A Canadian streamer is leaving his legacy in Fortnite in a big way.

Nick Eh 30, or Nicholas Anymoony, is joining the Fortnite Icon Series.

The Fortnite Icon Series features influential creators and celebrities. Some examples are MrBeast, Travis Scott, Ariana Grande and Ninja.

Nick Eh 30, who is from Halifax, Nova Scotia, is only the second Canadian to join the series, after The Weeknd.

So, what does Nick Eh 30 think about joining Fortnite Icon Series?

We wanted to hear from the streaming star himself.

KN contributor Ainara Alleyne met with Nick Eh 30 over a video call to ask him some questions.

This interview has been edited for length and clarity. 

Q: How does it feel to become a Fortnite icon?

I’d say it’s not an overexaggeration to say this is literally the biggest moment of my entire career. 

For almost seven years now, I’ve been dedicated to just making the best content that I can make. 

I think it’s just a testament to how enjoyable Fortnite is.

So, to be recognized in this way with an Icon outfit and everything that Epic did for me with this release … it’s what I like to say, eh-mazing.

Q: How does it feel to be repping Canada in the Fortnite scene?

It’s a dream come true. 

I feel like I’m never going to move away from Nova Scotia because my family’s here, my extended family, like, everyone that I consider my friends from high school, and from junior high to university. Everyone is just so kind. 

And to be able to represent a place like Nova Scotia, where I feel like there’s not many creators coming out from this spot, I think it’s amazing and I’m very grateful. 

I’ll always continue to work as hard as I possibly can.

And funny enough, there’s actually a lot of cool little Easter eggs. And we have some ehs sprinkled in on the pickaxe and different things like that. So, a lot of cool shout-outs to Canada.

Q: Talk to me about the look of your Icon Series avatar and the set.

The main thing that people are going to notice right away is the “Never back down, never give up” on the actual outfit itself. 

This is like my iconic catchphrase. And it’s the motto that I live by.

We also have a king edit style.

So basically, I do these little custom games with my community where everyone can join the same match. Sometimes we make fun stories, sometimes we do Simon Says. 

In one particular instance, there was a viral clip where I acted like a king, and now there’s a [Fortnite outfit] where I have a crown … and I look really, really tough.

Q: Since the back bling is supposed to give players motivational messages, what’s your motivational message for kids out there watching you?

I would say the classic saying is never back down, never give up. 

I think with hard work — if you really, really work hard at anything — you will see results. 

Always keep working and put your best foot forward. Try to be the best version of yourself that you can possibly be.

Q: More kids might be considering careers in YouTube or streaming. What advice would you give to them?

It’s very, very important to stand out and to try to do something that no one else is doing. 

It’s always good to have inspiration, and it’s always good to have those ideas from people that you enjoy. But work your hardest to bring your own twist to whatever it is that you do to give people a reason to want to watch you.

I also think it’s super important to edit your own videos and to learn.

As you edit your own videos, you’re going to realize, like, what did I do wrong, what did I do right, when I got eliminated or when I got that win? So you improve at the game. 

But then also you’re learning as you’re commentating: Did I sound confident there? Was that joke really funny? Like, can I watch back my content? 

I just think there’s so much that you can learn when you’re analyzing and editing your own videos. 

Q: You focus a lot on positivity. What do you have to say to people who log on just to put other people down, like the haters? And what advice would you give to kids for navigating hate in online gaming?

Focus on the positive no matter what. 

I try not to draw attention to any negativity. I think there’s a lot of positivity if you really, really look for it.

I think that it’s always good in your life to have balance.

I always give the analogy of a house being supported by four beams as opposed to a house that’s being supported by one beam. 

Let’s say that one beam is gaming, for example, and that’s the only thing that maybe you’re doing. Well, if that goes wrong, then you might feel a little down. 

But if you go back to the four beams, and you have gaming, and then you have your family as another support beam, and then you have fitness, and then you have a hobby.

If there was negativity or anything out there … it wouldn’t affect you because, like, hey, I still have my family, or I still have my friends. And then you have other things going for you.

Just know that you can work hard and prove the haters wrong. So focus on you and just be the best version of yourself you can be.

The new Nick Eh 30 Icon Series set will be available in Fortnite’s in-game shop on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
