‘Sex For Grades’ Journalist, Kiki Mordi Exposed By Colleagues Over Alleged Theft
Controversial Journalist, Kiki Mordi who was popular for her expose on lecturers who demand sex for grades in Africa is in the mud today over alleged theft of intellectual property.
This occurred on Twitter after she was given another honorary award of the Micheal Elliot award for African storytelling.
The award organizers put out a tweet congratulating Kiki on her Sex for grades Documentary and the tremendous impact it had on people.
While she was being congratulated, a fellow journalist known as Ruona Meyer quoted the congratulatory message with her expose on Kiki’s alleged theft. She asked Kiki to be decent enough to share the proceedings from this new recognition with a certain O.O who did the real work in ‘Sex For Grades’. Ruona 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 the honour and also hold themselves to account, not just the government.
“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 “
The lady in question, O.O -found to be a fellow journalist named Oge Obi- who Ruona claimed broke her back for the documentary had earlier shared a series of tweets in August, right after one of Kiki’s awards.
In these tweets, she ranted about how someone(assumed to be Kiki) was callous enough to take the glory for the hard work of others when in reality, her brain could not function at that level of intelligence.
