What Is Bino and Fino
The Bino and Fino Show is about a brother and sister who live in a modern day city in Africa.In each episode Bino and Fino, with the help of their friend Zeena the Magic Butterfly and their family, discover and learn things about Africa and the world. The show is made in Nigeria.
We love the DVD! It's very informative regarding Africa, Black people are pictured in a positive way and my daughter feels connected to the characters because Fino looks just like her
I have two children, a girl and boy and they loved the show. There father is from Tanzania so it is great to see cartoon characters that represent African culture in a positive way
As a parent and an African cultural educator, the importance of Bino and Fino cannot be overstated.
“The children’s media world needs more African voices”
Adamu waziri | creator
Years ago, the creator of Bino & Fino Adamu Waziri, realised that there weren't any African made children's cartoon shows on TV in Nigeria. No local cartoon shows that showed children a reflection of themselves. All the cartoon shows were foreign and had no link to Africa in anyway. The most populous African country had no children's cartoons for its children. This was crazy to him.
Children’s media is one of the most powerful when it comes to shaping minds. So the fact that children in Nigeria and across the world had no cartoon they could watch that represented the continent in a positive way was a worrying one. The Bino & Fino Cartoon Show was created to help rectify this imbalance.
