This has led one Nigerian woman to create a mobile phone application, or app, as a way to preserve African folk stories. Elizabeth Kperrun is a businesswoman and fashion designer. She calls her mobile app AfroTalez. The AfroTalez app tells children’s stories that teach moral lessons. Ms. Kperrun says she wanted to create the app to preserve some of the stories told to her when she was a child in Nigeria. AfroTalez is designed for children ages two to 10. The voice of “Aunt Liz” narrates the story, while a full-screen animation, or moving graphic picture, appears. An arrow signals when it is time to move on. There are also quizzes on object recognition and counting throughout. Kperrun writes and reads the stories. Her business partner and husband Idamiebi Ilamina-Eremie does the animation. AfroTalez is available for Android users and can be downloaded for free in the Google Play store. So far, AfroTalez has more than 50,000 users. Funding for the app has been a major challenge. Ms. Kperrun hopes to use a crowdfunding campaign to help pay for the next version of AfroTalez to be released this year. Ms. Kperrun says technology does not have to destroy or replace traditions. She says her goal is to combine both new technology and old traditions to keep African culture alive.
