Food blogger fatally stabbed by rival influencer in Nepal

A high-profile Chinese street food blogger has been stabbed to death in a bizarre attack allegedly carried out by a rival influencer while live-streaming from Nepal.

Chinese national Feng Zhengyung, 37, was arrested on December 4 on suspicion of killing 29-year-old Gan Soujiong and injuring 32-year-old Li Chuzan.

The violent knife attack took place at the crowded Indra Chowk market in the capital Kathmandu on Sunday afternoon, Asia Wire reported.

The shocking video shows Gan, known online as “Fatty Goes To Africa,” walking live with two friends and laughing when the scene is suddenly interrupted by a series of agonizing, high-pitched screams, followed by wild shaking in front of the screen turns black.

A later shot shows a visibly dazed Gan sitting in the middle of the street, covered in blood, while another person – presumably Feng – curses at him in Chinese.

Feng, who goes by the nickname “Ayun” on the internet, was arrested by local police in connection with the stabbings.

According to preliminary reports, Feng, who lived in Nepal, harbored a grudge against Gan stemming from several unspecified disputes and unresolved debts.

Gan used his social media platforms to introduce foreign countries’ food and culture to his nearly 5 million followers in China.
