I stumbled upon this series and I’m very excited about its development and completion. For those of us who loved Kirikou and have been longing for more African animated films and series, here is one I feel has a lot of promise. It’s on Nim Street seeking donations to complete the pilot. We can do much better than the pledge amount I see on the site. So, support. The pictures in the photoset are sketches of some of the series’s characters. The final picture is of the creator of the series, Akua Ofosuhene.
