Mo Abudu Joins Board Of International Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences



Having been described by Forbes as Africa’s most successful woman, Mo Abudu is certainly living up to her reputation. Just two months after her feature on the 2019 Powerlist, she has been elected director of International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

The Academy, responsible for the annual International Emmy Awards, is comprised of leading entertainment figures from around the world. As a member of the board, Abudu joins a select group of about 100 directors, who lead major entertainment companies.

As the first African woman to own a Pan-African TV Channel, EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu is undoubtedly deserving of this position. Even since she expanded EbonyLife TV into EbonyLife Films, Mo Abudu has enjoyed five consecutive number on films, from Fifty to Chief Daddy.

Sharing the good news of her selection, she said on Instagram:

“I am pleased about this appointment because it will be an enabler for the recognition of our work in TV and film across the globe. And I mean “Our” as in our work from Nigeria.”

The media mogul plans to use it as an opportunity to change the narrative of Africa that has pervaded the global media, by promoting our stories told by our people to one of the most prestigious entertainment academies in the world.
