4. Linda Ikeji's cars

4.1. The Bentley Mulsanne - $310, 395 (108M) 

She bought this car just in 2018, at the peak of her career as a successful entrepreneur and this is the latest and most expensive car in her collection. The Bentley Mulsanne is intended to be a gift to her newborn child

Owning an enviable net worth, it is of no surprise Linda can make luxurious purchases for herself. But it is generous and affectionate of her to buy her family expensive cars as gifts. Beside the Mulsanne, Linda also has bought her sister a Mercedes-Benz GLE.

4.3. The Land Rover Sport - ₦25 million

Many think this was her first Land Rover and also the first luxury car she purchased back in 2016. It is a 2014 Land Rover Sport.

4.4. 2011 Infinity FX 35 - ₦8 million

This is a relatively masculine car, yet she bought it as a statement about her social position and her willingness to compete with men. The 2011 model was albeit fairly used but almost new and sold to her by Inspired Autos in 2013.

4.5. Toyota Camry - ₦700,000 (Now worth ₦2.5m)

This is the first car she ever purchased and it came with a touching story. She didn't have the money to purchase the car at one time but instead choose to pay in installments. After putting down half the price of the car, 350K, she made a promise to pay the balance of 350K after 3 months. She failed to deliver on the promise and the previous owner actually seized the car. After some determined attempts, she managed to raise enough money to buy the car off once and for all. It was back in 2008 when Linda was just 28.

When Linda started blogging as a hobby in 2006, she started on a free site, blogger.com and her blog name was lindaikeji.blogspot.com. She had no laptop and made her weekly posts at the time from a cyber café. However, her major break came in 2010 after she had managed to amass large online followership. Linda Ikeji’s blog became prominent for original and engaging content which kept her readers coming back for more and with that came massive traffic on the site which saw big brands like Unilever, MTN, GLO, political parties calling for advert placement on her blog.

As with every success story, there is also a failure story behind Linda Ikeji’s success story. After her graduation from the University, the passionate businesswoman had ventured into a modeling agency under the business name Black Dove Communications. She also tried her hands on magazine publishing under the brand name FM&B. Unfortunately, both businesses failed.
