The gaming community in Qatar is vibrant and full of talented individuals. Jamal Al-Lenjawi, also known online as Lengo213, is among those that have been shining in the community. He has been taking the streaming scene by storm with his fun gameplays and love for horror games where his viewers can interact and take part through stream sound alerts.

Get to know more about him, his passion for gaming and streaming, PC building, and his collection of figures.

ILQ: Tell us about yourself and the content you produce.

JA: My name is Jamal Al-Lenjawi also known as Lengo213, I was born and raised in the United States then moved to Qatar in 1990, where I was introduced to Atari by my dad and that's where my passion for gaming started. I make gaming content mostly and I also build PCs live on stream for fun, and to educate people on how to build.

ILQ: Tell us more about the horror game genre and why you enjoy playing them?

JA: All the games are fun and exciting, but to me, horror games have a special place in my heart, as the viewers enjoy the engagement with me as I have many sound alerts that they can play to either annoy me or "try" to scare me, it makes it way more entertaining. Plus the jump scares scare them too which makes it funnier as well.

I recommend games like Dead By Daylight, Phasmophobia, Blair Witch, Ghost Exile and The Mortuary Assistant (which is a demo for now until it's released).

ILQ: What game in recent years has impacted you most?

JA: I will always say this! Metal Gear Solid was and always will be my favourite, as the graphics and playing style were ahead of its time. But the storyline has brought me joy, excitement, and tears over the years. Hideo Kojima is just brilliant!

ILQ: What got you into streaming?

JA: It started with me playing games for friends who are disabled and couldn't play, so I would play the games instead of them while we hung out. I'd stream them on a chatting app called Discord and have them make the choices for me. Then I decided to go on Twitch as people seem to enjoy it a lot.

ILQ: Can you tell us more about your PC and streaming setup?

JA: My PC specs are:

  • CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K @ 3.60GHz
  • RAM: Trident Z RGB 64 GB
  • GPU: Zotac RTX 3090
  • Motherboard: MSI Z390 MEG Godlike
  • CPU cooler: NZXT liquid cooler X72
  • Power Source: 1200 Cooler Master
  • Case: Cougar Conquer 2
  • OS: Windows 11 Home edition.

I originally built this PC with an RTX 2080ti GPU and in 2021 on my birthday (which is on the 13th of February, which also explains why I have 213 after Lengo), I got an RTX 3090 as a gift from a dear friend who I consider family. (Thank you again!).

My streaming setup is mostly Elgato products which I purchased proudly from Store974. I use Stream Deck XL, Wave XLR, Elgato Key Light and an XLR Mic by Boya.

ILQ: What advice would you give aspiring gaming content creators?

JA: Stop being shy! You're all super awesome, and you need to use your passion and awesomeness to put Qatar on the e-sports or e-gaming map.

ILQ: Can you tell us about the gaming community in Qatar?

JA: There's not much to tell as it's booming at the moment, and I love how everyone is getting more involved.

I always used to ask the same question and wonder, "we have great players here, why don't they stream or create official tournaments?" but thankfully, we have the answer now with the e-gaming community, Store974 and Mr Q helping with that.

ILQ: What gaming-related events would you like to see more in Qatar?

JA: I would like to see more games, not just Fortnite and FIFA. Like more Call of Duty events or Roller Champions where teams coordinate to win the matches.

ILQ: Can you tell us about your collection of figures and collectibles?

JA: I was inspired by my uncle Chris (my mother's brother), who used to collect He-Man figures and Star Wars.

I am not as close to being a "pro collector". Everything you see on the shelves are mostly the toys I grew up playing with as a child. They're in mint condition, as I used to love taking care of my things and still do to this day.

The collection includes Star Wars 2nd gen figures, Marvel figures, a lot of Transformers figures (rare and new), DC figures and a few movie props and masks.

ILQ: What's your favourite from your collection and why?

JA: I don't have a favourite, they're all my favourites, as they have different memories attached to them. I do have a few figures that stand out from the others, for example, my Iron Man Mark L figure is just different from all my Iron Man figures as it's way more detailed and it comes with so many accessories.

Another is this awesome Batman figure by Bandai, a model kit I had to build or put together. I love building things, maybe that's why I am a senior engineer.

Finally, some of my Star Wars figures stand out from the others, I used to keep them beside my pillow before going to sleep as a kid. They've been with me through happy and sad times, so I can't imagine giving them away to anyone or selling them.

ILQ: Is there anything else you would like to tell us?

JA: Thank you guys for choosing me to be featured on ILQ, I am a huge fan.
