TV host Toke Makinwa doesn't think I'm a role model. Urm, OK...:-)

Ghen ghen, fight between Linda Ikeji and Toke Makinwa. Lol. Unfortunately I don't really know who she is...never met her...only seen her Flytime interviews. I hear she's also a radio presenter...and apparently she said on radio recently that I am not a role model...

Here's how Thenetng is reporting it
Popular radio and TV presenter Toke Makinwa has aired her thoughts about popular blogger and former model Linda Ikeji stating she ‘doesn’t think Linda Ikeji is a role model’.
Little known Makinwa who works as a radio presenter on popular urban radio station Rhythm 93.7 dropped her comments on air while she was co-anchoring ‘The Morning Drive’ recently.
I don’t think Linda Ikeji is a role modelShe’s a gossiper, She sells gossip’, Makinwa said on the show and even appealed to her listeners not to take the likes of popular US blogger Perez Hilton and Miss Ikeji seriously.
Well, she's entitled to her opinion. I have nothing against that statement...I understand where she's coming from. Some of the posts hurt people, some help people. It's the media, it's the job I chose. Like every other job, it has its advantages and disadvantages. You win some, you lose some. I get it. I accept it.

It's times like this I almost forget who I am...but then I remember where I'm coming from and I smile. Let me tell you guys a story. Please continue...


It was early 2000, I was 19 years old, in my second year at the University of Lagos. I'd been a model for about a year and a half then. Modeling back then didn't pay a lot. Sometimes you eat, sometimes you can't find food. Sometimes you had money, sometimes you will have to beg for it. I'm not from a rich home. I started struggling since I was 17 to support my family. So I kinda hard a tough life growing up but I kept working, doing all sorts of modeling jobs, ushering, fashion shows, and at one point I sold beer at a hotel. I'd leave lectures, go to a hotel and sell beer from 1pm till 10pm. I did this for a few months. It wasn't easy but I had to survive. One of the things I said to myself back then was, the day I sell my body to a man for money, may God strike me dead. I was determined to make it on my own, never let any man take my dignity. In those days, most young girls had an aristo...I was never one of those girls. I would rather starve or beg for food than give my body to a man for money.

So back to my story. It was early 2000, I hadn't done any modeling jobs in a bit. I didn't have any money in school, hadn't eaten a proper meal in days, there was no money at home...my sister called and asked if I could send money home...didn't have any. I wondered what to do...then I thought of this aristo who had been chasing me for months now...old man...married...rich...in his fifties. I said to myself, why don't you call him and beg him for money. Tell a lie, say you need it to go to the hospital 'cos you're sick or something that desperate. Which was what I did. What he said to me was 'you know I like you. I don't know why you're behaving like a child. You need someone to take care of you blah blah blah'. Eventually he said I should meet him at a hotel. I will never forget that hotel...Ambassadors hotel in Ikoyi. I was apprehensive about going but I was desperate...I said to myself what's the worse that can happen? It's not like he will rape you and there was no way in hell I would sleep with him, so I figured even if he didn't give me the money I asked for, at least he would give me money for transport fare to go back home...that transport fare was what I was looking forward to honestly. I didn't have a dime on me, in fact I borrowed small money from a friend to go to the hotel.

So when I got there, he bought me hotel food (my first real meal in days...:-)) and after I was done eating, he made his move. I shoved him off. He kept trying and I kept pushing him away and after a while he got angry and said something like, why did you come here then? Are you a child? He was angry that I made him pay for a hotel room, spent money on food etc and not give him what he wanted. So he got up to leave...and I told him I didn't have any money to go back to school. If looks could kill, I would have died in that moment he turned to look at me. He left the hotel room, and I followed him. I kept begging and trying to explain to him that I didn't have transport to go back, he didn't say a word to me as he entered his vehicle and drove off.

I stood in front of the hotel wondering how I was going to get back to school. All I had on me was N15. N15 wasn't going to take me from Ikoyi to Akoka. In my plans, I never imagined that I wasn't going to at least get a few thousands from him. I'd seen this guy before...he was a friend's boss. He owned a media business back then and every time I went to see this friend, this man would call me into his office...tell me how pretty I am, how much he likes me and how well he can take care of me. And he always gave me 5k whenever I was ready to leave his office. But this time I was the one who called him...so he must have figured I was ready to give in. We both misunderstood each other, I guess...:-)

Anyway, after standing in front of the hotel for a few minutes, I went back in and saw a young man at the front desk. I explained my situation to him...he was kind enough to give me N100 and that was the money that took me half way home. By the time I got to Yaba, I'd run out of cash, so I trekked from Yaba bus stop to UNILAG Akoka. I remember saying to myself while I was trekking with tears in my eyes, that one day I'm going to make something of myself...every money I make in this world would be my own hard earned money...I don't care how bad it gets, no man is ever going to take away my self respect...that's all I have!

And that's the way I lived. Determined to make it in life. On my own terms. As my own woman. I kept struggling and struggling until God finally blessed me. Now I have more money than I even know what to do with it. I make millions of naira from what I love doing...blogging. The best part of all this is that I would blog for free. Now I don't chase money anymore...it chases me. It's not even just about the money, it's the great friends I've met via this blog, the wonderful people I interact with here, the freebies I get. How much of a big deal I am to some people. How some people see me in person and scream with excitement and want to take photos with me. Sometimes I pinch myself...I almost can't believe this is my life.

Once in a while I think of that 19 year old girl who trekked for miles to school because she would not sell her body and I say to her, we made it, Linda, we made it!

So maybe I'm not a role model in terms of what I do, but I know I'm definitely a role model as a young woman. To all the young girls out there, if you're reading this, you can make it on your own. You don't need to spread your legs for men, you don't need these old married men who just take your glory. You're strong, you're beautiful, there's nothing you can't achieve on your own. God has given you something no one else has. Find what it is and build yourself. Don't worry about what other girls around you have. Dignity is far more valuable than a range rover. Make it in life on your own terms and as your own woman, so that you can look back one day and be proud of who you were and who you are.

I wish every one well in their journey. God bless.
Linda Ikeji

She must be a role model for skin bleachers. She can't even speak english. There is no such word as "gossiper". A person is a Gossip not a gossipper. Carry go Linda darling. She's just jealous. Shiorrrrrrr, shit dey smell.

she is definately not well
you are good role model. at least you are not tarting yourself or prostituting yourself round about time like many of them.
you are important enough for her to give attention so she better shut up.

Now, honestly, this is the best post I've ever read on your blog Linda. I am moved by ur story and am proud of the feat u acheived as a 19year old young lady. Not many ladies would have done what u did. Indeed, there's no amount of money sufficient to pay for a woman's dignity and integrity. God bless u Linda and attend to ur heart desires speedily. Much love.

BLOGLORD said...

linda, i sincerely applaud u. coming from nowhere to somewhere.
uve said it all, u might not be a role model to everyone, but u sure r to some poeple. there r lots of upcoming bloggers who wish to be as big as u r. i know to such pple u r role model. there r some of us tht love what u do n d fact that at ur convinence u r making millions, to those of us, u r a role model.
there is nothing as good as being independent.
so many people r slaves behind d desk all to make probably less than100k a month. but u earn ur millions doing wat u love and at ur convinence..
go gurl.

for toke makinwa, i dont see wat she said to be an insult, maybe not just d right words she used but i guess she meant well as per those that feel hurt by ur posts shouldnt take it seriously..

all in all my darling lindastic ikejegbish, for me o, i love u (no homo), ur blog and its impact.

keep ur head high. not everyone will like u. some will hate, some will love. just do ur thing as long as u r happy.

in another note, "remember that behind every succesful person, lies a pack of haters"

What is toke's problem now. Which ki beef she dey beef you linda. Media is all about news/Gossip what ever she calls it. plus am sure she reads it alot if not she wudnt know what to talk about on that her flytime interview or radio show. Nonsense(i dey vex). She too,she is not a role model, she sells pirated news. What has she done that earns her the status (role model) now. NOTHING MSCHEWW!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Linda Ikeji! For this post alone, I LOVE YOU! Many times i've found myself thinking along the lines of just nabbing a rich man but God forbid i do that to my body. I'll rather have sex because i want to and not because of monetary gain.

More importantly i love your subtle and thinly veiled come back at Toke Makinwa. We know how she has used her body to get where she is today. If i have a daughter, i know full well that i'll prefer she emulates a hardworking honest womann like Linda Ikeji and not an over bleached insecure, leg spreading glorified prostitute like Toke.
God bless your hustle Linda.
You've just given Toke a simple lesson in life... next time she'll think before she opens her mouth.

Dee said...

Speechless!! Linda, u rock. Whether or not u told this story I still have respect for you. Before ppl judge they need to know their facts. Btw, what's wrong with the job u do? Dnt radio presenters gossip too? Who no like gossip? Abegi that woman shd just stfu. I hope she reads this and hides her head in shame. Some ppl r just too judgemental for my liking. Dno y they cnt jst mind their biz for once. Must they talk? Did anyone ever complain u were or weren't a role model? Truss some ppl to carry other ppl's palava on their head. Reminds me of a celeb's comment bout u being a failed model. The way that comment angered me. I even said to myself at least she's not selling her body to be miss Nigeria lol.

Nice advise to the young girls and I will make sure that my sisters reads your story. Might be good for a nollywood movie.

And as for Toke Makinwa... anways your story is self explanatory as 'you take style yarb her' and 'maybea what she did at school or still doing now'.

If dem born her well... lets hear her own story then we will know who between both of you is a role model..

Linda Ikeji, listen, its not a big deal being a role model, the best thing one can be in this life is oneself, as long as you are true to yourself then the rest are just add-ons. This Toke person, am sure not a lot of people know her, so am sure shes hardly a role-model either. Then thirdly, I think ur an awesome person, I think ur a good person and thats what counts. No one is perfect and its not fair for anyone to expect u to be. You are perfect in ur own way. Have a nice day

I do agree though , while blogging might pay the bill . Gossip is not a role model thing . PERIOD

I dislike Wendy Williams for making a living out of it , so how can i praise you when you do the same

Zoe said...

Linda I don't think you are a role model infact I don't like you very much... I would never say "when I grow up I want to be Like Linda Ikeji" No!...... But you are smart intelligent at what you do and you have turned nothing to something who doesn't gossip? Everybody does! But you made money out of yours that's being creative! It takes a lot of dedication and hard work to blog like you.... I applaud you for what you do and not for who you are...

Linda,

I don't understand why someone's opinion of you made you narrate that story. It sounds like you are trying to validate yourself to her and that's unnecessary. It's her opinion of you and opinions ain't facts. Please grow a thick skin....I think it is necessary in the industry you have chosen. xx

Linda dear, people are entitled to their opinions. It is who you know you are that matters. You have always been honest about your personality. On this blog, you have been real. I am not sure you are not a role model though. You are young, you make money from what you love doing, you are humble, you don't even take yourself too seriously and you are a beautiful woman. The whole world won't be pleased with you. Heck, people knock on Beyonce's hustle. If you aint talked about, then you're yet to make any impact in your world.
So sell your gossip, make your money, do you girl. Your story reminded me of a lot of things. It is well.

Wow.... I shed a tear and I am not even a woman! you should write a Bio Linda...

Role model or not, WE as an individual are our own role models.. We all need to stop looking for someone to aspire to, someone to lookup to or someone to adolised. No one owes us anytihng in this life. what we make of it is what will happen. Look deep into yourselves- believe in yourself, work hard and one day the sun will shine on your face..:)

I am sure Toke Makinwa's comment was taken out of context, just like a lot of things we all read in the media. my advice to you all is to take it with a pinch of salt, shrugg off your shoulders and keep it moving. God see's all our hearts and that is what matters most.

Sometimes i read most of your headlines and i'll be like this lady doesnt know what's going on outside. You have made it through determination and am really happy for you. If anyone think you are not a role model then let it be...what am sure of is that your gossip earn you what you ever desire in life and which anyone will be proud of. Am happy for you and i pray Almighty God continue to bless you. No need castigating Toke Makinwa she only describe you from what she believes you are...my simple advise to her to is to emulate your gossip life if she feels its easy and she should explore through it. Linda you're already a role model bcos i know more than 10 people that get serious about blogging just bcos of you...i can only liken you to Ali Baba that made Nigerians knows that you can make it through what u see as a mere joke and turn it into something people are running after in this age. My prayer for you is that God will give you your own husband that will make you happy and raise a family with you. God bless you

All I can say is, and I'm not being Linda's voltron here. Toke is a big fool and coward. Why didn't say this about Ladun Liadi, who's blog has no redeeming values at all? Is she scared that Ladun's readers will open her can of worms again? I guess since opinion is free everyone must sha have one. Whareva Linda, don't let that over-bleached (and yes she admiTted to bleaching) fortunate prostitute knock ur hustle. You Go Girl!!! Valerie.

jen said...

my mouth was wide open reading your piece linda......it is well. you stood by ur word and God saw you through........Toke M, i keep asking myself why in heavens name you would say such on air, nationwide radio station? have you crossed paths with linda and you have been looking for a way to bring her down or you are trying to fight battle for your friends she must have harmlessly posted in her blog?

obviously,you look like a tramp, yes i said it n thats judging from that photo. good a thing i dont listen to radio bc am sure ur voice will sound like shrilling florence nightingale.

dont get me wrong,am not fighting for linda bc i dont know wat might have transpired knowing or unknowingly btw u 2 but pleassssse madam celebrity rhythm 93.7, you should know better than to voice certain things on air.everything you say on air is recorded right or wrong?

everyday pips like me can talk anyhow and importance wont be attached to it but u,Toks Makinwa, haba you should watch what you say. by the way you are no different from bloggers like linda n perez bc you also trash people on air. you discuss politicians and celebrities on air.

better watch wat you say on air bc everyone is listening and taking mental notes.

Ok now, this is the story behind this fabulous girl I admire so much! Who would have known if she didn't tell! People would have thought it was all food in a silver plate for Linda! Linda, the truth is Without this story, pple close to you know who, what and how you have survived through those years and sweetie that's all that matters. Whatever anybody from a distance thinks is his/her headache...... Let them get into your fabulous shoes and take a walk in them, then come back and judge you! Retarded jealous low life losers! You are a super role model! Lemme know if you want me to write it everywhere and I shall! You are an inspiration to a lot of people! Take it from me!

I love your blog. It's keeps me in touch with my roots, as am sure it does to other Nigerians in diaspora. All my friends go to this blog. I'm surprised she said this after all the promotion you have given her by posting flytime videos. You must be hurt and i feel you. Don't mind her jare.
Ps: Toke Makinwa has bleached and bleached thanks to Egyptian milk. Is that how a rold model should behave? lol

Linda Linda Linda!! Nwa Ikeji! You made me cry this morning. I can relate. I'm 20 and trying so desperately to make it all by myself. It's so easy to give up and say 'Afterall one day I will 'belong' to a man. Many girls choose what seems to be the easy route. But they forget that by doing that, their giving up the blessings that Jesus has in store for them...if only they will perservere. I know people will come here and say, 'but Linda you're not married' blah blah blah....that's not the point. The point is that she has made it on her own, by herself.
Linda carry on doing you. You are a role model to me.

Great insight into your life. It's good to share this side of you. Toke was probably speaking based on face value. She has no clue.

For Oke's story you can see how much power your blog has, and if you start to branch out and do more philanthropic acts, maybe you would be seen as more than just a gossip blog.

Thank God for your journey and may you have more fruitful years ahead.

You have power to effect change, it doesn't matter how little. Use it.

Linda well said, I think you are role model regardless of toke's comment on air, well toke is a man whore she will sleep with anything to make money, whatever she is today s by proctor on in the highest level, I remember few week ago on ladun blog how she was expose by her so called friend. Toke problem is mouth diarrhoea , she had a fish brain so why bother. You story is an inspiration to women in Nigeria.
Everyone sells their body to survive in this country like it's the only way to prosperity .
I pity the children been born now what legacy would we give to them.
I don't blame toke makinwa too cos she is a hustler trying be someone important,she better keep her mouth shut and face her man and job or else she is going to be a laughing stock.
U should be proud of yourself Linda never seen anyone who criticise herself like you do and u are honest with you post. U remain my number one

I would suggest you take up some self esteem courses or books which will help you in that area. Once you raise your self esteem you will not need to explain yourself and prove yourself to others. You will stop defending yourself constantly and just allow yourself to define your life..instead of others.
