CEO of EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu, John Boyega, Meghan Markle (Duchess of Sussex) and a host of others have made the list of the most influential and powerful black people in Britain.
The annual list, which is released to showcase and honour men and women of African and African-Caribbean heritage in Britain who are changing lives have a number of Nigerians making the list.
Considering his star power as an A-list actor in Hollywood, John Boyega’s involvement in Nollywood might be key to unlock the industry’s greatness.
This is not the first time Mo Abudu will be getting an international recognition as we can all recall that earlier in the year, she was honoured alongside Omotola Jalade Ekeinde by the Variety Magazine Awards.
Back in March 2018, the Federal Government of Nigeria congratulated Mo Abudu and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, for winning the Variety Magazine awards. According to the magazine, these women are among the top 50 doing extraordinary things on the worldwide stage. In a statement released on Sunday, March 11, 2018, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed described the women as iconic in the creative industry.
“Of more importance is the fact that these women’s achievements have transcended gender, nationality or race, placing them on the profound class of global, timeless achievers,” he said.
