like he was on their new track.

After being prompted to sue the Korean pop band, Antonatos admitted that “I couldn’t even sue that for that… There’s no way, dude. Who f**king cares, to sue? Let them have it.”

While GreekGod appeared convinced that he’d been sampled in the Bangtan Boys’ latest release, it transpired that the snippet was from Decap’s ‘Drums That Knock: Vol. 3’ EP — which features a plethora of accessible samples.

It just so happens that both samples were used in UGH! and GGX Gang. So much to Greek’s dismay, his claim to Korean fame has been temporarily put on hold.

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.
