Craig Nicholson is the first Xbox MVP in Africa

38 second read

A huge congratulations to Craig Nicholson who has become the first Microsoft MVP for Xbox in Africa.

As many of the people in the gaming community know, Craig has always been around doing his best to help out anyone with a problem and really pushing the Xbox cause in South Africa.

Becoming an Xbox MVP is no small feat and it takes a lot of dedication and a third party nomination before even being considered. Very few people are ever chosen.

Hopefully this will also go a way to helping us get recognised as a true Xbox 360 territory with all the benefits that come with that.

    An MVP award is a peer award given by Microsoft to those who excel in a particular field, whether it be technically, from a community building standpoint or whatever. Typically it’s bestowed on specialists in a particular field, like Windows development, SQL server, ASP.NET, C# etc etc.

    There’s no “way of earning it”, you have to be nominated by another MVP, then the panel decides whether you should be recognised.
