Linda Ikeji: I Was Kicked Out Of Miss Nigeria Contest In 2003 by tonyluyi1985: 9:30am On Jul 04
Billionaire Nigerian Blogger, Linda Ifeoma Ikeji has shared a touching story during her struggling days of how she failed to win the Miss Nigeria contest in 2003.

Number 8 at the 2003 Miss Nigeria pageant. I thought I was going to win but I didn't even make top 10. That night was one of the worse nights of my life. I remember just asking myself what I was going to do with the rest of my life because for some arrogant reason, I'd built a future around being Miss Nigeria even before the pageant held. Sigh. For two straight days I cried wondering what to do next.

I wanted to be successful. I wanted to be somebody. I wanted to be rich. And here I was being told that I wasn't even good enough to be Miss Nigeria...lol.

After a few days of feeling sorry for myself, I got fired up. I said to myself, this life isn't going to defeat me or pass me by. I must count. I'll fight with every bone in my body to be successful. I don't care how long it will take but one day, I'll matter. Well, I'm still fighting but I'm doing very okay now! �

For everyone fighting for their dreams right now and keep getting disappointed, please don't let it discourage you. Failure is part of success. Every disappointment, every NO, everytime things don't work out is for you to have a story to tell tomorrow. As long as you don't give up, as long as you're persistent, as long as you believe in yourself and your dream even when others don't believe... success will find you. And God will sit next to you and never leave your side. I wish you all well and I hope all your dreams come through. �

Lol..

Linda would go on to pioneer the blogging space in Nigeria and dominate it , especially during the yaradua and GeJ years ..

She was close to the powers that be at the time , and was secretly awarded A PR( public relations) contract by the GeJ adminstration to the tune of 10billion naira.

After that , the rest was history ..

And that is why she is always mentioned in the DASUKI files as a receptor of slush funds ....

I love bold women like Linda Ikeji. She is a story that speaks of the greatness of any Nigerian woman who fight against all odds to be something.

Linda Ikeji makes weak, egoistic and most importantly financially handicapped Nigerian men have sleepless nights.It doesn't matter if the man is rich, as long as he is egoistic marriage with a successful Nigeria woman is hardly attainable. That's where I have a problem with Linda... It's difficult to be a single billionaire and have a good husband in Nigeria.Many Nigerian men in their millions can't stand a successful single woman,no matter how you got your money.... Hardwork or otherwise.
That's why Linda should go beyond Nigeria men. I can't be a Linda Ikeji and narrow my search around Nigeria men. Infact my life time consideration Will torchlight around foreign billionaire like myself in their late forties and beyond. Nigeria men can't handle billionaire wives/girlfriend, their empty ego won't let them. You can keep them as your drivers and stewards ONLY, and employ them for minor domestic roles . Going further, she can extend employing highly unbiased intelligent technocrats who are open minded. For me I rather employ a gay Nigerian technocrat, and may decide to have them as PA. I have studied this sexuality and trust me the intelligent ones will give you want you want. They will work with you and around without giving you emotional troubles.

If I have the kind of money this lady has, I will lodge in 5 stars hotels around the world so I can meet white haired billionaires! Advance Men with substance that their kisses alone makes my business gains triple. Men that will place me on paparazzis and not these nairaland cheap guys, who abuse successful ladies yet they have sisters that _4cks for free and still deminds to be loved.
