“So I’m lookin’ up more
‘Cause I know what I’m up for
‘Cause we need a change
And I’m startin’ an uproar

Yeah we startin’ a ruckus (ha, ha)”

                                                  Ruckus: Konata Small



From our Sports Shows on Community Radio, to our twice-weekly TV Shows focusing on the Fite Sports and eGaming Communities.

We showcase the young Sportsmen/Women, the Coaches, the Gamers and the Brands within the #PunchyKicky and Esports Communities.


From innovative conceptualisation, event management and event hosting, we offer young sportsmen/women the opportunity to showcase their skills and talents.

Its only an experience once you feel it!


The work of an Opinionista is very easy!
We risk very little, yet offer judgement over the work and skill of others.

Highlighting the issues is controversial and often deemed negative, but it’s the only way to make the world uncomfortable.
