In Papa Ajasco Reloaded, WAP tackles gender-based violence
As part of its advocacy for a better society, Wale Adenuga Productions (WAP) has, through its popular demand comedy series, Papa Ajasco Reloaded: Special Season, joined the campaign against gender-based violence.
The new campaign, which was commissioned by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), was executed in partnership with KIN Production, a multi disciplinary project management entity.
Commenting on the development, the Managing Director of WAP, Wale Adenuga Jr., said the special season, which is in line with European Union and United Nations Spotlight Initiative programme, would feature 13 episodes of several stories advocating stoppage of all forms of violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, child abuse, homicide, early marriage, female genital mutilation, HIV, and illiteracy.
His words: “Over the years, we have collaborated with the National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons (NAPTIP), Society for Family Health (SFH), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA), 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 change on specific issues.
“We would be revealing more details about our partnership with KIN Production and UNESCO very shortly.”
The multiple award-winning Papa Ajasco Reloaded is watched by millions of viewers across Nigeria and worldwide, through a strategic combination of terrestrial and satellite TV providers, including NTA Network (Tuesdays 8:00 – 8:30pm); STV Network (Saturdays 9:00 – 9:30 pm) and WAP TV (DStv 262, StarTimes 116, GOtv 102, FreeTV 751, Play 275, and MyTV) on Tuesdays 8:30 – 9:00pm.
