Tutu, The Untold Story of a Kingdom tells the story of Osei Tutu and the rise of the 17th century of the Ashanti Kingdom located in what is now modern-day Ghana, West Africa. Our main characters Osei Tutu and Okomfo Anokye embark on a journey to unite divided Akan clans.

Their epic adventure is filled with ingenuity, love, challenges, courage and a whole lot of magic! Tutu not only promotes cultural pride but stands to preserve our African history as we have collaborated with historians, writers and creatives across the continent to ensure its accuracy. Rooted in unity, Tutu is a family-friendly animation that coveys the theme “United we stand, divided we fall” and also draws upon ancestral connection and harmonizing with nature - a concept important in our global endeavours to conserve our environment. We need your help to bring this animation to life and hope to get your support!
