Twitch affiliate Maya Higa has revealed that she was denied a partnership with the popular streaming site, despite having 2,500 subscribers on the platform.

Maya has quickly become a huge success on Twitch, amassing over 75,000 followers and 2,500 subscribers in the four months that she has been broadcasting on the site.

While she’s no doubt benefitted from her freindships with streamers such as Mizkif, her relationship with her peers – who often host her stream to help it grow in viewership – may have been the unexpected reason for her partnership application being declined.

In her June 25 Twitch stream, Maya revealed: “I got denied partnership again because my content is too reactionary, and Twitch doesn’t believe that it is appropriate for their partnership program at this time.”

Maya believes that her partnership request has not been accepted due to her content, specifically the fact that she spends large portions of her streams watching and reacting to clips and videos from other content creators and social media.

Some fans disagree, and state that they believe Twitch are referring to the nature of her substantial growth on the platform as “reactionary.” It’s possible that the site view her growth as non-organic, relying on others to boost her channel to reach this point, and want to see more longevity from her before they choose to offer her a spot on the partner program. Dexerto have reached out to Maya and Twitch for clarification.

Either way, Twitch’s decision to decline her application is surprising, considering the large number of subscribers she boasts, and regularly has thousands of people tuning in to watch her broadcasts.

Maya remains an affiliate, which means she is able to continue earning subscribers, but it’s likely that Twitch are taking a large cut of her revenue due to her status, while partners often receive a much more generous share.

She will be able to apply for partnership once again in the future, in the hope that Twitch will have changed their position on her channel and choose to include her in the partner program.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
