Speaking to Pulse on the inspiration behind the comic, Teni Stuffman said that she realised that one of the best ways to pass a message is to mix it with comedy as attention span is very important.


In her words,“So as people are laughing and you are making the messages very subtle, they will easily internalize it.”

About ‘The Kinsman’

The Kinsman tells the story of Nneoma who decides to return to Nigeria from Cotonou after losing her husband and two sons.

Nneoma’s devoted daughter in-law, and late son’s widow, Nadia, insist on following her back.
