“Hushpuppi of Journalism” – Kiki Mordi Dragged for Taking Full Credit for BBC “Sex-for-Grade” Documentary

Published

Sex-for-grade Journalist, Kiki Mordi has been dragged in the mud on social media for taking credit for the BBC documentary, which brought her to the limelight and refusing to acknowledge the original journalist, who pitched the idea.

The award-winning journalist’s name has been trending on micro-blogging platform, Twitter, for hours after a fellow journalist called her out for being a journalism fraud.

 

The journalist, identified as Ruona J. Meyer, was provoked when Kiki was honored with the 2020 Michael Elliott Award for African Storytelling on Wednesday, December 11.

According to her, Kiki Mordi was not the brain behind the “Sex for Grade” documentary and has been the only one getting all the recognition and grants awarded for the work.

Ruona in a series of tweet wrote,

Kiki, make sure this time you at least share whatever prize money there is with O.O and acknowledge her – given this was all her story as pitched, sourced/started. Real journalists have honour and also hold themselves to account, not just the government. #TruthIsSacrosanct

O.O a fellow female journalist did not get a fair deal, and you remain complicit and a beneficiary of that. The facts, complaints, responses and even her thread are there.

Better make it right because journalism can’t insist on ethics & fairness from others, yet cheat within.
For any bright sparks, I was in that newsroom when N.O and O.O pitched that story, so don’t try me today… I suggest you try Jesus instead. He is a better option.
#RealJournosHaveHonour

 

 

Another writer, Harri Obi, confirming Ruona’s allegations stated that the documentary was pitched and conceptualized by one Oge Obi.

According to her, Kiki’s only job was to narrate the story but after she became famous for the work, she refused to share the international grants worth millions she has won with her colleagues.

Reacting to the allegations, Kiki said Ruona is a mad woman and people shouldn’t take her bait. See her tweets below,
