MO ABUDU AT 55: The first time I photographed @moabudu was in 2002 .. I was working on a book with @ayonatrimnell on Amazing Nigerian women in their forties. She was driving the consulting firm Vick Laurence at the time .. I remember asking her if she was a model . I had never photographed anyone with a more beautiful bone structure and poreless skin.. she looked like she was in her 20s at best .
Then I saw something happen .. the excitement every time she Planted her ‘Dream Seed ‘..Aunty Mo had her eye on media. This drew me to her .. I also was also just at the beginning of my photography and music career trying to win at ventures that were unpopular at the time. So our journey began..
photo shoot after Photoshoot .. dream After dream ..EXECUTION after EXECUTION .I have watched her achieve the impossible. I have learnt so much from Her .. if Dreams stir up your passion then HARD WORK is the After glow .. and MO Abudu is glowing !.. it’s not even funny.
I stare at her and look at the seeds I’m also carrying .. sometimes so timidly ..I become less afraid .. I’m exactly where aunty Mo was when I first met her .. I’ve mastered the last 20 years and Its Time to launch out and evolve .I boldly sprinkle these seeds with wisdom and strength .. ITS A NEW DAY .. All hail the brown skin girl.. happy birthday aunty mo
