HOMEBOYZ ANIMATION TO AIR ON CITIZEN TV
Tinga Tinga Tales, an African folk tales animation series co-produced by Homeboyz’ and UK’s Tiger Aspect, is set to debut on a Citizen TV on Sunday’s at 5:30pm.
The show started airing on BBC’s Cbeebies and Disney’s Playhouse early this year. The 52-part TV series is based on Kenyan and Tanzanian folk tales, with a cheeky monkey cast as the lead character.
When Hot Secrets talked to Homeboyz’ CEO Mike Rabar last year about the series, he said, “We are ecstatic.” The one-year project they have been working on has finally seen the light of day.”
The show’s images were hand-painted by Tanzanian artists, then computer animated in Homeboyz’s Nairobi studio before being shipped to the UK.
The show is sponsored by Safaricom.
