Linda Ikeji Biography
Linda Ikeji is a Nigerian blogger and entrepreneur and easily the most famous face in Nigeria’s blogging universe.
She started blogging at a time the Internet and online news dissemination had not gained traction in Nigeria. However, in the intervening years since launching her blog in 2004, she had emerged as the most successful blogger in Nigeria, with features in several notable publications, including Forbes.
Her success has inspired many to venture into the blogging niche as well.
Born in 1980 in eastern Nigeria, Linda Ikeji is currently 40 years old. She will be 41 a couple of days from now. Would she buy the 2022 Rolls Royce Cullinan she says she fancies?
Linda Ikeji is one of the richest bloggers in Nigeria and Africa. Rated in dollars, she’s a millionaire. But het naira net worth is reportedly 5 billion – not bad for one who takes her business seriously.
Linda Ikeji has more than one house. But her most famous apartment to date is her Banana Island home, which she reportedly acquired at a sum of N500 million. The mansion is painted white and sits on three floors.
After longish speculations about who her baby daddy might be, Linda Ikeji had revealed he is no other than the Nigerian businessman Sholaye Jeremi. He’s said to have interests in Nigeria’s oil sector and gas sector, as well as real estate.
She met him at a restaurant in 2015. At the time, according to her, he was living in a three-bedroom apartment in Lekki. After a whirlwind romance, she discovered she was pregnant for him. Before then, he had joked about putting a billionaire baby inside of her.
Although they had discussed marriage and even came close to doing the traditional wedding, it never. She would state later that they’re not compatible.
The celebrity blogger is the mother of a son, Jayce. Born in 2018, she considers him her world and her everything. Apparently, and as she readily admitted in a post on her blog, the pregnancy wasn’t planned.
But then it had turned out her biggest blessing ever. Looking back, she could only wonder why she didn’t have a child earlier.
When she gave birth and announced her son to the world, she had been severely criticized for not being celibate after reportedly asking other girls who aren’t married to stay away from sex.
She had countered that she’d merely asked ladies not to sleep with multiple men, insisting sex should only happen when one is in a committed and loving relationship, and that was her case at the time she had her son.
Blogging is where Linda Ikeji stands out, not movies. But then, as one of the leading content platforms in Nigeria and indeed Africa, it is inevitable she should feature some of the movies produced in Nigeria and beyond.
She was among those that covered the MTV Video Movie Awards.
Linda Ikeji’s love for cars has never been in question. From Range Rover to Bentley, the songstress doesn’t discriminate when it comes to splurging on some of the choicest cars on the market.
A year ago, to celebrate her birthday, she acquired a 2020 Range Rover Velar and showed off the pricy ride on Instagram, shouting out the dealership that helped her acquire her “dream car.” She also threw in a little joke about her Bentley Mulsanne.
Other cars she has in her collection are Range Rover Sport 2014. She reportedly repurchased the stunner then at the cost of 24 million. Years later, she would buy a Limited Edition 2016 Range Rover Autobiography, reportedly at the cost of 90 million.
Her Bentley Mulsanne, which she acquired in 2018, was specifically to celebrate the birth of her son. But, unfortunately, the car was said to have set her back by 108 million.
With the acquisition of a 2020 Range Rover Autobiography, she quietly amplifies her love not only for the brand but for its Autobiography luxury line.
In early August 2020, she had shared an image of a 2020 Rolls Royce and wondered out loud if she should sell her 2020 Bentley and buy the Rolls. She had also joked that the single men in Lagos would run away because of that.
