In her words:
Good morning beautiful people ❤️❤️❤️Please always remember “if you can think it – you can do it”I decided in 2005 after turning 40, nearly 20 years ago, that I was going to dedicate my life to telling our stories. I had no clear direction on the HOW I was going to do it. But I knew that because I could THINK it, what was left was the HOW.It’s the HOW that has brought us this far and it’s been nearly 20 years of a journey that is never ending, because now the TEAM and I keep enlarging our THINKING and we keep DOING.So when you wake up on a Sunday morning nearly 20 years later and one of the world’s most authoritative newspapers, The New York Times dedicates a whole page to you in good old fashioned print 😊😊, for the world to see with a headline that reads the below you smile and give GOD all the glory 😊🙏🏾🤔NIGERIAN MOGUL PLANS TO SELL AFRICA TO THE WORLDThe validity of our plans to sell Africa to the world is based on all the various partnerships and co production deals with our international partners. They include our multiple – title deal with NETFLIX, our 3 Scripted deal with SONY, our First look deal with SONY, our writers initiative deal with SONY, our deal with AMC, Will & Jada’s WESTBROOK STUDIOS, WILL PACKER PRODUCTIONS & UNIVERSAL PICTURES amongst several others yet to be announced, but all SIGNED. So please look forward to more announcements🙏🏾 On our last count, we had about 30 projects in development. So we are serious about SELLING AFRICA TO THE WORLD 😊This article has been a year in the making, being fact checked at every point. It’s not an advertisement, it’s not an advertorial. It’s simply an authoritative journalistic endeavor.To everyone reading this post, please note that, “if you can think it, you can do it” – but it is going to take having a clear vision, being laser focused to the point of obsession with that vision and the roll out and execution of that vision.To the EbonyLife Team, let’s keep doing what we do best – WORK. Love you all so much and thank you all ❤️❤️❤️Please scroll to see our NYT article in print 🙏🏾❤️🙏🏾#AwesomeGod#NewYorkTimes#EbonyLifeStudioS
