Tags from the story: Kukua.

Just in time for the holidays, educational entertainment company Kukua has released a brand-new EP celebrating the spirit of the season with a unique mix of Afrobeats and holiday classics.

The album features tracks sung by young African artists, including breakout actor Stycie Waweru (Super Sema, Disney’s Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire), America’s Got Talent finalists the Ndlovu Youth Choir, TikTok star Angel Atieno, and viral Instagram favorite Aiko Bett. Songs include African takes on Jingle Bells, Deck the Halls, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas, along with original tracks inspired by Super Sema’s universe of STEAM-fueled creativity, inspiration, and kid empowerment.

We’re so thrilled to release this EP that combines two of our favorite joys this holiday season – Afrobeats and the spirit and cheer of classic holiday music,” noted Vanessa Ford, Kukua’s Chief of Brand. “We can’t wait to see kids and families around the world singing and dancing along to the Swahili lyrics of some of the most popular holiday songs ever written.

The EP is now streaming on all major music platforms, and music videos for all of the holiday songs can be found on the Super Sema YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/@supersemaofficial, along with the latest Super Sema animated special, “A Very Merry Bongolala.” Parents looking to help keep their kids busy, inspired, and learning over their holiday break can also download the latest seasonal STEAM activity kit on the Super Sema website at supersema.com.

Since its debut in 2021, Super Sema has taken the world by storm with three seasons of its hit YouTube Originals series, dozens of original songs, NAACP and Kidscreen Award nominations, toys, books, and STEAM activity kits. Developed as the first African superhero kids’ franchise targeted to Gen Alpha kids and their families, the team behind the franchise includes Oscar-winning and NYT bestselling children’s author Lupita Nyong’o, BAFTA winner Claudia Lloyd, Forbes 30 Under 30 CEO Lucrezia Bisignani, and several Walt Disney and YouTube Kids alumni.
