Mo Abudu to keynote at Content London

MoMo Abudu, CEO of EbonyLifeTV, and one of Africa’s most prolific producers, will keynote at Content London as drama in the region booms.

One of the most prolific producers in Africa, Abudu launched Nigerian broadcaster and producer EbonyLifeTV in 2013, producing over 1000 hours of original programming each year including projects; The Governor, Fifty, Sons of the Caliphate and Castle & Castle.

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, which will include coproduction of a TV series inspired by the Dahomey Warriors.

Abudu will outline her current and future scripted strategy for EbonyLifeTV and provide delegates with an insight into one of Africa’s prime drama creators.

Described by Forbes as “Africa’s most successful woman” Abudu was also listed in the Hollywood Reporter’s 25 most powerful women in global television in 2013 and 2017.
