The partnership with Shagufta comes in after she garnered over 200,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel with an additionally substantial presence of 80,000 on Facebook-owned Instagram.

Unlike most of the PUBG Mobile influencers and streamers, Xyaa is not a new to the gaming community in Asia. Mapping her way to hundreds and thousands of subscribers and bagging Logitech as her sponsor took her good years.

Although she started streaming in 2018, her gaming career goes way back. She has been actively participating in competitive gaming and community events, from travelling hundreds of miles to spending hours in creating video content for her fans, Shagufta has put in a lot of hours and years.

Prior to full-time gaming and streaming, Shagufta was working as a Software Developer at Capgemini in Pune, Maharashtra. In an interview to T2Online, Xyaa revealed that her parents are “very supportive” of the career choices she’s made by switching to full-time streaming. Mainstream media in India also covered her story several times because gaming in India is somehow still considered a taboo.

In the past mainstream giants like Ubisoft Intel, NVIDIA, ZionRAM, Goutfits & Entity Gaming have associated with Shagufta to promote their brands. She was featured in one of Lenovo’s Legion campaign which was widely promoted in Asian subcontinent.The addition of Logitech exemplifies quality of content she possess and her notable experience in the gaming spectrum.
