Snubbed actress Ruth Kadiri calls out award organisers

Nollywood actress and filmmaker Ruth Kadiri has called out the Nigerian International Film summit (NIFS) for not recognising her at the Eko Star Film and TV Awards.

Kadiri took to her Instagram page, @ruthkadiri, on Tuesday to call out the organisers of the award for snubbing her and her work.

She said she was overlooked and not given an award despite her hard work in the film industry.

“I am a filmmaker. I am a woman. I am a hard-working 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 clique, yet again I have been overlooked,” she said.

The mother of one also called out @lagosstategovt, @moabudu, and @ijayonah for neglecting her.

She, however, urged them to do things the right way in the film industry as she would keep working hard and not give in to pressure.

“I will not be pressured. I will keep working hard. @lagosstategovt, @moabudu, @ijayonah @nifsummit, thanks for overlooking me, and congrats to everyone who got recognised.

“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,” she added.

The Eko Star Film and TV Awards was organised by the NIFS in conjunction with the Lagos State Ministry of Culture and Tourism, and Ebony Life Place.

The event was part of the Eko tourism, art, and culture series.

The event held at the Ebony Life Place recognised talented female actresses who had contributed to the industry’s growth.

Nollywood icons such as Sola Sobowale, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Uche Jumbo, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Uche Nancy, Chioma Ude, Funke Akindele-Bello, among others, were awarded at the event.
