If you have to look for a media character who has come out of the youtuber world and video games, that is Ibai Llanos. The Basque streamer has managed to become a reference in the new way of communicating on social networks, especially on Twitch
This 25-year-old Basque has managed to make a name for himself in the world of eSports throughout the Spanish-speaking world after becoming known as a commentator dthe videogame ‘League of Legends’ with his partner Ánder Cortés.
His greatest professional leap came when he became the official storyteller of the Professional Video Game League (LVP), a position he held from 2014 to 2020. At the beginning of the year, before the Coronavirus pandemic paralyzed the planet, he announced that he was joining the G2Sports club.
Video game narrator
The LVP is the Professional Video Game League, in it is dedicated to lift the spectators present in live matches from ‘League of Legends’ to ‘Fortnite’, among others. Although for many it may seem a minority, the sports they already have millions of followers. In addition, he has crossed the borders of the internet participating in programs such as ‘La Resistencia’.
With more than three million followers in Instagram, has a legion of fans that we do not know if they will follow him in his new projects. Precisely, his new professional stage is not at all clear, since did not want to announce what his new professional destination will be.
«It is something so gigantic that I have turned down offers to narrate soccer / basketball for doing what I am going to do. I hope you are as excited as me, we have been preparing it for many months and you will soon know», He said on his social networks. Although his future does not go through sports for now, at least as a storyteller.
In the program ‘This night does not come out’, which is broadcast through the Ubeat platform, Ibai acts as a presenter and receives famous people of all kinds. There it seems that he has taken out his most media side so far, that of an interviewer.
In the last months of 2020, he has starred in great moments thanks to his channel on Twitch, a YouTube competition platform, in which streamers broadcast all kinds of content. In it, he has been able to chat with sports greats while playing a game with them.
From footballers like Borja Iglesias, forward of Betis; Courteous, Real Madrid goalkeeper. Also joined him Kun Agüero, who became fond of the platform while recovering from a long injury, but there have been even bigger names who have wanted to have fun with Ibai Llanos.
Neymar, former FC Barcelona player and currently at PSG, contacted the Basque to appear on his channel. Singer C. Tangana joined the fashion, who wanted to have a drink with him while they analyzed the video clip of his song ‘You stopped loving me’.
But, when it seemed that he had already reached his ceiling, once again another character wanted to talk to him. It was Marc Gasol, who decided to grant him a exclusive interview announcing his signing for the Los Angeles Lakers.
If the year 2020 was intense for Llanos, 2021 has begun with a change of direction in the professional field. It is hoped that this year can, finally, narrate the basketball games of the Tokyo Olympics that had to be delayed by the pandemic.
But there are more changes, as after a successful year, Ibai and his teammates will leave the G2 club to “create their own brand.” We still don’t know what that means, but it seems that Ibai Llanos has been around for a while. Can we also see him in a television project?
As if that were not enough, the network has recovered one of his statements in which he speaks openly about what other youtubers and influencers earn. In his words, he comes out to defend characters such as the instagramer Paula Gonu, who has not hesitated to speak openly about what he earns thanks to his videos on YouTube.
He also assured that among his plans was not going to live in Andorra to significantly lower the amount you must pay to the Treasury, something that many other content creators, artists or athletes have done in the past. The Basque has fulfilled, remember that the statements were published long ago.
