“You can’t f**k your way to the top” – Kiki Mordi

Award-winning Nigerian journalist Kiki Mordi has expressed disgust at those who attribute successful women’s wealth to sex work.

You can’t f__k your way to the top - Kiki Mordi

Kiki Mordi spoke on the common narrative that says “success does not belong to women unless it’s handed to them by men”.

She pointed out that when a woman makes so much money, people start insinuating that she slept with men to afford it but no one insinuates a rich man made his money by having sex with people.

See what she wrote below;

“You can’t fuck your way to the top, if you could men would be doing it. Stop demanding successful women give you details about the whereabouts of their vaginas if you’re not gonna ask men if their penis got them to the top.

“Tired of this narrative where women have to prove they have not had sex to merit their success when men just have to be successful. You’re telling us that success does not belong to women unless it’s handed to them by men. And via sex no less. Or that sex work isn’t infact, work.”
