Linda Ikeji Moves into Luxurious Multi-Million Naira Office, Expands into Radio, TV & Music

A week after The Punch Newspaper’s Sunday Scoop broke the news that Nigerian celebrity blogger Linda Ikeji had moved into a multi-million Naira office in Lekki Phase 1; and would be expanding into radio, television and music, the blogger takes to Instagram to confirm the news.

“6 years ago, I shut down my office, packed my stuff and went home because I could no longer afford rent,” wrote Ikeji, yesterday, on her Instagram page. “Look at me now. #Newoffice + #Mypersonallounge. #Grateful. #LindaIkejiTV. #LindaIkejiRadio. #LindaIkejiMusic. #LIS. #LIB ☝#AmazingGod.”

Ikeji also shared pictures of her personal office, television, radio and music suite.

According to Sunday Scoop, Ikeji’s new space is divided “into 22-room offices, housing studio, editing suite, two lounges, VIP waiting room, radio booth, section for her yet- to- be unveiled Linda Ikeji Music, LIS administrative office, bloggers office and her own office.”

The 22-room office allegedly costs N10 million per annum, and Ikeji allegedly spent N85 million remodeling and furnishing.

In addition,  Sunday Scoop quoting a source said, “Linda has finally registered her company and is planning to move on to greater things beyond the success that everybody can see. She feels there is still much that she could still achieve, there are unconquered territories and many unexplored opportunities between the worlds of social media she needs to explore. She is not just satisfied with being the number one blogger and she doesn’t want to remain a one-man business anymore. She has the track record and what it takes to function as one of the business houses in Africa and that is what she is doing.”

Congratulations to Ikeji. As it stands, there are far and few successful women entrepreneurs in media and entertainment consistently operating on a multi-million naira level. The few names are Mo’Abudu of Ebony Life TV, and Uche Pedro of Bella Naija. It is good to see Ikeji added to the mix.

Longtime readers of her blog, myself included, can certainly remember when she launched her modeling agency and magazine company, and when she in fact had to “pack up and move home” as she puts it. Indeed, hard work, albeit involving a lot of controversies along the way, does pay off.

Cheers,
