Nigerian cartoon goes global
Nigerian cartoon Bino & Fino, created by local animation studio EVCL’s director Adamu Waziri, has been licensed in countries around the world.
Picked up for global distribution by UK-based Edutainment Licensing late last year, the series is now available in 15 countries, including the US, the UK and parts of Europe.
The 2D educational preschool show can be seen via YouTube as well as on kids’ streamer Hopster, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines’ in-flight service, Dutch kids’ channel Pebble TV and US university and library streaming service Kanopy.
Waziri, who developed the toon after discovering that most Nigerian children watch foreign shows, said the series aims to promote African stories globally.
Bino & Fino follows the adventures of the titular Nigerian siblings as they learn about African food, animals, countries, languages, instruments, geography and folk tales.
