Not a lot of celebrities are willing to associate with anything remotely geeky. From pop-culture references to gaming. Rabi Peerzada, on the other hand, is an oddball.
The songstress was seen at a game store in Pace Lahore. According to Rabi Peerzada, she doesn’t just love gaming, it’s where she finds solace, besides work.
“I love to play games, and PS4 is my second place to seek refuge from my work,”
Of course, like most gamers, she’s into Grand Theft Auto (which one though?).
While in this day and age, you’d think people would be more accepting of a female gamer. Yet on Rabi Peerzada’s Facebook post, there was no shortage of sexist comments.
We can’t say for sure on a scale of 1-10 how much of a gaming geek Rabi Peerzada is. But one thing’s for sure. We need to stop discouraging men and women from doing something they love, are good and find refuge in, based on gender.
Of all the sports in the world, how has gaming been reduced to another male-only sport? Gaming was created to oppose the traditional sports cliques with jocks and cheerleaders. And video games do that just fine.
Lahore and Gaming
Turns out the Lahore gaming scene is going strong. In case you forgot this is the city that churned out Arslan Ash. Recently he won another EVO Tournament for Tekken 7.
Once again Arsalan Ash was crowned champion of Tekken 7 at the world’s biggest and most prestigious fighting game tournament, Evo 2019, in Las Vegas.
8 Players , 4 Countries, 1 Champion.

Gaming sports are all the rage in Asia. In fact, Asian largely contributed to gaming be declared a sport. Whenever people think of Asians they think of South-East Asians, not really brown people.
Amid all the greatest Asian players and best gamers in the world, there he was a brown guy in EVO Japan. Arsalan Ash has just spiraled upwards since then.
