Several female celebrities were in attendance at the prestigious event, and a number of them were awarded some of which includes: Toyin Abraham, Omotola Jalade ekeinde, Nancy Isime, Omoni Oboli, zainab Balogun, Kate Henshaw.
Ruth Kadiri who was clearly not recognized took to her Instagram page to call the organisers for their sentiments and impartiality.
“I am a filmmaker. I am a woman. I am a hardworking woman. I have faced the struggles every woman/fillmakers has faced. Did my name at any point pop up yes. It because i donor belong to a click. Yet again I have been overlooked.
I will not be pressured. I will keep working hard @lagosstaegivt @moabudu @ijayonah @nifsummit thanks for overlooking ne and congrats to everyone who got recognized the film industry I controlled by women, so if you’re going to do it, do it right or don’t do it at all”.
