Having formerly put her passion for hosting and MC’ing on hold, this weekend Nambitha, commonly known as Lady Nam, had the opportunity to revive this aspect of her career after being selected as the official female host for the first ESL African Championships, hosted by Kwesé at the 15th annual rAge Expo. Having worked on a Vodacom campaign which spanned across Africa in countries such as Congo, Mozambique and Tanzania and now having worked with Kwesé TV, a distinctly African entertainment company, Nambitha is most certainly setting a firm footprint as a Pan African favourite.

Since starring alongside Lawrence Fishburne in the BET Series Madiba, appearing in international NetFlix series, Black Mirror; committing to the popular South African eTV drama, Broken Vows and opening her own media company, nambithaBM Media, Nambitha simply had to temporarily put her passion for hosting and MC’ing on hold.

With a firm hosting background in New York City and for the 2010 MTN FIFA World Cup, Nambitha was ecstatic to have the opportunity to undertake a hosting role and break into the diverse audience that eSports has to offer. This weekend Nambitha added her edgy flare and bubbly personality to the global tournament and adopted a whole new eSports vocabulary.

rAge is South Africa’s biggest annual video gaming, technology, geek culture, and eSports exhibition. Kwesé, which is an entertainment broadcasting platform throughout the African continent, hosted the first ESL African championships. The finals hosted the first ever match between a North African and a South African team, predicting a winner for the tournament seemed rather difficult at the beginning, however, the South African Team, Energy eSports, received the top spot as the ESL African CSGO Champions.
