Nick Holden

Presenter | Commentator | Shoutcaster | Voice-over artist

Nick Holden is one of the foremost figures in gaming commentary, hosting and presenting in South Africa. Nine years ago, in dire need of a commentator at an esports event, Nick volunteered his voice and hasn’t dropped the mic since. Prior to this Nick managed gaming tournaments co-ordinating esports events for a South African ISP before finding his passion for commentating.

Bringing events to life with his excitable brand of commentary and presenting, Nick has worked alongside professional commentators from across the globe in events such as the Call of Duty: World League, the Injustice 2 South African Cup and the ESL SEC League of Legends Championship.

Nick has cultivated an enviable reputation for himself as a specialist in African esports with an in-depth knowledge of everything from casting (commentating) to hosting competitive video game tournaments both online and physically.

As the co-founder of ACGL (African Cyber Gaming League), one of the leading esports tournament organisations in Africa, Nick is fully immersed in the gaming industry and is able to apply this knowledge in speaking opportunities.
