A prolific Nollywood filmmaker and director of the Wedding Party 2, Niyi Akinmolayan has taken to his Instagram page to unveil a free animated video to help educate kids on the COVID-19 pandemic.
National Sportslink learned that the 90 seconds animation made in four languages was directed by Bukky Awomolo and animated by Chikeluba Nebeolise, Bukky Awomolo, Ogunremi Oluwakayode, Momodu Tahir and Eri Umusu.
He wrote, MESSAGE TO OUR LEADERS OF TOMORROW: We have made this beautiful 90secs animation in four languages to explain the lockdown and coronavirus to kids. Our CEO @niyi_akinmolayan came up with this brilliant idea after trying to explain the pandemic to his 5yr old.
“Just like our last video that went viral, We have created a folder with all the videos (download link in bio). There are high-quality copies for broadcast and online use and there are also WhatsApp versions to share. Please let’s get it on all TV stations and if anyone can sponsor on youtube, they should. We couldn’t get to use a studio to record other languages so they aren’t as crisp.
“We have attached a music and effect file for anyone who wants to rework the dialogue to taste.
Remember it’s free to use. Just acknowledge @anthillstudios_ many thanks to all my wonderful staff for doing this great work.
“Directed by @bukky_awomolo, Animated by @bukky_awomolo @nebeolise @sax_kay @_taheer_efe @eriumusu

We love you all. Please do share and let’s help educate the kids! #staysafe #kidsfirst #familyfirst.”
