Tired of African children watching only imported cartoons that didn’t reflect their lives, Nigerian animator Adamu Waziri decided to do something about it. ”I want to create a brand that’s as good as Dora the Explorer, Charlie and Lola, quality wise, made in Nigeria, that is educational, and also shows positive aspects of Nigerian/African culture, not just to Nigerian or African kids but to kids everywhere,” says Waziri.
