Mo Abudu, CEO of EbonyLife Group, was named 2024 Businesswoman of the Year at the esteemed Forbes Africa Woman Awards, which took place on Friday, March 8th, International Women’s Day, at Emperor’s Palace in Johannesburg.

Forbes named Mo Abudu “Africa’s Most Successful Woman” in recognition of her outstanding leadership and professional accomplishments. EbonyLife Group, which includes EbonyLife Studios, EbonyLife Films, the EbonyLife Creative Academy, and EbonyLife Place, Nigeria’s first upscale entertainment destination, has grown into a major force in the entertainment sector under her direction.

EbonyLife Media has partnered with well-known companies including Sony, AMC Networks, Netflix, Starz, Lionsgate, BBC, Westbrook companies, and Will Packer Productions in an effort to increase her influence globally.

Mo Abudu’s collaboration with Idris Elba’s Green Door Pictures demonstrates her dedication to supporting diversity and talent in the media. By working together, they hope to promote talent from Africa and its diaspora and produce inclusive, varied content.

Mo Abudu acknowledged her thankfulness for her recent achievements by saying, “I am filled with gratitude as I share this amazing news with you! I received the esteemed 2024 BUSINESSWOMAN OF THE YEAR AWARD at the FORBES AFRICA WOMAN AWARDS last night in Johannesburg. Regarding Forbes Africa: Many thanks! It feels both humble and empowering to be recognized by you.

She went on to stress the value of African women’s perseverance and solidarity, attributing her accomplishments to her family, her EbonyLife team, and all the amazing women that motivate her.

Mo Abudu’s influence goes beyond the entertainment sector. She recently oversaw the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles’ ground-breaking “Echoes of Africa” series, which featured African film for the first time in the organization’s existence.

Her role as a distinguished judge for the Forbes 30 Under 30 selection committee, her appointment by the UK Government as Creatives Champion for the upcoming UK-African Investment Summit, and her work at the EbonyLife Creative Academy upskilling the next generation of filmmakers are all examples of her commitment to empowering the next generation of leaders.

Mo Abudu’s story inspires women everywhere by showing them that everything is possible to overcome if they have perseverance and desire. It’s obvious what she wants other women to know: “If you can think it, you can do it.” Let’s keep paving the way for future generations together.
