The year 2017 ended on a glorious note for Mo Abudu, the prominent media mogul and corporate amazon, just as 2018 began on a more glorious note for her. The CEO of EbonyLife TV was honoured at the Ali Baba’s January 1 Concert, held at Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Abudu was honoured as the first woman in Africa to launch a Pan Africa TV channel. The award was presented to her by Dame Abimbola Fashola, wife of former Lagos governor, and Mary Akpobome, the top bank executive and wife of Ali Baba.
Abudu looked beautiful in a piece from Lanre DaSilva Ajayi’s SS18 The Grand Royal Collection. She was accompanied to the event by the trio of Ruth Osime, Pat Faniran and Marian Omatsone.
It will be recalled that on Thursday, 7 December, 2017, the Governing Council of the Institute of Directors Nigeria (IoDN), awarded Abudu with the Fellowship Award of the Institute of Directors as well as the 2017 ‘IoD Entrepreneurial Award’.
