Nollywood actress, Ruth Kadiri Ezerika has called out media mogul and owner of EbonylifeTV, Mosunmola Abudu popularly known as Mo Abudu, and others for not recognizing her during the just concluded Eko Star film and TV award.
Ruth Kadiri who was sad about not being recognized congratulated the winners and also promised herself that she is going to work very hard and won’t give up.
“I am a film maker. I am a woman, I am a hardworking 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 click. Yet again I have been overlooked.”
“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.
