Who is Ludwig Ahgren dating?

He has been in a relationship with the Twitch streamer @QTCinderella since 2020. The couple currently lives together. 

He has broken tons of Twitch records

From March 22, 2021 to May 12, 2021, he had the most-subscribed channel on Twitch and on April 13, 2021 he became the most-subscribed Twitch streamer of all time with over 283,000 subscribers. Ahgren did so by hosting a “subathon” event to boost his followers by performing fun antics. He beat out Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who long held the previous record. 

He left Twitch for YouTube Gaming

After all of Ahgren’s success on Twitch, he shocked fans when he announced he had signed an exclusive deal with YouTube Gaming on Nov. 29, 2021. 

In the video, Ahgren and his friend Anthony “Slime” Bruno drove a purple car. After they got out of it the vehicle burst into flames. Then Ahgren got in a red car, saying it was “pretty much the same one,” and drove away. The act symbolized the transition since Twitch’s logo is purple and YouTube Gaming’s is red. 

The video has amassed over 3.4 million views and over 166,000 likes. The very next day Ahgren started streaming exclusively on YouTube. He currently has 2.53 million YouTube subscribers.
