Announced earlier today, the eSports company ReKTGlobal welcomes music producer Tainy and music executive Lex Borrero, both heavy hitters within the Latin music community, as co-owners of the company. Tainy and Borrero will join EDM artist Steve Aoki and the band Imagine Dragons, who are also part owners of the company. As the two new co-owners, Tainy and Borrero hope to grow both ReKTGlobal and Rogue, their eSports subsidiary, in Latin America.
Marco Masís, more commonly known as Tainy, is a reggaeton music producer. He is well known for his production work on the song “I Like It” by Cardi B, Bad Bunny, and J Balvin. Tainy also produced the majority of J Balvin’s album “Vibras,” and is currently working on his first solo album. “As a passionate gamer and supporter of Rogue, I’m excited to join ReKTGlobal as an investor. When I’m not in the studio, I’m gaming – playing everything from League of Legends, NBA 2K and Final Fantasy to Gears of War, whose soundtrack I’m currently working on, in addition to my own album,” said Tainy regarding the investment.
Tainy’s manager and award-winning executive Lex Borrero will also be joining as an investor of ReKTGlobal. Borrero recently won ASCAP’s Song of the Year Award for his work as a publisher of Zedd’s “The Middle.” Borrero is also a big fan of the work that ReKTGlobal is doing in the eSports scene. “I’ve been watching what ReKTGlobal has been doing in the space since 2017, and I love their vision of merging music and gaming. When the opportunity came up, it was a no brainer,” he says.
ReKTGlobal was founded by Amish Shah and co-founded by David Bialek in 2016. Shah spoke about the addition of Tainy and Borrero, noting that he is excited for them to join the ReKTGlobal family. “With Tainy and Lex’s support, we look forward to continuous growth and elevation of Rogue Nation’s global footprint in Latin America and beyond.” ReKTGlobal is the parent company of Rogue, who has professional teams in multiple games including Apex Legends, Fortnite, Rocket League, FIFA, Rainbow Six: Siege, League of Legends, and Smash Ultimate.
