Media Entrepreneur Linda Ikeji is a Beauty Delight for ThisDay Style Magazine's Latest IssueMedia Entrepreneur, Linda Ikeji is stunning for the latest issue of ThisDay Style Magazine.

The power woman who was shot by leading photographer Ty Bello and styled by Moashy Styling served major Hollywood glam in the new issue.

As is her tradition, Ty shared a personal story;

LINDA IKEJI: So I remember a short moment I had during @officiallindaikeji ‘s shoot …we were all in her bathroom .. she ..reclined beautifully in that tub .. surrounded by the beauty team ..every one was readjusting something .. making sure it is was all perfect .. but her phone was never far .. I noticed she found moments to work .. in the middle of our drama .. I was then transported into a moment in her life over a decade ago when someone asked what she did .. and the look of confusion and worse ..concern when she retorted .. ‘ I’m a blogger … I blog ‘.
I know that confused – concerned-almost -condescending look I got when people didn’t understand my answer .
I remember sitting in a car in 2001 and an older aunty asked me .. what’s that ‘thing ‘ you said you do again ….’photography ‘ abi… ?everything about her tone put inverted commas on the word . But I stayed engaged because I knew she was genuinely interested and somewhat concerned… I answered yes and then she responded.. You’re living your dreams .. abi? And before my goggly eyed self could respond, she jerked me forward with a loud …WAKE UP!!!!! .. I’ll never forget .. Not necessarily the conversation itself but the conversations I had with my self afterwards .. I was so shaken .. no one had spoken so direct .most people just figured it was best to give me time to figure life out … till I get a real job
In that conversation.. I did WAKE UP .. to the truth that I had made a choice .. I was going to live as a CREATIVE … and that it wasn’t something to .. ‘see where this goes’.. this was going to be IT..my LIFE .my future .., so from that conversation .. I chose to give it EVERYTHING !Every once in a while I still yell at my self .. WAKE UP!!! And I ask my self the real questions .Im I giving it EVERYTHING!! For to live the life of my dreams … I must do it COMPLETELY AWAKE.
Special thanks to @officiallindaikeji for letting us into her beautiful space and being such an amazing host .. and to the dream team that worked on this .. etidunju ?

    OMG! So beautiful! The cover picture is overdone though, makes her look so different but the rest, especially the last = ??

  6. BeeBee

    June 25, 2017 at 9:56 am

    The best ever I have seen her look. At least there is some finesse and elegance about her not her usual ‘villageoise’ look.
    Linda, use this MUA and stylist more or find a team that understands your body. Why have all that money and lack in elegance?

    • The Real Oma

      June 25, 2017 at 11:12 am

      Bad belle.
      You know you could have commended this styling without insulting Linda’s own style, right?

    • Mulikatutiata

      June 25, 2017 at 11:21 am

      Villegoise razz look.! ????

    • Diamond

      June 25, 2017 at 6:57 pm

      Linda never looks ‘villageoise’. If you say she posts razz stuff on her blog, then i’ll agree. But for looks, you are so wrong. Do you follow her on IG? I doubt!

  7. Bissy

    June 25, 2017 at 9:57 am

    Beautiful… make up artist did a very clean and subtle make uo, its a bit starnge because we haven’t seen linda change her hairstlye and make up. Stucked up babe but this pictures are so nice

  8. Valentina

    June 25, 2017 at 10:23 am

    OMG, This is beautiful. Jeez

  9. Valentina

    Awww I’m so proud of Linda, even though I don’t know her personally. she’s seems awesome

  10. king Bey

    June 25, 2017 at 10:37 am

    That moment Ty bello tried so hard to filter Linda to become too light lol after you people will say light skinned girls are not the real deal….Linda enjoy your money

    • The Real Oma

      June 25, 2017 at 11:14 am

      ODE.
      Its not your fault, it is those who keep making beautiful dark skinned women like Linda look fair i blame.

  11. Lliki

    June 25, 2017 at 10:42 am

    Linda is more beautiful than this in real life! Why change her beautiful ebony skin colour tone to a fair skin.
    They shouldn’t have bothered to make her light skin. I don’t like the pictures but I love Linda.

    • The Real Oma

    Wow the first picture is just class on its own. God ty bello and her team does wonders to people. The transform you so effortlessly that people begin to wonder.

  13. Jemimah

    June 25, 2017 at 10:58 am

    Nah. Not feeling the photos. The 4th photo (green) is lovely though. She looks older and almost unrecognizable in the others. TY Bello no too try for this shoot. What’s with the big hella mess on her head?

  14. Anon

    June 25, 2017 at 11:04 am

    A test run for the big day? Linda “chopping life” Ikeji.

    A very wicked MUA, bad hair do over photoshoped pics! Makes my darling Linda look like she’s 50! This is not nice at all Linda is way finer than this pls

  16. Cookie

    June 25, 2017 at 11:05 am

    The picture of her in the green dress is the best picture,that looks more like Linda and it should have been used as the cover picture,or the 2nd picture. Ty Bello didn’t impress me on this shoot and she usually does,Linda’s beauty wasn’t really captured in most of the pictures,she looks quite different. Outfits are really nice though,but her hair in the cover picture looks odd and somehow on her head.

    About time she got this This Day Cover/feature,it took too long. Whether anyone likes it or not,Linda has done exceptionally well for herself and for women in Nigeria. She is a brand and force to reckon with.
    You don’t have to like her personality,but her story is an inspiration and source of hope,encouragement etc, to women who want to achieve anything against all odds.

      Sister can you do any better. See epistle untop someone’s else’s shoot.
      Why can you people ever celebrate things and it’s always women bashing other women.
      You don’t see men making these kinds of comments on themselves.
      You will see “guy you look sharp” “guy your style is cool””
      But women never. Beautiful pictures.
      We are all human with our individual flaws learn to appreciate others.

  17. Nky

    June 25, 2017 at 11:12 am

    I love the styling but the make up and photos are overtly done. Her skin tone is way darker in reality and Linda is a beautiful size 14 & not a size 10.

    • Jade

      June 25, 2017 at 2:55 pm

      Size 14? Have you seen how slim Linda is. No way she’s 14. I believe I’m bigger than her and I’m U.S size 6 sometimes 8(if I eat too much).
      Not feeling the photos, she looks good with a subtle makeup not overtly done.
      It’s nice to see her switch up her typical long weave look.
      But if the bun was smaller it would have been better.

    This is the best I’ve seen of Linda!! She looks stunning. She’ll make such a beautiful bride. The styling is perfect not sure about the hair. She looks elegant!!

  19. jinkelele

    June 25, 2017 at 11:26 am

    Linda is not size 14
    Size 12
    And I agree , cover photo should have not been used, all that lightening of her tone.
    Maybe they should have used the black and white version.
    Not my favourite TV shoot.
    Really like the shot of her in the green dress.

    Whether underdone or overdone, there’s one word for these pictures; ethereal!

  21. Nakoms

    June 25, 2017 at 11:30 am

    Linda Ikeji exemplifies the phrase “grudging respect”.

    Laura would be in heaven right now, i am sure she has framed these pictures up in her bedroom lol, but these are the best pictures of Linda ever, she should thank This Day Style and tYBello

  33. Josephine

    June 25, 2017 at 1:43 pm

    Love her or hate her, Linda is an ebony beauty. They’ve made her look 20 years older and 20 shades lighter. These looks would be perfect for Betty Irabor fair, older and elegant but not a dark, young, hot lady like Linda.

      June 25, 2017 at 2:09 pm

      Somebody wey don age finish. . . Honey, ty belo and aunty bimpe did their very best.

      Una no dey see how other people look when ty bello and aunty bimpe work on them? This one she looks like original she-devil here.

    • Tobi

      June 26, 2017 at 3:21 pm

      Hummmm i don’t think the picture aged her on the contrary they made her look quite wise and Royal. I think we are so used to seeing all these over filtered Instagram photos these daz that we automatically take glamour /sexy shots are the only kinda of photographs women should have. I feel the brief for these photo was to show a successful business woman reflecting the epitome Of perfection. And Osa age is Notting to be ashame of especially when you are a success.

    @Nakom,but who asked for respect sef ? God didn’t need to consult you before placing Linda where she is .okay.
    @Osa, so what are you doing here ?Your classy self should be somewhere else.
    About the aging thing, i take it, you will be dying very young. Your mind needs serious decluttering of hatred, petty prejudice and the likes.Don’t die on Linda’s matter, you hear.

    Beautiful optics. I especially love the subtle makeup. No unnecessary rainbow colours. Linda just looks effortless, relaxed and regal. Ty Bello is the best at her game her ability to catch the light with her lens is amazing. Shes certainly got an eye. Classy shots, me like.

    Linda is beautiful but these pictures don’t do her justice at all. The cover one especially aged her and the makeup was over done. I like the one in a green dress. Well done Linda you have done well for yourself!

    whose moment? Your moment? Or theirs?
