MOONTON Games and the Nigerian  Nigeria Esports Federation (NESF) join hands to promote Mobile Legends Bang Bang esports in the country.

Under this partnership, MOONTON will authorize and support NESF-backed Mobile Legend Bang Bang tournaments in Nigeria. This includes the prestigious National League and its Qualifying events.

MOONTON is committing major resources to help grow these competitions through:

  • Extensive marketing campaigns
  • Broadcast production support and APIs
  • Special in-game rewards for competitors

With this level of backing from the game’s publisher, MLBB esports events in Nigeria are poised to reach massive audiences and offer players lucrative prizes and opportunities.

Why is Mobile Legends the Perfect Esports for Nigeria?

As a free mobile game, the accessibility of Mobile Legends gives it a huge grassroots appeal in a mobile-first gaming market like Nigeria.

The 5v5 multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) gameplay is easy to understand and offers great strategic depth for both elite and naive players.

Also, the M-Series esports circuit is one of the biggest and most viewed in mobile esports globally.

With MOONTON’s full support, NESF can now build an elite MLBB esports ecosystem from the ground up, creating a clear path for Nigerian gamers to potentially join the professional ranks.

Here are the top 10 mobile games in Nigeria in 2023 according to Tribe Gaming:

  • Call of Duty Mobile (CODM) – 40%
  • Free Fire – 23%
  • PUBG Mobile – 13%
  • Brawl Stars – 2%
  • Clash of Clans – 5%
  • Clash Royale – 3%
  • Hay Day – 2%
  • Farlight 84 – 8%
  • eFootball Mobile – 3%
  • Subway Surfers – 1%


What’s Next for Nigerian MLBB Esports?

According to NESF President Ahaya Maikori, national MLBB qualifiers are already being planned to determine Nigeria’s representatives for the 2024 IESF World Esports Championships in Riyadh.

The IESF World Esports Championships is an annual $1M event for Dota 2, Counter-Strike 2, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, PUBG Mobile, and eFootball.
