#94 SHARE – OLADELE OLAFUYI
Is the world you live in, how you want it? In this episode, I bring you Dele Olafuyi, who didn’t like what he found when he started reading to his small son. Instead of getting irked but doing nothing, my friend, he got up and created Kunda Kids, a publishing and creative media studio that illuminates African stories through books, songs, animations and games.
Dele sits down with me today to share the stats behind characters in kids books (grab a chair, they’re shocking), the effects on this on all our children, plus his big hopes for making this world a better place. This is a man on a mission & we’re cheering him on every step of the way!
