Independent VTubers Shoto and Bao are officially joining the talent roster of United Talent Agency (UTA), a global talent agency based in Beverly Hills, California.
According to a report from Dot Esports, Shxtou and Bao join other popular streamers such as Sykkuno, Kkatamina, Buddha, and Stranger Things actress Grace Van Dien. Unlike existing streamer organizations or agencies like 100Thieves and OfflineTV, UTA operates as a way to aid signed talents to find sponsorships and other promotional opportunities.
While Shoto hasn’t announced his signing with UTA, Bao had already posted about it on Twitter last June, stating that she is now represented by UTA.
Shoto debuted on October 2, 2021, and is part of an independent VTuber group called Hanamori. Meanwhile, Bao, who previously produced music under the name Hikaru Station, debuted on October 30, 2020, where she released her single “52-Hearts.”
