Pro gamer and Twitch streamer Tarik Celik has signed with management firm Loaded.
Celik, who has 2 million followers on Twitch, first rose to fame as a competitive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player. In 2018, he led team Cloud9 to victory at the ELEAGUE Major in Boston, and was named MVP.
He is currently one of Twitch’s most-watched Valorant streamers and has collabed with content creators like Pokimane, Ludwig, Nadeshot, and Shroud, Loaded says. During a recent stream, he reached peak concurrent viewership of 117,000 people.

Celik intends to keep focusing on first-person shooter games and co-host esports streams “as he continues to build his brand and business,” Loaded says.

I’m excited to see the new heights that we can reach together.”
Bridget Davidson, Loaded’s president of talent, says Loaded has “always been impressed with Tarik’s gaming abilities, but were even more impressed to see him make the transition into becoming such an entertaining content creator.”
