This list comes with a missed feeling, as some of the channels listed were just making it to the list for the first time while the others are a regular channels.

Hence, we are not surprised to see them make the list of the top 10 channels below they are listed thus:


1. Riot Games Inc

Based in West Los Angeles, California, the company cubed in so many fans who have spent approximately 122 million hours steaming their favorite top products like league of legends, league of legends: Wild Rift, league of Runeterra, and Mechs vs Minions.

5. Summit1g

This is another top-performing Twitch channel owned by an individual that made it on top of the list. It is owned by Jaryd Lazar, an American born April 23, 1987, Jaryd was also a retired CS:GO who was once part of the Team Mythic and A51.

As of January 2018, Summit1G was said to have recorded over 19,500 followers, and over 4 million twitch views.

Though African twitch streamers didn't make it on the list, we are still optimistic that in years to come Nigerians and South Africans will definitely make it.

This is so because judging from the way and direction the country’s gaming industry revenue is going, it is very possible  Who are hopeful looking at names like GeeMax, Malachaai, and Pacman 10154.

But unfortunately, no Nigerian streamer is known to be named the next rated top twitch streamer but with the current efforts being made by Esports Nigeria the hope of raising a top Twitch streamer looks achievable.
