Empowering and Educating Children. Positively Representing The African Continent.

In today’s ever polarising but increasingly connected world it is important for children to have access to media represents them and positively represents others. Many people understand the power of media to shape minds, especially young ones. One of the mediums children really love is that of animation or cartoon shows. Unfortunately there are very few genuine African and Afrocentric cartoons for children out there. Currently children of the wide African Diaspora don’t have much choice when it comes to cartoons that represent them in anyway culturally or visually. Also children and parents from around the world don’t have many cartoon brands they can use to show their children that genuinely represent the continent of Africa. The culture and history of Africa is something that should be shared positively with children around the world. A powerful African children's cartoon brand is a wonderful way to do this. 

Introducing Bino & Fino!

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.
