Mo Abudu Makes Hollywood Reporter’s 25 Most Powerful Women in Global Television List

   

Media entrepreneur, Mo Abudu has been listed in Hollywood Reporter’s 25 Most Powerful Women in Global Television.

The Hollywood Reporter is a multi-platform American digital and print magazine focusing on the Hollywood film industry, television, and entertainment industries, as well as Hollywood’s intersection with fashion, finance, law, technology, lifestyle, and politics.

According to the media organisation, the women “are rewriting the rules of how we watch TV during a time where “women have to work twice as hard for the same recognition” as men.”

Excited Mo shared the news on her Instagram page, describing the feature as an honour “to continue to fly the flag for Nigeria and the continent.”

Citing Mo’s achievements, The Hollywood Reporter said,

Abudu has been at the forefront of media innovation on the continent since transitioning from a career in human resources at oil giant Exxon Mobil to hosting a talk show to, in 2006, launching her own global network, EbonyLife TV (the largest pan-African network is available in about 50 countries).

Her media empire now extends to movies — in 2016, EbonyLife’s film division co-produced Nollywood rom-com The Wedding Party, which smashed local box-office records, taking in more than $1.3 million at the Nigerian box office. Her goal for the coming year: “To successfully produce Africa’s first sci-fi TV series.”
