Africa’s Legends is a series by Leti Arts that brings Africa’s folklore and historic legends to life through interactive entertainment such as digital comics, mobile games and in the future, TV shows and full length movies.
Africa’s Legends balances the two parts of Leti Arts’ portfolio of characters, historic and folkloric legends and fictional characters, battling crime in Africa, as the continent’s elite group of superheroes. Africa’s Legends brings the classic clash of good versus evil from an African perspective to a worldwide audience. Africa’s elite superheroes, Africa’s Legends, battle master criminals from Africa and around the world.
The series follows the exploits of characters such as Ananse, Shaka, Pharaoh, Wuzu the Massai Warrior and Shizo, an ex-cop turned vigilante against corruption. It also follows the plots and schemes of master villains such as The Pirate and The Wodaabe Assassin.
Our goal of merging the past with the present in an exciting and compelling format is to encourage younger generations to be genuinely excited about African history and culture. The more relevant we make history and culture in education, the better the long term prospects for preserving culture and heritage.
We are proud to deliver this on cutting edge technology, both hardware and software, from our partner Intel.
