Akosi Dogie is the newest Wild Wift Brand Ambassador of the Philippines

Popular Mobile Legends streamer and professional gamer Setsuna “Akosi Dogie” Ignacio is now joining the Rift community after being announced as the first ever Wild Rift Brand Ambassador in the Philippines.


After playing multiple games in the previous years and his undeniable influence in the gaming industry, Dogie is finally entering the Wild Rift. The announcement was revealed by Riot PH Brand Manager Joel Guzman during the Glam Slam Grand Finals on June 28.

While some fans are happy about the announcement as it could potentially boost the game’s popularity, others seem not to forget Dogie’s past issues regarding his statement back in 2020, where he hinted that League of Legends in the Philippines is ‘dead’.

One Facebook user commented that Wild Rift had never been a dead game and stated that Dogie only joined the community because of Riot’s “malaking bigay," implying that he joined the Rift due to the amount of money he’s getting from Riot compared to his previous game, Mobile Legends.


Dogie was furiously pressed over the comment and responded through his Facebook post.

“Dead game naman talaga WR (Wild Rift) at LOL (League of Legends) PC dito sa pinas.”

He started on his post, standing firm on his statement four years ago, even though he's already a brand ambassador for Wilf Rift Philippines.

He added, “Walang pro-team sa Wild Rift for PH (Philippines). Dati meron [ang] BLACKLIST, ngayon wala na.”

“If di kayo masaya, happy naman akong i-void contract ko kay Riot. Never ko naman naging habol ang pera dito; Nasasayangan lang ako sa game.”

He even stated how willing they are to organize a Wild Rift tournament for local gamers without revenues, hinting that the prize pool for the Dayo Series might be coming from his own pocket as he refused to accept a paycheck from Riot.

Akosi Dogie has been an iconic figure in the gaming industry and even in the professional esports scene in the Philippines, where he has also played in various MLBB tournaments. With over 10 million followers on his various social media platforms, he is currently managing the MPL PH team Minana EVOS while still doing gaming vlogs and such.
