Good morning beautiful people. What an honor!???? I just received my gold membership directors card of the International Academy of Television, Arts & Sciences, the organization responsible for staging the world famous International Emmy Awards. We will continue to change the narrative and get our stories told. ?. #AwesomeGod #GreatTimesAhead #Emmys
And the gold membership card has certified her as a member. Furthermore, she’s expected to attend board meetings three or four times a year. “I am pleased about this appointment because it will be an enabler for the recognition of our work in TV and film across the globe. And I mean “our” as in our work from Nigeria,” Abudu wrote in an Instagram post.
The ramifications of Abudu’s membership means African content will be recognised and given ample consideration; her media empire EbonyLife has steadily gravitated towards indigenous content, from its in-house, solitary productions to the international partnership with Sony. The 2019 Emmy Awards will hold on September 22, 2019.
