Wale Adenuga Productions (WAP) and KIN Productions have teamed up to execute a UNESCO-commissioned project, which is the production of a special season of Papa Ajasco & Company Reloaded, meant as an advocacy programme against gender-based violence.
In line with the European Union and United Nations Spotlight Initiative programme, the Papa Ajasco & Company Reloaded would feature 13 episodes of several stories advocating against all forms of gender-based violence; including rape, battery, child abuse, homicide, early marriage, female genital mutilation, HIV, illiteracy, as well as culture of silence – all aimed at bringing about positive changes in social norms, attitude and behaviours.
Speaking on the project, WAP’s Managing Director, Wale Adenuga Jr., said: “Over the years, we have collaborated with National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons (NAPTIP), Society for Family Health (SFH), Securities and Exchange Commission Nigeria (SEC), National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA), Voices 4 Change, Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, and other organisations, using our popular TV programmes as effective tools for enlightening the populace and promoting societal change on specific issues. We’ll reveal more details about our partnership with KIN Production and UNESCO very shortly.”
