She is Mosunmola Abudu, but is popularly known as Mo Abudu. She has been described as “Oprah of Africa,” but I do not like allusions to Westerners when Africans are also making their own mark. She is Mo and she is a beautiful, smart (but of course) and fashionable media mogul. Forbes described her as “Africa’s Most Successful Woman.”
She was born on the 11th of September, 1964 in the United Kingdom and in July 2013, she launched Ebonylife Tv, an independent multi-broadcast entertainment network, the first African woman to do so. But before launching her TV/Film network, she hosted and produced her on television talk show, “Moments with Mo” for years.
She has also bankrolled movie productions, with her movies grossing big time at the box offices: the latest release being “The Wedding Party” which grossed hundreds or millions in the cinema. She has also backed the movie “Fifty” which starred Dakore Egbuson and others and it grossed N20million in a holiday weekend alone. She certainly has eyes for a winning script.
She was given an Honorary Doctorate Degree (Honouris Causa) by Babcock University.
Today, we crush on this amazing woman’s sense of style.
