Kiki Mordi, one of the undercover journalists that featured in BBC Africa Eye’s Sex for Grades Documentary took to Twitter to announce that the documentary has been nominated for an international Emmy.
In 2019, BBC Africa Eye released a documentary titled “Sex for Grades” where journalists went undercover to expose lecturers in University of Lagos and University of Ghana who were soliciting sex from their female students in exchange for a good grade.
The documentary exposed lecturers such as Unilag’s Igbeneghu, and University of Ghana’s Paul Kwame Butakor, who were caught on camera making advances to students. The documentary also inspired the Nigerian Senate to reintroduce the criminilization of sexual advances by lecturers. Any lecturer found guilty of soliciting sex from students will serve jail time.
The winners of the international Emmys will be announced during the online ceremony on September 21.
