Almost a year since the expository Sex For Grades documentary was released, the Nigerian journalist behind the documentary, Kiki Mordi, has bagged her first Emmy nomination for the work.
In the documentary, the 29-year-old exposed the rot in West African universities when she went undercover to a number of tertiary institutions in Nigeria and Ghana.
The BBC Africa Eye documentary captured lecturers demanding sex for grades.
In UNILAG, a lecturer propositioned Kiki, who he thought was a prospective student, for sex so as to help her gain admission into the institution.
The documentary started a conversation about the prevalent issue of sex for grades in Nigerian universities and prompted a former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar and a former Senate President of Nigeria, Bukola Saraki to call on the Nigerian Government to take immediate action against sexual harassment in Nigerian Universities.
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 of the award.
Emotional Kiki Mordi could not contain her excitement as she shared the news on Twitter.
