During a Shareholders Meeting livestream on January 31, 2023, popular streamer organization One True King (OTK) announced two major updates to its roster.
Emily "Emiru" was revealed as the new co-owner, and the signing of popular content creator Emily "ExtraEmily" was also announced. The update went viral on social media platforms such as Twitter and Reddit, with multiple discussion threads on the latter receiving hundreds of fan reactions.
"I'm an owner!" - Emiru talks about becoming the new co-owner of OTK
Emiru's announcement came at the 38-minute mark of the Shareholders Meeting via a video of the streamer costumed as a character from a fantasy world.
After hilariously "slaying" the co-founders of the organization, she stated that she "took the crown" for herself, becoming the "King" of the Kingdom:
"So after slaying the evil dragon, the Old King, and the two jesters, she took the crown for herself and became the King of the Kingdom."
The camera then panned towards Emiru, announcing the co-ownership. She stated:
"Yup! So, guys, I'm an owner! I am equity. I go to meetings and stuff! Whoo! Yeah, it's fricking awesome! Well, that's my cue, bye!"

ExtraEmily's announcement was made an hour later, with Chance "Sodapoppin" officially revealing the news by saying:
"All right. Okay, ExtraEmily has joined OTK. She is here. We are very happy for this announcement. Another terribly kept secret, I think."
The New York native introduced herself and said:
"Well, everyone, I'm ExtraEmily and I'm so excited to be the newest member of OTK! Just the fact that I'm even here is crazy! Like, I never would've thought and I really mean it when I say I feel very grateful that I can actually join an organization where I'm surrounded by friends! Right, guys?"
