Founded in 2016 with a dream of changing the animation industry in Nigeria and bringing global attention to this part of Africa, Ayodele Elegba aka the DREAMMAKER resigns his job and rents a small room apartment studio. With just four artists and himself, SPOOF MEDIA LTD was born.
But in just 6 months of operation, SPOOF emerged winner for the 2016 Digital Lab Africa Competition and consecutively received international funding for its pilot Animated TV series AREA DADDY which was the very first in Nigeria at the time. SPOOF has also been nominated in several animation film festivals and has worked with such brands as Coca Cola, Heineken, LEARN AFRICA etc. Our animated 2d short for the STRIKEGUARD comic book adaptation was also globally received in 2017 at the Lagos Comic Convention among other 2d shorts created.
SPOOF has since grown to a capacity of 21 in house animators, digital painters and concept artist and with a well spaced newly acquired and conducive duplex apartment in Lagos, Nigeria, SPOOF ANIMATION can now deliver magic like never seen before. Our chore values of PASSION LOVE EXCELLENCE ACCOUNTABILITY and SPEED (PLEAS) have seen us through since inception and our goal is to become a global brand in 2D animation but with our base in Nigeria.
