Linda Ikeji covers May issue of Mania Magazine

Bam! Awww, miss my modeling days! So, I'm the cover girl for the May issue of Mania Magazine. Yay! Badass cover...even if I have to say so myself! *wink*. See more after the cut...



Our very first twin cover features a young woman who needs little or no introduction- Linda Ikeji. An exclusive interview uncovers her rigorous journey to stardom and her immense relevance in Nigeria today.

Also featured in this edition are profiles of a few remarkable young people in diverse endeavors. The following made the list- Tunde Aladese (Head Writer, Tinsel), Ehizogie Okoeguale (Winner MTV Base VJ Search), Shalom Obi (Budding Supermodel), Dj Obi (Official Dj, Syndik8 records), Akanimoh Umoh (Sensational Artist), Anniette James Ekiko (AJE Filmworks) and Aderonke Adebanjo (On Air Personality, Smooth FM).

Our take on fashion in this edition centers on muted colours with a sporty feel. Another remarkable perspective is our tribute to literary icon, Chinua Achebe in form of a fashion editorial.

For back issues, subscription and comments on current and past issues, kindly send an email to editor@maniamag.org or 07058109821.

hey! who was responsible for the pix with the newspaperskirt? Should have cut a slit in it to make it real

Ijaw Chic said...

The first pic with the Cleopatra wanna-be hair is just uggg. There's something about it that's off-putting. I guess you'd have looked better if the hair was properly done.

The other pics look as fab as you are :)

Anonymous said...

O my God!, Linda am really worried, you are getting old by the day. Why you are not yet married? You are brilliant and hard working.
What are the qualities women have that you do not have? I hate to see you getting force spent and at the end of the day you end up being baba-mama for undeserved old man.
Get married now!(concerned reader)
