For millennials with a heavy interest in gaming, Grand Theft Auto (GTA) will not come off as a strange thing to hear at any point in time.
The American video game first released in 1997 and currently 15 editions in, is now a big part of many young Nigerians and adults alike. With a very high maturity and violence rating, GTA is not a game that should be played by minors.
However, in Nigeria, GTA launched it’s own very local version somewhere in Warri, Delta State. Two brothers Ayo and Bayo Peter, now popularly known as Ayo the Creator and Bayo the Creator, were surrounded by the kind of violence- because of the Warri crisis.
Today, Ayo and Bayo The creators are most popularly known for their work with GTA Naija, a parody of the numerous editions we have seen that has featured artists and important voices like Rema, Joeboy, and TG Omori in its first five episodes.
