Watch DeMar DeRozan’s Team World take on Joel Embiid’s Team Africa in the NBA Africa Game, LIVE on Kwesé Free Sports.

Kwesé Sports is dedicated to bringing the NBA to Africa, and Africa to the NBA. This year will see the third edition of the NBA Africa Game as Kwesé Sports partners with the NBA to expand into Africa.

The big Cameroonian Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers) will lead Team Africa, while DeMar DeRozan (Toronto Raptors) leads Team World. Africa enjoys a long and positive association with the NBA, with the likes of the great Hakeem Olajuwon (Nigerian-America) setting the standard for others to follow. This season there were 14 African-born players on the rosters of different NBA teams, and as many as 40 who have direct African links.

The NBA has various initiatives to grow the sport of basketball in Africa, including the Basketball Without Borders programme.  Some of the stars will also use their time in South Africa to connect with local communities and lend their spirit, and helping hand, to various community projects.

Be part of this great initiative and watch the NBA Africa Game on Kwesé Free Sports or on OVHD in South Africa (4 August; Build-up starts at 16:00 CAT, Game starts 17:00 CAT).

Team Africa will include: Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers; Cameroon), Al-Farouq Aminu (Portland Trail Blazers; US; parents from Nigeria), Bismack Biyombo (Orlando Magic; Democratic Republic of the Congo), Cheick Diallo (New Orleans Pelicans; Mali), Evan Fournier (Magic; France; parent from Algeria), Serge Ibaka (Toronto Raptors; Republic of the Congo), Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (76ers; France; parent from Democratic Republic of the Congo), and Pascal Siakam (Raptors; Cameroon)
