Video gaming in Nigeria has taken a new turn, in the last decade, compared to the early 90’s where the majority of Nigerian parents actually chastised their wards from anything gaming considering it a total waste of time. Today, in Nigeria, gaming has opened new doors of opportunity that majority of Nigerians are only recently aware of.
At the Benin tournament, one of the popular gamers commented, ‘Fearless Gaming Tournament is a good thing that has happened in Nigeria especially for gamers. Video gaming is an unexplored industry that gives room for computer programmers, storytellers and digital artists to find their purpose in creating a Nigerian oriented product, gaming should be encouraged because developed countries have made billions out of this industry’.
Rite Foods Limited understands the potential and growth of gaming in Nigeria and has therefore committed itself to supporting this growing entertaining sector.
The Fearless Gaming Tournament which kicked off in July with the Ibadan Qualifiers has gradually built its momentum from one city to another, with the Benin Qualifiers hosting over 250 gamers at the Pent House Event center, opposite University of Benin. The winner of the FIFA tournament in Benin journeyed from Calabar to contest with the big players of Benin to emerge victorious in Benin.
