EbonyLife TV hosts successful Sisterhood Awards

Hundreds of women converged at Eko Hotel and Suites this week for the annual Women in Management, Business and Public Service (WimBiz) conference, to be empowered and inspired by outstanding speakers and role models.



 The climax of the 2-day event was the EbonyLife TV Sisterhood Awards, in special partnership with WimBiz for the second year. The awards recognises women who have made a significant contribution to their respective fields.



The Sisterhood Awards was launched in 2014, as part of the 50th birthday celebrations of Mo Abudu, founder and CEO of EbonyLife TV. She was glad to see so many women being recognized for breaking barriers and collaborating with each other at this year’s awards. “It was delightful to see women from diverse sectors being celebrated. I am hopeful that these awards will continue for many years, so that we can continue to encourage women who are working hard, achieving their dreams and uplifting the most vulnerable in our society,” she said.

One of the highlights of the evening was the special tribute to Joke Silva, the veteran actress of stage and screen, who is celebrating more than thirty years in the entertainment industry. In addition to the hardworking and inspiring women who received awards and nominations, there were crowd-pleasing performances by popular vocalist 9ice and Bisola of Big Brother Nigeria fame.



The awardees received their plaques from some of last year’s winners and women who have been celebrated for their achievements, such as outgoing chairperson of WimBiz Executive Council, Aishah Ahmad, celebrity designer Folake Coker of Tiffany Amber, pop sensation Yemi Alade, media personality Stephanie Coker-Aderinokun, film director Kemi Adetiba and founder of LEAP Africa, Ndidi Nwuneli.

Omoni Oboli What???? The Okafor law she was sued for? This award is a waste of time and a joke. The only woman I have respect for and really deserved the award is Sola David-Borha. Others to me were washy washy

WimBiz is an amazing organization, and I totally enjoyed the well thought out and executed conference. If only the women in attendance will learn and do.

I'm happy Toju won, StyleTemple was close behind but Og has a very nasty attitude! I hope the conference impacted on her

Mo Abudu wont celebrate her own and treats her nigerian staff like crap but is quick to celebrate others just so people see her for what she is not. Charity begins at home madam looter. Better return calabar’s N3bn.
