Fortnite Battle Royale is now a pop culture phenomenon, and its popularity continues to grow. In June 2018 the creator’s even reported that the number of registered players in the game reached 125 million. Teenagers around the world are now all facing the same problem, their parents think they’re spending too much time on the computer. They aren’t alone, famous celebrities are even experiencing the same issue.
Professional footballers have a lot of free time when they’re not training or preparing for upcoming matches. Despite their huge salaries even the most famous footballers don’t mind spending a night or two playing Fortnite. Fans of the legendary Swedish striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic were shocked when he posted on Twitter, telling his followers to subscribe to his gaming channel. Ibrahimovic currently plays as a forward in the MLS with LA Galaxy after successful spells in Europe with Ajax, Inter Milan, PSG and Manchester United. While we don’t know how often he plays in his spare time but that day on the stream he spent a few hours playing, joking and answering questions on the chat. During the stream somebody asked – why don’t Fortnite developers make a Zlatan character for the game? He replied, “They can’t afford me”.
Some celebrities are so popular that when they appear in a stream records get broken. This happened in March of this year when Drake posted on Twitter stating that he’s playing Fortnite with Ninja.

It’s hard to believe, but 680,000 people watched Ninja and Drake, play together. We have to admit Drake played very enthusiastically without getting distracted by the chat and unnecessary conversations, as it turned out he’d been fond of playing for several months before the stream. He says that he spends a lot of time at the studio, 15 to 20 hours a day, so he has time to play.
