‘Papa Ajasco and Company Reloaded’ tackles rape, child abuse, early marriage

Wale Adenuga Productions has partnered with KIN Production to execute a project commissioned by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation for the production of a special season of ‘Papa Ajasco and Company Reloaded’ which advocates against gender-based violence.

In line with the European Union and United Nations Spotlight Initiative programme, the special season of the show 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 and illiteracy, as well as the ‘culture of silence’; all aimed at bringing about positive changes in social norms, attitude and behaviours.

The Managing Director of WAP, Wale Adenuga (Jnr) said, “Over the years, we have collaborated with the National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons, Society for Family Health, Securities and Exchange Commission Nigeria, National Agency for the Control of AIDS, Voices 4 Change, Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, and other organisations to use our popular TV programmes as effective tools for enlightening the populace and promoting societal change on specific issues. We would be revealing more details about our partnership with KIN Production and UNESCO very shortly.”
