Why don't you start the Linda Ikeji Show on TV? I will watch it and by the way I have a PhD, so your follower ship cuts across all education strata and class levels. Well done to you.

Aww anonymous 5:35. That Is really sweet! Linda is one of the most influential women in Nigeria. Forget about what those irrelevant people say. They ain't shit. You are one of the few Nigerian women that are so open and don't take themselves too seriously! You are a great woman and I'm sure your immediate family are very proud of you.

Please always remember God because without him nothing is possible and of course, your fans, and loved ones. The rest don't matter. If you notice, most of your critics are non-mother effing factors. Some are kissing politicians asses(RMD), bleaching with pumpkin head(Toke), immature (Jim Iyke) etc. do you baby!

No wonder 7 years after the line on The Game's " Higher", we're still looking out for DETOX.

OMG!! tyler perry? he is one person i have always wanted to meet for sure...thank God for his life.

To you Linda my dear, when people start to praise you like they are now, you gotta be very careful....one thing i know for sure, people love you when you are up but will be the first to strike when you are down...be guided and keep being yourself, just let the almighty guide you.

keep their headz ringing Dr Dre. i got your back..

Well.... she's not completely removed from the action. Like Jay-Z, she just will not retire as she promised us she would. She still does interviews (just not in front of an audience) and has the O channel, so it's not that surprising.

Honestly, it was James Patterson's name that caught my eye on that list. I am impressed and inspired. As a soon to be published writer, seeing his name there gives a good feeling. So help me God! Linda, you are phenomenal and loved, Go girl!!

Much respect to Dr Dre! When someone spends three years of thorough research and development on a product, it tends to pay off. I got curious after I started seeing the headphones around a couple of years ago and checked them out and was pleasantly surprised.

50 Cent did the same thing with Vitamin water which was purchased by Coca-Cola netting him over $100M in 2007.

Every blessing from God is nothing but a stepping stone. Be inspired and always remember you can always be bigger and better! #GoGetIt!

Big boss of aftermath records that discovered 50 cent and made tupac thick during his days as producer and writer with suge knight's label, deathrow. Big up to him. He is a Mavin, to the core.
