    This a welcome development as its crucial and paramount that we create awareness and mentor our young people from an early age so they can fulfill their potentials and achieve greatness.. “‘Educate a man and you educate an individual , educate a girl and you educate a nation”. Thank you Linda Ikeji. God bless you abundantly.

    We got to admit that Linda Ikeji is another Toke Makinwa. The more you dislike her and her sometimes surelere attitude, the more she shines in her Banana Island then you are left with no choice than to start liking her.

      Apparently quite some people.

      This is really good though. Are there tax benefits for charitable organizations? I think Linda could benefit from setting up her foundation as a tax Haven. Charity while helping her business.

    To not like someone doesn’t take away from their greatness.

    I don’t like the Linda that’s portrayed through the internet but she’s truly inspiring. Her compassion for humanity is undoubtedly rare and for that she’s DOPE.

    Another example of NOT liking someone but respect their dopeness is Toke Makinwa

      At least she’s using her copy and paste to help people.
      I’m not really an LIB fan or reader, but I must say I appreciate Linda’s philanthropy.
      She has really made a difference not only in d lives of her family members but the life of a lot of young girls trying to better themselves and build up businesses.
      In a country where a young girl can’t even go out and solicite for a job or request for funding in a govt agency without having to compromise herself just to get their audience. Or you know someone, that knows someone that works there.
      You can’t even get a job in a lot of govt agencies without having one uncle or aunty there.
      Even private sector same thing, so many youths are unemployed and if Linda can atleast help some with start up capital. That’s more than what our so called govt or wealthy ppl are doing.

    Just checked out fibre.ng. Good concept but the pricing starts from 50k upwards per month. If only they could do 25k monthly..

    In this new era of equality, I’ve always wondered why things play out this way. I’ll explain.

    Case One:
    —————————————————————————–
    Young man hustles, Young man makes a break through, Young man becomes something in life, Young man becomes Big man. Big man wants to give back. Big man decides to set up free training where young men and young women can also better themselves. Big man provides funds for Young men and Young women hustlers. Big man provides scholarships for young men and women scholars. Big man impacts the society positively.

    Case Two:
    —————————————————————————–
    Young woman hustles, Young woman makes a break through, Young woman becomes something in life, Young woman becomes Big woman. Big woman wants to give back. Big woman decides to set up free training where ONLY young women can better themselves. Big woman provides funds for ONLY young women hustlers. Big woman provides scholarships for ONLY women scholars. Big woman impacts the ONLY the female society positively.
    From Linda, to Uche, to Joke Silva, to Toke, to Chika Ike….. The list is endless. All this our successful women only know how to give back to other women. Imagine if Tony Elumelu’s foundation was only skewed towards men. Anyways na you sabi

    Wonder what will happen if it was the other way round.

      I believe this is the principle behind affirmative action. It is basically a way of helping women who as we all know, especially in such a patrilocal country as ours, are at a disadvantage in all areas of life. Women are paid less than their male counterparts for the doing the same jobs, sometimes doing even more than the men. That’s even when a women gets the job. Oftentimes where a woman is equally qualified or even more qualified for a job over a man, the position is given to the man.

      For reasons such as these, successful women – those who have managed to break glass ceilings – take it upon themselves to render assistance to their fellow women who may not get the opportunities they did or may never (without assistance from these successful women) attain such achievements.

      Please sight examples of jobs where men are paid more than women for doing the same job in Nigeria? I agree with the breaking the glass ceiling example you made but please don’t generalize your response else we will keep passing on the wrong information so much so that when things actually change we will not notice it.

      Welldone Linda.

      Every disadvantage a woman faces in terms of education, access, mentorship, finance is also experienced by men. Plus they’re so many women helping other women out there they should easily be at the top. Also every opportunity afforded to a man is also given to a woman.

      The idea that men have it easy hence women deserve special attention is flawed.

      Still doesn’t justify the point raised. Imagine if it were to be the other way round… Would you still be able to justify it? And please you women should stop this pathetic lies of men being paid more than women for the same Job. In my nuclear and extended family, there have been alot of respected,career and professional women. They built their careers, with no hindrance and got to the very top with no restriction or encountering any bias. I don’t know the environment where you lot live, but where I grew up women have the same opportunities as men, even as far back as 3 decades ago.

      You’re really obsessed with women. You lurk here, 24:7, trying to find something to say, even if it’s one woman you disagree with, so you can find something to say. I wish you some peace of mind, women and their gender equality fight won’t go anywhere, even if you find the best insults in the world to hurl at them anonymously on bellanaija

      LemmeRant is just brilliant. I keep wondering if all Those Rochas Foundation was male only, Chris Uba’s program, Tony and a whole lot that I can’t remember. I’m not even saying Linda should include male like who cares if she does or doesn’t but it feels odd considering it would cause an earthquake if this men choose to support male only.

      I don’t know what organization pays men than women. Is it MTN, Glo? Huawei? Chevron perhaps? Oh wait is it the government that pays based on level? Or Banks that prefer female workers? Oh wait is it media houses? Please you people should just stop it already. Or a female soldier that stays in camp wants to earn same with a male soldier facing bullets??? Do male pilot earn more than their female counterparts or male nurses earn more? Some people will just sit down somewhere and conjure fake things.

      No this isn’t fake and people do not make up these stories! Except you are HR and are privy the salary information, otherwise please do your research!

      I have been privy to such information in a variety of of organizations. So many brilliant women getting paid less than what their half-baked male counterparts get. Case in point, an organization I worked with a few years ago paid their male CEO a ridiculous sum, and in dollars, few months down the line a new female CEO ( with several Ivy League degrees and experience btw) was hired and offered half of what was paid to the previous ceo, and in Naira? Errr…what bs is that? She fortunately was aware of the last guys pay and refused. That’s just one case.

      Another organization I worked with paid their male staff no less 5-10% more than the female staff, even where such female staff members had better accomplishments, degrees and experience.

      A friend of mine works at a major Nigerian bank works twice as hard as a particular male colleague of hers, has less leave time, comes on time and leaves late, has better and more advance degrees etc. The other guy comes and leaves as he likes, take leave days whenever he chooses and still gets paid much more than she does.

      There are so many more stories like this so I beg to differ on your stance that these stories are made up. Yes, there are women who have managed to do well, get paid loads but the Gods honest truth is that if there were guys who had the exact same qualification, experience and work ethic than these women it is probable that their income will be much more than the woman’s.

    Y’all stay loving her philanthropic lifestyle, I stay loving her marketing skills…. She is going to this schools to get the kids to register on LIS. Smart move i tell ya. She is after those numbers, she doesn’t care how it comes. With the numbers flooding in, i bet u a Forbes recognition is next. Afterall Zuckerberg is her only competition.

    • AceOfSpades

      January 26, 2017 at 12:26 am

      If this approach is what you call marketing, all I have to say at how you think is wow! App needs people who will stay on the network not people who will just register and leave.

      Linda is hardworking with LIB so grace and luck found her but babe/guy, I sincerely hope this is for passion because it’s nothing close to marketing.

      If a guy shows up tomorrow on her post as says he got a 10m car from the articles sent to LIS, then that’s marketing and numbers of users who will download the app and stay will go up. Linda doesn’t understand the mechanism that drove her to the top.

      If she fakes some hackers trying to steal banking information but they failed to do so and makes reference to this hackers as same that hacked Target….it will get (even if it’s a bit of ) global attention and believe me, numbers will spike.

    can som1 advice her 2 take it easy wit d eggplants and semi nude pics of women. These secondary school girls will visit blog, what will they learn? Not only is she obsessed wit egg plants and almost naked or even fully naked women in many cases, there’s no form of censorship whatsoever. Then 2moro we wud start asking were kids learn bad stuff from. A six year old is old enof to b able to access d internet with her mum/dad’s phone. We can do better as society wether as parent, a blogger or a even a neighbour. We are responsible 4 d future generation.

      My dear I was also thinking the same thing! This her tour will draw all those young and impressionable ladies to her blog to come and learn what na?

      Money is not everything abeg. I respect bloggers who are able to be principled and draw lines as to what they display on their blogs and what they will not. Linda’s blog is certainly 18+ abi na 21+ sef.

      Promoting “self-made” on the one hand and “eggplants” on the other. Kontinu.

      she needs to work on her blog really, imagine the young girls visiting her blog and sees 1. how big Scot’s dick is in his trouser 2. a video of a girl giving a guy blowjob at a party 3. video of kylie having sex at a store etc. then the young girl checks her instagram page and all she learns is look of the day, haba Linda, i know you are trying to come clean, please fix these before reaching out to young girls.

    Don’t understand why we categorize this woman as self made. She made her money off lies, gossip and the misfortune of other people. MISS ME WITH THAT BS

    January 26, 2017 at 12:05 am

    It would be better if she makes money from things that edify. What will she be telling the school children about the gossips and the not too nice news she post? Anyone can be self made but check out what they do to make money!

    I beg to differ….what happened to Parents. .Teachers…why get them obsessed with money at that tender age.
    .its that love of material things getting them into trouble.
    .Please the last thing they need is taking advice from someone who made her money from bringing others down..and continously still does….and the filth she peddles on her site..
    Anyone can be self made look at KimK younger sisters pimped out since 14..does it make it right??

    There are so many Americans on this forum

    I’m just saying Laughing Out Loud

    Never mind It’s all your thoughts and comments

    Linda Ikeji is a rich woman Maybe she is more inspiring to young women than young men ages 18 – 25

    Dr Ifeanyi Ubah is a rich man He is inspiring to young men ages 18 – 25

    I guess like you all have said Many rich Nigerian men and women living in Nigeria are inspiring to young men and women ages 18 – 25

    But the over 40’s men and women living in Nigeria who are inspiring to them?
