A Nigerian OAP identified as Smiles Baba has showered praises on actress Mercy Johnson, while taking time to berate Tonto Dikeh and Linda Ikeji.

He made his statement in reaction to the ongoing controversy trailing actress Tonto Dikeh, Linda Ikeji where he stated that despite her noises, she ended up as a baby mama. And he didn’t spare Linda Ikeji as well.

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.
In 2012, when Mercy Johnson had her first child, Purity, a job actually came knocking at her door on return…. As a professional that she is, she chose not to let her manager and Linda Ikeji fans down, hence she shunned omugwo and went ahead for the shoot. Then came madam critic, TONTO DIKE. Tonto disparaged Mercy’s struggles and Linda Ikeji talked down on her hustle.

She concluded her rant with a boast, that she would rather remain single than be married to a man who is not rich enough to take care of her after childbirth… A man that would allow her go on set while still nursing a newborn…

That was the height of Tonto’s insensitivity to the realities of life… Linda Ikeji helped rebroadcast that unbridled rant from a weed ravaged cosmetic albino of a girl… Little did we know that Tonto was actually speaking under the influence of Churchill’s amu… The same she now call “40 seconds dick.” Fast forward to 2019…

Both Tonto Dike and Linda Ikeji have all gone into one or Linda Ikeji two relationships and come out empty, while Mercy Johnson is still hanging on, and getting better with her husband everyday. Both Tonto Dike and Linda Ikeji did not last up to a quarter of Mercy’s marriage term so far, but have all come out to give long sermons against their baby fathers, whom they now call EX, while Mercy is still hanging on, and Linda Ikeji enjoying her family with 3 lovely kids.

As the case may be, neither me nor you have heard Mercy say anything awful against her husband or marriage… But her critic and media vendor have all gone, saw, ran out and are crying wolf… Whatever lesson you could make out of this situation… Make it. Don’t be a Tonto… Be a Mercy!

Sholaye was born on 8th July, Linda Ikeji in the late 1970s. He is of Itsekiri origin from Delta state. This gentleman according to reports, is an astute businessman, who has made significant success for himself through his dealings in the oil and gas sector. His exploits as a successful businessman has, however, came with little to no publicity.

In addition, Sholaye is reported to be a married man. Rumours have it that, his wife and kid(s) are based in the United Kingdoms.
How Sholaye Jeremi Met Linda Ikeji?

Linda Ikeji’s Emotional Blackmail of Sholaye Jeremi

The formidable cloak, which shielded Linda Ikeji’s secret relationship with the silent billionaire oil tycoon, Sholaye Jeremi, started losing strength the moment Linda Ikeji decided to keep the pregnancy. She was able to conceal the pregnancy for some months, but nature wouldn’t allow for further concealment.

Linda Ikeji, who has always been an advocate of celibacy and a strong campaigner against premarital sex feared for her reputation and got ahead of the game. She consequently revealed her pregnancy and engagement to the whole world. This was her first step in bullying the Baby daddy, Sholaye into submission.

The report of her pregnancy filtered through every media platforms within and beyond Nigeria. The media controversy that trailed her announcement was the mystery surrounding the identity of the baby daddy, Linda ikeji who was later revealed to be Sholaye Jeremi.

Shortly after Linda Ikeji gave birth, She revealed the name of her baby as Jayce Jeremi, which was her subtle way of revealing the father of her baby. This subtle revelation was to Jeremi, a blatant betrayal of trust by Linda Ikeji, as her subtle revelation effectively removed the cloak of their secret relationship; hence, making him extremely vulnerable to public scrutiny.

So far, since the birth of his son, Sholaye Jeremi has maintained his silence. He is yet to publicly acknowledge or reject baby Jayce as his own. One obvious thing is; Linda Ikeji is attempting to bully Sholaye Jeremi into accepting the baby. The outcome still remains fluid.

Repercussions of Linda Ikeji’s Revelations on Sholaye’s Life and Business

The prime factor of Sholaye’s success is his ability to stay off the public’s radar, thereby eliminating unsolicited scrutiny into his life, business, wealth and associates. His clients and associates bask in the formidable degree of confidentiality, in doing business with this man. With the recent developments, all these are likely to change; for the better or worse.

While he’s kept a cool head throughout the controversy, he must be drawing out plans to quel the rumours going round or at best, turn them in his favour. As an astute businessman, which he’s proven himself to be, the later seems the more probable outcome.

The drama that unfolded recently as a result of the article published by Linda Ikeji definitely got social media buzzing.
Read Linda Ikeji article below:

I argued with myself for a long time whether to put this out or not…and finally decided it was a story I wanted to share.

I’ve always been open about my life but I’m sharing details about my personal life mostly because of the girls who look up to me. The girls I have mentored, mentoring right now and plan to mentor in the future.

The most hilarious is that I had a child for a married man. Lol. Here’s my answer to that! The married man that I will sleep with has not yet been born. If he’s been born, he will die, be buried, rise and die again before he will lay with me. I don’t do married men.
Photo: Premium Times

The father of my child is a single man and his name is Sholaye Jeremi. To be honest, at some point I thought he was my final bus stop but you know how life happens…lol. Unfortunately, he and I are a completely closed chapter.

Sadly for our son Jayce, it’s the kind of chapter that can’t ever be opened again. One of the things many people have asked me is how I met this man because we don’t run in the same circle.

Well, I met him 3 years ago at Wheatbaker Restaurant in Ikoyi in December 2015 shortly after I moved to my home in Banana Island, Ikoyi. It was a day after Christmas and I was having dinner with friends when he walked in. He saw me and the rest is history.

He claimed at the time that he had never heard of me which was seriously a turn-on for me because up until then I’d only been meeting men who behaved like fans.

At the time we met, I was 35 and he was 37 and I’d been single for nearly 4 years. I was definitely searching and I fell in love almost immediately and so we became an item.

At the time I met him he lived in a 3-bedroom flat at what used to be 5th roundabout in Lekki after Mobil. I used to drive for almost two hours in traffic from my house to go see him. Most of the time, I carried my laptop to his home to enable me to work and at the same time spend the whole day with him.

It was a whirlwind romance. He was the funniest and most romantic guy I’d met up until that point, so it was easy to fall in love and I truly believed the feeling was mutual. A few weeks after we met, it seemed like we were planning a future together.

This man was already calling me Linda Ikeji Jeremi and making all these plans but then just like that, it was over between us. I went from waking up every morning to love text messages from him to no more calls.

I was just thanking God for finally sending me my own man when all of a sudden we were no longer talking to each other. Later he would tell me what scared him off. My public life. He claims he’s a private businessman and didn’t want the attention being with me would bring to him and I told him I understood and we went our separate ways.

We tried to get back together in 2016 but it didn’t work out so much so we separated again but stayed in touch (mostly him to be honest), stayed friends and that was how our back and forth started.

By mid-2017, we were both still single and we started seeing each other again quietly. There were times it was very intense and we talked about a future together, and there were times that I couldn’t figure out what exactly I was doing with this guy. We were not suited for each other.

Totally different lifestyles. And there was the problem of my fame. I walked away from this man a million times and he came after me a million and one times.

No matter how much I pushed him away, he kept coming back and me, because I couldn’t find anyone else, I kept going back. Lol. So I was basically going back to my ex because I couldn’t find anyone else. *sigh*.

If I tried to explain what happened, I wouldn’t be able to because it was confusing to me. We went from talking about the pregnancy and being okay with it; he even suggested I go to Dubai for my pre-natals as he didn’t trust doctors in Nigeria, to literally not talking to each other anymore.

Around when I was about three months pregnant, he did come to see my parents and actually became very cool with my dad. They were literally exchanging Whatsapp messages every day.

Nigerian Celebrities: Baby Before The Marriage

He later agreed to a traditional wedding which he didn’t follow through and then he switched. He began to treat me with so much hate and aggression that I and my family had to cut him off completely.

To be honest if anybody had told me when we met three years ago, considering how deeply we cared for each other that I would fall pregnant two years later and he would completely turn his back on me for the most part of my pregnancy, I never would have believed it but that’s what happened.

I had to draw strength from myself, my family and close friends. And Jayce…oh my son Jayce, he was my biggest strength. It was almost as if he knew his dad was acting up so he came through for his mum. He was gentle with me when I was carrying him. I had an extremely easy pregnancy. I pushed him out under 3 mins and was in the labour room for less than 30 minutes.

And then my snapback was amazing. Three weeks later, it was almost as if I’d never been pregnant. Jayce was my soldier when his dad turned his back.

But still, I have absolutely no iota of regret meeting Sholaye. Gosh, have you seen Jayce? How can I regret that? God doesn’t make mistakes. If you believe that you’re always led by God like I believe then I have to believe that God led me to this man for whatever reasons best known to Him. I thought God sent him as my life partner but I guess He just used him as a vessel for my greatest blessing.

Now his part in my story is over. I know when to put my hands up and surrender. That God brought someone significant into your life doesn’t mean they are supposed to follow you throughout your life’s journey. We should learn to know when people’s part in our story is over.

Sometimes people just come to serve a purpose in your life and are not meant to stay and there’s no point holding on to them.

This one is done and dusted. It’s just Jayce and I now moving forward and I know life will be beautiful for us.

Being a single mum wasn’t the dream I had for myself; I’d prayed for the kind of happy home my parents built for us (they’ve been together for 40 years). Nothing is more important to me than family.

And we also have no control over the actions of other people towards us. One of the things I have learnt in my life’s journey is that your idea of how life should go might be different from the way life actually goes. It’s called Life Happening.

Sometimes it unfolds into something we never dreamed of but because we don’t recognize the route we find ourselves on our journey through life, doesn’t mean God won’t get us to our destination.

Remember, an uncertain chapter doesn’t ruin the whole book. Life will happen whether we are ready or not. All we can do is keep our heads up and keep moving.

Family and Linda Ikeji close friends told me I owed no one any explanation about the circumstances that led to the birth of my son, but I knew without writing this, I could never stand in front of the young girls who look up to me and talk to them again.

I could never go on my secondary school tour and speak with these girls again about living right and doing right. I would always feel like I have no moral right to do so.

I went to 15 secondary schools in 2017 and talking to those young impressionable girls has been one of the highlights of my life.

I cancelled this year’s tour because I was pregnant and I haven’t made any preparations for next year’s tour because I wanted to set things right first.

I have so many plans for young girls next year and in the coming years with the Selfmade finance and mentorship projects with international collaborations, so this was important for me to do, to explain myself to the young girls who look up to me and feel disappointed that I got pregnant and had a baby out of wedlock.

For years, I have preached decency, morality, and uprightness and despite what happened to me, I mean it from the bottom of my heart. That should be the only way to live. That’s the only way I live. Don’t ever compromise your values.

With this, I was led by my heart and my clock ticking and even though I have no regrets, I’m sorry if I let any of you ladies down by the decision I made, and I hope you learn from my experience. I hope you do better than I did.

The ideal thing would be to find a man you love, who loves you back and gives you stability, get married, have kids and raise a family, not being a single mum or a baby mama.

I was 37 years old at the time I conceived and if I want to be honest, my age played a role in me allowing myself to be pregnant out of wedlock. I don’t want to be having kids in my 40s or struggling with fertility later in life. This wasn’t the plan but like I said before, life happens.

You just have to find a way to make the best of what life throws at you. And so for any young girl, this means anything to, I am truly sorry. I am not sorry I had Jayce, I’m just sorry I didn’t go about it the right way.

The other thing I’ve always said is; do not sleep around with multiple men who just use your body for their pleasure; that is; too many one nights stands, casual sex, many sex partners in a short period of time all in the name of relationships.

Your body deserves better. I feel sex should only happen when you’re in a loving, committed relationship with someone you love.

I was celibate for many years until I met my son’s father and fell in love. And instead of increasing my body count, I just went back to the same eggplant…lol.

My mistake was I should have walked away when the relationship became a waste…lol… but then again, Jayce wouldn’t be here today if I had.

So really, there’s nothing that I have preached that I didn’t practice. So you guys stop trolling me over this abeg! Lol Thank you for reading and thank you for your understanding.
Love and kisses to you and yours. Hugs. Linda”.

There are so many lessons to draw from the article that sparked various conversations.
Below are 5 lessons to be learnt from Linda Ikeji’s saga:

Never Bring Your Child(ren) Into The Relationship Drama

Linda Ikeji mentioned her baby in some parts of the article listed below:

“Two days before my 38th birthday on September 17th, I welcomed my first child, my son, Jayce. I look at him and I wonder why I waited so long to have a child.

I’ve never known love like this. I literally have tears in my eyes every time I look at him. I can’t believe he came out of me.

He is by far my greatest blessing and I’m looking forward to navigating him through life! Now to the reason why you are reading this.

I’m very particular about our young girls and I have personally tried over the years to be an example in some way; tried to teach these girls how to fight for their dreams, how to live right and do right and then I go and have a child out of wedlock and that must be a little confusing to some of them and especially with so many untruthful stuff out there about me.
The most hilarious is that I had a child for a married man……..

Sadly for our son Jayce, it’s the kind of chapter that can’t ever be opened again……

He said something about putting a billionaire baby inside me and I remember jokingly telling him that I’m also a billionaire so our child was going to be a billionaire on both side…and we laughed. But after I fell pregnant, things became extremely weird between us.

We went from talking about the pregnancy and being okay with it; he even suggested I go to Dubai for my pre-natals as he didn’t trust doctors in Nigeria, to literally not talking to each other anymore.

Around when I was about three months pregnant, he did come to see my parents and actually became very cool with my dad.

I had to draw strength from myself, my family and close friends. And Jayce…oh my son Jayce, he was my biggest strength.
But still, I have absolutely no iota of regret meeting Sholaye. Gosh, have you seen Jayce?
This one is done and dusted. It’s just Jayce and I now moving forward and I know life will be beautiful for us.
My mistake was I should have walked away when the relationship became a waste…lol… but then again, Jayce wouldn’t be here today if I had”.

Regardless of whatever drama you have going on with your baby Daddy or baby Mama ensure you never bring your baby into the issue.

Protect your child(ren) from the misunderstanding as they are vulnerable to whatever strain you have in the relationship.
The child’s interest must always come first regardless of your differences.

Own Your Mistakes

Often times when a relationship turns sour, some people are quick to ascribe the blame to the other party.

The reality is that no one is perfect, hence, it is important to own your mistakes in order to learn from the experience.

“No matter how much I pushed him away, he kept coming back and me, because I couldn’t find anyone else, I kept going back. Lol. So I was basically going back to my ex because I couldn’t find anyone else. *sigh*.

Then I fell pregnant. It wasn’t planned, it just happened; though we talked about having a child together just two months before I fell pregnant.
With this, I was led by my heart and my clock ticking and even though I have no regrets…..

I was 37 years old at the time I conceived and if I want to be honest, my age played a role in me allowing myself to be pregnant out of wedlock. I don’t want to be having kids in my 40s or struggling with fertility later in life. This wasn’t the plan but like I said before, life happens.”
The “God” Excuse

Without even been conscious, some people have used “God” has an excuse to cover up for poor decision or consequences of their actions.

If you plant yam; you will harvest yam at the harvest period. Also if you fall down, you may get bruised but definetely not “pregnant” right?
Linda Ikeji article excerpt:

“I was just thanking God for finally sending me my own man when all of a sudden we were no longer talking to each other.

But still, I have absolutely no iota of regret meeting Sholaye. Gosh, have you seen Jayce? How can I regret that? God doesn’t make mistakes.

If you believe that you’re always led by God like I believe then I have to believe that God led me to this man for whatever reasons best known to Him.

I thought God sent him as my life partner but I guess He just used him as a vessel for my greatest blessing.
Now this part in my story is over. I know when to put my hands up and surrender.

That God brought someone significant into your life doesn’t mean they are supposed to follow you throughout your life’s journey. We should learn to know when people’s part in our story is over.

Don’t fight for closure, don’t ask for explanations, don’t chase answers, just let them go and know that if God meant for you to have them in your life, He would have given them to you.

For years I’d hammered on how much I was looking forward to getting married, having children and building my own family and I believed God was going to come through for me on that one, but I have come to understand that we have no control over what life throws at us no matter how much we plan, pray, or work.

Sometimes it unfolds into something we never dreamed of but because we don’t recognize the route we find ourselves on our journey through life, doesn’t mean God won’t get us to our destination.”
Social Media The Relationship Judge, Jury And Executioner

History indeed has shown us with other people’s relationships that social media is not the best place to resolve your grievances between you and your Baby Daddy or Baby Mama.

Have you have heard the saying: Three Is A Crowd. Imagine the conflict between you and your baby’s father/mother aired on social media for your numerous followers and any curious person to start to pick sides in the conflict.
Social media is a vicious Judge, Jury and Executioner you definitely do not want to rouse.

Linda Ikeji article excerpt::

“At the time I met him he lived in a 3-bedroom flat at what used to be 5th roundabout in Lekki after Mobil. I used to drive for almost two hours in traffic from my house to go see him. Most of the time, I carried my laptop to his home to enable me to work and at the same time spend the whole day with him.

This man was already calling me Linda Ikeji Jeremi and making all these plans but then just like that, it was over between us. I went from waking up every morning to love text messages from him to no more calls.”

“I Started Modelling At Age 17

Linda Ikeji is a famous blogger in Nigeria who in 2013 made it onto the list of Forbes influential bloggers which is no easy feat!

controlc.comHer blog provides news, beauty tips, and celebrity gossip to her readers.

She started blogging when she was 17 years old with no background in journalism or writing experience.

Today, she has over 3 million followers on Facebook where she posts almost daily.

With so many people following her work, Linda Ikeji has been able to make a living for herself by running the blog as well as taking advertisements from various companies.

She has been able to launch her own beauty line as well as a clothing line via print on demand.

folkd.comShe was also named one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in 2014 and awarded an honorary doctorate from Babcock University.

Linda Ikeji continues to work hard to provide her readers with the latest posts and information on entertainment news.

She has been in the spotlight for her success and achievements as an entrepreneur while being one of Nigeria’s most successful bloggers to date.

Her blog began when she had just finished school with no further ideas about what career path to take until she discovered blogging.
Nigerian web video star Linda Ikeji opened up about her grass-to-grace story on the latest episode of Forbes Woman Africa’s Against All Odds.

The media mogul, who has become one of Africa’s successful bloggers since she started blogging in 2006 and Https://Cults3D.Com/ recently launched an app-based subscription channel, was interviewed by host Peace Hyde.

Ikeji spoke about her journey to success and addressed her transition from modelling to blogging, the controversies and challenges she has faced, and her current projects.

“I started modelling at age 17, not as a passion but as a way to make ends meet. I did a lot of part-time jobs while in school – one even included me selling beer at hotels. I would leave school at 1pm and start selling from 2pm to 10pm, and in turn get paid N1500 [US$4.15] a day,” she said.

When asked if she ever imagined achieving her current fame, Ikeji said: “I never expected it. As a matter of fact, I started blogging in November 2006 as an extension of my writing hobby and because I was inspired by BellaNaija’s blog, which started in June 2006.”

She continued: “I was going through my stats recently and it dawned on me that all this has been a gradual process. From 10 views in 2008 to a thousand, years later, then a million and so on. It didn’t just happen, I had to stick to it.”

Linda Ikeji also outlined some of the challenges she has faced along the way. “I’ve been involved in a couple of controversies with celebrities and politicians. I remember in 2012 when I was involved in one and the guy promised to bring down my blog.

“Then one day I woke up to find my blog deleted and this guy gloating on social media that he was behind it. But one thing about me is I may get knocked down but I never stay down. I got it up and running again in two days.”

Ikeji also said she has long had a passion for building up others, especially young girls, and has started an initiative called Self Made to help others achieve their goals.

“I don’t want to be just a rich blogger. I want to impact society, I want to help young girls grow without having to succumb to negative ventures to do that. When I speak to young people, I tell them that passion is what will get you there, not just money.”

As well as being a top blogger, Linda Ikeji is also the CEO of Linda Ikeji TV, which airs talkshows, drama series and reality content. LITV launched this month and has a number of originals lined up.

Against All Odds is produced by Forbes Women Africa for CNBC Africa. It profiles women who are trailblazers in diverse business fields in Africa and who inspire younger women to be bold and break boundaries.

Wait, that’s no longer news now, is it? The online community has been agog for hours: some expressing incredulity that their beloved blog and information portal had been unceremoniously taken from them. Most happy that finally the number one blog in Nigeria, West Africa, and probably the whole of Africa had been deleted/suspended. A minority however like yours truly are indifferent to the news. We’re neither fans nor haters.

So, why am I writing about the event if it bothers me little? Simple, Linda Ikeji’s blog is a symbol of something bigger than gossip, entertainment gist and unverified news and Linda Ikeji herself. Her blog has become a way of life in Nigeria, transcending tribe and race. You’ll be hard pressed to see any lady that does not take regular doses of the blog by spending a minimum of two hours on the blog weekly.

Hence, how could something so BIG built through sweat and Linda Ikeji years of hard work be deleted with a push of a button exposing the owner of the blog to simmering malice and outright display of insensitivity? What is the underlying story between Linda Ikeji and her malicious oppressor? How come her own blog was the only one deleted when it is common knowledge that blogging in Nigeria defines plagiarism? Why her?

The answer may not be too far fetched. As I’ve already posited, hers may be the biggest blog in Africa and worth over a million dollars (note: that figure I imagine is grossly below the real worth of http://www.lindaikeji.blogspot.com ), and in other to make a point, and show Nigerian bloggers that everything they are about may be removed with a few keystrokes.

I didn’t read the article written by Linda Ikeji, neither did I hear of any report, until a colleague said to me: dem don delete Linda Ikeji blog. I checked and went on twitter and there, the unthinkable had been done.

So, it is no longer news, Linda Ikeji’s blog is offline. Whether temporarily or permanently remains to be seen. How she responds to this setback in her blogging career will show the world the true manner of Linda Ikeji. I remember watching her interview on NDani TV and falling in love with her brilliance and tenacity. Her playful disposition and the fact that she held her own around Toolz made me respect her person immensely. That respect didn’t mean I became a fan of her blog; I fell in love with the person but couldn’t be bothered to endorse her work. I’d be lying though if I said that I do not occasionally get gist from her blog, no thanks to colleagues and friends.

Anyways, after learning of the recent setback to the blog, and in order to be objective seeing as all Nigerian bloggers plagiarize, I spoke with a few friends and felt the pulse of others. Yes, Linda Ikeji’s die hard fans like Arsenal fans are cussing the bad break on hate and they do not want to believe that Linda Ikeji herself may have a hand in this undoing. Wait, before you stone me, answer these few questions:
1: Where is the Linda Ikeji Blog office located?

2: How many people work there as full time employees of the blog? (Staff writers, IT dept, Legal, photographers e.t.c.)

3: Why hasn’t she paid for her own domain name and migrated her blog from lindaikeji.blogspot.com to lindaikeji.com (or whatever name she chooses)

4: As a top blogger, why doesn’t she give credit to the original writer/journalist (for want of a better word)?

And the list of questions been raised may be endless as people are having a field day with this discourse sparked off by Google doing exactly what Jennifer Lawrence accused them of not doing… Pushing the delete button.

At the end of the day, I expect Linda Ikeji to take away positives from this slight setback. If Google does not restore her blog, then she can always start another. However, the legal and financial implications to her may be dire. I imagine she’s losing money now with this downtime. And she’ll have to pay lawyers a handsome fee as retainer for them to take on Google.

Whatever finally happens, when this dust gathers and visibility has been restored, it is my earnest hope and prayer that all Nigerian bloggers will carve a niche for themselves by writing original, objective stories. I mean gossip shouldn’t be credited to anyone, but if it will land you in hot soup, you’d point out your source wouldn’t you?

Linda Ikeji shares what happened in her meeting with Wizkid at the Police Commissioner’s office today and explains the picture Wizkid has shared on social media. I find her version/rendition of the facts credible.

Folks, Linda Ikeji got Wizkid to apologize and in the final analysis as to this case and in a society like Nigeria, that is what matters because it sends a VERY strong message across the continent and in the diaspora that acts like these will NOT be tolerated. Further, I think every Nigerian artist and celebrity and those who represent them is now officially on notice that it will not be that type of party where you go around threatening to assault/physically harm people.

Celebs, when people defame you, stop going on social media with rants and threatening assault. SUE them. Also understand that you are a public figure and both under Nigerian and U.S. law, truth is a defense to defamation. In addition, because you are a public figure, there is a higher threshold and legal burden you must meet as a celeb if you sue for defamation. How many times have I said that and gone into the analysis on this blog? In addition, there are so many competent Nigerian entertainment lawyers to help you. I have provided a listing of some of these lawyers in Nigeria; and will share the most recent podcast episodes below of some of these lawyers. Get your lawyers to sue people who defame you. Don’t go around threatening violence. There are consequences for doing that.

Further, Wizkid is fast establishing a pattern and practice of violence or threats of violence. This is VERY bad for business and for him. He may be able to get away with it in Nigeria. However, https://godotengine.org/qa/index.php?qa=user&qa_1=pepperhawk0 since he is doing business in the U.S. the next time he threatens someone or actually hits someone on U.S. soil, he may actually be arrested, jailed and if convicted, Linda Ikeji face prison time. This is real stuff not some joke. The legal justice system in California (L.A.) where he now rents property and also spends time will not hear “Linda Ikeji is a gossip,” “Linda Ikeji destroys lives,” etc. Total baloney and no one cares. In front of the eyes of the law, he is another Black man caught on the wrong side of the law. STOP. Think about that.

When I started practicing law over a decade ago, it used to be that I would walk through the halls of justice as a criminal defense attorney and NEVER see a Nigerian. Over the years, that has changed. There are now Yoruba and Ibo interpreters and more of our people locked up. Our boys/men also are locked up often for domestic violence. In addition, criminal threats made on social media in the U.S. will get you arrested. In California and many states in the U.S., the criminal laws governing criminal threats are so broad that even if the threat is not as specific as Wizkid’s, you can still get arrested and possibly convicted and jailed. The threats can also be charged as a felony or misdemeanor i.e. a wobbler, depending on how the D.A. maybe feeling the facts lend themselves. This is a fact.

On the celebrity end, we have seen our celebs show up on U.S. soil and almost get into trouble with the law. The likes of Timaya come to mind with the whole allegation of rape in Atlanta where a police report was actually filed against him. As a music community, we keep getting closer and closer to knocking on the doors of the criminal justice system as we continue to attempt to expand our music to reach the global masses. Our industry in many ways, from drugs to all other forms of substance abuse, sexual assault and violence, is closely mirroring those we try to emulate in the west. With our continued crossover to the states and other western countries, it is only a matter of time when the revolving doors of the prison system open up and say, “thank you very much we will take the Nigerian artist also.”

If we say we care and love our artists as much as we claim we do, then we must get them and Linda Ikeji those that manage them to see the big picture. Get out of your feelings and wear an objective hat. Next time, Wizkid’s name may make global headlines and for the wrong reason i.e. for assault on a woman or man in the U.S. or elsewhere. When that happens, what are you going to do then? You had the chance, https://www.transtats.bts.gov/exit.asp?url=https://telegra.ph/Reasons-Sholaye-Jeremi-Dump-Linda-Ikeji-For-Elohor-Aisen-09-03 now, on your own turf to help him but you focused on his collabos with Drake or rising global popularity and ignored the destructive personal habits he keeps engaging in. From visible substance abuse that has been shared on social media, to his public baby mama dramas (including creating baby mama drama on U.S. soil in Atlanta) to threatening violence not once but twice on others, and actual physical violence on a fellow artist, the list goes on.

If you care and love Wizkid’s music, or any of our artists, Linda Ikeji then you should have a problem with Wizkid condoning violence of any kind whether as a “joke” or real. It shouldn’t matter who the subject is or how much you hate the person he is targeting. This is not about Linda Ikeji. It is about our industry, our people and our nation. Let’s wear our objective hats and www.bsaa.edu.ru not let hatred for one person blind us from seeing the bigger picture.

Longtime followers of my work in general know I call these things before they happen and they eventually do. Read, reflect and for Wizkid’s advisors, I am telling you now. You need to rein the walking liability that is Wizkid in. If you don’t, I guarantee you it is only a matter of time before it all blows up in your faces.
My 50kobo for all it’s worth, and it’s worth a whole lot.

-Ms.Uduak

Linda Ikeji’s Statement Regarding Resolution of Wizkid Matter

“So, I am going to write about this Wizkid matter for the very last time. Anything else after this will no longer concern me. So Wizkid and I met with the Commissioner of Police today and when the Commissioner asked me what I wanted them to do with the case…I told him that I wanted peace. And the reason why I insisted on peace and not to drag the matter further i.e go to court, is because Wizkid and his lawyers have been apologizing since Friday, up until today!

I spoke with Wizkid through his lawyer on Friday April 15th where he tendered an apology to me and said he wasn’t a violent person, that he didn’t mean what he said, that it was just an emotional outburst. And then he asked for forgiveness. Please continue…

But despite forgiving him, he still had to show up at the Police HQ to officially apologize and write an undertaken which he did today.

I see a lot of negativity has come out of this case with Wizkid – with many folks bashing me for reporting a threat on my person. But here’s my consolation and why I am glad this happened. I promise you, especially the ladies, Wizkid will never threaten you with harm again. At least not in public. I believe I am the last bus stop. He will think twice before threatening another human being again on social media. A police file has been opened for him, and he has been cautioned. The day he threatens another human being again with harm, then…

Having said that, I turned down taking a photo with him and the police commissioner this afternoon. One of his people took a pic of him and the commissioner with me in it and my people insisted they delete it. Not because I haven’t forgiven him, I just don’t need the extra drama.
I wish Wizkid all the best and will continue to celebrate him.

God bless us all.”

Something I never thought I could make money from.” Linda Ikeji has over the years, managed to carve a niche for herself as a blogger extraordinaire, and also enlightened Nigerians to the business of blogging. What started as a hobby for her is today valued to be worth N1.1Billion. Having been a model for eight years, Linda attempted a career in journalism, but this did little for her livelihood. Linda developed an interest for, and started blogging after reading a story of herself on BellaNaija, one of Nigeria’s most popular blogs.

Like most start-up entrepreneurs, Linda Ikeji faced common challenges in the birth of a business; her blog, http://www.lindaikeji.blogspot.com, didn’t garner attention or profit until August 2010, when someone sent her a mail requesting for her advert rate. “I started blogging 2006, and I didn’t start getting that many readers until 2007. I ran the blog for like four years without making money, but August 2010, someone sent me a mail and said can I have your advert rates? And I was like what does that mean? I had to call another friend of mine who was a blogger and I asked him, what’s an advert rate?” she said during an interview on The Juice. Having acquired knowledge of what an advert rate is, Linda Ikeji started off charging paltry sums for adverts broadcast on her blog until a company offered her a huge proposal for an advert. Then it dawned on her what great business opportunity lay in her hobby – blogging. Now she charges up to $8000 a month, for specific ad spaces on her blog, handling PR services to the most premium brands in Nigeria and even for government agencies. This is in recognition of the amount of followership her blog commands, both within Nigeria and the Diaspora. Linda Ikeji ad rates Linda’s blog has become a one-stop for many Nigerians to get first-hand information, as well as a content provider for other blogs.

Through her Blog, she has become a voice for social change, making impact to the lives of several Nigerians and Africans in General. In 2012, she published a story of a 19-year-old girl, Blessing Effiong, who was unlawfully detained for four years. Linda also went ahead to get Miss Effiong out of prison, with the help of a few influential friends. As an activist, Linda has consistently called for justice on the case of the gruesome ‘ALUU4’ murder, a tragic case of the brutal killing of four undergraduate students of the University of Port-Harcourt. The young men were killed on the 5th of October 2012, by a mob of villagers and local vigilante over an alleged theft case. On the 5th day of every month, Linda Ikeji puts up a reminder on her blog that Justice is yet to be served for the death of those young men.

Her latest post on the 5th of February reads, “RIP to the sons, brothers and friends we lost on October 5, 2012, in the Aluu community of Rivers state. Still no justice! Still we wait!” Linda Ikeji is also involved in several philanthropic activities. Last year, she donated the sum of N1Million at the Future Awards, to fight the Ebola disease which ravaged some West-African countries for most of the second half of last year. In her words, “I want to give back to the society. I feel like I am 10 per cent done, I haven’t done 90 per cent. That’s the way I feel. Hopefully in another 2 years, I will accomplish another 40 to 60 per cent. Before I turn 40, ultimately I would have accomplished 100 per cent,” she said in a recent interview. Kind and generous, her spontaneous Linda Ikeji Blog (LIB) Giveaway, where she doles out cash and other gift items to her teaming fans, is something her visitors look forward to. Linda is dubbed the ‘Queen of controversy’, since her business thrives on the broadcast of controversial stories. She has had run-ins with celebrities, and the law.

Not too long ago, her blog was shut down by Google on a report of Intellectual Property Theft and Plagiarism. When contacted on the deletion of the blog, Google’s Communication and Public Affairs Manager for Anglo-West Africa, Kola Ogunlade, released a statement at the time, saying “Google is dedicated to offering users the best possible experience across our products. We take violations of policies very seriously as such activities diminish the experience for our users. When we are notified of the existence of content that may violate our Terms of Service, we act quickly to review it and determine whether it actually violates our policies. If we determine that it does, we remove it immediately.”

Though her blog has since been restored, the infamous shutdown served as an indicator of how much influence Linda Ikeji wields and how much her blog meant to the average Nigerian and African. While it felt like good news to her rivals who saw the incident as an opportunity to dethrone the queen of Nigeria’s information cyberspace, she also had a large number of supporters who stood solidly behind her through that trying time. Linda Ikeji got back on cyberspace, bigger and better. Learning from the unfortunate incident, she has employed professional hands, owing to the visible changes on how posts are updated on the blog. And the attention paid to the authenticity of stories, as well as giving due credits to outsourced information.

Today her blog is number one news content blog in Nigeria; it is ranked at the 13th position on Alexa.com. Through a combination of hard-work, consistency, innovative thinking, and creativity, Linda has over the years been able to prove that there are viable business opportunities around us. She is a member of the prestigious Future Awards Alumni. In 2012, she won the award for Young Personality of the Year, and in 2014, she copped a double as Outstanding Blogger of The Year and Best Gossip & Gist Blog at the Media Broad Awards.
