At order to develop her filmmaking skills, Mo Abudu enrolled in the London Film School in 2017 and successfully completed a directing course. She is prepared to use the knowledge and experience.

Taking to her Instagram page she dropped a lengthy note, she wrote;

Hello beautiful people ❤️❤️❤️

As many of you know, I went to the London Film School in 2017 and I did the Directors course. I thoroughly enjoyed it and decided at the end of the course that at God’s appointed time I would direct 🙏🏾

Directing is an art form that takes years to master, so I’m beginning with baby steps and we started shoot today 💪🏿💪🏿💪🏿

I have written two short films that I will be directing – HER PERFECT LIFE and IYAWO MI (My Wife), a predominantly Yoruba language film.

Although these stories are fictional, they highlight the mental health challenges, hardly spoken about in Nigerian society.

Her Perfect Life
Onajite Johnson-Ibrahim, 39, seems to have the perfect life , so why does she want to end it all?

Iyawo Mi (My Wife)
Kunle arrives home one night to find a horror awaiting him. His wife, Eniola, seems to have gone mad; hallucinating. Kunle takes matters into his own hands, with tragic consequences.

Her Perfect Life stars Pearl Thusi and Joseph Benjamin, supported by Omawunmi Dada, Uzo Osimpka, Christian Paul and Mary Lazarus. The cast of Iyawo Mi (My Wife) includes Adedimeji Lateef, Bolaji Ogunmola, Segun Arinze and Jude Chukwuka.
