Ignore Linda Ikeji, #SaveMayowa Is Not A Scam – Family


The family of Mayowa Ahmed has denied claims its fund raiser to fly the University of Lagos graduate abroad for cancer surgery was not a scam.

The family had raised $100,847 via crowdfunding site gofundme.com, backed by popular Nigerians, including actress Toyin Aimakhu.

Additional donations, reportedly running into millions were also received via a bank account provided by her family.

However, on Thursday, Blogger Linda Ikeji reported that the #SaveMayowa campaign was a scam, sparking controversy on the social media.

According to the LIB report, actress Toyin Aimakhu, who played a major role in soliciting funds, had reported the family to the police.

It also claimed that doctors at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital had said that they refused to give the family a referral for treatment abroad as no hospital could save her.

The report divided Nigerians on the social media with some expressing anger and disgust at the family and others criticising the blogger and LUTH for insinuating that the family shouldn’t have pursued further treatment after being informed Mayowa’s cancer was at stage 4.

Amid the controversy, the family issued a statement, insisting that they did not deceive Nigerians and that they had contacted hospitals abroad and were concluding arrangements to fly her abroad for treatment as planned.

In the statement, the Ahmed family explained that it had also contacted Flying Doctors to fly Mayowa to Dubai for treatment, while providing evidence of correspondence with a hospital abroad.

She then added that people should expect something big.

This is actually not the best of times for Celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji, as report says the #IamSelfMade blogger has been slammed with a tax bill of N75million by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).

According to The Capital, a source in the FIRS was quoted to have revealed that the celebrity blogger had for some time, been evading tax payment.

The media outlet reports that the blogger has now been mandated by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to pay the money into the agency’s coffers.

How We Ended The War Between Linda Ikeji And Wizkid – Police

The Nigerian police have come out to reveal how they have possibly ended the rift between superstar singer Wizkid and mega blogger Linda Ikeji.

The police claimed they used Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) a form of justice dispensation that involves dialogue between two or more parties involved in a suit.

The Singer had threatened Linda Ikeji, stating that he’d get his 16-year-old brother to beat the blogger up. Linda didn’t take this lightly and promtly dragged Wizkid to the police.

According to Lagos Police PRO, Dolapo Badmos, when the police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni  called the feuding celebrities, Wizkid denied he really wanted to harm Linda.

He said his statement about his brother beating Linda up, was written out of anger and emotion and there was nothing else to it.

While Wizkid’s outburst was criminal in nature, the use of ADR has made litigation redundant.

Badmos said that the matter has been settled and both parties were satisfied with the outcome. She also said that the decision to resolve the matter was not because of their status in the society but duo to genuine commitment by the parties to resolve the matter and put it behind them.

She said the parties were satisfied with how  CP Fatai Owoseni  handled the matter and forged  peace between them.

Linda Ikeji’s Banana Island Mansion Is A Political Blackmail Gift – Kemi Olunloyo

Kemi Olunloyo, a well-known journalist that took a break from her 25 years profession has discovered an interesting story she is ready to share. She claims that super blogger Linda Ikeji never bought the Banana Island mansion as earlier believed.

According to what she posted on her blog, she claims the mansion was “a blackmail gift from a high ranking politician”.

“#BREAKING @lindaikeji just BLOCKED ME on TWITTER so I will start TALKING now. I only speak the facts! I’m not gonna block this young lady I once helped when her blog was yanked for copyright reasons. I have a lot of dirt on Linda. She’s young enuff to be my kid and I’m more globally prominent at blogging than her. There is no comparison. At 9 pm I will reveal what I know about her and the N240M she allegedly received from #Dasuki. Everybody is acting like mumus on TWITTER writing “popular blogger got N240M from Dasuki” and can’t mention her name. These are huge amounts of cash that has strapped Nigerians broke. Everyone is exposed. Governors, Ministers, Media moguls, newspapers etc now a blogger. Money meant to fight #BokoHaram.

The simple reason there is no price tag to the house is because Linda never purchased her home. It was a blackmail gift from a high ranking politician. If she at least called it a gift, it would have looked nice but to hear from a close source what her sister revealed is very disturbing. Notice how none of her fans even know what the house cost. Linda in a tweet said the house was NOT N450M but N600M. Estimated value in listings showed the house was N550M, something you could look up on the internet. The alleged N242M and the house were separate entities. Pls don’t get confused.

Mrs Kemi revealed via her Twitter account Madam Kemi Olunloyo (@HNNAfrica) today, see the tweet below…

“I have NOT blogged for 5 days cos I have been working on EXPOSING people like Linda Ikeji, Nduka Obaigbena and Raymond Dokpesi #DasukiGate”

There are definitely more revelations to this story, stay with us for more updates…

Linda Ikeji Denies Receiving N240mn, Says She Only Got A Few Millions For Her Contract With APC, PDP

Popular blogger, Linda Ikeji has denied receiving the sum of N240million from the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The blogger was reacting to a blanket statement by a social commentator and activist, Kayode Ogundamisi, who tweeted that a popular female blogger received N240m from Dudufa Waripamo, Special Assistant to Ex-president Jonathan on Domestic Affairs.

Several persons have been arrested in the last few days in connection with money they received from the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, many of which were used for the campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ogundamisi’s tweet quickly went viral with many pointing fingers at Linda Ikeji who recently acquired a mouth watering property running into several hundreds of millions of naira at the Banana Island in Lagos.

But responding to the claim that she could be the person referred to, Linda Ikeji said:

“So, social commentator and activist Kayode Ogundamisi tweeted this today…he didn’t mention any names but I am now trending on Twitter. Many assume he’s talking about me…and you can’t blame them really. He said…popular! I’m somewhat popular! He said female.. I’m female…duh! Lol. He said Lagos…I live in Lagos…in a posh place called Banana Island..lol. ?#?Flipsweave?! ?#?Just? teasing!

So people are reacting and some actually believe it! That PDP or someone in the party gave me N240m? For what? Advert? This was why I didn’t want to get politics advert money in the first place o…and but then some of you advised that I do when I asked here and now see the gbege that I have entered…lol.

But seriously for the record…no party registered or unregistered, no human being dead or alive gave me N240m for anything. The only advert I did for PDP was a page background take-over for former president Jonathan… and they asked for the space after I did a page background take-over for APC’s Akinwunmi Ambode. (I’m sure you all saw it).

The two parties paid me same amount. I had a politics advert rate which I sent to everyone who wanted to advertise on LIB! And it was a few millions …which some of you followed to chop inside in the giveaway that April…lol. ?#?Kidding?!

Anyway, all these bad belle people looking for ways to bring a woman down…like I always say…you can’t! Except you’re mightier than God! Whether you like it or not, I’m a hardworking young woman who God chose to bless the work of her hand and is using me to bless others. Get over it! I am here to stay! Not going nowhere! *wink*.

Make I go find una more news ojare!”

Buhari, Dangote, Adesina, Linda Ikeji Make Africa’s 100 Most Influential

President Muhammadu Buhari, business mogul, Aliko Dangote, blogger Linda Ikeji and 17 other Nigerians have been named amongst the 100 most influential Africans of 2015.

The list complied by New African Magazine was dominated by Nigeria and South Africa, with 20 and 16 personalities respectively.

Kenya, Uganda and Cameroon also feature strongly with eight, six and six entries each respectively. Of the top 100 personalities, 65 are men and 32 are women, with the other three being groups of people. South Africa’s students, for example, were recognised this year for their role in South Africa’s #FeesMustFall and #Rhodesmustfall campaigns.

The list presents the continent’s definitive power list and profiles the continent’s top game changers in eight different fields: 22 from politics ; four from public office; 21 from arts and culture; 21 from business; 11 from civil society; nine from technology; seven from media, and five from sports.

In one of the continent’s most dramatic and unusual elections of 2015, and Nigeria’s most significant in recent history, Muhammadu Buhari defeated his opponent and incumbent Goodluck Jonathan. Both are recognised in New African. Other Nigerians recognised include the former UN Special Advisor on Post Development Planning, and current minister of Environment, Amina J. Mohammed; AfDB’s new President, Dr Akinwumi Adesina and a surprising addition in the form of Nigerian Diasporan, UK MP, Chuka Umunna, who was in the frame Labour Party leadership.

South Africa also had its fair share of political influencers, among them “the black leader of South Africa’s ‘white’ opposition” party, the DA’s youthful Mmusi Maimane who also makes the list as one to watch during the next elections.

Prominent women making the list are UN Women’s Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka and fellow South African Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, the current chairperson of the AU Commission, widely tipped to be a potential successor to her former husband, President Jacob Zuma.

Liberia’s President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is recognised together with her fellow heads of states, Alpha Conde of Guinea and Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone, for beating the odds to win the war against Ebola in 2015.

African financial giant and Credit Suisse boss, Tidjane Thiam, from Côte d’Ivoire, makes this year’s most influential list for Business and Economy, where he is joined by new World Bank VP and Treasurer, Arunma Otteh, Kenyan ‘DJ’ businessman Chris Kirubi and the entrepreneur and innovator behind Tesla cars, Elon Musk, among others. Nigerian industrialist Aliko Dangote also makes the list.

Also on the list are innovators (Cameroon’s Tonje Bakang), philanthropists (Senegal’s Akon), athletes (Ethiopia’s Almaz Ayana), actors (Zimbabwe’s Danai Gurira and Keyna’s Lupita Nyong’o), writers (Zambia’s Namwali Serpell), cultural and media personalities (Trevor Noah and Linda Ikeji), along with the activists, artists, models, musicians that have made the headlines and shaped opinions during the year.

Revealed: How Linda Ikeji REALLY Rakes In The Billions

Judging by the attitude of some Nigerians to Linda Ikeji’s acquisition of a half a billion Naira home in upscale Banana Island, Ikoyi this week, a lot of people don’t believe she earns her money only from blogging. Several people have started circulating rumours that the Forbes ranked successful blogger makes money from other undisclosed sources.

One particular rumour confidently making the rounds is that Ms. Ikeji got some dirt on a politician and approached him and that the politician compensated her with a N500 million home. The story is as fake as it is unbelievable but Nigerians often need a reason to doubt genuine success, especially when there is a feeling that your success should not pale in comparison.

Whilst there may be some genuine grievances in some corners about when Ms. Ikeji or her more outspoken younger sister brag about high end purchases like thousand dollar shoes and bags, Linda’s intentions are genuine. She is not seeking to stir up envy but trying to help young Nigerian women forge a new path. Traditionally most young women rely on men for even their most basic of needs, Linda’s entrepreneurial success and business acumen help to demonstrate that there is an alternative to the age old tradition of “money for hand and back for ground”.

So how much does Linda really make and how did she move from “Mushin to Mohits” in a sense in just about a decade without joining politics, or sleeping around with politicians.

The Herald in this report has uncovered how Linda really makes her billions.

  1. Google Adsense: According to information at our disposal, Linda Ikeji and bloggers in her bracket (eg. Perez Hilton) typically make $50,000 to $80,000 monthly in income from Google. So that means Linda makes N10 million to N16 million per month in Adsense revenue. Quite a nice chunk of cash from the world’s foremost technology company.
  1. Headline Banners: Linda charges N1 million per month for a 728 by 90 banner ad, the ad that appears around the Welcome To Linda Ikeji Blog placeholder when you log on to the site. Jumia has reportedly paid Linda N12 million for the whole year and their banner ad remains on the desktop version of the site 24/7. Occasionally other advertisers also opt for the space and Linda will share the space for two companies. So this year Linda will probably gross a minimum of N18 million from this space.
  1. Side Banners: Linda charges between 500k and 700k per month for side banners and she has a minimum of 6 to 8 advertisers at any given time bringing her earnings to a minimum of N3 million monthly.
  1. Sponsored Posts: Linda reportedly charges 50,000 per sponsored post and she reportedly does about 5 to 10 of these a day which brings her daily potential earnings in this regard to N500k and monthly total to N15 million. Here is an example of a recent sponsored post on LIB http://www.lindaikejisblog.com/2015/10/martell-300-promo-win-your-very-own.html#more
  1. Page Takeover: Should you log on to the Linda Ikeji blog on a desktop site now, you will notice an MTN advert in the background. Our sources tell us that cost N4 million per week. So potentially Linda makes N16 million monthly from that space.

On an aggregate Linda can make anywhere from N50 million to N 70 million per month in advert revenue. When you do the calculations that comes to a maximum of about N 840 million per year or almost a billion.

Now you see why Laura says her big sis is Linda “Chopping Money” Ikeji. A report from PWC released late last month said the Nigerian media industry is currently valued at $4 billion but projected to grow even bigger by 2019, so it means Linda may be chopping this money for quite a very long time.

The Misunderstood World of Linda Ikeji by Onyeka Nwelue

Linda Ikeji is the most powerful blogger in Africa. 

And the richest!

While this may not be earth-shattering breaking news, as most of us already know or at least probably have an idea about, it is still heart-warming to know that a regular Nigerian girl (yes, she is quite regular) can drag herself from virtually nothing to reach the apex of the blogosphere. It is a truly inspiring tale of rags to riches.

It is also not news that a lot of people dislike Linda Ikeji. They read her blog, they swear by the Gospel of Linda Ikeji Blog, but they dislike her. They dislike her under the usual banner of “there is nothing this person is doing that should make her better than I am.” But she is better than most people because she is different from most people. Linda Ikeji is not some air-headed young lady that leisurely eavesdrops on conversations of the celebrities and the upper class and then shares it with the internet. Linda Ikeji takes blogging more seriously than some medical doctors take medical study. From what I observed when I met her, Linda Ikeji obsesses over her blog like it were piece of art. She dedicates herself so passionately to it that it may seem the blog is a child she nurtures. In a sense, that blog is a child that has grown into a very handsome man.

She told me a story of how Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie had left where she sat and came to her, as a fan, to greet her. “I love what you are doing. I love your blog. My name is Chimamanda Adichie,” she had said to Linda. Linda told me she screamed. She had also nurtured ambitions of meeting Adichie. Now they met, and she didn’t have to jump through any hoops for it to happen.

“Linda Ikeji is a snub.” “Linda Ikeji is this.” “Linda Ikeji is that.” We all have our opinions and perspectives of her. “Linda Ikeji loves money.” Some of us think that, too.

I met Linda Ikeji for the first time at the then Club 10. I was introduced to her by a friend, Ifeanyi Dike. She didn’t snub me. Years later, she could not remember that we met.

Second time, we had agreed to meet at Eko Hotel. We chatted for over 2 hours and went home. She offered to buy me food. I was there when her two smashing sisters – Laura and Sandra – came. I left with a different understanding. It is not her fault that you don’t like her. Some of us can’t deal! 

Nigerian writers don’t like Linda Ikeji. Why? Are they disgruntled? What is their problem? Can I safely say I was part of the group that secretly despised her for no reason? We were angry, because we didn’t understand how she could be doing almost same work as us and then, had effrontery to buy a Range Rover. Some would have said ‘men’ give Miss Ikeji money. I had heard different things about how she makes money.

In Paris, I came closer. I saw. I shook my head. I wept for the world that will never ever meet Linda and continue to judge her from afar. Life is not fair.

One particular evening, in her hotel room, at Hilton, one of the most expensive hotels in Paris, Linda almost grabbed my hair in uncontrolled anxiety, because a post she had made on her blog had disappeared. I didn’t quite understand what the fuss was about, but I picked something: this lady is obsessed with her work and she knows what she is doing. She never plays with her source of income. Linda loves her readers! She claims she doesn’t care – Linda cares too much! She cares too much for everything! Looking back now, in that room, I could say, Linda may not have a very social life, but she has a beautiful life – she has the greatest sisters. They support her. They help her. They share in her joy. And sadness too. 

Do I have her permission to share this story? I am not sure. But she shares a lot of things she is not supposed to, and that is part of her appeal. I’m borrowing a leaf from her playbook.

As she told me, on a certain evening, after returning from one of her numerous shopping sprees, she said: “On my 30th birthday, I had N800 left in my account. I spoke to God.” 

Linda’s story is like a fairy tale, I tell you. It is like, but it is not. She has had her fair share of turmoil, troubles and hustles. She has faced crushing rejection. She went round Lagos looking for sponsors. Some of those she sought for sponsorships in their offices can’t have access to her anymore. Somehow, she disagrees with my assertions that this is vendetta. She is driven by the will to pay back many people, to succeed.

I kept asking myself questions about Linda as we went to the mall to shop. I followed her everywhere. I wanted to understand her very well. Would there be a room to ask her questions? Linda is this, Linda is that! Sorry, Linda is not all these things we have cooked up in our heads because the Linda Ikeji I spent enough time with in Paris is: hardworking, gentle, reserved, careful with words, pays attention to details and doesn’t eat much. She likes chocolate!

I had seen her jump from beneath her duvet and run straight to her blog in the middle of the night. Just to blog! She is disciplined and hardworking! 


Linda is the richest African woman I have met under 40. I have seen! But they are for my eyes, only. I could not stop myself from writing that line!

Now, let me get back to the writers. Linda Ikeji did not just appear from nowhere. Like the rest of us, she had been struggling in the dark city of Lagos, until her wheel of samsara turned. Her tough days prepared her for this glory.

When I started chatting with her via WhatsApp, her profile status said and still says: “I’d Rather Be Self Made.” This will sound funny, but she doesn’t allow people do anything for her. I mustered the courage and asked her to attend the Nollywood Week Paris; saying we would pay for her flight and before I could even add another thing, she asked for the date and said she would love to come, but she would not want us to pay for her. Her honesty and modesty could make you fall in love with her. She said: “Hey. Would love to come. Never been to Paris. Me and my sisters. I’ll take care of the expenses. Flight, hotel, etc.” I paused. This doesn’t happen. She continued, “I don’t travel alone. I hate it. I will take care of myself. I kinda like luxury living when I travel. So, 5 star!”

She booked her First Class flight ticket. She booked herself into Hilton. Linda and her sisters, Laura and Sandra came to Paris!

She shared intimate stories with me and encouraged me to find that one thing that makes me happy, that will also give me money. It is impossible to hang out with Linda and leave without feeling something has been added to your life.

While Sandra and Laura were shying away from eating Nigerian food, Linda wanted it. The last one, I goofed, I got back late with the food and she was not happy, but she ate little and said: “Onyeka, are you not going to eat?” I was going to say no, but then I remembered she had eaten from the plate with those magical fingers, so I said, “I want to eat.”

I took the food and I ate from the same plate where Linda ate from and now, I’m hoping some mystery has been added to my life, too!

Thank you, Linda, for not being what they told me and what I had thought. Thank you, for your realness.

When Nigeria Decides, Nigeria Wins By Linda Thomas-Greenfield Linda

The world takes notice when Nigerians, citizens of Africa’s largest democracy, decide.  By participating peacefully and enthusiastically in the recent electoral processes in March and April, millions of you stood strong to re-affirm Nigeria as a leader for democracy in Africa—and around the world.  It was an honor for me to lead the U.S. observer mission during the presidential and National Assembly elections last month.  Today, I join the chorus congratulating you and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on the April 11 vote, which built upon the earlier successes in March.

Many Nigerians waited for hours, in sun and rain, to cast their ballots and see their votes counted.  When I spoke with voters, I was struck not only by their patience, but also by their determination to show Nigeria’s dedication to democracy and to democratic principles.  Elections are ultimately about people—the volunteers and poll workers who manage polling stations, the party candidates and supporters who craft policies and political platforms, the civil society activists who work for transparency, the journalists who report on the campaigns and events on election day, the political leaders who accept victory or concede defeat, especially when stepping down is in the country’s best interest.  It is about those men and women who shared their stories with me as they stood in line and those members of the security services who remained neutral and vigilantly guarded against fraud and intimidation.  Again, we salute you all.

I especially want to reiterate President Obama’s accolades for INEC Chairman Attahiru Jega.  Under Chairman Jega’s steadfast leadership, the staff of INEC succeeded in conducting a generally smooth electoral process and making improvements between March 28 and April 11.  We commend INEC for its extensive efforts to increase credibility and transparency in the electoral process, including through the use of technology.  Despite some technical glitches, it is clear that technology and use of social media—INEC’s online posting of results for each polling unit, live tweeting of results, the use of biometric permanent voter cards and electronic card readers—improved efficiency and limited fraud.  I encourage Nigeria and other nations to continue to explore the use of relevant technologies in future elections.

This electoral process, however, was not without violence and irregularities in a number of states.  Some individuals worked to undermine the will of the Nigerian people, interfering with electoral processes and resorting to violence and voter intimidation.  We regret any loss of life and destruction of property.  As Secretary Kerry said when he visited Nigeria in January, violence and rigging have no place in democratic elections.  Anyone found to have incited violence or interfered with electoral processes will be unwelcome in the United States and subject to visa sanctions.

When President Obama spoke to you last month, he said successful elections and democratic progress will help Nigeria meet the urgent challenges you face today.  Now more than ever, it is up to all Nigerians to stay united so that Nigeria can move forward with a clear set of priorities for the future.  We welcome the commitments made by both President Jonathan and President-Elect Buhari to work closely together in order to ensure a smooth transition to the new government.

This next phase is critical as the world continues its hopeful watch for what happens in Nigeria.  Indeed, because you showed up, stood in line, and respected the results of elections even when you may have disagreed with the outcome, Nigeria will serve as an example to other African countries and nations elsewhere in the world preparing for elections.  Nigerian democracy will be a beacon across the continent and beyond

With deep appreciation for the long friendship and partnership between our two great countries, the United States looks forward to the inauguration on May 29 and the beginning of a new chapter in our relationship.  We are deeply committed to working with you, the Nigerian people, for many years to come.  Nigeria, you made us all proud!
