Tsitsi Chiyuma [Comedian & Game Developer]19 December 2019 | 55 Minute Listen
Tsitsi is nominated for South African of the Year because he is THAT good at game design.

He is also a comedian, but to be honest, I'm just happy to have a podcast with this kid so more people can learn about another Lesser Known Somebody.
