|The Intrigues In The Linda Ikeji Copywright Infringement Saga. by spicyv1(f): 10:14am On Oct 10, 2014|
Let me start by stating I respect the grace upon Linda's life. I mean, she is not the best of writers, she is not a seasoned journalist, she is often accused of "never verifying" her stories before publishing (the case with Yvonne Nelson featuring Iyanya in a movie, amongst many others) and certainly not the best gossip peddler.
But, you gotta hand it to her, she is the most sought after...that is what I call grace!
Now, to the issue...I am somewhat amused(for lack of appropriate adjective) at how vengeful and scheming Linda can get. Y'all recall the Toke Makinwa and Tonto Dikeh saga? Linda is not someone you offend and apologize to and expect all to be forgiven and forgotten, nah she will draw the battle line and throw the eraser in the Atlantic ocean. She will get her pound of flesh, acting all innocent whilst doing so.
She warned Mr Aye Dee and co, in her first post about the whole drama. She said, "you guys don't know who you are dealing with". And, she has lived up to her warning. Lol. Now, after reading the published private chat between her and Aye Dee, I couldn't help but notice some oddity. It seemed too...scripted? Fictional? Edited? Not sure what it was but I felt there was some vital information missing.
So, I checked out Aye Dee on twitter. You know, as we always say, there are two sides to a story, I hoped to catch his side of the story and yep, I did.
He never denied that they had a conversation but was firm in stating the obvious, the chat published by Linda was edited, so there is more to the story. Another baffling thing was that Linda claimed that Aye Dee's name is Emmanuel Efremov (or so), a stalker who registered the name lindaikeji.net and 8 others, all in an effort to make money off her. Aye Dee's side, lindaikeji.net was actually registered on Linda's behalf and presented as a gift, far back in 2011, which she was so excited about. See the image of the convo, as posted by Aye Dee.
If you read the chat, you would see that he actually made reference to the address and asked her if she had forgotten. A question that didn't display any answer. She even expressed her unwillingness to have a website, yet she always claims her reason to be that her preferred names where all taken. Question, how come the screen displaying the convo from 2013 showed the name Aye Dee, yet she claims she thought it was her long lost love[s][/s] friend Alex? How come she chose to copy and paste instead of displaying the actual screen shot of the chat? So she can edit perhaps?
Aye Dee has stated, he would not publish the actual chat they had because it would make Linda look bad and insists the entire drama was solely a case of copy wright infringement, although I can't help but wonder if a bruised male ego ignited this whole drama.
I could go on and on, picking the oddities in the whole drama, but I will conclude by stating Linda should quit playing the victim. Quit riding on the ignorance of your fans and their thirst for juicy scandal to gain more publicity. You made mistakes, learn the lessons that should be learnt and move on.
I continue to wish you well.

Either ways, life continues coz the more you life the more U learn.
