On April 17, 2023, Cenat faced a temporary suspension on Twitch for undisclosed reasons.

However, he eventually returned, clarifying that it was initially mistakenly labeled as a permanent ban.

In May 2023, Cenat made an announcement about a livestreamed show called the Kai ‘N Speed Show, which he would be hosting exclusively on Rumble alongside IShowSpeed.

Moving forward to September 2023, Cenat was featured in Offset’s music video for the single “Fan” alongside Fanum. The following month, he made his directorial debut in the music video of American rapper a Boogie wit da Hoodie.

A significant event occurred on December 14, 2023, when Nicki Minaj appeared on Cenat’s stream, breaking his previous peak viewership record by 40,000 with 348,593 concurrent viewers.

Then, on February 8, 2024, during a livestream, Cenat announced his official partnership with Nike, proudly declaring, “I would like to announce that we are officially a part of the Nike family.” This made him the first streamer to be signed by the renowned company.

Shifting gears to the 2023 Union Square riot, on August 4, 2023, Cenat organized a giveaway of PlayStation 5 consoles and gift cards in Union Square, Manhattan, alongside Twitch streamer Fanum.

The event attracted thousands of his followers, but unfortunately, it quickly escalated into a riot.
