Linda Ikeji Family:
From her formative years, around the age of 10, Linda discovered her love for writing and literature and began to put down some children’s fiction which was read and praised by all and sundry.
This is what inspired her to write more and as she began to grow, she realized that she had the love and passion for news writing too so instead of following the ways of her peers to party, play, and club, she took time to stay back home and watch the news, studying how it was always being reported.
When it was time for university, Linda chose the university of Lagos and put in to study mass communications but much to her dismay was given the English language course instead.
Not letting this small problem set her back, she set to work and decided to make the best of her course. To further support herself due to the humble background she had, Linda took up a job as a waitress, usher, bartender, and even, part-time model, to make ends meet.

Linda Ikeji Career
None of these business ventures were moneymakers back then and in the end, she had to bring the curtains on her modeling career in 2005. She picked up a little experience in bogging while holding a column for a celebrity magazine which packed up along the way also.
Despite all of these, Linda failed to give up. After her university education, Linda Ikeji had still not given up on the journalism dream despite all of the side attractions and launched a business brand called the Black Dove entertainment (inspired by Silverbird) but at this, she failed again.
She even meant for the business to be a kind of modeling agency on the side but the plan never did take off.
Instead of getting discouraged, this spurred Linda on to try her hands in new parts of the industry. She tried her hands at the magazine industry, launching FM & B but after just two editions, the costs of production caught up with her and she could no longer fund the project. At this point, any ordinary entrepreneur would have resigned to fate but Linda was not ordinary.
