A. WHO IS PEDA?
Peda is a multimedia servicing company and a content creating company. It specializes
in Animation, brand development / consulting, creating Afrocentric or African oriented content.
We help our clients bring their ideas to life.
B. WHAT'S THE INFLUENCE BEHIND THE NAME PEDA?
Peda was formerly Peter, Eddie, Dare and Ayo, all the first letters of these names forming PEDA studio, but we had a fallen out and it became Peter Daniel in co-incidence of course. I didn't plan that, It was actually a female friend of mine that noticed the initials looked like my name. PEDA now became Peter Daniel STUDIO. I wouldn't really like fans to see it as Peter Daniel though...all I want is for the fans to see PEDA as a quality storytelling company.
C. WHAT'S YOUR NICHE AS A CREATIVE? AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT IT?
My niche as a creative is just being a creative, meaning creating anything, being open to infinite possibilities as a concept itself is breathtaking.
It comes naturally like a gift from God. Well I have been in the creative world for about 10 years now building PEDA's cliental and creating African brands that will stand the test of time, help breed a new generation of African self esteem and help give a sense of pride and belonging. In a nut shell I have
been a creative person right from childhood...you know illustrating and imagining all sorts of things that don't exist and trying to bring them to this reality.
D. DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT THAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY WORKING ON?
Yes we have many project we are working on, From our own brands to clients brands. On our brand we are building The Mlezi Universe, a Universe of
African Guardians and super heroes with a couple of extra unique character driven titles for mass appeal. Also we are working on the animation for these brands.
The Mlezi Universe is the offshoot of "Chronicles of the Newborn rise of the Mlezi" which we had a successful kickstarter for the volume 1 graphic novel back in 2016.
We about to conclude the volume2 of the "Chronicles of the Newborn rise of the Mlezi". This will soon be available for consumption.
E. WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE COMIC-BOOK CHARACTER AND WHY?
I don't have a favorite character, I just love creativity and ART, I purchase stories, comics for personal consumption from any or different brands e.t.c Marvel, DC, Epoch, Comic Republic, Image, Dark Horse, and so on...
F. WHAT INSPIRES YOU/YOUR WORK?
Everything inspires me, existence itself does a lot for my imagination. But I drive a lot of energy from Africa to tell
my stories because of its untold beauty. The universe it self has an endless field of craftivity (as we like to call it) which is craft and creativity in one LOL!
