Linda Ikeji is one of the most popular female celebrity, not only in Nigeria, but in Africa. Her rise to fame and wealth through a profession that was least known and respected in Nigeria is like a puzzle to many. So difficult to comprehend that some has resorted to attributing her success to some dubious means rather than through hard work. But the truth is that she made it through blogging, 100%.
To think that a couple of years ago, Linda Ikeji was just a lady with a dream and few coins In her pocket like most people around. Yet she dared to press forward. A couple even admitted that they used to laughed at her behind her back of course when they’d see her journeying to the cafe to go and blog.
Now, just about 6 years down the line and those that laughed at her are nobody and Linda is a name that some of the biggest brands are proud to be associated with.She is a self made billionaire who made her money pure and clean without any form of corruption nor immorality as it is common with ladies nowadays.
How do we know – you may ask? Well, you will soon find out but firstly, let’s get to know the girl, Linda Ikeji, and where she is coming from. Linda is a celebrity blogger who is considered to be one of the most successful internet entrepreneur in Nigeria. She was born on September 17, 1980 and started blogging in 2006 after trying her hands in so many other trades without success. According to her, blogging paid off, and today, she is living the life of her dream.
A graduate of English Language from University of Lagos, Nigeria, Linda is a role model to many youths in Africa who aspires to be just like her. She recently started a mentoring program (I’ll rather be self made) for Nigeria girls. This program is aimed to assist the Nigerian girls to more resourceful and productive.
Contrary to some people’s opinion, Linda’s success did not happen by chance neither was it gifted to her. It was a product of hard work and pure persistence. She started blogging at a time when internet access was least pronounced in Nigeria. She had told the story time and again of how she used to borrow money to buy airtime to blog in the cyber cafe.
As a poor girl coming from a humble background, it takes high level of hard work and persistence to have continued doing what she did is such circumstances. Eventually, it paid off, and that very blog is today valued at $10million.
