Nicademia is a start-up that operates a platform for animations and cartoons from Africa that reflect the continent’s myriad different cultures. High-quality African animation is rarely on offer in African countries, and this despite the fact that imported cartoons do not really reflect the various lifestyles of Africa’s different peoples.
Nicademia produces, aggregates and distributes African-inspired cartoons and is already one of the largest portals for African cartoons in the world. By opening up an African market for animation, the startup is also creating a forum to showcase and promote Africa’s cultures, traditions and languages to the world. Nicademia also runs its own company that produces animations and films for individuals, organisations and government agencies.
