.

Enter in disruptors – Aris Persidis of GridNewsBureau (GNB) and Tobi Lufadeju of NextPlayerON. GNB and NPO announced their collaboration deal in esports engagement in 2021 as well as a pledge to help counteract a rise in trolls and hate into the esport gaming experience.

Tobi Lufadeju is a serial entrepreneur and an accomplished information technology leader with over 18 years of experience developing innovative technical solutions, leading tech teams, and creating strategies to drive business and technology alignment. His focus has since transitioned to product, business, and marketing strategy as the COO of NextPlayerON.

“As a co-founder and COO of NextPlayerON – we focus on leveraging esports to create an ecosystem that empowers communities, educates students, and offers a path to generating income as a professional gamer. And our strategic partnership with GNB allows this vision to come full blossom” , states Tobi Lufadeju.

Through NextPlayerON, the opportunity to impact the world is real. Providing students with scholarships, schools with better student engagement, children with better life choices, and new revenue sources serves as true impact.

“This idea of innovation in how we experience sports is what drives me. It is also what drives our powerful deal with the great folks at NPO.” , states Aris Persidis.

 GNB has announced a wonderful deal with NexPlayerON in the esports vertical. Based on the idea of innovation in how we experience sports is what drives this partnership. Especially the NPO angle that shows how esports properly done can be the great equalizer among young people who may not be physically gifted for a live sport.

“The specific focus of our work with NPO is to use GNB’s content engagement platform to bring actual real-time engagement to the e-sport platform. Viewers and participants in esports only have old-style social media to engage/comment. This brings trolls and hate into the experience. We want to change all that. Showcasing the emotional angle and intensity of taking part in top flight esports is as much part of the narrative as the outcome. We are very excited about that.” states Persidis.

Published

on

“Music is an expression of my feelings and emotions.” Lindsay Barrz, a self-taught hip-hop artist from Northern New Jersey, says. She has been a percussionist since the 4th grade, where she first learned how to keep a beat. Barrz wrote her first song when she was 16 after a wrenching heartbreak, and so, her poetic skills turned into rap skills from that day on. Her first single, ‘The Last Visit,’ created a buzz amongst friends, family, and acquaintances, coming as a surprise and throwing a wrench in the stereotypical cogwheel. 

As Barrz has developed more as a woman, so has she as a spiritually wealthy artist. Once only making music with the best of the talent, she switched up her approach to doing every song and every feature, even if it’s a free one. She would rather network and create lasting relationships than squander an opportunity over money.

Lindsay Barrz has several singles dropping in the next few months. She says that she doesn’t go long without giving her fanbase a new song to enjoy. She has finally settled for music and she is now focusing to take her music to the next level. This has made her organize for a big release of her single “Persona Non Grata,” meaning a character not welcomed, and will be accompanied by its high-budget, official music video.As she concludes, Lindsay Barrz had something for her haters, “I got where I am today by a lot of hard work and perseverance. What really propelled me forward was being a woman in a man’s game. The haters will never know how much they have pushed me to the top.”
