“Malika” the Protagonist was played by Adesua Etomi-Wellington. The animation also featured folks like Femi Branch, Deyemi Okanlowon, Sambasa Nzeribe, and Blossom Chukwujekwu.
According to the producer, Niyi Akinmolayan, “the teaser was meant to help him sell the comics for Roye Okupe, but when we finished it. It was too good for that. Meaning it could be much more than this. The potential was there”.
“We decided to try Kickstarter (a website that crowdfunds ideas) and raise money for an animated short”
