Arabnews24.ca:Monday 3 October 2022 05:35 AM: Minecraft YouTube star Dream has finally revealed his true identity to his millions of viewers.
His real face had never been seen by his followers despite making Minecraft videos over a number of years.
He was previously identified by a smiley face icon - but removed the disguise in a video released early on Monday.
The streamer said one reason he had taken the decision was because his friend - another Mincecraft Youtuber known as 'GeorgeNotFound' - was moving from Britain to join him in the US.
Dream - real name Clay - said: "Hi. Feels so awkward - talking to a camera for the first time.
"My name is Clay, otherwise known as Dream online. May have heard of me.
"Why now? Why are you finally revealing your face?
