Edutainment to shop Nigerian toon
UK-based distributor Edutainment Licensing has secured global sales rights to a children’s 2D animated series from Nigerian production company EVCL.
Bino & Fino follows the adventures of a brother and sister from Nigeria as they learn about African food, animals, countries, languages, instruments, geography and folk tales.
The series aims to educate and entertain children aged between two and six, and is available in English, French, Portuguese, German and Dutch as well as African languages including Yoruba, Swahili, Igbo, Hausa and Twi.
Ibrahim Waziri, head of business development at EVCL, said: “Digital distribution has opened up a world of educational children’s shows that you wouldn’t typically find on a larger global children’s network but there is demand for. We are looking forward to working with Edutainment licensing to bring Bino & Fino to more children around the world.”
