Have You Met Bino and Fino Yet?

| September 13, 2012

“Ever since I was 20 or something I just wondered why there weren’t any African cartoons that were big globally. So later on I approached TV stations and companies as well as individuals with the idea of Bino and Fino, but at the end of the day, the feedback ranged from “its risky” to “I don’t understand what you’re talking about and we don’t do cartoons in Nigeria, we don’t watch cartoons”, which was really odd because their kids were watching cartoons so I didn’t really understand. I then decided to pay for it myself, raised a team, and built a little studio in Abuja.” Read the full interview with Adamu Waziri on African Digital Art Network.

And he did! Today the African cartoon Bino and Fino is not only popular in Nigeria, it is popular on international networks such as BBC and CNN.
