After a successful debut of Nnena and friends TV show, the popular edutainment programme from Wale Adenuga Productions (WAP), now showing in about 30 stations across the nation, tongues are beginning to wag that Wale Adenuga, the veteran and famous entertainment merchant is bigger than children programs.
In response to this, Wale Adenuga said, ‘a lot of people have ignored the children programmes because it is not as lucrative as the adult programmes, but for me money is not everything. If you want to correct the ills in any society, you start with the minds of the young ones, before they grow old into the corrupt system. There are fewer children programme on TV right now and some of the few existing are foreign programmes bereft of African values. We need to restore moral values in the children and the TV is an easy route to achieve this. I believe the children are our future and I do not underestimate the importance of children; for these reasons I will keep investing in children programs’.
Recorded under High Definition Equipments, for better picture quality, Nnena and Friends TV programme is to be hosted by Olayinka Olukunga Rufus (Nnena) and it contains segment such as drama, interviews, storytelling, counselling, music, arts and crafts, African culture and traditions, fashion and tourism and others.
Nnena and Friends sprang up after Yinka Olukunga played the role of Nnena in one of the popular soaps of Wale Adenuga Production (WAP), Superstory. Her character evolved into an entertainment brand with wide followership. The yearly Nnena and Friends shows has become the delight of so many children and this show is what has transcended into a TV programme.
Obviously long awaited, Nnena and Friends TV show has been enjoying a lot of followership in just about two weeks of its existence.
