Nollywood actress, Zainab Balogun took to her Instagram page shade her colleague, Ruth Kadiri who called out the organizers of the Eko star film and Tv awards for not giving due recognition to her.
Ruth Kadiri on Instagram called out the organizers of the awards saying she was ignored despite her value and hard work because she doesn’t belong to any clique.
“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 click? Yet again, I have been overlooked will not be pressured. I will keep working hard. @lagosstategovt @moabudu @ijayonah @nifsummit thanks for overlooking me and congrats to everyone who got recognized.”
Actress Zainab who was honored at the event wrote on IG:
“Yesterday was emotional. I don’t know how we all didn’t burst into tears I think it’s fair to say we need a monthly summit. God knows I LOVE acting. Absolutely love it with every bone in my body yet being a Nigerian female creative can be SO tiring. I have stories for days!!!! It’s so easy to feel overlooked when you go against the grain. Yesterday I was honored along with a room full of talented women who are simply doing their best and moving the needle effortlessly. Thank you for seeing us! @lagosstategovt @moabudu and @ijayonah As it was perfectly said, our work has just started Congratulations to all the winners #Actress #womeninfilm #ekostarfilmtvawards”
