About us

What started out as brothers Pregan and Vishal Pillay talking about movies, music, comics and video games in a recording studio morphed into something bigger thanks to the fantastic response from an ever-growing local geek community.

Established in 2018, Geeks N The Hood (GNTH) is a collective based in the deep South of Johannesburg, with other GNTH contributors all over South Africa. We create and curate content on geek lifestyle in SA, from gaming, cosplay, movies and comics to the latest tech. Our slogan “keep it street, keep it geek” means to stay true to the game while keeping to the core values of being a geek – pretty much just being comfortable with who you are and what your likes and dislikes are.

GNTH aims to create quality, relevant content for all geeks in the hood. That means that whether you’re just someone with a minor interest in something pop-culture or a die-hard fanboy or fangirl – we’ve got you covered!
