Drogba in Chinese cartoon



p>A cartoon on Ivory Coast top striker Didier Drogba will be premiered on December 1 in Abidjan in the presence of the Shanghai Shenhua player, organisers said on Wednesday.

The film, title “De Tito à Drogba” (from Tito to Drogba), traces the path of the former Chelsea talisman from his childhood to his moments of glory as a footballer.

It was written, directed and produced by Ivorian Guehi Bao Gabin and Frenchman Pierre Sauvalle, who both say is homage to the Elephants captain, which will also serve as an educational tool to raise awareness about HIV- Aids, the proliferation of weapons, violence against women and child soldiers.

Drogba was appointed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as a Goodwill Ambassador in 2007. He also played important roles in ending Ivory Coast’s numerous armed conflicts, and is currently a member of a reconciliation commission in the West African nation.
