Wale Adenuga Productions as its recently-concluded special season of Superstory, titled Free to Live, has bagged a fresh award.
The honour came in the light of the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative, funded by the USAID, a United States of America President’s Malaria Initiative.
Superstory was awarded the Best TV Drama with Malaria Content at a colourful event which took place at Sandralia Hotel, Utako Abuja.
According to the company’s management, the event, in which Wale Adenuga Productions was represented by its Business Development Director, Mr. Claude Mwamba, was organised by the National Malaria Elimination Programme, in conjunction with other partners, as part of the activities commemorating the World Malaria Day.
The Managing Director of WAP, Wale Adenuga Jnr., said “For over a decade, millions of families have been watching Superstory every week, and we do not take this for granted. We are accountable to our audience and, with this in mind, we always ensure that we dish out stories that not only entertain, but also contain socially-relevant messages. Special thanks to the Society for Family Health who partnered us on the Free to Live project. We appreciate this USAID award and vow to continue using our voice to contribute our quota to the overall development of Nigeria.”
The current season of Superstory, titled Godwin, is said to be doing well at providing enlightenment aimed at the eradication of the prevailing stigma surrounding Down Syndrome in Nigeria. It airs across the country on wapTV (DStv 262), StarTimes 116, GOtv 102, Consat 812, StarSat 189 and MyTV); as well as the NTA Network.
