Ann Mateo is a 25-year-old streamer from the Philippines. She joined the platform in April 2016 and currently has almost 89 thousand followers. Her channel bio says that she streams every day and while that’s true, it’s not necessarily on Twitch. In fact, her last video on Twitch was in November 2018; her streaming videos are now mostly on Facebook. She’s an official partner and video game streamer at Facebook Gaming.
She also does occasional cosplay!
Her community outside Twitch is much bigger than you would expect based on her following on Twitch. Here are her statistics:
85.9 thousand followers on Twitter
906 thousand followers on Instagram
2.4 million likes on Facebook
2.5 million follows on Facebook

Ann Mateo started in the entertainment industry as a model. She has actually had the privilege (for lack of a more appropriate word) of gracing the cover of FHM Philippines. Back in 2016, she participated in the Filipino reality TV show called “Pantaxa”, which features six of the hottest upcoming talents in the Filipino showbiz industry.
Apart from this stint in reality TV, she has also had experience in music videos and movies. In 2014, before Pantaxa, she was featured in a music video for “Kakaibabe” (wordplay on “unique” and “babe”), sung by a Filipina YouTube sensation named Donnalyn Bartolome.
Donnalyn and Ann worked together once again in 2017. Donnalyn wrote and starred in a movie called “Happy Break Up” where Ann had a role, too.
When it comes to her personal life, she’s currently dating Christopher John Ongkiko, better known by his stage name, “Shehyee”. Shehyee is a Filipino rapper, musician, and actor who rose to prominence thanks to FlipTop, the premier rap battle league in the country. He’s had a few movie roles as well.
From what we can figure out, they’ve been dating since at least 2012. In 2017, the couple was part of not one, but two headline-worthy snippets of news. In February, Shehyee and fellow rapper Sinio were in a rap battle where the latter mentioned and offensively dissed Ann multiple times. One could argue that that’s a very normal part of rap battles, but Ann’s mom may not have gotten that memo. In fact, Sinio had to make a very public apology and explanation on Facebook after Ann’s mom threatened to sue him. Yikes.
After all that blew over, Ann and Shehyee were part of a controversy yet again in December. Shehyee publicly shared a Facebook video of Ann pretty pissed drunk and rolling around on the floor. The video now has over 3 million views, with a lot of fans criticizing Ann for her behavior and Shehyee for what they thought was purposely humiliating his girlfriend. However, they managed to weather that storm and Ann straight up defended her boyfriend’s actions, saying that kind of fun is exactly what their relationship is about and negativity wasn’t welcome.
Now that we know a little about Ann Mateo, let’s go back to her gaming. She stated on her Facebook that she streams a variety of games, but her main focus is PUBG and other FPS/Survival games. Most of her streams are primarily in her native language of Filipino, but you can still check out her streams just to see her skills!
