Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf walked away from the Fortnite World Cup with over $3 million dollars, but Daequan from Team SoloMid claims he played a huge part in the 16-year-old’s success with a hilarious story.

All eyes were on the Pennsylvania native who was able to beat out the top 99 Fortnite professionals to earn the Fortnite World Cup in solos.

Not only was he able to lift the golden Battle Bus trophy, but he walked away with a life-changing $3 million.

Bugha had a dominating performance in the solo portion of the World Cup, but Team SoloMid’s Daequan revealed that he was actually the secret behind the 16-year-old’s victory royale with a long, elaborate fictional story.

How did Daequan help Bugha win the World Cup?

Dae was streaming on August 26 playing Fortnite’s Arena mode when he informed his chat on a secret partnership.

“Look. The whole reason I didn’t play the [Fortnite] World Cup was because his mom hit me up.” He continued his story with, “She was like, ‘Hey, can you not play in the [Fortnite] World Cup so my son, little Bugha, can win?'”

Daequan rolled on with his trolly story with, “I was like, ‘You’re going to have to just slide me a couple of dollars, but, I got you.'”

Daequan finished his hilarious story with, “Next thing you know, 16-year-old Bugha wins the [Fortnite] World Cup.”

It’s obvious that the Team SoloMid creator was joking, but it’s fun to play along.

We wonder if Bugha will fire back with a troll response, or if he will roll with the playful punches.

While competitive Fortnite is stepping away from the usual solo and duo play, Season X will focus on Trios.

It’s possible that Trios will allow new names to explode in the Fortnite community, especially since Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney flopped at the World Cup.
