Women in Entertainment Power Breakfast at Fame Week Africa 2023 aims to bring together Africa’s top women in the entertainment industry

Cape Town – 28 August 2023 – The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) is honoured to host the Women in Entertainment (WIE) Power Breakfast next week (5 September).

The highly anticipated breakfast sets to illuminate female African talent at FAME Week Africa 2023. FAME Week Africa, built by RX Africa, brings together African and global creative professionals, through events that focus on film, television, animation as well as music and entertainment technology.

This year’s breakfast, which takes place during FAME Week Africa 2023, will shine a light on the amazing contributions made by women on the continent in the entertainment industry.

The event will see the establishment of a “forum that will champion the cause of women in various aspects of entertainment, from film and television to music”.

CTICC CEO Taubie Motlhabane said: “At the CTICC, we believe in the power of women in driving change and innovation. We are honoured to be part of the WIE Power Breakfast, as it aligns perfectly with our commitment to fostering an inclusive and diverse industry.”

The breakfast will offer a supportive environment for women to network, learn from each other, and gain valuable insights for industry leaders.

The keynote address is set to be delivered by Mo Abudu, who has been described by Forbes as one of “Africa’s most successful woman”.

Abudu, a Nigerian media mogul and philanthropist, has been listed by the Hollywood Reporter as one of the “25 most powerful women in global television”.

In her quest to change the world’s perception of Africa, she has been instrumental in reshaping the African narrative on a global scale.

Martin Hiller, Portfolio Director of FAME Week Africa said: “The Women in Entertainment Power Breakfast is a crucial milestone for FAME Week Africa. By celebrating and elevating the incredible talent of women in the industry, we are forging a path towards a more equitable and vibrant future for African entertainment.”

The CTICC has always been an advocate for women’s empowerment and is proud to be a venue sponsor for what is set to be a ground-breaking event.
