Linda Ikeji is without an ounce of doubt Nigeria’s most successful blogger and she continues to maintain her position unchallenged. Linda Ikeji didn’t get to the level she is right now without some form of drama or confrontations from celebrities over stories they feel was wrong for her to post without confirming or just clear grievances from comments emanating from her blog readers on her posts.
YBNL boss, Olamide Adedeji and Linda Ikeji went out against each other in 2014 when the blogger posted a story about him expecting a baby with longtime girlfriend. The news didn’t go well with Olamide and he decided to call her out, revealing that she doesn’t post his materials but would rather post gossip about him.
The rapper gave Linda Ikeji a stern warning in a series of posts via his Twitter page.
The YBNL boss announced his hatred for the top blogger in 2014 when Ikeji posted a story of the rapper expecting a baby from his longtime girlfriend. Olamide did not like this news at all. He went on Twitter and went in on Linda Ikeji hard.
Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo and Linda Ikeji fell out 2012 when she revealed that he built a multi-million naira mansion home which cost N250million and the reports didn’t go well with the actor turned politican.
Richard Mofe-Damijo decided to respond to her and wrote this below:
It has been brought to my attention that one Linda Ikeji character who I understand is a gossip has put up a story about my N250m (ordinarily I will never dignify her type with a response but with the calls, texts & bbms I hv received I’d like to sound a warning to her (Ikeji) to desist from fabricating stories about me & get a life, knowing the worth of a property is not rocket science & If you find a dignified career path & work hard at it you will be too busy & successful to spread unfounded lies about people.
The actor and Linda have since put their beef behind them.
Ayo Balogun popularly known as Wizkid is one of the few celebrities that have had a back to back diss with the blogger. Linda Ikeji’s beef detailed back to a long time ago when she posted some news about the ‘Star Boy’ which clearly didn’t go down with him.
According to Linda Ikeji, the singer wanted to have a meeting with her over how he doesn’t like that she posts news that affects his brand to the world, Linda Ikeji said she denied the meeting with him and he has not been cool with her since then.
The two fell out again as Linda posted an exclusive story about how he was about to get kicked out of his Lekki home, which he claimed to own, but Linda revealed it was a lie. The singer went on to bash her and call her old and ugly and more. Linda clapped hard back at him by calling him little while spilling more dirty secrets about him.
