Nigerian cartoon 'Bino & Fino' takes next adventure to Brazilian TV

- advertisement -
Bino & Fino, the brother and sister duo we have come to know and love, are now attempting to take their fun, educational adventures to Brazil. The South American country is made up of beautiful geographical sites and people of an array of hues, cultures and experiences; however, when it comes to the different media platforms, they are lacking the portrayal of African Heritage for the youth. The Bino & Fino team took this as an opportunity for them to help change the face of African teachings in Brazil. Their plan includes translating their popular educational show into Portuguese and making it accessible to as many Brazilian children as possible. They hope that this will allow those who watch the show to feel pride in their African roots instead of shame or act in denial. Also, if Bino & Fino make it onto the screens in Brazil, they feel the impact and reaction from viewers will lead as a precedent to introduce other shows of it's kind to the media's rotation.
