Nigerian football legend Jay Jay Okocha animated the series with a piece on the African streaming platform Showmax.

He may not be as famous in other parts of the world as Lionel Messi, who is getting his own animated series, but in Nigeria, no footballer is as revered as augustine "Jay-Jay" Okocha.That childhood is loosely adapted as an animated series at showmax.

Jay Jay: The Chosen One animation isn't the most impressive we've seen from Nigeria.At Annecy, we regularly try to catch some of the impressive projects that have been pitched from this country.However, The Chosen One is a 100% Nigerian original commissioned by the African platform and is a major step forward for the fast-growing local industry.
