E-Game: Manzo wins LG tourney in Lagos

Comeback king Farouk Manzo on Saturday in Lagos emerged winner in the final of the highly competitive LG OLED TV Gaming Challenge for 2021.

Fans favourite Manzo, 19, saw off his opponent in the final 3-2 to claim the star prize of N1.5m, an OLED 65C9 TV and a giant trophy.

The second and third-place winners also got N500,000 and N300,000 respectively.

The event was a major celebration in Lagos as the top eight finalists of the gaming challenge from Lagos, Ibadan, Port Harcourt, Warri, Abuja and Owerri battled for the star prize at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos on Saturday.

“It was quite tough and indeed an interesting battlefield but I’m so excited to emerge as the winner. The N1.5m cash is the in-thing and the 65’’ OLED TV is great. I hope this platform that LG has created for gamers continue to grow stronger and birth more opportunities for professional gamers and amateurs in the E-Sport industry,” Manzo said after his hard-fought win.
