During her May 1 stream, Valkyrae explained that during Sykkuno’s stream they had a nostalgic moment when the friend group joined a Minecraft server together.
“I was sobbing the whole time. That’s how Sykkuno and I met. We met on the OfflineTV Minecraft server three years ago,” she explained. “He was a wee lad. He was uWukuno. He was so timid, shy, and had no webcam. He only had about 200 viewers.”

She went on to describe their initial meeting inside of the OTV server. She said: “He had shot me instead of a skeleton and I just couldn’t get over his voice. I thought his voice was incredible and our friendship just blossomed from there.”
Fans of Sykkuno flooded Twitter on May 1 with positive messages and support for their favorite creator.
According to the stat tracking website Twitchtracker, the creator’s seven-hour stream included a significant boost in viewers with over 30,000 tuning into the broadcast.
