VS Gaming Festival – something for all gamers


The VS Gaming Festival was held at the weekend and it was an action-packed event, a true treasure for the die-hard gamer.

Held at Montecasino, the two-day festival had gamers locked in, battling for the chance to become this year’s FIFA champion and the chance to walk away with some awesome prizes.

The event saw performances from some of Mzansi’s hottest acts, including SAMA24 nominees Rouge, Shekhinah, Locknville, Youngsta CPT.  Sketchy Bongo also had a set on the decks to entertain all who attended.

Moozlie joined Rouge on stage for a fiery performance. Rouge is pretty much about the “gaming life and really enjoys playing games” and admits she loves playing “Fifa” and “Creed”.

Youngsta CPT shared that when he was young and asked his mother for a Playstation when it was first released, she told him to “go play outside”. So now, he plays with lyrics instead of controls.

Riky Rick and Cassper Nyovest battled it out in a FIFA soccer game.

Ahead of the match, SA Breaking News spoke to Cassper Nyovest – who is a huge FIFA fanatic -and he shared how important it was to him to beat Riky this year, as last year (2017) he lost to his dear friend.

Cassper ‘s determination saw him emerge victorious, with a 3-0 win over  Riky – ‘a great come back’, he said.

The duo then went on to entertain fans with amazing performances, that had the crowd singing along and dancing to their best hits.
