Popular Nigerian filmmaker, producer and CEO, Ebony Life  has announced  a new phase of her career as a film director.

The filmmaker said in a statement that she would be directing two short films this month and would oversee the whole filmmaking process for the very first time.



Mo Abudu described her debut as a director as one of her dreams come true noting that since her first full-length feature, Fifty, in 2015, she has guided the storytelling process as an executive producer and visionary, but always sought experienced directors to steer each project.

Prior to her directorial debut, the moviemaker had, in 2017, completed the course in directing in London Film School with the aim of improving her filmmaking skills.

About the new films, Mo Abudu said, “I believe in learning and understanding any major assignment I undertake. Directing is an art form that takes years to master, so I am beginning with baby steps. I have written two short films that I will be directing – Her Perfect Life and Iyawo Mi (My Wife), a predominantly Yoruba language film.


“Although these stories are fictional, they highlight the mental health challenges, hardly spoken about in Nigerian society, that many people deal with all over the world. Mental health issues can affect anyone, regardless of age, race, income or social class, and they are on the increase.”

Nollywood actors like Adedimeji Lateef, Bolaji Ogunmola, Segun Arinze, Pearl Thusi, Joseph Benjamin, Omowunmi Dada, Uzo Osimpka, Christian Paul, Mary Lazarus, Jude Chukwuka, among others would feature in her new movie projects.
