Kids’ Edutainment During Lockdown
During lockdown, many parents were faced with the challenge of having to keep their kids entertained, educated and happy whilst spending prolonged periods of time at home. At the time, no one knew how long the lockdown would last. Schools and businesses were closed, leaving many families able to spend far more quality time together, and parents to bond more with kids. For many families, the challenge became balancing screen time and educational learning for children, whilst faced with limited forms of entertainment throughout the day.
The Creation of Vince and Zyana
After spending much time paying attention to what his (then 4-year-old) twins, Vincent and Zyana, were watching online, Kam Enenmoh discovered a special interest in creating videos about their everyday lives and adventures in Lagos, Nigeria, where their family currently resides. Born to a Filipino American mom and Nigerian dad, the twins both have rich, eclectic personalities, which adds to the intriguing dynamic of the videos. During lockdown, the twins had to explore different forms of edutainment, providing inspiration for what has now developed into the series, entitled Vince and Zyana.
Most of Kam’s professional experience was in oil and gas trading, however, when lockdown hit, business was completely closed. With a Finance degree from Michigan State University and MBA from Texas Southern University, Kam never imagined he would enter the lucrative world of social media until he saw the influence of online edutainment on his kids during lockdown. Most episodes of Vince and Zyana are relatively short in length – between 2- and 6-minutes long, as compared to an average 20-minute-long TV show – making them ideal for young kids who find it difficult to focus for long stretches of time. The action-packed videos feature kid-friendly special effects, sound effects and a green screen, intertwining innovative technology into the storyline, which also include basic educational knowledge on subjects like the alphabet, colours, different kinds of fruits, and animals.
Cast of Vince and Zyana
The main characters of Vince and Zyana are of course, the twins, who are now 6-years-old, and both have their own individual quirks and personalities. Witty, artistic Zyana loves analysing events and situations, leading to a host of hilarious facial expressions and reactions. She loves to dance, loves arts and crafts, and pranking the whole family whilst at it. Basketball-loving Vincent enjoys playing sports and his all-time favourite basketball superstar is Brooklyn Nets pro player, Kevin Durant. He enjoys singing and is a natural-born leader.
Vincent and Zyana’s nanny, Nimfa, also features regularly in the episodes. Originally from San Diego, Kam’s wife has appeared once or twice on the show, but prefers helping out behind the scenes, rather than being in front of the camera. They also have a 1-year-old baby boy, named Christian.
Travels Across San Diego and Las Vegas
During their global travels, the series follows the children around the world as they visit different places and try out exciting, educational activities. Viewers will journey alongside their travels to San Diego, where the kids visited places such as LegoLand; Sweetwater Bike Park; the Maritime Museum; USS Midway Museum; Carlsbad Pumpkin Patch; Grape Park; and Birch Aquarium. Hop on board towards Santa Monica Pier, then Las Vegas, featuring M&M World and Hershey World, as well as a huge indoor playground.
Their First Dubai Experience
Other Vince and Zyana episodes feature their very first journey to Dubai this past Christmas, with every day including a brand-new kid-focused activity. These include visiting the world’s largest mall; the Dubai Marina; Atlantic Aquaventure; Lost Chambers Aquarium; LegoLand Water Park; a Desert Safari Cruise; Indoor Skydiving at IFLY Dubai; Museum of Illusions; Glow Park; Dinosaur Park; 3D Museum; Butterfly Garden; Miracle Garden; Ski Dubai and Jumeirah Beach. The episodes shot during their travels tend to be unscripted and based on the kids’ daily lives as they learn about the world and new forms of exciting entertainment.
