Twitch streamer Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid has been entertaining fans with his latest Grand Theft Auto V roleplay streams – which has left many fans entertained with all of his highlights.

GTA V roleplay allows players to become even more immersed in the fictional city of Los Santos – as they take on the form of a normal NPC and take them on a journey of their own through the player’s ability to improv and role play.

LIRIK has joined the latest wave of streamers such as Summit1g by making a return to the GTA V roleplay servers and has had multiple entertaining streams since creating his character on March 10.

LIRIK/twitchLIRIK’s GTA V Character, Avon Barksdale after being arrested in-game.

The character he re-created was the same one he had entertained fans with previously, known as Avon Barksdale, who was based on the fictional character from the hit TV Show, The Wire. His current series titled as the Avon Barksdale Adventures has been entertaining fans with the hilarious situations LIRIK finds himself in on the roleplay servers.

Some of the most viewed clips during his GTA Roleplay series have been from hilarious phone calls during his journey as Avon Barksdale, including this particular one that some of his viewers had described as “movie-like”.

This comedic phone call took place with a kidnapper named “Jesus” after one of his friends was kidnapped in-game. After the kidnapper mistakenly called LIRIK’s character “Bob” the pair went back and forth with each other arguing on the phone before the kidnapper told someone to ‘stab Avon’s friend two times’ and the moment had LIRIK’s fans in tears.

Another one of his hilarious phone call clips happened when LIRIK’s character was casually walking the wrong way down the freeway and he called someone in the game ‘who had enough of being prank called,’ LIRIK apparently could not get his mic to work in-game at the time and later hilariously texted the contact: “Hold the fuck on man, I gotta change service plans.”

Another one of his most popular clips during his GTA roleplay series happened when he had tried to sell an old man a watch in-game, who was shocked by the price saying: “2000 dollars…I’ve been in 38 world wars and still don’t have any money to my name.” 

The old man then rapidly listed off some of the historical events he had claimed to have an influence in causing such as “Carrying the cross for Jesus.”

After its initial spike in popularity back in early 2018, many Twitch streamers had stopped making use of the roleplay servers in GTA V to broadcast other trending games such as Fortnite, however this recent wave of streamers returning could be good news for GTA fans.

It appears that LIRIK will keep streaming the GTA V roleplay series for fans in the future as his latest streams have received such high praise due to some of the highly-entertaining moments on the broadcast.


KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
