Media entrepreneur and filmmaker Mo Abudu has been honoured with the Reformers of Africa Arising Award at the Reformers Arise Summit.
Reformers Arise characterises a reformer as someone who is tired of the status quo and full of creative energy and passion.
As the first recipient of the award, Abudu was recognised for her numerous contributions to the media and television industry and also promoting African culture at both home and abroad.
Announcing the award on Instagram, Abudu said: “On Saturday June 1, I was pleasantly surprised with being the first recipient of the Reformers of Africa Arising Award at the Reformers Arise Summit. My dear friend Alero Ayida-Otobo had asked me to come and present an award, only to get there and be a recipient.
“The Summit defines a reformer as someone full of creative energy and passion, who wants to see change and are willing to be the instigator of that change. I will continue to do my best to live up to this objective.”
