Popular sex for grade journalist, Kiki Mordi has been accused of sleeping to BBC staff to get her role in the popular Sex-for-grade documentary.
This is coming after her former colleague called her out for erasing her name and not giving her any credit.
The Charming Magazine recalls that in 2019, Mordi and her BBC Africa Eye team had released a 13-minute documentary that exposed sexual harassment of students by lecturers at the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana.
The journalist had gained prominence in the global media landscape since the documentary, snagging a plethora of awards.
Ruona Meyer, a fellow journalist, however, called out Mordi on Thursday for allegedly taking credits for the 2019 investigation despite the fact that the project was not inspired by her.
However, Kiki Mordi addressed those claims and and shared her own side of the story.
This didn’t go down well with her accuser, Oge Obi, who further revealed that Kiki slept with “people at the top” to get the role.
She took to Twitter and wrote:

“So, here’s me chopping my L and moving on, never to speak of it again. If this is how God wants it then so be it. I rid myself of every hurt, every anger, every bitterness, every pain and opening my arms to receive better and more fulfilling opportunities where I’ll be valued.”
“Anyway, seeing as journalism is not really for me, what’s the easiest skill I can learn in tech and how long will it take for me to master it? Or is it rather late for me to switch to tech, seeing as I am not a spring chicken? … If you can hook me up to where I can learn it or”

“When a lady claims another used Sex to get success Is act of jealously Is demonic and Uncalled for But, my advise – next time, use the @ keypad. It makes the whole story complete But for the day, find a cool joint – sit alone, take a bottle of good refined wine. You need it”
