Linda Ikeji Apologizes to Fans Over Hermès Birkin Bags Saga



Linda Ikeji_February 2016Earlier this week, Linda Ikeji defended herself over claims made by some Instagram users alleging that her Hermès Birkins are fake.

Linda has now apologized to her fans for the incident, and also posted her first ever selfie on her Instagram page – @OfficialLindaIkeji.


Let me apologize to the true Linda Ikeji fans who may have been disappointed by my rant the other day! I reacted because I thought it was really a confirmation from Hermes. But I later found out that Hermes would never confirm the authenticity of a bag over IG dm. If they’re wrong, the owner of the bag could sue so usually they ask you to bring the bag into one of their stores and if they find it to be a counterfeit, they could seize it. So that dm was a fluke.

But anyway, enough about the bag. It’s so petty! Can’t believe how much we argued over it and how crazy I went over it! ☺ But the whole drama has made me realise that the amount I spent on 2 bags could have changed a few lives if I’d invested it in them. But I’m bag obsessed, what can I say? ?. May God bless you so much that the least of your worries will be a bag! Anyway, I’ve decided to double the amount of money I’ll give out this year to aspiring female entrepreneurs. Been feeling a little guilty ? I want to redeem myself.

I’ve told my pple to find a venue asap and have y’all meet me soon. Success is sweet, I tell you! When you don’t have to depend on daddy, husband, bf, Aristo. ..for anything you want..nothing beats that! I want so many ladies to succeed so the next generation can have more women to look up to. Plus, one of the must rules of getting blessings from that you must spread it. You’re allowed to buy bags every now & then ? but you must help others..That’s the only way He will continue to bless you!

Anyway, having said all that..I’m going on a luxury trip to Dubai soon with family and friends and I’d like to a take a true fan along. It will be an all-expense paid trip with shopping money included ☺. Trying to figure out how to chose though.

Any ideas? Oh and by the way, this is my first selfie ??

      It’s not that serious folks, I remember 4 years ago on BN when I always commented about the fakeness of Hermes bags here, oh how folks tagged me a hater….funny thing is now even as much of a label whore that I am, it’s not that serious anymore folks, let’s keep it moving lol.
      P.S enough with that waiting list crap( I know this because I have insider info), if any of the real housewives women get those bags without being on any list then surely that story has levelled, there’s a high demand for the bag and as exclusive as they intended it to be, these folks wanna make money so there’s no sense in a waiting list for up to years anymore.

      February 18, 2016 at 4:11 pm

      DM was a fluke
      And so was your bag …….Linda a structured bag will never bend that way

      It clearly fake , you know it and we all know it

      NO receipt
      NO receipt
      NO receipt
      NO receipt
      NO receipt
      NO receipt

      NO receipt ……..Why because it is not original . Knowing how arrogant Linda has become she would have posted proof of purchase . She has done it before

      Her arrogance in this writeup is unbelievable
      She thinks to make up is by bragging more and throwing money at the peasant
      At least now Linda I see your true you and with all the money in the world you still have no self-esteem .
      Take that to the bank , take some Lesson from Uche Pedro about Humility while you are it

      It is always easy to criticize and make so much noise about a person’s mistake or mishap. It is true that money changes people, and what it eventually makes of the person is the true issue of the matter.. Look how pissed you are over the fact that she didn’t show the receipt, even going as far as to compare her with Uche Pedro (that’s just sad). But then i know, oh yes, i know… That you are not better than Linda Ikeji!

      Please Bimbo free Linda,and who ever told you that the original Hermes doesn’t bend. Fortunately the clemence leather of Hermes Birkin bends and that’s what one characteristics the fake doesn’t have cos the fake is so stiff and doesn’t bend.Epsom Hermes birkin feels more firm than clemence birkin so please try and see ORIGINAL Hermes birkin before opening ur big mouth to talk about what you know nothing about.
      As for those thinking Linda shoulda woulda done this or that,her money,her bag and its purely her choice on what she does with it. Really sad the amount of venom emanating from people most of all young girls,Tufia .I am sure a lot of people really wish they had her money or has achieved what she has.
      Just like they hate on the kardashian (with no talent comment )who by the way are constantly smiling to the bank.
      I applaud her for apologizing to her real true fans but she doesn’t owe anybody any apologies on how she lives her life. Her life,her money ,her bags,her INSTAGRAM which it is what it is.the GRAM.My two cents

      February 19, 2016 at 10:07 am

      She couldn’t produce a receipt because she bought them from a reseller of designer item not directly from Hermes. But Linda is too arrogant to admit this

    • Damilola

      February 22, 2016 at 5:30 am

      @Dr N

      why do people insist to say, it’s her money, it’s her bag. She’s made it our business. Nobody is going after Bella naija, bcos she lives her life privately. I’m sure, Bella is just as rich as Linda especially when she has a more positive platform, resources than linda. Linda blog is solely about gossip. But First of all, we her readers is her money making. She makes money through our help, and now the least she can do is throw it back in our faces, “Bitch, I’m rich and y’all are haters. If we don’t read her gossip blog, give her so much viewership, nobody will know who she is. And she won’t be where she is today. Sorry, her brand is not like it’s informative or changing the world in any way. It’s just trashy entertainment that we sometimes love. When you think of women doing substantial business and changing lives with it, you will see Linda ikeji as a yeye businesswoman who is carrying her laptop up and down, posing with real or fake designer products with empty money.

      I swear, not everything is jealousy and I don’t envy anyone. No, actually Oprah, Michelle obama, sheryl sandberg etc I admire women making a difference not shouting how much money they have.

    • Damilola

      February 18, 2016 at 4:38 pm

      Linda, we accept your “apology” and I hope this can be a growth for you. We all have our little moment but please focus more on building your brand, equity because petty things like this can easily damage your brand. Then you won’t have money to buy expensive designers to show off…lol or buy another mansion in plantain island next to banana island .

      P.S where is the receipt? Anyway, we knew the truth all along that the b*g was as fake. And for you to respond to what you thought was Hermes response has guilty conscience written all over it. I’m sure, you didn’t know it was fake and thought Hermes was calling you out. Honestly, if you know in your heart smth is the real deal, you won’t even go that length.

      She must always reiterate that she didn’t sleep with a man for money… Abeg. Ihave listened to enough stories to know that no be human beings ppl dey sleep with for maney again jor…

      As a child I was warned about receiving gifts from strangers in Nigeria. It wasn’t until I was in my teens, I read greek mythologies and realized it wasnt an ‘African’ thing. Greek stories tekl of Theft, fraud, Idol worship, abortion drafts, Beastialism, body part and Soul traders etc used to obtain wealth im not pointing fingers ooo but Just because u didn’t jump into the arms o a rich man does not make u less suspect. Enjoy your riches the way it came.. Leave those to enjoy theirs. Let God judge.

      Its just paining me that she bought a fake bag for that much and she doesnt even know it. I mean the real fakes dont even cost that much.
      Except for really old Hermes bags that come in tan dust cover the original hermes comes in a bright orange dust cover. Hers is cream. Thats the colour all the fakes come in,
      Linda please go and request a refund, You have been cheated.

Which one is this demand for unending apology. It yaff do. BNers pretend not to like give away. All you rich people on this blog. Yet, when Bella for the first time gave away N50k, come see comments almost 500. Leave Linda and her fans. Hustle is hustle so long as you are not stealing or killing anybody. She understands her followers which is business acumen 101.

    @Aikay. pls say wat you want about Linda but DON’T ever use the word “humble”” and Genevieve in the same sentence again.


      February 18, 2016 at 4:34 pm

      Hi AnnieRose, Genevieve Nnaji is actually very very humble and meek, I’ve met her and most of my friends have met her. She’s very pleasant but EXTREMELY shy and she loves her space and privacy. she’s the perfect example of an introvert. That’s why she keeps herself from public glare except it’s work. Did you notice how veterans and recognised movie directors showed up at her movie premiere? Even Sola Sobowale prayed earnestly for her as her daughter. If she’s a very good and humble child, they’d not have honoured her invitation. Even Charles Novia testified to her humility.

      That being said, Linda u r forgiven. Just know that silence is very golden. Silence is the mystery Genevieve wins over any other entertainer in the industry. she leaves you guessing and that’s mysterious.

      Go and sin no more but caution Laura very well else, she’d be ur doom

  16. Iris

    February 18, 2016 at 3:51 pm

    LOL but she has fallen my hand O. She only realised the Hermes account that said the bag was fake was itself fake because she later figured out that they call you into the store to authenticate? The comment “the so called Birkin bag ON the picture is a counterfeit” should have been a dead giveaway from the beginning.

    • Author Unknown

      February 18, 2016 at 4:05 pm

      Lol. I agree Iris, though I thought it was possible that Hermes’ rep, who would likely be a French person, could make that error. I just thought it was awkward for such a big name brand to attempt to authenticate something from a random picture.

    • just bored

      February 18, 2016 at 5:43 pm

      Social media is an acceptable medium of communication in the current word. That message could have been from Hermes.. I suppose the best way is for Linda to produce a receipt.. even if she bought it pre-owned. And people saying you can’t spend dollars in the UK, that is wrong. USD is accepted in a lot of shops especially around the London area.

    Linda good morning
    Me i just came here to see receipts but anyway since you dont have receipts i was wondeirng Since you love dashing money desperately to be liked (by fire by force) have you considered maybe entering politics – Female Governor of IMO STATE – i mean afterall you already have one foot in politics anyway – if you know what i mean – (wink wink) .

    Anyway she was actually trying to apologize but along the lane just like Bruno said, she is missing the point about the recent bag saga. she should have just apologized and walk away and not bother anyone of her new plans of giveaways or intending trips to Dubai. still like her and her blog though. all the best to her.

    This is my vintage take about Linda …. Why try to validate every words and actions and gesture you make specially with a non chanlent approach , why do you have the urge to always always … Prove you are perfect and self righteous … ! even with the banana island house n all your wealth , you are still not content without people validation people you don’t even know , You created and started this new Nigerian age of online bullying ( if you have not being reading blog from 2010 don’t bother don’t think I am a hater ) that mean said … No where in the UK you are allow to pay anything in dollars … And my dear even if you waited for 1 year for the Hermes bag doesn’t mean its original … (Hermes confirm its is fake ) why argue with them and your IG followers … ( Linda this is much more than what you have put the likes of mercy Johnson , Tok , Susan peters etc through by posting informations that are true or not true … I was really surprised you even blocked you IG … My dear ice princess … As I will always say Linda will never inspire me .. Not in a million years … Money is not my inspiration for success and hard work

    oh well, apology accepted but you lost a great amount of credibilty and you will never be viewed the same. And I thought Laura had no sense, but your own “oju o ri ola ri. ,ehn… how old are you, mama?
    my take on it:
    1) Black people, oh my black people…Only in Nigeria material things are glorified to this level. .Linda went through all this stress to defend what? a bag! Did u guys even know (racist) brands like Hermes sponsor campaigns that promote Supremacist ideologiess??

    2).Nothing more irritating than a woman who talks loudly about money.. I am too rich, your cars are cheaper than my bags. Really , Linda, really?How unfortunate….You even had to mention your Banana house to prove what point? i don’t know.

    3)See idiots with massive inferiority complex publicly fighting dirty over colonial commmodities…….Dark continent indeed

    4)Sister Linda, u clearly suffer from low self-esteem, as evidenced by frantic and desperate efforts to convince total strangers on the internet, that you can spend enough to feed a village, on a fashion accessory.

    5) YOU SHOWED YOUR REAL SELF THRU THAT MELTDOWN. WE HAVE NOW SEEN THE REAL YOU!!!HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE BULLIED???? Plus money don’t buy class, do your Banana neighbours like you?

    6) Why do i feel she’d get back to making noise once she finds a proper way to confirm those bags are real.????

    I don’t hate this lady but a grown woman in her mid-thirties like Linda displaying such a show of shame because she wants to prove to the world she’s rich…..material wealth can never make a person posh.
    Like someone commented, some people are so poor that all they have is money.

    So I followed this post from the last one and my conclusion would be that quite a number of Nigerians are very bitter, resentful and hateful.. Truthfully, I am not a fan of LIB because of the blog content which sometimes I think is way overboard but on a sincere note I think this woman is hardworking. She invests time and energy into whatever it is she is doing and it has paid off. I don’t care whatever she flaunts because it is her money. If we all were in her shoes I am sure we will do the same. Why do we all pretend like we are saints. Every single Nigerian has the tendency of “Money Miss Road” its just that the rate at which we do it differs. And for those comparing her blog with BN, I think you need to understand what the meaning of “Carving a Niche for oneself” is. These are 2 totally different blogs with different content. So they are both incomparable. Choose your favorite and read it. Enough of all this bitterness on here biko. If you are tired of your hustle, carve a niche for yourself and we will patronize you. Today its Dabota, tomorrow Toke and another day it will be Uche Pedro. Biko get a life and mind your own hustle. That’s why Nigerians always fall ill…..Drinking someone else’s pill….This epistle sha… U guys should chilllllllll….

    Hello Linda, you probably won’t read this but allow me all the same.

    “But I later found out that Hermes would never confirm the authenticity of a bag over IG dm. If they’re wrong, the owner of the bag could sue so usually they ask you to bring the bag into one of their stores and if they find it to be a counterfeit, they could seize it. So that dm was a fluke.”

    That you believed the Direct Message came from a genuine Hermes handle in the first place says a lot about your taste and brilliance Linda.
    You owe no one this post. Some of us can see through it. It’s no ‘apology’, it’s show off more like, something you enjoy doing a lot. Sometimes, I’m tempted to agree with people who diss you by saying it’s the new money syndrome but I’m a member of the new money brigade so i find that absurd but Linda, calm down. New money sure grows into old money eventually so I usually don’t buy into that diss.
    This is so arrogant and crass from you.
    All the same, I truly wish you the very best in life.

  33. Sika

    February 18, 2016 at 4:18 pm

    Again, Linda has done what she always does. When she is called out and is guilty she tries to come back with this long epistle of being ‘self made’ or not depending on men for money..she then includes charity or gives money away. Look woman, you are a rich bitch, we get it. but your attitude stinks. You can be rich today but poor tomorrow. You are not a humble person and those rants showed your true colour. All i can say is that it isnt pretty.

    February 18, 2016 at 4:43 pm

    ?? The meltdown and anger was because she knew the bag was fake not because any “fake Hermes rep” confirmed it. The accusation on IG was unexpected and she flipped because she was caught skirt and panties down! I’m leaning towards the fact that she knowingly bought a fake bag and thought it would fly without anyone suspecting. If she had unknowingly bought a fake bag, her anger would have been directed at the seller on “Sloane Street” and from past behaviors, herself or her sister will show the receipt. The apology is lame but I don’t blame her, she knows her followers/fan very well. Anyhow… usual, I’m entertained ?

    I would say before the Banana Republic purchase I was a fan but then the content vindictive and very personal.
    And based on that can’t see why she is heralded as a role model..
    Women work hard to better themselves and of course treat themselves to luxuries when needed….not to keep ramming it down that no Aristo bought this for me..cmon who does that??
    Everyone loves success but quite silly to say it’s hate when you called out for being ridiculous.
    As @HoneyCrown stated the real beef should have been with Hermes on Sloan Street..If i’m buying a 14K bag be sure to have my receipts and the Managers No…unless they noticed a African Mugu and she got played..still what ever happened to refunds??that’s standard.
    Double the Giveaway and Dubai it to her she knows we live in the land of the needy…make what you want of that.

      I must say Linda needs to be skooled in etiquette, but atleast she’s making a difference in d lives of many of dos girls you may look down at. Not everybody is privileged, leave her to empower ppl that need it and not you and I, that it means nothing to.

      Its Linda who has looked down on people. First she boasted that her handbag costs more than some people’s cars. And then she insulted those who have to depend on others to survive. Not everyone one will have the same opportunities. Even less will have the ability or favour to strike at chance. I don’t think anyone can take away her achievements but she needs to learn to be graceful. Life is tough especially in this part of the world. I had a lot of success at young age but an abusive marriage and illness have forced me back into my father’s care. It does hurt to hear such comments. And I agree with most people that she is severely arrogant and is blinded by pride. This apology is rife with pompousity and pig headedness. I don’t feel that she sees people as her equals anymore. Unexpected wealth can do that to person.

      Please Amaka stop with the stanning for Linda. People are entitled to their opinions, not everyone would or should agree with you especially when all you’re doing is just keep insulting people for airing their views.
      Linda herself has called various celebs out for purchasing fake channel bags so really.
      And yes, that was NOT an apology. Bite me if you want, I’m entitled to my opinions. She might be a billionaire but she doesn’t have any other persons wealth attached to hers so please stop shutting people up.
      Like you can only be richer than she is before toy can criticise her. Seriously?
      The problem now is that everyone wants to claim they have ‘haters’ without even looking within to examine their own character.
      And every time she gets called out on something, she must make references to the ‘I didn’t date an aristo’ stuff. Please. Leave those who do it, they aren’t doing it with your body so why does it have to be something you say all the time?
      Learn to accept criticism without lashing out. How many people do you want to prove a point to?

    How i wished she (Linda) never said a word in response, that would have given her a leg to stand on!!!!!! as the only way prosecutors can know if you are lying is through the statement you make init???? now, due to curiousity, a French chic at my place of work carries the Brown Hermes Birkin Bag………….i went to meet her and inquire about the bag, alas!!!!! she told me straight away that its a Copy she has got!!!! i now showed her Linda’s Claim of walking into the store to buy it straight away, she was shocked and startled!!!!! she said she has been on the waiting list for over some year’s now and still not able to get it, she said to start with, the bag (Original) is not machine stitched but handmade which takes time to complete due to its unique detailing.
    She advised that the only way Linda can buttress her stance of the bag being original, is to take it to an HERMES outlet for grooming which costs at least £300, after that she would get a receipt/certified note from Hermes of its Authenticity and her unique number.
    Madam linda, till i see the grooming receipt of your bag as advised by a “French Chic” wey like bag die like you…………………………….Leave Trash for LAWMA!!!!! Put your money on sources you can trust i.e sue if the product is counterfeit!!!!! as for the increment as per your give aways, i trust my Naija peeps, dem go collect the money still insult you join as Yoruba go say “Akosapo ni Egun ko owo” meaning “The Masquerade never refuses any amount of money given”.

    While you are ranting and raving and getting headache over her matter she’s making more money.
    You go to her website to do amebo, you click on it and add some more money to her empire.
    She carries your money and uses it to buy another “fake Hermes bag”

    Linda did not have to apologize to anyone, did she commit a crime? Look at all these computer ninjas demanding for apology and reciept. Is it your money? Is it your blog? Are you Hermes? Are those your bags? If you understand what it is to earn your own money, then you will understand what it means to have freedom to buy whatever the hell you want, fake or real. Most of you shouting here also have one or two fake things. In Nigeria, most of the foreign films sold on the street are pirated, among other things. If you have watched a pirated movie, downloaded our favourite Usher song without paying, etc., then you have no right to stand on a pedestal and judge. I’m not saying that buying fakes is right but please let’s stop talking from both sides of our mouths. I support Linda and all women who are hustling hard to make things happen for themselves and others and I will not join the bash-fest. I don’t see why it is such a joyful event to scorn and deride others. To those talking about who is classy and who is razz, you are also not classy either. Classy people do not tell others that they are or aren’t classy. Classy people are not so self-aware of their classiness, it comes naturally. Therefore, by chanting about how razz Linda is, you are also highlighting your razzness. End of rant.

The only difference now is that you dont have that caliber of money to buy and snap picture and subliminally post it on fb or instagram with an “inspiration” quote. Given the money she has, half of us wont even think to spend it on other people the way she does. Infact am i saying other people, half of you won’t even spend it on FAMILY not to talk of strangers. So before sitting behind your screens and typing with hypocritical fingers, take a long hard look at yourself. As for linda, what she does thats her cup of tea. But all i know is that you cannot deny her hard work. Some africans are a bitter lot of people.

Heyyy it must be difficult for you to sleep at night with the thoughts of Linda on top her game.

  58. MyMessageToYouFakeNigerians

    February 18, 2016 at 8:03 pm

    to all nigerians who SUPPORT FAKE – (Linda Ikeji) –

    Buying a fake is wrong on more levels than most consumers seem to understand. First I think it is best to distinguish a fake from something that was “inspired” by another. A fake to me is something that copies a brand’s designs and/or logos/tags/packaging in an attempt to pass off an illegitimate item as one from the original brand. It will be impossible to avoid “inspired” items; where smaller brands create items very similarly (even carbon copies) at a cheaper construction and sell it under their name (i.e. high street brands). The wedding dress sounds like a situation with an “inspired” design.

    Buying fakes does hurt a brand directly. In cases where the fakes are made at high quality and sold to customers as the real thing that is taking a sale right from the store. Fakes also help tarnish brands leaving them undesirable to customers that can afford them. Coach knows this very well, they made the mistake of over-saturating the market and this attracted a lot of counterfeit makers. Their logos became synonymous with the counterfeit market of canal street in NYC and that deterred a lot of customers from the brand as they did not want to carry something that was expected to be fake. This does not only happen to brands that oversaturate, I have had friends and clients say no to certain styles of luxury bags (Celine, Chloe, Saint Laurent) because fakes of them are so readily available. As these brands start to lose customers it not only hurt their image it hurts every single worker of that company.

    Other reasons buying fakes are bad are the ethical ones. These counterfeits are usually made in some of the most horrid working environments. Yes some established brands have similar conditions but supporting them on any level is not ok. These are made in half hazard factories using dangerous chemicals with very little regulation as most of them are not legal facilities. Another big thing about counterfeits A LOT of people don’t know is that in a lot of cases they are used to support major drug and crime groups. Counterfeit is in the arsenal of a lot of these large crime organization. Some use it to smuggle drugs and guns into countries and the profits to fund their operations.

    In my opinion buying a fake/counterfeit/knockoff only hurts, the buyer included. Designer apparel and accessories are out of the reach for most of us, but that should be no excuse to buy a fake with another designer’s logo and imagery, get something inspired or close. If you truly love a bag you love its design not the logo on it, so if you purposely buy a fake you really just want to parade the brand name. Such shallow consumerism hurts more than it is worth.

So in your life you have never watched or shared movies downloaded online from all them rip off torrent sites and what not, u have never gone to rent movies in ckubs or bought in traffic, don’t even want to write epistle sef to join issues with you…To your own self be true!!!!! And by this epistle you still adamant and maintain the bag is a fake…..ehhhehh, you need a hug from fake Nigerians

  59. Mostest

    February 18, 2016 at 8:10 pm

    I truly hope Linda can make a comeback from this. Sometimes I feel sorry for her, she’s rich quite alright but she seems empty inside. Bags, shoes, seems like she uses all this to fill a void, dare I say hide the emptiness. Successful people don’t need validation, true wealth is when buying a Hermes bag doesn’t seem like such a big deal you need to brag about it. Many are still poor in thinking despite hugs bank balances. 500m for a house in banana was a waste when a recession is about to hit (God forbid but the signs are glaring), look online and see equally nice houses in banana for half the price. The money bags are counting their losses, houses are not selling and PRICES WILL CRASH. She has done well buying a house so luxurious but a smart person would’ve bought a block of flats. Blogging cannot be a permanent job, the it factor (gossip) Lib had is gone. Clients realize that advertising on her blog doesn’t really have the desired effect, sadly Linda’s followers consist of a lot of low income earners. She needs real advisers and not yes people

She gets y’all for free and sells y’all for billions and y’all are chewing Tylenol on her head! Just wow, I can’t with Nigerians!

    Nigerians on here: there’s a saying that goes, small minds discuss people, great minds discuss ideas that will yield cash and productivity. Based on Linda’s apology and ideas she is more of a great mind. So yall haters, classy envious driven, looking for receipt and all, know your class and level. See as una dey create traffic for BN by talking about Linda and increasing BN cash flow. Focus your energy into increasing your cash flow.

    Oh by the way, when Linda decides how she going to share money, trip and all. Ever notice the heavy traffic on her blog. I mean BN can’t get that. The girl is a business women, rich without arizto. Hate all you want; she still going to be Linda, rich and posting it on her blog ando IG (it is not in your face hater, nobody sent you to her personal business space).

    Nigerians, u created this monster. I havent said much abou this debacle because im indifferent about linda. However i was sorely disappointed by her actions and her true character was exposed. You would think that someone who built her wealth bullying others for yrs and reporting pple to her immature commenters to tear apart for her would have a tough skin by now. All this nonsense just to prove ure rich? Im a true linda fashion, she went ahead and wrote an epistle laced with with brags and the normal “if i can be this rich, so can u”…just to gain back her gullible and desperate followers. Isnt this reminiscent of fake pastors who would use bible passages in their favor to keep their followers on their side? A simple an heartfelt apology wouldve sufficed…or no apology at all self is better thAn this pride-ful speech. Theres just no hope for the girl. Everything she says must always end with her humble-bragging about owning a & b. Are u serious?!

    If I want gist ,I will go to SDK who I hit on for the second time yesterday, I am sure her visitors skyrocketed yesterday.

    Dear Linda ,you see those stupid haters you cussed at are the reason you can afford a birkin in the first place . you think you are untouchable ,you really should read your bible .

    I have said enough. You can change your attitude but at 35 I doubt it ,I used to think your sister was the reason for your bad press but I can see you are not so different .

    This is Nigeria peeps. If you’ve got money, you flaunt it. If people could walk around with their net worth written on their foreheads they would. This is a town where no one has any respect unless you have proper cash in your bank account and you better know how to spend it. These so called ‘classy people’ are the one’s without any money. They have the old family names but they really can’t afford to live like royalty in this present climate, so they nitpick at how you speak, how you write and spell and how you carry yourself, living in the past because the present is too difficult to acknowledge. They stick to each other like glue, fooling themselves that they’re too important to stoop down and mingle with new money like the Linda’s and the Otedola’s of this world and that the only decent place to live in Lagos is Ikoyi.

    Fact of the matter is, new money doesn’t care about you and your stuck up ways. Linda has made it without you! Truth be told you (old money, runs chicks and Daddy’s girls) can’t keep up and the only way to knock people down is to complain about how tasteless it is to flaunt your wealth, when quite frankly you can’t flaunt it because you don’t have any left.
    The reason why its so difficult for people to accept that Linda is rolling in the dough is because they just can’t comprehend how she’s made so much money when they are struggling to maintain. Chanel bag yes, your husband can buy them by the dozen, but two Hermes bags at a go…nah, it has to be fake.

    Well guess what, those bags probably aren’t fake and yes Linda was silly enough to believe a fake Instagram post (goes to show her level of exposure), but the bottom line is this. She’s got money, she didn’t have to marry a cheating husband to live in Ikoyi, she doesn’t have to suck up to a strict billionaire Father to maintain her allowance and she doesn’t do runs. This is enough to piss off about 90% of Nigerian females that fall into the categories above!

The bile and bitterness with which some people commented over this bag issue is just so distasteful, especially from those who look down on women like Linda just because they have dared to succeed on their own terms, despite coming from less privileged backgrounds. Yes, I personally think her initial reaction was extremely childish, but the venomous delight dripping from the tongues of her supposedly ‘classy’ detractors over two bags was just ridiculous and sad.

    Thank you at Dr. DN. If she can afford a house of over 500million Naira,what is a Birkin bag? She can damn well afford it. Most of the people talking just recently knew what Hermés the brand is,talk less of a Birkin bag. I am certain they don’t even know the origin of the Birkin bag. It is NO MORE exclusive to own one. Most people have the money to buy one now so it’s ever ready. Thanks to the jet age and people now making money from every means without being restricted to just a few money making venture as it was before. I blaim the advent of Internet and social media where every goat now feels bold enough or exposed enough to talk cos they have now managed to see and know somethings. Why should she show you the reciept? So when u see the staggering amount u also cuss her out on it.

    Linda you did not have to say any thing, If you know is real then enough is enough. you are now a big time celebrity every thing you do or say will be on a pedestal, If you can afford a house in banana Island i don’t see why you cant afford a Hermes hand bag. That said note that even abroad they are fake too. Watch fashion movies, live Shoperholic, Devils wears Prada and The woman. This comment of always reminding people that you did not sleep with Men for money is not necessary I for one despise those act. Instead of always saying that use your blog create a post that will sensitize women on the down side of runs and the rest of it. That said apology accepted.

    Aunty Amaka o Is Linda paying you to defend her? The eagerness with which you respond to every comment that likely wouldn’t sit well with her
