Ebony Life TV, the new network that’s the brainchild of Mo Abudu will launch in a matter of weeks, according to sources at the Tinapa-based media company.
To be seen in over 40 African countries, courtesy of DSTV, Ebony Life will be driven by mainly entertainment and lifestyle programming, most of which are ready to air. The channel prides itself as ‘Africa’s first global black entertainment network’.
A launch event will hold here in Lagos next month, NET has been told by those who know. The network will first broadcast on DSTV, before extending to SKY in the UK, and DISH in the US.
A super ambitious venture, it is possible Ms. Abudu got some N2bn bank funding for the project, which is her most daring experiment yet in a career that’s seen her break grounds in human capital management, events and media.
