The latest episode of Red Bull’s Unfold esports documentary series showcases South Africa’s own Thabo “Yvng Savage” Moloi.

The teen is known for his meteoric rise in the professional FIFA scene, which resulted in him being named the first Red Bull Athlete for Africa.

He began competing professionally at 16 years old, training for three months before his first tournament. It was at that tournament — the VS Gaming FIFA Festival 2018 — that he was crowned champion.

Following the tournament, he joined local esports team Goliath Gaming.

Currently, the 19-year-old is taking part in a months-long FIFA tournament — the Umzani eSports League.

But the inclusion in Red Bull’s Unfold documentary series adds an additional accomplishment to his list.

The series has included esports personalists such as Nemanja “huNter” Kovač, Tsunehiro “Gachikun” Kanamori, and Amer “Miracle-” al-Barkawi.

The episode featuring Moloi looks at how he entered the esports industry, as well as his personal life and plans for the future.
