The second season of business magazine Forbes Africa’s flagship TV show My Worst Day with Peace Hyde will premiere in May.
Produced in partnership with automotive company GAC Motors, the show will air exclusively on CNBC Africa, on channel 410 of MultiChoice-owned pay TV platform DStv.
The show, which profiled numerous African business moguls including Aliko Dangote and Folorunsho Alakija in its first season in 2016, is hosted by Forbes Africa’s correspondent and head of digital media and partnerships Peace Hyde.
It sees leading African business moguls and billionaires reveal their most challenging day in business in an interview format.
“The Forbes Africa brand is renowned for its quality and prestige and we believe the partnership with GAC sits well with the brand,” said Frederic Vandevyver, executive director at CNBC Africa and Forbes Africa.
“These are the types of people you do not hear from on a daily basis and for one programme to be able to pull them together at the same time is a feat worth celebrating.”
Mosunmola Abudu, CEO of EbonyLife TV & Films, was honoured at the 2017 Institute of Directors Nigeria (IoDN) annual dinner and dance this month, reports Gabriella Opara.
The governing council of the IoDN bestowed Abudu with an IoDN Fellowship Award and Entrepreneurial Award at the event on December 6, the first time the institute has presented two awards to one person.
On receiving the awards, Abudu said: “It is indeed an honour to be part of an elite group of business innovators and game-changers.
“Tonight we celebrate entrepreneurs, the backbone of our economic prosperity and growth. When we started EbonyLife TV & Films, it was our goal to inspire the next generation of visionaries and this honour is a testament that you can achieve your goals with resilience, a positive outlook and a can-do attitude.”
The IoDN Entrepreneurial Award is given to entrepreneurs who have shown great potential, excellent business acumen and leadership prowess, attaining acclaimed success both locally and internationally over the years.
Other awardees at the exclusive event were Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra state, and Aliko Dangote.
The award was presented to Abudu on the eve of the premiere of The Wedding Party 2, a movie coproduced by EbonyLife Films.
