A Nigerian journalist has been called out for cheating her colleagues over a creative work they produced together.
Nigerian investigative journalist, Kiki Mordi has been called out for cheating and taking credit of a creative work which wasn't her sole idea.
She was called out by fellow invesitgative journalist, Ruona J. Meyer on Twitter for cheating her colleagues who they worked together on documentary, Sex For Grades.
Sex for Grades was published by the BBC Africa Eye in the year 2019, and Kiki Mordi has since gotten numerous awards and recognitions for it.
Ruona J. Meyer has now taken to Twitter to claim that the documentary was not actually Kiki Mordi’s idea.
In a series of social media posts, she alleged that O.O actually pitched the story, yet Kiki has failed to share whatever money she got as a return with her.
See her claims below;
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.
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.
