CEO, EbonyLife Media, Mo Abudu, has hinted at a possible partnership between her media outfit and the Lagos State Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture; a collaboration that would be geared towards making Lagos the cynosure of all eyes “as far as tourism destinations are concerned in Africa.”
Abudu revealed this when taking the Lagos State Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf, on a tour of EbonyLife’s multi-billion naira luxury lifestyle and entertainment centre in the heart of Victoria Island in Lagos last week.
“Because of EbonyLife’s commitment to quality and unique experiences, EbonyLife Place has become one of the city’s most popular facilities and a hub for the creative sector,” she said. “We’re excited about the opportunities to work with the Ministry to put a spotlight on Lagos as the foremost entertainment and tourism destination in Africa.”
During the tour, the commissioner also shared her aspirations and dreams for the ministry with a focus on creative tourism, stating that as part of the state’s ‘Greater Lagos’ goal, she is fully committed to making Lagos a top destination on the African continent to live, work and invest in.
Akinbile-Yussuf congratulated Ms. Abudu on building the multi-purpose facility, providing employment opportunities and ensuring that “the authenticity of Lagos culture is a mainstay at EbonyLife Place.”
Abudu’s EbonyLife Place which was commissioned by Governor Babajide Sanwoolu last December boasts of cinema halls, a 20-room boutique hotel; lounge and restaurants as well as a television studio and offices.
EbonyLife is behind successful productions like Fifty, The Wedding Party, which is Nollywood’s highest-grossing film of all times; Chief Daddy and His Excellency among others.
