Kiki Mordi was accused of winning an international award with a stolen story, “S3x For Grades.”

Kiki Mordi was accused of winning an international award with a stolen story, “S3x For Grades.”

A Nigerian Journalist, officially known as Kiki Mordi, has been accused of stealing someone else’s story, “S3x For Grades,” and winning an international award with it.

It all started after the International Center for Journalists, ICFJ, announced Kiki Mordi as the winner of the 2020 Michael Elliot Award for African Storytelling.

Kiki, a co-founder of Feminist_Co, was rewarded for uncovering sexual harassment in Nigerian universities with a documentary she produced from an allegedly stolen “S3x For Grades” story.

ICFJ tweeted, “With the Elliott family & @ONECampaign, we’re thrilled to present Nigerian journalist Kiki Mordi (@kikimordi) the 2020 Michael Elliott Award for African Storytelling. Her documentary uncovered s3xual harassment at universities and had a tremendous impact.”

According to a fellow Journalist, Ruona, identified with the handle @RGAMeyer, the famous” “S3x For Grades story was originally written by someone she called “O.O.”

She emphatically noted that it would be unfair if Kiki refused to acknowledge and share whatever prize money accrued to the award with the said “O.O” whose intellectual property she “stole” and won international recognition.

She 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 honor and also hold themselves to account, not just the government. #TruthIsSacrosanc”
