Mo Abudu is signing Major Deals ??! EbonyLife & Sony Pictures to develop 3 New TV Projects for International Distribution



EbonyLife Ltd, and Sony Pictures Television (SPT), today announced that they will co-develop three exciting new scripted TV projects, with SPT set to distribute internationally.

The three-project deal, the first of its kind between SPT and a Nigerian production company, will also include a TV series inspired by the Dahomey Warriors. The action-packed series, inspired by true events that took place in the West African Kingdom of Dahomey, will tell the empowering story of the all-female Warriors and show the ultimate strength of women coming together, fighting to protect and honour their people. Development on the Dahomey Warriors project will start immediately with further details of the two additional projects to follow.

The news follows EbonyLife’s recently announced unscripted deal with SPT, where they will be exclusively adapting the hit game show ‘The Dating Game’ for Nigerian audiences.

    Mo, a fifty plus year old woman who is bleaching her skin. Looking like a woman with a medical illness with her blotchy hands and ridiculous wig in her head. When will Nigerians get it together. Focus on more serious movies that don’t continue to reinforce the negative stereotypes Nigerians have. A country and people that don’t have their priorities in order. Do not compare this Mo to Oprah Winfrey. This woman is not even Clara to O’s stratosphere.

      Wow. Did you read the article at all or you decided you were going to go off on a rant anyway? If you did, you’d realise your point on serious movies and negative stereotypes is absolutely baseless as I don’t know what’s more serious than a TV series based on Female West African Warriors that actually existed. Also, medical illness, blotchy hands and a ridiculous wig as you put it all have absolutely nothing to do with this post or the achievement she has made with this new collaboration. Please, do and be better.

      TRUTH….. I tried to find an eloquent response to the nonsense you just wrote.
      I cant.

      You’re a donkey. You will remain a donkey. Unknown. Uncelebrated.


      Well done Mo Abudu. This is only the beginning.

    You can’t criticise her pr or marketing skills. Now will she have the long term vision to execute this properly and not kill it softly by trying to exploit the creative talent? If she hires good writers and directors, pay them well, this could be a win win for all! But if she hires low skilled folks because no one with any talent wants to work for her, they will mess this up royally and soon enough having to jump to the next pr strategy.

    Dissapoint me Mo, Dissapoint me. Please.

    Well done Mo. Congratulations.

    I just don’t understand why people like to bash this woman, did she steal something belonging to you? Anyway, the more she is hated on, the greater her exploits and success.

      Do we bash her or tell the truth about our experience of working with her. Another way of looking at this situation is to ask “why do people who work with her behind the scenes imply that her leadership skills is not kosher?” ? she is good at some things…..selling herself and ideas a d raising money or hype…. Managing and motivating people at all levels (other than billionaires she thinks she can get stuff from), her attitude stinks.

      You do not have to be nasty to get ahead. Infact you will go further, quicker when your team (at all levels) is rooting for you.
