Nigerian media mogul, Mo Abudu becomes the first African to receive the Medailles d’ Honneur award at the Cannes Film Festival in France.

The CEO of Ebony Life Entertainment was honoured with the prestigious MIPTV Médailles d’Honneur which is an award awarded to senior executives who have, through their talent, leadership and passion, made a significant contribution to the world of television and the development of the international TV community.

MO Abudu was honoured alongside three others at the MIPTV 2019 Médailles d’Honneur cocktail awards ceremony which took place in Cannes, France, at the InterContinental Carlton Hotel. She was joined with some other Nigerians who came to celebrate with her, and one of those is Billionaire blogger, Dr Linda Ikeji.

In her profiling for the award, Mo Abudu who is the CEO of EbonyLife Media was described as a successful woman who has been ranked by Forbes as “Africa’s Most Successful Woman”. One of the most prolific producers in Africa, Abudu launched Nigerian broadcaster and producer EbonyLife TV in 2013, producing over 1,000 hours of original programming each year.

Abudu took the plunge into filmmaking, with the creation of EbonyLife Films. She is the Executive Producer of Fifty, the no.1 Nigerian film of 2015; The Wedding Party (2016), the most successful Nollywood film ever at the Nigerian box office; The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai (2017), the highest grossing Nollywood film of all time; and Chief Daddy (2018), the third-highest grossing Nigerian film.

In March 2018, Sony Pictures Television (SPT) announced a three-project deal with EbonyLifeTV, the first of its kind between SPT and a Nigerian television company
