Linda Ikeji Is A Gossiper & Not A Role Model - Toke Makinwa by eric1960: 9:40am On Apr 19, 2012
Popular radio and TV presenter Toke Makinwa has aired her thoughts about popular blogger and former model Linda Ikeji stating she ‘doesn’t think Linda Ikeji is a role model’.

Little known Makinwa who works as a radio presenter on popular urban radio station Rhythm 93.7 dropped her comments on air while she was co-anchoring ‘The Morning Drive’ recently.

‘I don’t think Linda Ikeji is a role model. She’s a gossiper, She sells gossip’, Makinwa said on the show and even appealed to her listeners not to take the likes of popular US blogger Perez Hilton and Miss Ikeji seriously.

Ikeji whose romance with Dan Foster ended controversially, published a fashion magazine before settling down fully with her blog.

And in just a few years, she’s moved from being media subject to media player; growing her platform to become one of Nigeria’s leading blogs; using mostly third party contents, reader engagement and shocking personal revelations. But, just like Perez and TMZ, she’s under regular fire from readers and celebs who think she often crosses the line.

But the successful blogger is not all about gossip. Passionate about human interest stories, she has often dedicated her blog to supporting worthy causes, a recent example being the case of Okeoghene Ighiwotho – the diabetic patient who lost his toes and was bedridden for six years.

Makinwa, however, is not impressed. ‘I’m appealing to the younger generation not to take Perez Hilton or Linda Ikeji as a role model’, she added.

Whoever takes media gossipers and paparazzi reporters as serious people and role models are at their own risk. Toke is right about Linda Ikeji, every piece of info is news to her skewed to suit her reports and her mesmerised audience.

I am Linda's fan and i am not finding this Toke thing funny.Go to Linda's blog,she has written about it.
Linda made her life on her own terms through struggling despite the fact that she's not from a rich home.
I was at a blog ladun liadi and there was a post about this toke..there were comments ranging from bleaching from black to white to being a runs girl.is it true?I do not know.The comments about her were so vile that the blog owner had to take down the post.
Nobody would ever call Linda a prostitute..
Anyways,i trust Linda fans.if she was planning on publicity,she will get very very negative comments.Na she go cry

Nobody should look up to a blogger maybe but Linda has a story of coming from grass to grace..That is what should motivate those who choose her as a role model not the stories on her blog

Finally,she is entitled to her own opinions though..

Linda Ikeji and Laila Ikeji are NOT the same person.
And Laila has NEVER claimed to be the same person as Linda!
If Laila wants to be taken serious,she needs to change that name asap!

Toke needs publicity and she's gonna get it- at least for the next few days

Dudes, check your dicco (not Abrahamic edition) very well. gossiper is an English word. It means a person given to tattling or idle talk. A person given to gossiping and divulging personal information about others.
