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.
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.”
