LBW 031: Meet Bola Atta, Director of Corporate Communications at UBA and Ladybrille Woman of the Month November 2015

Bola Atta, the recipient of many awards and recognitions for  her numerous achievements in business and leadership on the African continent, is currently the Director for Marketing and Corporate Communications at the United Bank for Africa (UBA), overseeing 18 countries across the continent. Prior to UBA, and in 2001 while working for M-Net (Electronic Media Network) West Africa (as a Program Manager) she proposed to the network’s executives  that a channel be dedicated solely to the broadcast of African movies – specifically Nollywood movies. Atta worked on the concept, development and programming of this channel which was successfully launched in 2003. Today, the channel ‘The Africa Magic’ is the most watched channel on the African continent. In 2004, Atta made a dent in the entertainment and media sector with her subsequent position as Editor-in-Chief for True Love West Africa Magazine, a first of its kind in West Africa. In 2005, her achievements and accomplishments earned her a position as director of one of the largest publishing conglomerates in Africa (Media24Nigeria).
