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.
