When Nigerian entrepreneur Adebayo Adegbembo noticed his niece had little interest in learning local languages, he realised it was driven by the fact that she didn't have access to interesting and fun material, such as games and cartoons.

He founded Genii Games, a company focused on promoting and preserving African cultures using technology. Genii has developed a range of interactive mobile apps and web videos that teach children subjects ranging from languages to folk tales, ethics and etiquette, including apps Yoruba101 and Igbo101 that help users learn the Yoruba and Igbo languages.
