In a regional social outreach strategy spanning content, community and culture
SINGAPORE, 30 September 2021 – The Organising Committee for the Singapore 2021 Global
Esports Games (GEG) taps Singaporean TikTok star, Ng Ming Wei, as one of its KOLs for the
inaugural event taking place in Singapore in December.
With nearly 70%1 of gamers in Asia-Pacific using TikTok, the collaboration with Ming Wei is
part of a strategic approach to engage with gamers on their platform. The collaboration will see
him working on the GEG World Finals, across the three major esports titles: Dota 2 (Valve),
eFootball PES 2021 Season Update (Konami) and Street Fighter V (Capcom).
With a combined following of over 25 million across his social media accounts, the 26-year-old
is also a Taekwondo athlete, with a Commonwealth Taekwondo Championship gold medal and
Southeast Asian Games silver medal under his belt.
“Having visited the Tokyo Olympics in a non-competing capacity, I’m excited to be part of
another world-class event. The tenacity shown by top esports athletes is something I identify
strongly with and I look forward to telling their stories in a compelling way,” said Ming Wei,
founder of Boom Digital Media, a one-stop TikTok specialist agency.
“It is our pleasure to partner with our local Taekwondo athlete and regional TikTok star, Ming
Wei. Through his unique lens, we hope to showcase the sportsmanship of our esports athletes,
amidst the electrifying atmosphere of the GEG World Finals,” said Mark Chay, Olympian,
Nominated Member of Parliament, and member of the Singapore 2021 Global Esports Games
True to its universal values of equality, fair play, diversity, inclusion and innovation, the Global Esports Games will feature multi-title esports competitions, GEFcon – the GEF’s global convention of thought leaders and idea creators, and GEFestival – the dynamic celebration of esports, youth culture, and much more.
