Gaming Origins

Sway’s elder brother sparked his interest in the realm of video games as Sway grew up watching him play. Once his parents got him a customizable PC, there was no holding him back.

When he made this change to his content, the number of his followers started increasing at a rapid pace. Subsequently, he featured his first-ever video with more than a million views, FaZe Sway vs. Ghost Adyan. It has more than 1.5 million views presently!

Due to an uncanny increase in his popularity, he was noticed by the FaZe clan and soon became their youngest member in 2019. Nevertheless, it changed when a 13-year-old professional gamer, H1ghsky1, joined FaZe half a month later.
