Lagos, Nigeria – April 19, 2014
CNN has profiled Mo Abudu, Executive Chairman and CEO of EbonyLife TV and first black woman to own a pan-African TV channel, EbonyLife TV, as one of the continent’s leading women.

‘Mo’ as she is fondly called was interviewed on ‘Leading Women’ – a show that connects its audience to extraordinary women in the world – as a talk show host and media owner who presents the vision of a very different Africa. The show celebrates women at the top of their field, exploring their careers, lives and ideas.

With EbonyLife TV, Africa’s first Global Black Entertainment and lifestyle network, Mo has won acclaim for building a TV network creating 1,000 hours of fresh, engaging, original and premium home-grown programming yearly. And there are plans to unveil even more channels – all under the EbonyLife brand.

Calling her “Africa’s Oprah”, CNN notes that Mo Abudu’s greatest achievement and what makes her story remarkable is not just conquering African TV – but doing it without any prior media experience.

“There were many knock backs along the way, many people telling me ‘you can’t do these things,” said the British-born entrepreneur in an interview with CNN’s Stephanie Busari. “But I think what’s important in life is that you believe in yourself and the things you can do.”
