Twitch Streamer and YouTuber Kika Has Died at Age 21

Twitch streamer and YouTuber Kristina "Kika" Dukic has died at age 21. Known as "K1KA" and "Kika" on Twitch and YouTube, Dukic was a Serbian gamer who was most recently known for her Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and League of Legends content. She started her YouTube channel in 2015 and mainly uploaded Minecraft and Grand Theft Auto 5 videos at first. She had over 705,000 subscribers on YouTube and 44.5 thousand Twitch followers at the time of her passing.

Kika's death was confirmed on her Instagram story, where a message was released that stated that she passed away on December 8, 2021. "This will be a hard time for us all and all we can do is keep her memory alive. We love you Kika and miss you more than words can explain." Kika's cause of death was not stated in the Instagram post, but local media reports confirmed that she committed suicide, with police finding her "lifeless body" and no sign of violence at 11:40pm. The Instagram post included a message saying, "If you are having suicidal thoughts or suffering from depression please speak to someone you are not alone."

As previously mentioned, Kika started her YouTube channel in 2015, mainly uploading Minecraft videos before moving on to posting Grand Theft Auto 5 content. Her most popular YouTube videos were unrelated to gaming, however, with a music video she made amassing 7.8 million views, while a video of her mom lighting her hair on fire reached 3.5 million views. Kika later became known for her CSGO skills, going semi-pro and standing out as one of the better CSGO players in Serbia. Kika's last YouTube video was related to the Squid Games-inspired Crab Game and had over 326,000 views.

Kika eventually started streaming on Twitch alongside making YouTube videos, developing a dedicated following on that platform as well. Kika went on a long Twitch hiatus at the end of 2020, but recently returned to the platform. Kika's most recent Twitch streams mainly focused on Riot Games' popular MOBA League of Legends, which she was trying to learn as potentially her new competitive game to play along with CSGO.

Kika's death has come as a shock to her fans and those in the Serbian gaming scene, with numerous social media posts expressing condolences to her family and paying tribute to the YouTuber/Twitch streamer.
