“I cannot marry a poor man, I can afford to buy my banana Island mansion twice” – Linda Ikeji tells it all in new interview

Linda Ifeoma Ikeji is the famous blogger Nigerians don’t get tired of talking about. Presently, She is regarded as Nigeria’s Queen of blog and now she is revolutionizing blogging as she recently launched her ultramodern social media, Linda Ikeji Social.

In this interview with Ifeoma Ononye, she speaks on why people believe she took money from Dasuki, her real age and top three qualities her would-be-husband must possess.


Can you tell us about Linda Ikeji Social (LIS)?
The unique platform Linda Ikeji Social represents a revolutionary innovation in not just news reporting but also in facilitating social interaction. LIS creates a virtual meeting place that combines the dissemination of news as well as enabling social connection and interaction.

LIS came up as a result of feedback from the blog that people need a platform where they can not only get breaking news, but express their positions on issues as it affects their world. They can also interact and connect with friends as well as get all other important information about products and services around the world. LIS is like online blog and facebook rolled into one.

News sharing is tied to what we do every day on social media. We all have a responsibility to share things we witness that we feel could bring about change in society.

It’s a platform where you can land the home page from anywhere you are navigating from, view notification and messages and also you can submit your story and get paid, as well as make money while networking. I encourage people to sign up on the platform. I dream of being the Oprah Winfrey of Africa.

How has the journey been so far, from when you were hustling for modeling jobs to becoming a social media mogul?
The journey has been amazing. I didn’t expect to be here today. When I started hustling back then for modeling jobs, the first thing I came across back then was blogging before Facebook, Twitter, Instagram became known and popular. To be honest, when I started my blogging in November 26, 2006, the last thing in my mind was that it is going to change my life as much as it has. It was just a place for me to be creative because I love to write. I didn’t think that five years from then that all these would happen. I didn’t envision that I was going to come this far. It has been an amazing journey and definitely something that I am grateful for. Everyone is on social media but not everyone can say that it has changed their lives so much. I am grateful to God for how far I have come with his help.

Back then, blogging was not that popular, what exactly attracted you to it?
At first, I didn’t know there was anything called blogging. I never heard of it back then. At the time I was a model and kind of people knew me. I was a little popular in my own way. So Bellanaija wrote about me and my friend in United Kingdom sent me the link to the story. So I went to read the story online and that was my first encounter with blogging. Before then, the only thing I do online was just to check my email and that was it. I read the comment and it was a beautiful experience for me. I went back to Bellanaija the next day to read other stories. I was going to Bella’s blog for four months and I discovered other blogs. I enjoyed the whole experience because I loved to write. That has always been my passion. While growing up I wanted to be a journalist. Then one day I told myself that I can as well start mine since I liked the blogs so much. It took three minutes to start a blog and that was how I started blogging.

Some may want to know at what point that Linda Ikeji blog started paying off?
When you are passionate about something, you put your all in it and that was what I did. I started blogging consistently and passionately until 2010. It never occurred to me that I have built a lot of followership in that time and brands were watching. By the end of 2010, I had thousands of people following me and I never knew it would translate to money. The first time a company approached me to pay to post something, I found it very strange. I didn’t know that people like Bellanaija and Sahara reporters were charging. I had to ask a friend to send me an advert rate. It was in January 2011 that I had my own advert rate and I started sending it out to people. By February, people started paying me and since then, it’s been great.

Between the time you started and when you started getting paid, was there a time you wanted to give up?
Yes there were many times, I wanted to give up. I had bad times back then but the worst was in September 19, 2010. It was my 30th birthday. I was broke, I was angry because I have been done doing modeling in a long time. I was still struggling, I was still borrowing money, I was depressed because I felt like a failure. I will cry and cry but will still open my laptop and blog. I didn’t know that my breakthrough was at the corner and that God was leading me to it. After my 30th birthday, my life practically changed.

You have blogged a lot of news; positive, negative and controversial especially about artistes. For example Wizkid, what is your relationship with them?

I don’t want to talk about Wizkid. I have a cordial relationship with a lot of entertainers. I have had run-ins with a few of them but in recent times, I haven’t. It was when I was a bit carefree and careless with the stories I write. In a year now, I have not had any big issue with anybody.

How do you handle it when they threaten to sue you?
The only person I have threatened was wizkid. Their threat does not scare me because I believe I do more good for them than bad. And they acknowledge that. Some of them are my friends. Some of them have been to my house, some of them are on my WhatsApp chat. The negativity that comes with blogging is fine. I mean, it’s blogging, you write about people. Some people may take offense; some will react in different ways. I have been doing this for ten years and if by now I am not used to back lash, then I should get out of the business.

If you are asked what you make in a year, what will you say?
I cannot tell you what I make in a year.

Many are speculating that Linda is the richest blogger in Nigeria, how true is that?
About being the richest blogger in Nigeria, I will probably agree. Why I agree is because I talk with a lot of clients and advert agencies and they say that when they bring out an online plan for advertisers, 98% of them choose me. That means 98% of people who advertise online, advertise on my blog. They choose me and others. So I think in all honesty and modesty, I make more money than most. Not more than Punch and Vanguard but regular blogs.

In terms of your news reporting, what lessons have you learnt from your blogging experience?
It has thought me to be careful because as much as you think that you know, there are people who have in-depth knowledge of the story. Sometimes I put up a story and I read comments, from the comments, I go back to make some corrections because there are people who experienced it firsthand. I have also learnt that is important to verify your stories because basically if people rely on your site for information and you mess up a few times, they will not trust your news anymore and they go to other credible sites. And when they go, your advertisers go.

From the feedback you get, do you feel loved or hate?
It is a combination of both. I try as much as possible to hold onto the love and don’t pay attention to the hate. I have grown a thick skin to when people say vile things about me. I just laugh over it because they don’t know me. I mean if Wizkid and Olamide are tongue lashing me because of the story I wrote about them, I can understand that but if I have never written about you and you say vile things about me, I take it that the hate is coming from somewhere that is not my fault. Maybe you are angry about your situation or I remind you of something that you wish you had but you didn’t. I have been there. I have been in a situation where I was angry at people that are successful. I understand that success comes with a lot of hate. I pay more attention to people that say I inspire them.

Have you lost any valuable friendship because of what you do?
No, not really.

What about the time people said that you took money from Dasuki?
I didn’t make a big deal out of the Dasuki issue because it was overwhelming. A friend called me and told me to calm down. I mean, I bought a house on Banana Island for half a billion; people cannot wrap their mind around it. So they will assume you got it from somewhere else. Up until the news broke about Dasuki, I have never heard of him. I never dealt with anyone. I never collected money from anyone. The money I collected was PDP and APC for adverts. It was a few millions. I know that I am not guilty of anything, if not EFCC would have put me in their custody. So when I hear such stories, I can understand where they are coming from. They don’t understand how online blog can give me such money but those who deal online will tell you that I can afford to buy that house twice.

When you get married, what will happen to that house in Banana Island?
I will move to the man’s house. As long it is not a three bedroom flat in lekki. My parents will be there.

You are transforming from a blogger into a full media owner, don’t you think you are taking on quite too much, why not take it a little bit at a time?
I have been a blogger for ten years, I am bored, I want to do something else. I am 36, this is the time I have the energy and passion to run this. I delegate, I have staff now. I have over 30 people that work here so they are the ones running all of these. I don’t limit myself at all. I believe there is absolutely nothing I cannot do. I get like six hours a day. I sleep five hours in the night.

People believe you don’t write negative stories about your friends?
That is not true. If I write negative stories about people, I won’t be here talking. I will be hiding somewhere because I get a lot of stories. I would rather they take a picture with me when they see me than threaten me. I make money from writing positive stories so why should I concentrate on negative stories.

You released a video on your birthday talking about some personal stuff, what influenced that?
It’s now that I want to marry. I didn’t want to marry earlier. I just got emotional a bit and it was my birthday and I just wanted to get things off my chest. It was my birthday as I wished I was married.

But do you get proposals? Back then and now, how are the proposals coming?
I have always had proposals. People say when a woman is successful, men run away, it’s a lie. That is when they chase you the more but unfortunately, I have not seen what I am looking for. Men are not scarce. It is the type of men that I am looking for that is scarce. I want a man that I can look up to. I want someone that inspires me. I want a man that will push me to achieve more. I want someone who has achieved some success in his own career. Someone I can learn from. I am inspired by successful people. I can’t wait to meet someone like Tyler Perry.

So you cannot marry a poor guy?
No I cannot marry a poor man. He does not have to be overly rich but he must be successful in his own career. When I was 30, my standards were very high. I was so focused on work. I have been so ambitious. I was not focused on marriage and kids because I know that would draw me back. It is just recently that I told myself that ‘Linda, you are 36, four years to 40. What are you doing?’ At 30, I had a long list of how I want my would-be-husband to be. When I turned 35, I reviewed the list and not, there are only three options on the list. My top three: A good man; successful and a man that will not stifle me or stop me from what I am doing presently, because I cannot be stifled. A man that is carrying and sexy. He also must be good in the bedroom.

What about the part where people say that you are 46 and not 36 years old? Why do you feel comfortable to talk about your age unlike many women?
It is very simple to tell anyone’s age. I mean, once you tell me the year you finished secondary school, I can tell your age. I finished secondary school in 1997 from Lagos Anglican Girls Grammar school. I was 16 going on 17. If I am 46 then I finished secondary school in the 80’s. The following year 1998, I entered university of Lagos.

  17. It’s more understandable that she havent seen her choice of man.. Its evident most of these female Linda critizers are all talking out of envy. In what way is Linda even showing pride? Is she proud for saying what she wants in a man? Its very funny how African women idolize marriage like its the greatest acheivement in a woman’s life . No wonder most of them rush and end up with wrong men

    • Remember marriage is not achievement ohh be wear so you won’t rush in and rush out.

There are pretty sexy young ladies out there that I will put smile on their faces, trip around the world and enjoy my life peacefully. Then age with her, she better open her eyes now because she is not the only rich Nigerian Woman . There are lots of women making millions in hard currency daily and still married to their husbands and maintain their family. So Linda just shut the fork up and be sorry for your ass cause u are out dated old cargo trying to cut her age to look young but men are smart and can see your age when they look at you.

Someone said marriage is not the climax of achievement in a woman’s life. Really? ? OK let me ask: Linda has money, fame and all in astronomic level. What else do u think she needs now? To own a nation? If marriage isn’t on her list, why does she talk about a man anyway? She should just bloody be a Nun! U are not yet “responsible” at such a prime age if u not under a man! Shikena!

    • Mercy omoye u dnt just get d gist, na xo xo jealousy u dey shout. Jimoh has said it all, ure talking as if marriage isn’t important

    • Mercy Omoye Maxwell ur renditions are below expectation, honestly. Who talked about waiting for a lady that will marry a dude, poor? Totally off course! Is it a lady that marries a man in this our cultural society? Some of us may not be stupendously rich but we thank God for being comfortable with a decent partner. Dunno who is jealous of Linda or u ooo. Please wait till ur 3rd decade before talking about marriage. I guess u r still quite young and u owe no value to marriage. Ask the likes of Aunty Joke Silva and Omotola Jalade what success really is. I wish u well.

    • Mercy Omoye Maxwell you the only girl that have been commenting like someone who needs rehab, read all the rubbish u are typing, well, I don’t blame you, when you get towards 36, don’t marry, some infants just be typing rubbish!

  24. Whats wrong with dis linda,she thinks everything is about money fa,pple like her usuall end up marrying the wrong man

  25. we criticize or praise people bcos we don’t know them in person… let’s assume she has helped you, you, you and you before… what will be your comment

    • Well, if she had helped me before, I will advice her like my sister to lower her pride and marry for love and not money since she has got money already. She can be happily married to an average man who does not have twice of her money but is OK and provide for basic things for his family. Not all men out there are gold diggers, ur attitude to ur spouse will determine how u will be treated. Just let her humble herself and the best man will come her way, be it a wealthy one or an average man

    Until then,keep licking d banana in ur island

  32. U most be a joker,by the time u turn 40yrs nd both rich nd de poor cease frm coming 2 u there u will realise ur mistake beside de money u are havin is frm God nd u didnt knw wat wil happen in future

  33. O girl ur brain dull o

  34. ,than u will remain single all ur life bitch, because bni poor is not a disease and bni rich is God doing nt by any humans doing

  35. This woman, you are too noisy faa. The whole world is waiting to see your man.

  36. I like independent women but there is always a problem with wealthy or successful African women. I have discovered that wealth/success doesn’t go together with African women. Majority of wealthy/successful African women can’t handle wealth and success because it gets into their heads and makes them to become disrespectful and arrogant. In Nigeria, 80% of men are bread winners in their respective families but you hardly see Nigerian men coming out to ridicule their jobless or low income earning wives but in most Nigerian homes where women are bread winners, the whole village, town or streets will hear about it because those women will be ringing it like a bell. Such successful and wealthy women are fond of looking down on their husbands, going to public places like hair salon to tell people how they are shouldering the family problems alone but you won’t hear many men complaining about taking care of their familes alone. When some men avoid wealthy or successful women, it doesn’t mean that such men are intimidated by the wealth and success of those women, they are only doing that to respect themselves and to maintain their honour. I can’t take bullsh*t from any woman just because she is rich or successful. If I have a wealthy girlfriend or wife who treats me like shit, I will calmly walk away, it doesn’t mean that I’m intimidated by her wealth and success.

    • Where is is written dat only men such succeed /be more successful Dan men!!!!!!??

    • Have u seen d way some Africa rich men treat Der wives!!!.. Especially if dey re not established!!!!!

    • Mercy Omoye Maxwell, I never said that success is meant for only men, read my comment again sis. Most rich men treats their wives better even if their wives are not making monies or aiding in the family finances and you won’t hear them coming out to brag about it publicly but most women who are bread winners in their families are fond of coming out in public to let everyone to know that they are the ones providing for their families.

    • Let ’em hear. Tell ’em one more time!

    • Yes plz Tony, tell them

    • Nice one

    • I concur with u

    • U are right

    • You are right, let Linda keep waiting for rich single man, till clock will tick over her

    • Tony Nnaemeka Okoro wen d responsibility of a home is placed on 1 person, it reduces d growth of d home!!!!!!!

    • Mercy Omoye Maxwell, go back to my comment again sis. I didn’t say that there are no men who looks down on their wives, I said that such men are not too many when you compare it to the percentage of women who looks down on their husbands just because they are more successful and weathier than their husbands. Peace.

    • Seriously mercy… You really need to read and understand pls

    • I don’t know Linda b4,…but she sure has re response for her decisions, she not a baby, she educated, successful, hardworking,…. Do u know if she has given a broke guy her heart b4 & It’s was far broken to pieces!!!!…. Dey re some guys dat re broke & heartless!!!!!!… Dey feel ur taken care of dem bcs u want dem to marry u!……1 of my aunt is a kind of person dat believes in growth… So even if she meet a guy broke, as long as she loves d person she will date d guy & try to make dat guy grow!!!!… But dey always use her head, d last 1 she dated b4 she meet her husband, collect… 5m telling her he wants to start up gud establishment!!!.. With prove & everything, unknown to her dat he’s traveling out to meet his wife to be!!!!!!!!!….

    • A man should try his best not to be poor, many girls just want to see ur determined to succeed in life & u love dem not bcs ur broke to date d real girl u want, but u will always love dem broke or not, dem u will see wat a real woman can do to support u!!!!!

    • If u succeed it to ur GLORY, ur woman will only benefit from u!!!!….if a woman is successful Is to her glory too, her man will only benefit from it!!

    • Mercy Omoye Maxwell, I’m sorry about the sad experiences of your aunt in her past relationships but her case is quite different from Linda’s case. Your aunt was scammed with love but Linda is disrespectful and fond of bragging and ridiculing people just because she feels that she is successful. If someone is poor, it doesn’t mean that he or she didn’t try his or her best. Some people are not just lucky no matter how hardworking they are. Nigerian men are the most hardworking in Africa or even in the whole world, it’s ridiculous to assume that people are poor because they didn’t work hard. Linda might be successful and rich now but she is arrogant. She should bear in mind that some women have already built mansions in Banana Island and are worth more than her total networth even before she thought about buying land in Banana Island and building her mansion there. If you make it before others, please stay humble and bear in mind that you succeeded not because you are more hardworking than others.

    • No!!!!!.. Linda may have gone throw her own experience!!!!!

    • I have heard so many stories dat made me cry, but I can’t start sayn it her Cox.. U go read tiyr ??????…

    • Do u know dat many guys can’t date a broke girls ?????????

    • My friend meet a guy, he were friends for a week, she talk him she not from a rich family & she’s selling phone accessories on roadside on d floor early morning business…. ?????Omo guy move!!!!!! ????????he told her dat she’s not her standard ?????& dat wat will his friends & parents think of him if he told dem dat dis is my girlfriend!!!…. She think of her life dat day?????????????????????????????????so if she now bcs successful tomorrow & now say no broke needed in my life…. People will start talking ???????????

    • Tony Nnaemeka Okoro u saying women has d highest percentage is wrong to me.. Dats wat am saying

    • Really… “Everybody can not be rich!!!”.. Says who!!!!!! Everybody can be rich, we all have different time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!God has deposited in every human being all d requirements we need to prosper!!!! Genesis 1:26-31,Deuteronomy 7:12-15,Deuteronomy 11:1-32,Jude 1:20(use different translations for better study) ..dont be happy, comfortable wen people call u poor.. !!!!!.. It’s not humility.. It’s ignorance!!!!! ! Don’t take it even as a joke!!! Reject it!!!!! No matter ur situation!!!!! Don’t let ur situation define u!!!!!! Wen someone call u poor say to dem joyfully “I may not be rich now, but I’ll be very soon” & do all it takes to make sure it happens!! PHYSICALLY by following D LORD’S PRINCIPLES for PROSPERITY, be hardworking, faithful, patient …. Do not define ur journey by other people’s negative experience in life,.. Focus on wat God as said concerning u in his words!!!!! everything has time & seasons, even d moon, sun, stars, rain do!!! Genesis 1:14-16….Remember d same water dat destroyed d evil people was d same water dat sustained Noah & his family !!!!!!

    • Mercy Omoye Maxwell, you are getting this argument wrong sis. My argument is about wealthy and successful women who goes about telling people that they are the bread winners in their marriages or relationships so as to humiliate their husbands or boyfriends. The argument you are raising now goes two ways. Haven’t you seen women who left their boyfriends after the guys might have invested so much in improving those ladies lives?.

    • Yea… I agree with u on dat, dats y I said it’s in both gender…. Watever u do for some1 u love should be between u both…. Der weakness should be kept as ur secret & not as a weapon against dem & u should be each other’s strength in ur areas in weakness….. But am saying.. Saying women do d announcement d most is wrong, coz some don’t broadcast it in public, but frustrate d person with it in private…..

    • Hmmm u are ryt Tony Nnaemeka Okoro but it seems ur comment doesn’t go down well with Mercy Omoye Maxwell n I don’t know y she doesn’t want to understand. May b she is among the few women who support this Linda girl who thinks life is all Abt riches

    • I support success for myself & my husband!!!

    • Am not against wat Tony Nnaemeka Okoro said, am only again saying it’s in both gender….. No gender is higher

  37. Linda ikeji pls marry ur banana mansion twice, and give ur banana mansion imaginary kids, let’s see road… It’s when u realise that u don’t have a child at 40, you go understand…. By the time I’m that age my daughter would be 19, and I’m so proud of it,thats something to brag about, not money and material things that God gave to you that he alone can take away whenever he wants and their nothing you can do about it… All you do is brag and brag and show off this and that… Can’t you be a role model to the younger generation, can’t you be a mother, can’t you make impacts in the lives of people…. What is it sev ahn ahn, I’m not talking out of jealousy… I hate people who boast, it’s very annoying

  38. Robbie Hood says:

    Tell your aunty we have heard oooo.. So till now she has not seen any rich man? Untop the many big bosses there in her banana island, even monkey sef she no see? Some folks will now paint greed & call it standard class bullsh*t! It’s OK oo let her be saying she hasn’t seen her choice dia, until she will have no Choice again! How much she think say she get sef wey she no wan let us hear word at her injury time age!!! Abeg e! We go see the rich man soon nao! She thinks money is everything when it comes to marriage! I guess she has forgotten a woman is like a flower that will fade out someday & everyone will put their attention on the new flowers coming up in the garden! I sorry sorry sorry o *in fela’s voice* God help her sha! Quite a hardworking lady I must commend her for that!

Go n think abt how to handle ur rlatnshp n ask God to bring u a man that isn’t coming for ur wealth but love. C as far as am concern money x never enof u c rich men stl going out to mk more money,there is a possibility that d so wished rich man may stl b cmn for ur wealth to add to his own or even to mk d name of being ur huby n goes out wt some gals outside marriage. My dear u don’t need to announce it to d media but to God, he x d only one who can give u d type of man that suites u if only u wud put whatever tin u tnk u v acquired n tell him may his will b done,that’s wen he will kn that this lady x ready for married. I rest my case….

  64. Harry Ogbu says:

    I dunno why u ppl are slaying her.. Its her life, her choices.

    Whether u agree or not, every lady has a preference on who they r to marry.. Some ladies will never a dwarf, some won’t marry a man from a particular ethnic group. Saying she won’t marry a poor man is her choice, just like some ladies will detest a dwarf or deaf man..

    All Choices..

  97. Endy Kash says:

    It’s not only the men who have the right or capacity to chose the kind of woman they want for a wife, ladies also got the right. I think she has made it abundantly clear the kind of man she wants for a husband, so on no account should anyone look at it as pride.
