Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira Has Joined Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports Agency

Zimbabwean-born professional rugby player, Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira has joined Roc Nation Sports Agency founded by Jay-Z in 2013. 

A sports agent is a legal representative for professional sports figures such as athletes and coaches. They procure and negotiate employment and endorsement contracts for the athlete or coach whom they represent. Roc Nation will manage Mtawarira’s brand, commercial entities and philanthropic ventures.
After retiring from all forms of rugby, Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira, is keen to find new opportunities after the Covid-19 pandemic cut short a stint with Old Glory DC in America’s Major League Rugby. He previously played for the South Africa national team and the Sharks in Super Rugby.

"I am thrilled and truly honored to be involved with Roc Nation Sports. The brand is dynamic and forward thinking and that’s exactly what I need in this next chapter of my life." said Tendai in a statement

Roc Nation Sports, a sub-division of Roc Nation, launched in spring 2013. Founder Shawn "JAY-Z" Carter's love of sports led to the natural formation of the agency, supporting athletes in the same way Roc Nation has been working alongside and advocating for artists in the music industry for years. Roc Nation Sports focuses on elevating athletes' careers on a global scale both on and off the field. Roc Nation Sports conceptualizes and executes marketing and endorsement deals, community outreach, charitable tie-ins, media relations, and brand strategy.

"Roc Nation Sports is delighted and honored to have Beast as a part of our growing family. He is a legend of the game with a remarkable story. We look forward to helping him grow his brand and legacy on a global stage in this exciting new chapter of his career." said Michael Yormak, Roc Nation Sports President in a statement

Tendai Joins Springboks Siya Kolisi and Cheslin Kolbe as well as England international Maro Itoje in a growing list of rugby talent on Roc Nation’s books. Proteas fast bowler Lungi Ngidi has also signed with the agency.
