Linda Ifeoma Ikeji (born 19 September 1980) is a Nigerian blogger, writer, entrepreneur and former model. She is known for her popular lindaikejiblog.

Linda was born and raised in a Catholic family from Nkwerre, Imo State, Nigeria. She is the second child. She began writing at the age of 10 and completed her secondary school at the age of 17. At 18, she enrolled at the University of Lagos, where she studied English language. She finished her University education in 2004 before going on to start her blog in 2006 as a hobby.

In 2018, Linda Ikeji‘s life took an unexpected turn after she became pregnant and had a baby. It made her readers wonder how and why she became pregnant considering the fact that she didn’t have any official boyfriend or husband. She was also known to preach celibacy to younger girls who read her blog.

Nobody knew the father of her little son for a really long time until Linda decided to reveal his name to the public one day. She didn’t want to announce the man who got her pregnant until when she was ready to. The father of Linda Ikeji’s baby turned out to be Sholaye Jeremi, who is a businessman and oil magnate. He is known to be very influential in the business world of Nigeria.

Sholaye Jeremi who is an indigene of Delta State is in his early 40’s. He is not a public person. This was why fans found it hard to believe if he was really her boyfriend since there was no proof of their relationship. Linda Ikeji‘s son isn’t Jeremy’s only child as reportedly has another son outside the country

Jeremi is a very close associate with a lot of top Nigerian business tycoons. He is rumored to have business deals with Kachukwu Ibe, the former minister of state for petroleum. Aside that, Sholaye Jeremi was often spotted at business conferences together with the oil magnate Femi Otedola.

He is also closely linked to the Delta State billionaire Ayiri Emami, who is based in Warri. Finally, he is also known to be acquaintances with Aliko Dangote. Though there are no confirmed joint businesses between them, they meet at the business conferences quite often.

Linda Ikeji’s baby daddy managed to remain undercover until his love story and controversy with her brought him to lime light.

In a post on her blog, Linda Ikeji explained how she met him and how her relationship began. She first of all denied the rumors that was spreading then that her ex boyfriend was married. She said he was single and she would never go into a relationship with someone who was already married.

According to her, their romance began when he met her in december 2015. It was the day after Christmas, and Linda Ikeji together with her friends were having dinner at the Wheatbaker Restaurant, Ikoyi. That evening, Sholaye walked into the bar and he and Linda quickly noticed each other. It was a major turn-on for Linda that he did not know who she was because usually, all the men she knew always acted like fans around her. As Linda reminisced on her blog, she almost immediately fell in love with this man. She was 35 and he was 37 then.

Sholaye too developed feelings for her. Linda Ikeji started to visit her boyfriend’s house in Lekki quite often, even though it was a long drive from her own house. Usually, she took her laptop with her, so she could work and spend time with him at the same time. To her, he was a very funny, charismatic and romantic man, and she has never felt for anyone the same way before. They then began planning to have a future together only a few weeks after they met, and Sholaye was calling his girlfriend Linda Ikeji Jeremi.

Then, something happened. Sholaye suddenly stopped calling and responding to Linda’s messages. The blogger was really confused why it was over all of a sudden. Later, Sholaye got in touch and confessed that Linda’s public lifestyle scared him off because he was more used to managing his businesses in privacy and did not want the excess attention. Linda told him that she understands, and then rhey separated. They reunited some time later in 2016 and tried to amend their relationship, but it did not work out, so they remained friends.

By 2017, both were single, and they decided to come back to each other. Linda Ikeji stated that their romance was intense, and they once again started planning their future together. Sometimes, she was unable to figure out where their relationship was heading because she considered them to be from completely different worlds. Many times, Linda walked away. However, due to her fame and publicity, it was easy for Sholaye to keep chasing her, and she would end up coming back to him, simply because she had trouble finding someone else.

Not long after, Linda’s pregnancy happened. According to her, the baby was not planned, and it was a sudden revelation for her, even though she and Sholaye were once joking about having a billionaire baby. As the blogger confessed, after it came to light that she was carrying a child, things became difficult between Linda and her boyfriend. As her post indicated, there were frequent mood swings on his side. They talked normally about pregnancy and plan the future of their child and Sholaye even suggested that Linda go to Dubai to have the baby. He promised her a traditional wedding, which they were planning together. However, there were days he would not talk to her at all.

Although Sholaye has always been on good terms with Linda’s parents and even messaged her father every day, things still took a sharp downturn quickly. Sholaye became aggressive and hateful towards her. He went back on his promise about the wedding and became an absolutely different man. This was the main reason why Linda and her family had to cut off communication with him. Nowadays, Linda Ikeji calls Sholaye Jeremi “a completely closed chapter”, and she is not considering the opportunity of letting him back into her life.

She gave birth to her baby and called him Jayce Jeremi. The celebrity blogger gave birth to her baby boy on September 17th, 2018. It was only two days before Linda’s 38th birthday. She delivered her baby in Atlanta, United States. At first, she referred to him as just Baby J, until she decided to post another picture with him, where she shared his full name to her followers.

Linda Ikeji said that her son was her biggest strength through difficult times. The last months of her pregnancy were gentle as if he wanted to go easier on his mother.

Also, Linda’s delivery was very easy, as she spent only thirty minutes in the labor room. After giving birth, she got in shape very quickly – in about three weeks. She calls Jayce her little soldier. Even though Linda is a confident career woman and says that relationships are not the most essential part of her life, she would still want to find someone in the future and her son to grow in a loving home. As for now, she gives him all the love herself.
