Jan 9, 2015 – Nigerian Woman, Mo Abudu Founder Of Ebony Life TV Is Forbes Most Successful Woman In Africa

Mo Abudu, executive chairman and CEO of Ebony Life TV, Africa’s first global black entertainment and lifestyle network, has been announced by Forbes as Africa’s Most Successful Woman of The Year.

Abudu joins other notable African women who have been listed in the past. They are Divine Ndhlukula, Founder and Managing Director of SECURICO, one of Zimbabwe’s largest security companies, and Khanyi Dhlomo, a 36- year-old South African media mogul, unconventional visionary, and a builder of big dreams.

Mo, who has been described by international news outlets as ‘Africa’s Africa’, said she is keen in her resolve to rewrite Africa’s story.

In a recent interview with Forbes, she recounted her entrepreneurial journey and reflected on the lessons she has learned along the way.

Speaking on her entrepreneurial journey and lessons she has learned along the way, Mo said: “This kind of afro-pessimism simply fuelled a burning, deep-seated desire in my subconscious to one day help to rewrite the African story; to get people to talk about the issues that affect our society and to tell the African narrative in a contemporary and interesting way; to change the perception the world had of us; to let the world know that in spite of our challenges as a developing continent, Africans are not a bunch of savages but mostly a breed of gifted and remarkable people.”

Mo was also recently honoured with a Doctorate degree by Babcock University.
