Wale Adenuga, producer of Superstory TV Drama, Papa Ajasco & Company TV Comedy among other award-winning family dramas recently brought his wealth of experience to bear as a panelist at a workshop tagged “Sketch and Satire: The Art & Impact of Editorial Cartooning” which held in Lagos.

Organized by the United States of America Consulate General, and Punch Media Foundation, the event was held at 21st Century Technologies Headquarters, Lekki.

Adenuga was invited as a key panelist following his past work as a renowned cartoonist and publisher of several comics and magazines, including Binta Kids’ Magazine, Superstory Magazine, as well as the highly successful Ikebe Super Magazine which, at its peak in the 1970s and 1980s, was selling over 500,000 copies every month; becoming one of the highest-selling magazines in Nigeria’s history.

Adenuga said, “I am honoured to be one of the panelists at this distinguished event which celebrates the art of cartooning and the overall strategic use of comedy to promote development. It is always a joy to share my vast experience and knowledge with the emerging generations of writers, cartoonists and creatives. I appreciate the United States of America Consulate General and Punch Media Foundation for putting this event together, and having me come on board to contribute”.

Adenuga also used the opportunity to share copies of his recently-published biography, “An Unusual Biography: Wale Adenuga MFR; A Pencil in the Hand of the Creator” to members of the organizing committee, attendees and Barbara Brandon-Croft , an award-winning American cartoonist, who was one of the panelists.
