Ruth Kadiri called out Ebonylife TV chairperson, Mo Abudu alongside EKO Star Films as well as other TV organizers for snubbing her work at a recently concluded award show.
The actress stated that she works hard and she deserves to be recognized for her effort in the entertainment business.
Ruth Kadiri took to Instagram on Tuesday, April 13 to accuse the organizers including Mo Abudu; Ijeoma Obioha-Onah as well as the Lagos State Ministry of Tourism of overlooking her years of work in the industry.
She also alleged that her name came up during the jury’s decision-making process but was overlooked because she did not belong to a clique.
“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”, Kadiri wrote.
The award ceremony held on Monday, April 12; and also honoured female film influencers involved in different areas of filmmaking. Some of the awardees include Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde; Funke Akindele; Emem Isong Emodi; Omoni Oboli; Toyin Abraham; Sola Sobowale; Mimi Bartels; Zulumoke Oyibo; Joy Odiete; Collette Otusheso; as well as Tosin Dokpesi.
