Linda beat Folorunsho Alakija, one of the richest women in the world, Mo Abudu, one of Africa’s most successful women, and Nigerian songstress, Tiwa Savage.


 Linda is one of the pioneers of blogging in Nigeria, an activity she picked up as a past time and has developed in the last decade to become one of Africa’s foremost gossip site, with a market value of over one billion naira.
 At 36, she is well worth billions of naira from the success of her blog, but that did not stop her from expanding into new territory with the establishment of an online TV network (Linda Ikeji TV), radio station (Linda Ikeji Radio), music website (Linda Ikeji Music), and very recently LIS – Linda Ikeji Social. Whether it is pioneering the art and business of blogging or steadily building a media empire, Linda Ikeji has through a combination of hard work, consistency, innovative thinking, and creativity, cemented her status as a media mogul, and now as Nigeria’s most influential woman.
