MoistCr1TiKaL reveals Moist Esports, announces Smash player Kola as first signing

Twitch streamer Charles "MoistCr1TiKaL" White has never shied away from supporting the Smash community, constantly playing Ultimate on stream and even creating events such as the Soaked Series invitational in 2020, which stands as one of the largest tournaments in Smash history.

Now, Moist has announced the creation of Moist Esports, backing up Ultimate pro and Soaked Series winner Kolawole "Kola" Aideyan as its first sponsored player.

In a quick comment via social media, Moist endorsed the Roy and Cloud main as he's looking to earn a spot for the upcoming Ultimate Summit 3 via community crowdfunding. 

Kola, while being a veteran in multiple Smash games, started to make a name for himself during the recent online era, not only winning the Soaked invitational but also upsetting many top players during the first Quarantine Series tournament, which was also co-hosted by Moist.

At the time of writing, Kola sits in fifth place on the voting stands, needing to reach at least second to earn a spot for the upcoming invitational set to be held starting on 26th August.

This isn't the first time a high-profile streamer decided to directly support a Smash player, with Ludwig Aghren sponsoring the now Golden Guardians rep Zain Naghmi during Genesis 7, an event the Marth main won.
