Muyiwa Kayode leads global team to produce Nigeria's 1st animation series

Nigerian kids and indeed kids around the world are set for an exciting time as a new proudly Nigerian cartoon will hit the screens in August!

Adventures of Turtle Taido - an animated cartoon series will soon air on African television. The series is about the adventures of a super-powered, bubbly turtle, Taido, who travels to all the cities across Nigeria in search of knowledge and adventure. Through his journey, he forms incredible friendships with characters of all backgrounds, and learns about the rich cultural attributes of each place he visits.
TURTLE TAIDO reinforces the message that the more we learn and understand other people’s cultures, the more respect and tolerance we will have for diversity. This concept is so important to teach young ones in light of what is going on in the world today.

According to the creator and executive producer, Muyiwa Kayode, “Culture is perhaps the most important element of a people’s identity. However, there is a gradual erosion of our culture in the way our children are being raised, with most of them in the urban areas unable to connect with our cultural values”.
TURTLE TAIDO, primarily developed for children aged 3 to 11 years  will also be enjoyed by people of all ages, because of its entertaining and educative content.
A global team of more than fifty people drawn from Nigeria, Europe and America is working on the 2D animated cartoon series, which is being produced in 4K resolution, the highest standard available in the world today.

While the series is set to go on Nigerian TV screens in August, a Sneak Preview will be held in Lagos on Thursday June 25, for a selected audience, comprising Brand Managers, Broadcast Networks and the Media.

The series is produced with support from the Federal Government of Nigeria’s Project ACT Nollywood Program and endorsed by the Federal Ministry of Tourism, Culture and National Orientation
