1% of books published in the UK feature a black character. Finding informative and fun stories on ancient African history is nigh impossible. Dele and Louisa decided to write and publish their own books for their son and the world.
Kunda Kids is a publishing and creative media studio, with a diverse team of African writers, illustrators, musicians and animators, with a single purpose: to inspire the next generation of young people about ancient and modern African history and culture.
Kunda Kids is based in London, and create books, songs and animations that are fun and insightful for children aged 0 - 8 years.
The studio was founded by husband-and-wife Dele and Louisa Olafuyi during the lockdown. The couple failed to find modern and engaging content for their son about Africa’s ancient history, so they decided to create their own.
