The company has also launched an avenue for Esports fans to earn money as they enjoy watching their favourite players and teams by introducing an interesting variety of these games on its platform.
“Playing Esports such as Mortal Kombat which I was very good at, provided me with an escape from the many challenges that I faced while growing up in the slums of Kibera,” said Diangá who is currently also an Esports tutor and an ambassador for peace through gaming.
“With the support from a great gaming brand like SportPesa, I am looking to scale up projects that inspire the next generation of Esports athletes and content creators,” he added.
