What Is Emumita Bonita Real Name?
Emumita’s real moniker in the last few years has become a bit of an enigma among fans, with many speculating the Fortnite champion is keeping her name a secret to protect her identity.

Prior to asking the big question to his then-girlfriend, the 31-year-old online gamer went live on Twitch where he showed his viewers a rose-lined living room with candles and warm lighting, the place where he was going to propose.
Bonita at the moment apparently was upstairs. Nicholas, in the meantime, expressed his gratitude to his viewers for helping him decide the ring. After a while, Emumita finally comes downstairs with her boyfriend’s dog.

NICKMERCS also admits his wife watches a lot of his streams, but he says she really has no idea what’s going on when it comes to Warzone.
