Alaan «Bamboe» Faraj’s unfortunate passing was sudden, revealed through a Discord message sent to his close friends.
Wehsing «SingSing» Yuen, Magomed «TheS1tuation» and several others had been doing a live stream at the time the news hit, shellshocking the lot. They ended their stream abruptly after receiving the information.
Faraj used to compete in Dota 2, playing for LowLandLions, Mousesports, Evil Geniuses and Team Zephyr, among many others. He was 29 years old at the time of his passing and was on an indefinite break from streaming.
Yo update on situation im probably not gonna full time stream for some time, I have burned myself out in Dota for a while now and I dont see myself enjoying it anytime soon, (there might be some random streams just for fun here and there). Also the IRL stream wil still happen when the lockdown ends no worries.
Details of Faraj’s passing have not been made public. As news spread, viewers from all across the world began to send in their condolences to the streamer, letting everyone know how much Faraj impacted their lives.
RIP Sexy Bamboe :(One of the chillest Dota streamers ever. His streams with SingSing back in the day was part of why I fell in love with the game. This sucks so hard
RIP Bamboe. Big loss for the Dota2 community
wtf i am really sad about bamboe?? i have such fond memories of watching gorgc, singsing and bamboe playing dota and other games with my boyfriend 🥺 them playing trine was my highlight of 2019 rest in peace
im trying to piece smth together but its not coming out, so. RIP BAMBOE ♥️ 😭
Bamboe will always be the best kapitan in my heart.
Singsing revealed that he had called him as early as a week ago and the two had a fairly normal conversation. He also mentioned that Faraj was on track to getting healthy and was excited about investing in crypto, which is what made the news of his passing more shocking to him.
Faraj had been on a long break from content creation, burnt out from years upon years of playing Dota. The streamer occasionally updated his fans during his break and was allegedly in talks to make a comeback stream.
