Get To Know More About….Mona Scott-Young


September 25th, 2014



You might know of her as the main forces behind VH1’s hit docu-series franchise Love & Hip Hop but do you really know Mona Scott-Young?

Well, this CEO of multi-faceted boutique entertainment company Monami Entertainment does a lot! Besides basically running Monday nights on VH1, Scott-Young is a wife and mother of two. According to Monami Entertainment’s official site, Mona’s intense passion for all that she does effortlessly manifests itself in her many accomplishments. Mona’s business and philanthropic achievements have garnered recognition from a variety of prestigious organizations, including “Marketer of the Year” by Ad Age. She currently serves on the board of The Haitian Roundtable, The RSQ Foundation and The GrassROOTS Foundation.

In addition, Scott-Young & Monami Entertainment manages artists and one of them is the amazingly talented Missy Elliott. Also, a 20-year-old artist named Destiny Moriah is also part of Monami Entertainment and with them behind her, I’m sure we’ll be hearing from Moriah pretty soon!

Besides Love & Hip Hop (also called Love & Hip Hop: New York), Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, and Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, Scott-Young is the creative forces behind other series, such as current VH1 programs This Is Hot 97 and Chrissy & Mr. Jones, as well as past programs like VH1’s The Gossip Game and Bravo’s The New Atlanta.

While Scott-Young has endured a lot of controversy for the way women of color are portrayed on her docu-series, I believe that she is just magnificent. While she has accomplished a lot, I believe that Scott-Young is building an empire that will take over the entertainment world. The Love & Hip Hop franchise just added Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood to their franchise and I am sure that Scott-Young wants to add more. Just like Bravo’s the Real Housewives franchise, I can see Love & Hip Hop branching out to other locations, such as Houston and possibly Miami, which I know they tried to cast before but I believe it can work with the right cast. Scott-Young is on her way to making her name known world wide and if you do not know who she is, you will soon enough!
