Abudu

CEO

Abudu has turned Nigeria-based EbonyLife, the upscale international Black TV network she launched in 2013, into a multipronged media conglomerate that has produced more than 5,000 hours of original content, including the top-grossing Nigerian film of all time, 2016’s “The Wedding Party,” and multiple projects for Netflix (“Chief Daddy 2,” “Blood Sisters”). There’s also EbonyLife Space, an event facility in Lagos, and the government-supported film and TV school EbonyLife Creative Academy. She has projects in development with AMC (“Nigeria 2099”), Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s Westbrook Studios (“The Gods,” “Dada Safaries,” “Are We Getting Married?”) and Will Packer Productions (“The Fall of the Billionaire Gucci Master” at Universal). In February, EbonyLife signed a first-look TV deal with Sony Pictures Television.
