Bugha Bio

It wasn’t until the end of 2018 that Bugha started creating Fortnite videos and uploading them to his Youtube. And it wasn’t until several months later that the traction really picked up and he started getting noticed. Finally, on March 25th, 2019, he was hand-picked by the Sentinels to represent their gaming team. Enter the newly minted SEN Bugha or Bugha Sentinels.

It was a smart move. Bugha went from relative obscurity to serious competitor when he landed a spot in the World Cup during the first week of trials. A couple months later, he flew out to New York with the rest of the lineup. But he could never anticipate what happened next.

Not only did Bugha win the Fortnite World Cup, he absolutely dominated. By the end of the tournament, he sat at #1 with a whopping 59 points. That’s 26 more than the next highest player.

Since the tournament, Bugha has been enjoying his newfound celebrity by streaming to millions of new followers. Moreover, he’s begun playing with the likes of Ninja, Tfue, and other top Fortnite celebs for maximum exposure.

The sky is truly the limit for Bugha. At just 16 years old, he’s at the beginning of what’s sure to be a long and successful eSports career.
