Nigerian investigative journalist, Kiki Mordi has just landed her first Emmy nomination. The 29-year-old facilitated the investigation which exposed the ills happening in many West African universities when she went undercover to a number of tertiary institutions in Nigeria and Ghana.
The result, which was a documentary “BBC Africa Eye: Sex For Grades” started a cultural revolution, bringing to the forefront the prevalent issue about lecturers in many universities demanding sexual favours for grades.
Recall that the critically-acclaimed documentary also prompted a former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar and ex-Senate President, Bukola Saraki to call on the Nigerian Government to take immediate action against sexual harassment in higher institutions.
Also, the Nigerian Senate re-introduced the anti-sexual harassment bill on October 9, 2019, in response to the documentary. Kiki has received recognition for her work within and outside Nigeria and it just earned her an Emmy nomination in the News & Current Affairs category.
The investigation is nominated alongside others from Brazil, the UK and Sweden. Kiki Mordi shared the news on her Twitter and Instagram congratulating her team. See below.
Here's me, despite being an emotional mess, announcing that @BBCAfrica #BBCAfricaEye's #SexForGrades is nominated in the "Current Affairs" category for this year's international Emmys.
Every single soul that made this project come alive deserves this honor! https://t.co/KemqXtZAYl
