Actress Ruth Kadiri Calls out Lagos State Govt and Mo Abudu


Nollywood Actress and Filmaker Ruth Kadiri-Ezerika

 

Ruth Kadiri-Ezerika has accused Mo Abudu, the Lagos State Government, and others of “overlooking” her for an award at the Eko Star Film & TV Awards.

 

As part of the Eko Tourism, Art & Culture Series 2021, the Nigerian International Film Summit, in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture & Tourism and EbonyLife Place, organized the Eko Star Film & TV Awards, honouring talented female pioneers who call the shots in the growing Nigerian film industry.

 

Mo Abudu: Filmaker and CEO EbonyLife Place

 

 

A good number of Nigerian celebrities graced the event which held on April 12 in Victoria Island, Lagos.

 

A number of female celebrities won awards, including Nancy Isime, Kate Henshaw, Toyin Abraham, Osas Ighodaro, Omoni Oboli, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and more.

 

Ruth Kadiri did not receive any award and she took to Instagram to say her piece while tagging the organizers of the award event.

 

She said she wasn’t given any award, despite her efforts, because she doesn’t belong to any clique.

 

She wrote: “I am a film maker. I am a woman. I am a hardworking woman. I have faced the struggles every woman/filmmaker has faced. Did my name at any point pop up yes. But because I do not belong to a click (sic). Yet again I have been overlooked.

 

She added: “I will not be pressured. I will keep working hard. @lagosstategovt @moabudu @ijayonah @nifsummit thanks for overlooking me and congrats to everyone who got recognized. the film industry is controlled by women, so if you’re going to do it, do it right or don’t do it at all.”

 

Her post received support from some of her fellow actresses, including from Annie Idibia, Lepacious Bose, Didi Ekanem, Queen Wokoma and more.
