Nigeria media mogul Mo Abudu has been honoured with MIPTV Médailles D’Honneur in a glamorous ceremony that took place in Cannes Monday night.
She is the first African to be so honoured by the The International Market for Content Development and Distribution (MIPTV).
An excited Mo took to Instagram to share the moments with fans, writing:
“Camille Bidermann, Executive Director of the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, presented me with my award last night.
“Thank you so much Camille for your words of inspiration. Much love ??? ___
“A major part of my acceptance speech was dedicated to the creative business leaders in the room and the need for a partnership between our respective continent so that our stories can be told with authenticity and produced to the best international standards.
“If these stories are told from both our perspectives there is a captive audience on both sides of the Atlantic waiting to be entertained as never before and with creative business leaders adding significantly to their bottom line!”
The MIPTP Médailles D’Honneur are awarded to senior executives who have, through their talent, leadership and passion, made a significant contribution to the world of television and the development of the international TV community.
Abudu received the award alongside Ilene Chaiken, Writer, Showrunner and Producer (USA), Stéphane Courbit, Chairman, Banijay Group (France) and Jane Millichip, Managing Director, Sky Vision (United Kingdom).
