Craig ‘Nepenthez’ Douglas, one of the biggest streamers on Mixer and a household name within the FIFA community, has become the first big streamer to leave Microsoft’s platform and return to Twitch.

In August 2019, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins shook the streaming world by leaving Twitch and switching over to Mixer, but now the reverse is happening as Nep has revealed that he will no longer be streaming on the platform.

Douglas first started broadcasting on Mixer in March 2019, a few months before the likes of Ninja and Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek switched over, but has now revealed why his time with them has come to an end.

Ninja’s move to Mixer made huge waves in the gaming and esports industry as a whole.

In a statement made on April 30, Nepenthez shared that his time with the platform had expired that day after “an amazing 13 months.”

He went on: “I’m sad we couldn’t reach an agreement to extend my term there. I’m super grateful for the support you guys gave me over there, and can’t wait to get right into the next chapter on Twitch for the foreseeable future.”

He doesn’t go into specifics as to why the two parties couldn’t reach an agreement, but it seems as though he isn’t too happy to be leaving Mixer.

Across other platforms and social media, Nepenthez has almost 1 million followers on Twitter and 2.2m on YouTube, so he clearly has the capacity to reel in viewers – so it’ll have to be seen whether he sees more success on Twitch.

It’s unlikely we see the likes of Ninja and shroud moving away from Mixer in the near future, especially considering they probably received some pretty hefty contracts to make the switch, and Nep seemed to be happy there based on his sadness that they couldn’t come to an arrangement to elongate his stay.

Douglas’ first Twitch stream will be today, May 1, at around 2pm BST, so it will be interesting to see what he says about the move, or if he speaks on it at all.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
