Unikrn & Unicorns of Love pick TyBuu as official streamer!

The first $50,000 Unikrn streaming competition attracted thousands of entrants over six months, but it is finally coming to a close with the first official stream set for Friday, February 14.

Unikrn and Unicorns of Love set out to find the most dedicated, capable, diverse and entertaining streamer yet undiscovered in the gaming space, dedicating $50,000 over six months plus resources and guidance to make one dream reality.

Tyrelle “TyBuu” Appleton, a New Hampshire resident native to Toronto, Canada, brings a unique background, edging out hundreds of other qualified entrants with his style and unique entertainment factor. He was a dedicated basketball player with a degree in sports management and a masters degree in business administration.

The decision to give everything up to pursue gaming professionally does not come easy to a man with as many talents as TyBuu.

„This is an opportunity that I only could have dreamed of growing up,” he told Unikrn, “I have sacrificed so much on this journey, including a professional basketball career because I saw the value and potential in growing with the esports industry.”

With support from Unikrn and Unicorns of love, TyBuu is working to change his Twitch 3500 followers into 35,000 followers… or more. Following him on all social media @TyBuuTV and join his journey!

Growing up I had to overcome many hurdles, the odds were against me, but I continued to chase this dream and pray everyday. First, I want to thank God. I also want to thank my family, my fans, Unikrn and Unicorns of Love, and everyone else that helped me get to this point. I look forward to the future and hope to have a positive impact on more people. I’m proud to be more than a gamer!
