Africa's video game super heroes

The video gaming industry is dominated by companies from the US and East Asia, but a Ghanaian company, Leti Games, is trying to change that.

The video gaming industry is worth billions of dollars a year. Like the release of big blockbuster movies, the unveiling of the next big game can drive fans - so called gamers - into a frenzy.

The market is very much dominated by companies from the US and East Asia. But Ghanaian Eryam Tawia, along with his friend Wesley Kirinya, found there was a gap in the industry in Africa and created Leti Games to fill it.

Mr Tawia spoke to BBC Africa's reporter in Accra, Akwasi Sarpong, about his passion for video games.
