When Gabriel Ramokotjo, Mpho Tladi, and Smilo Katlegob Gosa founded Ekasi Esports their true colours shone through. Right from the beginning, the three were not afraid of taking chances.
Yet their ambition, competitiveness, and passion does not end there. The three founders of Ekasi Esportsare determined to make SOWETO the centre of South African gaming.
Through great dedication the three founders, aided by Tsholofelo Makhobozi, have put hours of work into creating SOWETO’s first female CounterStrike: GO team.
The ever affable Tsholofelo Makhobozi, upon breaking the news of her team stated, “This is when the work begins”.
For Tsholofelo Makhobozi, the team is not there to ‘just take part’, as Tsholofelo believes that the team has the spirit and character of champions.
Tsholofelo is determined to develop the team to a standard that they can represent South Africa.
However, Tsholofelo realises that there is still a way to go, but as Tsholofelo says, “It may be hard, but we’ll get there!”.
