For a few days now, reports have surfaced on social media that  Biola Alabi has resigned as M-Net Africa‘s Managing Director.

The story went viral days before the 2nd edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards set to take place on Saturday 8th March 2014.

BellaNaija Movies & TV followed up on the story with representatives at the company and they immediately sent us a reply.

Read the statement sent exclusively to BN;

M-Net wishes to confirm the strategic evolution of M-Net Africa MD Biola Alabi’s role with the pan African broadcaster.

    Hmm in Fortune 500 companies being assigned to “Special Projects” typically means they are giving your some time to find another job. Sad if this is indeed the case.

    LOL. “asgrl” you are so right! Special projects typically means you are fired but with grace period. Meaning you’re no longer adding value to the company.

    This might explain why there hasn’t been much press to the upcoming award. Hope its a success tomorrow. I mean last year the campaign was HUGE and press was done miles into the future.

      Not necessary fired. It could mean you are due for rotation (you’ve been in your current role too long). Because you’ve been good to the company, they are giving you time to find something else within the company cos they don’t want to lose you.

      At least that’s how it works in my company.
