Mo Abudu’s 50th birthday celebration was one of the biggest events that have happened this year.
EbonyLife TV founder and ‘Moments with Mo’ host, Mo Abudu owned the whole day with an early morning church service and then an intimate brunch for family and friends. After this she stepped things up with the extravagant soiree held at Oriental Hotel, Lagos.
Mo used the opportunity of her birthday to also recognize hard-working and impactful women in Nigeria through the Sisterhood Awards.
The night was filled with jokes form host Basketmouth, dancing from several performances -from Tiwa Savage, Waje, Chidinma, Iyanya, Efya, Nikki Laoye, Chee and many more – as well as gorgeous décor with amazing food.
