Golden is a pro gamer and is part of the Ugandan clan Navvi who play Call of Duty as a clan and compete in tournaments. Joe and Omi talk to him about what got him into competitive gaming, how he switched from being a console gamer to a PC gamer, the hours he's had to put in to be so good, what's in it for him long term, how he feels being a pro gamer and not doing a conventional 9-5 job. Golden also spoke about the thriving e-sports scene in Ghana and in Africa, and how sponsors should stop looking at FIFA as the only competitive game in Ghana and look at games like Apex, COD, Fortnite and PUBG.
