About Bino and Fino
Bino & Fino is a leading educational brand that provides quality programming and merchandise about the rich history and culture of Africa. It is a magical platform that teaches children through the colorful and inspiring lens of African influences.
The idea for the Bino & Fino cartoon series came about around 2007. The creator of the show, Adamu Waziri, realised that there was a massive lack of true African made children's educational cartoon shows. In Nigeria at the time there were no indigenous cartoon shows that showed children a reflection of themselves. All the cartoon shows were imported and had no link to Africa in anyway.
Children are highly impressionable and the human brains learning capacity is the most between 0-6 years. Children’s media is one of the most powerful when it comes to shaping minds. So the fact that children across the world had no cartoon they could watch that genuinely taught them about Africa or represented the continent in a proper way was a worrying one.
The Bino & Fino Cartoon Show was created to help rectify this imbalance.
From viewers who share the same African heritage to families mixed with several other, to viewers with absolutely no ties to African heritage, Bino & Fino inspire them to learn. Viewers and consumers who support this brand are learning to discover the wonders of Africa and its contributions to the world. It is a microcosm of how all peoples and cultures can live harmoniously in honor of each other, regardless of differences. This brand teaches the core values of life, love, and family while educating children around the world to discover the true and inspiring culture of Africa.
The show is for parents, schools, home-schoolers and others who are finding it difficult to find positive, fun, educational content about Africa for their children to watch.
Bino & Fino is produced by EVCL which is an animation studio based in Abuja, Nigeria.
