Linda Ikeji sure is having a memorable year.In a year that is just 3 months old barely,the popular blogger has been involved in quite a few scandals.There was the infamous Hermes saga which she has since apologized for,there was the rumour about her involved in a money laundering case with some politicians,which she has laughed about and denied vigorously,and now its a fake account on twitter which had her supposedly saying she can buy any man! Wow! It sure is uncomfortable at the top.
What i am surprised about is why Twitter has not verified Linda,Linda is the biggest blogger
in Africa for Pete's sake,the lady has 1 million followers on twitter! Why has she been ignored by them?
I am sure after this embarrassing scenario,she will be very soon.
Meanwhile Linda has denied the Twitter account and message and did explain it all below in her own words...
So a couple of days ago, I reached one million followers on Twitter...you go, Linda! Lol. There are like 2million Nigerians on Twitter (I stand to be corrected) and half of them follow me...I'm so honoured. Thanks Nigeria! :-)
Meanwhile, there's something else I want to address because I saw a lot of folks abusing me upandan on social media this week over tweets they think I posted. Something about 'I can buy any man I want'. Yeah, right, that's why I've been single for years! #Rollseyes!
I may have made careless statements during the Hermes bag saga that I definitely regret and have apologized for (I was stark raving mad when I was posting on IG...I was in another world...lol) and my words were to the 'haters' but I forgot that there were young people who look up to me who were also observing what was going on and were disappointed by my remarks. I regret my words. So, yeah, I may have said those silly things but I would never post those tweets from the fake account. It was tweeted some days ago and I addressed it on Twitter but I see some people/groups on Facebook talking about it and many still believe I tweeted it and are just abusing me anyhow..lol. Thus, I decided to address it here!
No one can buy a man...or a woman for that matter. You can only buy a Muppet or a gold digger, not a real man. And a real man is what I am looking for! *wink*. See the tweets after the cut and please if anyone can help me shut down the Twitter account, I would appreciate it before they spoil my career..lol
The fake handle has 4k followers. It is @lindaLkeji. So the L is a small letter, and makes it look like lindalkeji. Mine is @lindaikeji with an i. (There are several other fake Linda Ikeji twitter/Facebook pages). Also, can anyone help me get verified? Thanks in advance...
And the hopeless tweets from the handle
