On April 8, Nairo made his return to streaming after a hiatus. Nairo is however still banned on Twitch, and although his appeal with the platform is still processing, he decided to begin his first stream back on YouTube instead.

The Super Smash Bros. player had quite the support for his first stream back, with the live stream now sitting at over 450,000 views. He also managed to smash some of his previous Twitch records, with his YouTube stream peaking at around 23,000 concurrent viewers.

His YouTube channel also currently sits at almost 240,000 subscribers.
