More accolades for Mo Abudu
One of Africa’s most successful women and EbonyLife boss, Mo Abudu, has now been given a gold membership directors’ card by the International Academy of Television, Arts and Sciences, the platform responsible for staging the renowned Emmy Awards.
Mo announced in December last year that she was a member of a select group of 100 directors, international executives from leading channels, production and distribution companies, and the gold membership card certifies her as a member to attend board meetings three or four times a year.
“I am pleased about this appointment, because it will be an enabler for the recognition of our work in television and film across the globe. I mean “our,” as in our work from Nigeria,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
Mo’s membership means that the African content would be recognised and given ample consideration, even as her media empire, EbonyLife, has steadily gravitated towards indigenous content from its in-house, solitary productions to the international partnership with Sony.
This year’s Emmy Awards holds on September 22.
