We reported back in February that EbonyLife TV founder and CEO Mo Abudu had been given a gold membership directors’ card by the International Academy of Television, Arts & Sciences, the platform responsible for staging the renowned Emmy Awards. Abudu announced in December last year that she was a now a member of a select group of 100 directors, international executives from leading channels, production and distribution companies. Now, in another positive development, the award body recently announced Abudu as Chair of its 47th gala

The International Emmy Awards is scheduled to hold on November 25 in New York, and the nominees list will be announced in September. Awards will be presented in categories like Best Performance by an Actor/Actress, Comedy, Documentary, Drama Series, TV Movie/Mini-Series and while we wait for the announcement of the nominees, it’s incredible how Abudu is steadily positioning Africa on the global stage.
