Manila, Philippines October 10, 2017 — Tier One Entertainment is excited to announce the signing of superstar YouTube sensations, Lincoln Velasquez aka Cong and his brother, Junnie Boy.
Ever since founding the company early this year, we have made great strides in our mission to support gamers’ dreams and connect gaming to more mainstream audiences and brands. From building up WomboXcombo to aiding the formation and training of the TaskUs Titans, we feel that we have helped grow our corners of the Dota 2 community.
But we still wanted to explore more avenues to introduce wider audiences to the gamer lifestyle. That’s why we aimed to leverage the pawer of established stars from all corners of the digital industry.
It’s true that Cong and Junnie Boy are not known to be big gamers, but their online presence cannot be denied. The Cong TV YouTube channel has grown to be a giant, not just by pinoy online video standards, but by any measure. With a combined subscriber count of 750,000, with over 63 million views and counting, Cong and Junnie Boy are bona fide internet celebrities.
That same celebrity status, and their interest in gaming, is what will allow Tier One to reach their immense fan base and introduce them to the world of video games and esports.
But it’s about more than their influence. We don’t want to sign people to Tier One solely based on popularity. Cong and Junnie Boy have shown a sincere desire to add gaming as a big part of their repertoire. Their commitment is what ultimately led us to sign them on.
Under our guidance, the two of them will begin streaming on Twitch. Through their new Twitch channel, more gamers will be exposed to their signature brand of comedy. Likewise, their followers will hopefully find entertainment in their journey towards becoming gaming personalities on Twitch.
Our partnership with Cong TV doesn’t stop at teaching them the ins and outs of streaming on Twitch. We will also provide them with the equipment and facilities to do so, including their very own stream ready PCs and gaming studios.
If you’re a loyal fan of Cong’s, you should definitely look forward to what Tier One has in store for you in 2018. As soon as Cong and Junnie Boy join the Tier One family, you can bet that big things are on the way.
