Kai Cenat has set a new standard for marathon live streaming events with his record-breaking Mafiathon. In about a month’s time, Kai generated 46 million hours watched on Twitch. In February alone, he broke the record for most hours watched by a single creator in one month with 43 million hours watched.
What is a Mafiathon
The “Mafiathon” was Kai Cenat’s version of a marathon live stream or “subathon” where Kai broadcast on Twitch 24/7. The name came from combining “Mafia” which is the name Kai calls his supporters, with marathon. Kai live streamed his Mafiathon for 30 days straight, 24 hours a day, from February 1st to March 2nd.
The Mafiathon had many key moments throughout the 30 days. Special cameos came from popular musicians like NLE Choppa and G Herbo. Actress Skai Jackson, YouTuber KSI, and fellow twitch streamers xQc, yourrage, and other members of AMP also made appearances on Kai’s stream.
The Mafiathon was packed with engaging content like Super Bowl watch parties, magic tricks, and hypnotists. Even when Kai was sleeping there was media share for chat to engage with and modcasts (a mod cast is a live podcast that is hosted by a Twitch channel’s moderators, usually while the streamer is asleep or away from the computer) to provide a continuous experience for Kai’s viewers to enjoy each day.
