"Too Rich To Buy Fake"- Linda Ikeji Is Not Here For Your Shade!

Last night I got to watch this drama unfold on Instagram. It's turning out to be a pretty exciting year and I'm almost too scared yet too excited about what might happen next. 

So basically, although I know you already have the scoop, Linda posted pictures of two new Hermés Birkin bags she just acquired. Someone called her out saying its fake, tagged Hermés on Instagram asking if it is, Hermés then confirmed that it's indeed fake (although there's a lot of speculation as to whether that response was really from Hermés...). Then Linda kinda lost it, dropped all "let's keep it classy" and blogging for a bit, and then went all in to prove the authenticity of her purchases which run into several millions of naira. 

A lot of people seem to think that Linda should have just ignored the trolls and be silent, I kinda feel like each attempt to prove the originality she made herself less likable with each post. But then again if you actually spent that much you're bound to go HAM on anyone who dares call them fakes!

Can't say I blame her...


  1. I read about this "1000 shades of Birkin/Linda instagram drama" everywhere but LINDAIKEJI.BLOGSPOT.COM.

    She conveniently left out his great achievement of hers on her blog.Why didn't she come out as usual to regale us with stories of hard work that tickles the punani?

  2. Vanity upon Vanity.. is it necessary telling the public what you can afford? they need God more.

  3. iM not shocked
    been off LIB for a while now
    her pride will so be her fall.....

    1. Fuck you guys. Your so called respect for her doesn't matter. You sling insults around and expect her not to react like a normal human being. Piss off! Fucking losers.

  4. I still love Linda. And I can still marry her.

    She is coming out of her shell. But really, how can someone spend plenty money and somebody will just come and say its fake. For what???!!!

    Linda was just catching trips.

    Holla at me Linda baby *Mwah! I gat love for ya!


    1. Like someone implied on SM: "if Dangote bought say a 9ja version of Polo shirt, and you call him out, he will now leave his multibillion business and be explaining to you the intricacies of his recent designers purchase?" Okoro...

    2. Memphis... I'm reasoning with you on this.

      I've always thought Linda is cheap. As the saying goes, you can remove the lady from the ghetto but u can't remove the ghetto from the lady.

  5. Miss humble indeed. Mtcheeeeeeew.

  6. I cannot feign surprise at the cost of the bag and the fact that some individuals can go miles in ostentation. But then, let's evaluate this: How sure are we that Linda was not 'Dasukied'? #Justsaying

  7. Her response made her less likeable by her fans. She should've kept quiet instead of replying people that don't even know the difference btw real n fake. She brought herself low..Shouldn't have done this to herself.

  8. Truth is....whether she responded or not, those who hate her will still hate her. I support her actions though. Sometimes it's not wise to sit down and allow haters and tatafos to make a ridicule of your hardwork. The cost is expensive but it is her money. Nobody has any right to tell her not to buy what tickles her fancy.
    She worked for it.
    She deserves it.
    She owes no body no explanation for her behaviour.

    Next time, tatafos would think twice before going on a haters spree.


    1. Oh so you actually think she won? Lol

    2. Exactly! First time I was sent d link wen she recently bought d bag, I gave a long hiss and almost screamed vanity! But reading ds now, I can't even blame her. Obviously she was just catching her trips from d whole ish and den proving urslf sometimes doesn't mean u're cheap or low whatever.

      Oh well! Wat do I know?

  9. Her money her business.Any business that thrives on people hating will boom in Nigeria. She can clearly afford the bag so I'm amazed how people are going on and on to prove it's fake.

    Linda likes to show off so why are people acting like it is strange. It's like acting surprised when Mayweather flaunts his stuff.
    2016 is a very hard year so you can imagine my shock whenever I step into an office and they are discussing Linda's bag, even married men like WTH. SMH J

  10. its okay she called them out though she went too far bragging plus why say you bought them in UK and u giving us USD price instead of GBP? vanity upon vanity! even if i have that kind of money i doubt id buy such maybe a wristwatch. lol! but hey Never say Never.

    1. I wonder. And she was using exchange rate in the parallel market to overblow the price. Sigh*

    2. So you think you cannot pay for stuff in the UK with dollars? Please if you don't travel out of Nigeria regularly don't say what you don't know.

    3. hehehe! all this Anonymous people, i need to get me an handle quickly, do you know if i reside in naija???? ud walk into a shop in the UK and have their goods tagged in dollars? illuminate me please.

  11. I am so with linda on this, what insolence! who authorized the critics? please let us be rational here mbok, who wouldn't try to make a point to haters, especially when you are sure of your purchase.

    It is her life, her cash and her IG page, so she reserves the rights to live it.

  12. Well she always called out other people for carrying fake bags, so why should she be any different? Since she likes showing off, she should have posted the receipts like she always does, instead of the long stories.

  13. 2016 is so filled with drama. Who wants to join me to sip my tea?

  14. Silence is the best answer. I wonder why she lost it.

    Need adventure or some spice in your everyday life? Get into a world different from the usual. Be the observer as events unfold before your eyes. Feel the intrigue, romance, suspense, betrayal and love.

  15. Now dis is toomuch!!! Nawao linda has also taken over from Laura??? Am a very big fan but really am disappointed. He just behaved like a learner naah, people have been hating eva since. She lost it dis tym!

  16. The way I understand this, Linda is simply advertising a bag for someone who wants to sell Birkin bags! We all have a friend who has bags, shoes and clothes for sale. Sometimes, these friends visit with lots of merchandise and want to take clear pictures. Kini big deal?

  17. Another sad aspect to this story is that some young girls who look up to Linda will believe this, and start trying to buy bags they cannot afford - just for the instagram pic

  18. Some folks buy fake without realising they are buying fake. If you want to show off ur goods on social media - be ready for the criticism. I believe thats what happened in this case. Being able to afford something from a financial standpoint doesnt mean you know when you are being sold fake or original. Many people cant tell the difference between grade A fake and original so the smarter folks only buy from flagship stores to save themselves from stories that touch.

    Linda and her crew have shown receipts and certificates for less expensive bags - she shouldnt have issues doing that for this scenario. She was juped into buying fugazi - she should go after the folks she purchased stuff from.

    1. Spot on! You just literally read my mind...

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
