Forbes Names Mo Abudu, Okonjo-Iweala Among World’s 100 Most Powerful Women

Mo Abudu has been named the 98th most powerful woman in the world.

The Ebonylife CEO was named on Forbes’ annual 100 Most Powerful Women In The World list which was released on Wednesday, December 8.

The list features names of powerful women drawn from diverse backgrounds including musicians, politicians, athletes, etc.

MacKenzie Scott is listed at No.1  for her philanthropic work. Vice President Kamala Harris nabbed the No. 2 spot, with France’s Christine Lagarde, the first woman to lead the European Central Bank, taking the No. 3.

WTO DG, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala occupies the 91st position.

In her reaction, Mo Abudu wrote via her Instagram page:

Good morning beautiful people 

I woke up yesterday to the incredible news that I have been included on the annual list of THE FORBES 100 MOST POWERFUL WOMEN IN THE WORLD at no. 98.

Forbes released its 18th annual list on the 7th of December, 2021 – reported by Nicolette Jones and Erika Burho. Edited by Moira Forbes and Maggie McGrath.

I’m humbled and deeply grateful to be amongst some of the world’s most amazing women, including MacKenzie Scott (no. 1), a novelist, philanthropist and the third-wealthiest woman in the USA, and Christine Lagarde (no. 3), President of the European Central Bank.

Women of colour on the list include US Vice-President Kamala Harris (no. 2,) and Oprah Winfrey, making her umpteenth appearance on this list. 

There are only three African women on the list: Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Director-General of the WTO (no. 91), Samia Suluhu Hassan, the current President of Tanzania (no. 94),

And yours truly. I quote Forbes – “Nigerian media mogul Mo Abudu is one of the most powerful women in global media”

A dear friend said to me today when she heard about this news “imagine if your child self could have known where you were heading”

Again, I didn’t see it coming. Just thanking God for these global opportunities and doing our very best to keep growing The EBONYLIFE brand around the world and creating first class opportunities and value for every single stakeholder we partner with and work with.

My wish is that there will be many more of my deserving African sisters on this list in the years to come.
