Nigerian journalist, Ruona Meyer has reacted to the backlash she received from fellow journalist, Kiki Mordi.
Ruona Meyer had earlier accused Kiki Mordi of taking credit of a documentary that wasn’t executed by her.
Kiki Mordi immediately clapped back at Ruona, accusing her of being jealous each time she wins an award.
She added that she is trying so hard to understand what she did to Ruona except unfollowing her on Twitter.
Ruona fired back by tweeting: “Lmao journalism ain’t rap. One pitched a story, got sources, did the indercover work, risked life for footage and exposè that your Jay-Z is selling upandan. One has suffered immense strain after, and bravely admitted publicly their grieviances, so the other should share credit/$$.
“Make di real owners of di food, wey bring am come, cook am finish, make dem chop first. How person wey carry tori+ main source come go dey run upandan to get Emeka sabitikate, dey write complain, yet u balance, no share proceeds? Wetin bad dey BAD. “Journalist” MUST get honour.
“Today is not the day we will talk about award organisers that reward dishonourable journalists for work produced via unethical means. Person go need chop rice finish before e touch di meat. Let sis get her rightful coins first.
“Lmao Nkiru Mordi @kikimordi in true fashion. Hushpuppi of journalism. YOU called me, as recommended by C of Africa Eye & BEGGED me for tips on what I did to maintain SEO. If u applied yourself To this profession you’d KNOW external clicks redirect away from ur site. Journ 101.
“On a good day, clout chasers like you are why one may not deign to take calls or help others, but I will call you out so you do not ruin the chances for others. I sat in that newsroom when that story was pitched, which is why when I found out, I stoppes promo-ing it as asked to.
“Stop seeking my smoke. You go CHOKE. Have honour, share the proceeds not mouthing thanks & emojis to the extent a human feels the need to call you out. O’s thread exists. Y’all deal with THAT. You did THAT. Go sort it. And stop crying because ICFJ food wan comot ur detty mouth.
“Lmao @kikimordi climb down from trailer you no hear. Please go back to school so that basic SEO and how to increase virality does not somehow come out of your brain as one telling you not to tweet my own broda story.
“Na Big Chief kuku say some of una will never get sense.
“Oh yes! Because how dull can Nkiru be to be sharing a screenshot that shows me saying “application” and “uni,” and tell people I was using the convo to tell you to do clout? Kids, say no to igbeaux o. Before you do pass yourself.”
