Inclusion for Africa has been a debate in esports, with the region being excluded in different global esports tournaments.
Reasons for exclusion in these so called global or world esports tournaments and activities have not been made clear, despite the region being rich in various esports communities.
Since the inception of the Global Esports Federation, one of their major goals have been diversity and inclusion.
GEF gave Africa its first platform with the World Connected series last December, where Sub-Sahara Africa exceeded expectations from planning all the way to execution.
GEF’s commitment to bringing Africa into the fold, has seen the appointment of CEO of Lagos Esports Forum as a member of 2 commissions.
The most recent inclusion by GEF is the appointment of Kenya and Africa’s female pro-gamer, Queen Arrow into the Athletes, Players, Community Commission.
The Athletes, Players, Community Commission, allows pro-gamers have a voice on different issues affecting gamers in the esports ecosystem.
GEF took to their twitter to announce the introduction of Queen Arrow into the commission.
Queen Arrow who is a lawyer by day and a Pro -Tekken player by night, has received recognition both internationally and locally.
She also just joined UYU and is expected to be the voice for gamers in Africa in the commission with the GEF.
