Shade Ladipo Slams Ruth Kadiri For Accusing Mo Abudu Of Award Favouritism
Nollywood is currently abuzz as actress media personality Shade Ladipo has taken swipe at actress Ruth Kadiri for complaining about an award snub.
The media personality in stories told Kadiri to stop being bitter as only people who celebrate others will be celebrated.
On April 14th, Ruth Kadiiri had accused the organisers of the Eko Star Awards of snubbing her filmmaking achievements.
Shade Ladipo while chiding Kadiri told her the platform didn’t even exist last year and she should be hopeful for the future.
“For the actress (atink it was Ruth Kadiri because there are so many ‘actresses’ now) who didn’t get recognised this year. Remember that last year there was no platform to even be recognised. So instead of being bitter, be better now there is a platform. And maybe next year will be your year or maybe not,” she wrote.
“Let’s give Mo Abudu her flowers while she is alive abeg. Every platform this woman has, she uses to celebrate women constantly. Celebrate with others and maybe they will celebrate with you.”

Kadiri in her complaint had tagged EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu who was one of the organisers, accusing the EbonyLife boss of not doing right by her.
“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. The film industry is controlled by women. So if you’re going to do it, do it right or don’t do it at all”, Kadiri wrote.
