It’s International Women’s Day 2020 – a time to celebrate women across the world and of all shapes and sizes. The idea is to give a historically marginalised gender it’s time to be celebrated without the holds of patriarchy and toxic masculinity.
On a day like this, media is a bed for different types of content. But today, the entertainment desk at Pulse Nigeria has decided to spotlight 10 of the most powerful women in the Nigeria entertainment industry. The concept of power can be fickle and its image has been tainted with the political definition of ‘power.’
In a real sense, power can also be positive and markedly influential on people. This kind of power does not necessarily have to be flexed before one understands its existence. For these eminent women, the power came for some by reputation, for some by success and for others, by their vision to elevate an industry.
Based on what their influence represents and with what their standing is in their respective industry, Pulse Nigeria spotlights the following women;
Industry: Mass Media/Film
If this list was ranked, Mo Abudu would be top of it. After a stint in the corporate world, Mo’s journey in the media started with Moments with Mo in 2006 and 24 years later, she calls the shot in Entertainment media in Nigeria and Africa.
At the very top of her successful ventures is the Ebony Life TV which has become one of the most important television networks in Africa.
And it’s not just TV, with her Ebony Life Films imprint, Mo has produced some of the biggest Nollywood movies in recent years like Wedding Party 1&2, Chief Daddy, Your Excellency and so forth.
