Please pray for rapper Dagrin

Only just heard about this unfortunate incident today. I haven't been online that often lately so I really don't know what's going. But anyway I heard about Dagrin's horrible accident and it left me stunned.

According to netng.com, the incident happened around 3am on Wednesday morning infront of Alakara Police Station in Mushin. A truck was parked outside the police station on the road and he ran under the truck and his car was crushed. He's currently receiving treatment at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital.

Such a sad thing to happen. Our prayers are with you Dagrin. Please get well soon.

I am an Author! I am an Author!! I am an Author!!!

OMG! Linda Ikeji is an Author! I am in heaven. I'm beyond ecstatic. My book came out two days ago and it's been really exciting for me. Totally proud of myself. I decided to do this book in January...and by April, I actualised that dream. That's why I titled the book - It Takes You. Everything in our lives is really up to us.

From now on when you want to address me, you must include Author. For example, ex-model, blogger and author, Linda Ikeji...oh yeah...loves it! lol

Alright let's get serious. Basic info you all need to know.

The book - It Takes You, (A Book of Inspiration) is a 130-page book of 30 inspirational, motivating and life changing articles written by ex-model, entrepreneur and blogger, Linda Ikeji. (Make sure you write my title like that :-))

It will sell for N800 naira at the bookstores (You can start buying at the stores after the launch). But if you buy directly from me, it's just N600, but totally free to students. I don't have that many copies to give out for free, that's why I'm hoping to find a generous individual or a corporate organisation to pay for the cost of printing more copies. I'm talking to one already. Hope it turns out well.

Book Launch/Signing
The official launch date is May 5th, @Theatre 5, Genesis Deluxe Cinema, The Palms, Lekki.

The book is N600, but if you want it delivered to your home or office anywhere in Lagos, it will cost you an extra N1000. Anywhere at all in Lagos. If you want a copy, please call Uche on 08030529633. Just text her your address and how many copies you want and it will be deivered to you...then you pay when you get your delivery.

If you live abroad and want a copy or some copies.. contact me directly. (I want the western union in my name and my name alone :-)). The book is less than $5 but to deliver it to you will cost money. So you will be looking at buying a copy between $30 to $50 or even more depending on where you reside. Contact me - lindaikeji@gmail.com or 08033595004.

Please buy my book :-). I'm trying to raise money to print more copies. Thank u very much.

I need you all to come through for me abeg. If you are a blogger, please, please help me spread this info on ur blog. Mostly about the launch and book signing. Please help me publicise. Appreciate.

Linda meets Oluchi...

Sorry I haven't blogged since Thursday.
Nah...I'm not really sorry ...I was busy having fun all through the weekend. I didn't have time for you people abeg...lol..
I was busy being an unknown celebrity... and then meeting the real celebrities. :-)
I was at this event and when the MC saw me, he said, 'OMG Linda Ikeji is here with us'. People turned towards me and were like...'Linda Ikeji? Who's that?'...lol
And then when Oluchi walked into another event I was at...everyone wanted to take a picture with her, including me.

Do you know of any lady who would wear flat sandals to a red carpet event?
I present to you - Linda Ikeji...lol
Oh what da hell, whatever rocks my boat huh? :-)

...And then I met Oluchi...

You know, Oluchi and I went to the same 'lesson' for our WAEC in 1997. I was in Lagos Anglican Girls Grammer Schl, she was in Surulere Girls Sec Schl, but we attended the same after-school tutorials, where we were friends classmates for a few months. But when I tried to remind her a few years ago when we first met...she didn't remember me.
Oh well, there are people I don't remember too...
That's what happens when you become a celeb...lol
*I kid*

Let me explain the difference in height. You see Oluchi is 6 '2' and I am 5 '8'.
You understand now? :-)
The picture was taken at the 13th anniversary of Gentle Touch Relaxer.
Will bring you more pictures from that event later.

Will get back to regular blogging in a few days...
Hope everyone is doing great..
Catch you soon

Oh by the way, that hair of mine is ZABEL HAIR. 100% human hair. Real cute, real expensive. Given to me by the guys at Zabel Hair free of charge. One of the advantages of being a blogger *wink*
Will tell you more about it later..
Cheers people.
