Video gaming in Nigeria has taken a new turn, in the last decade, compared to the early 90’s where the majority of Nigerian parents actually chastised their wards from anything gaming considering it a total waste of time. Today, in Nigeria, gaming has opened new doors of opportunity that majority of Nigerians are only recently aware of.
At the Benin tournament, one of the popular gamers commented, ‘Fearless Gaming Tournament is a good thing that has happened in Nigeria especially for gamers. Video gaming is an unexplored industry that gives room for computer programmers, storytellers and digital artists to find their purpose in creating a Nigerian oriented product, gaming should be encouraged because developed countries have made billions out of this industry’.
Rite Foods Limited understands the potential and growth of gaming in Nigeria and has therefore committed itself to supporting this growing entertaining sector. The Fearless Gaming Tournament which kicked off in July with the Ibadan Qualifiers has gradually built its momentum from one city to another, with the Benin Qualifiers hosting over 250 gamers at the Pent House Event center, opposite University of Benin.

Culture, they say, is the way of life and what differentiates one culture from another varies in language, dressing, belief, attitude, and many other factors. The Yoruba culture is one of the largest African cultures still actively in existence. The Yoruba people are not just a single group but rather diverse people bound together by common language, history, and culture. Yoruba mythology holds that all Yoruba people descended from Odua or Oduduwa. Kingship is an integral part of this culture because kings at the time are the sole ruler of their communities before the dusk of colonization.
Ojude Oba festival is one of the avenues where Yoruba culture is colourfully and elaborately showcased. With a large gathering at the Awujale’s palace arena, regberegbes (families) come in hundreds, dressed in similar elaborate traditional attires to celebrate the fact that they are alive to see another Ojude oba festival and in turn pay their homage and allegiance to their Awujale (King). The event involves colourful horse riding display and gun shooting to present each regberegbes while special dignitaries from all over the country come to witness the elaborate display of Yoruba culture and other amazing entertainment.
At Rite Foods Limited, we take our heritage seriously and appreciate every good thing that comes from the depth of our culture. Our truly Nigerian disposition does not allow us to take back seat when it comes to showcasing our World Class & made in Nigeria products at events of this nature. Hence, Rite Foods is the official beverage sponsors of the event; going all out to grace the occasion and present in all our glorious colours with an energetic cultural performance for the Awujale as our show of allegiance to his reign. With more than 5,000 person turnout at this year’s event, the need for refreshments cannot be underestimated and of course, we at Rite Foods Limited was readily available to provide premium refreshment to everyone.
