Disney animation series, “Iwájú” made its official debut on DStv, Disney Channel (Channel 303), and GOtv Channel 92 on Monday, April 22, 2024, and is set to captivate audiences until April 26. Just two episodes in, it’s evident that viewers are embarking on an exciting journey.

The premiere episode introduces us to Tola Martins, a privileged 10-year-old surrounded by luxury but restricted by her father, Tunde, from venturing outside. As tension mounts within the household, with Tunde buried in work and Tola craving attention, viewers are drawn into a compelling narrative.

The series paints a visually stunning picture of futuristic Lagos, Nigeria, seamlessly blending familiarity with innovation. From flying cars to digital hawkers, the essence of Lagos is authentically captured, offering a glimpse into a vibrant future.

One notable aspect is the diverse use of Nigerian languages, showcasing African culture while integrating Pidgin as a common tongue. Tola’s embrace of her Yoruba heritage adds depth to her character.
