Africa’s biggest blogger Linda Ikeji, founder of Lindaikeji blog, is expanding the frontiers of her business from just blogging, to other aspects of entertainment.
The media Mogul announced on August 22, 2016, on her blog, that she’s creating new brands including an online TV (Linda Ikeji TV), an online radio station (Linda Ikeji Radio), a music website (Linda Ikeji Music), and another called “LIS”
The blogger, with beautiful pictures of her offices and studio, gushed about her expansion when she said:
So aside Linda Ikeji Blog, which you amazing readers have helped me grow in the last 10 years, (LIB will be 10 in November 2016), I’m creating four new brands under Linda Ikeji Media Ltd. Continue to see all that plus photos of my new office..*wink*
The first is Linda Ikeji TV. I’m creating my own online TV Network. And in my new office, we built a studio where we can shoot some of our programmes. Our TV shows will include reality shows, entertainment/sport programmes, health/food programmes, game shows, talks shows etc…and eventually even a series. Some of our programmes will also air on terrestrial TV.
My goal is to eventually have my own TV channel on cable but we have to create enough content before we venture into that..which is what we will do for the next few months to a year.
The second brand is Linda Ikeji Radio…but not a radio station like many have thought. It’s an online radio (at least for now) and at the office, I built a podcast studio where we can operate…and some of our shows will be aired live.
The 3rd brand is Linda Ikeji Music…it’s a strictly music website for everything music in Nigeria plus I’m also building a state-of-the-art music studio…
Then there’s LIS. Which I hope will be my biggest brand yet. Maybe even bigger than LIB. I will be unveiling that in a week or so, and I will need your massive support with this one.
So, including LIB, I have five brands now to manage…Yay! I’m so excited. This is my dream… this is everything I have ever dreamed my life would be and more and I can’t thank God enough for giving me so much grace and showing me kindness. I pray favour into your lives also. I also want you to believe that your dreams can come true. Just keep working and believing!
Considering how Linda Ikeji reportedly makes up to fifty million Naira per month on Google Ads, sponsored posts and advertisements on her blog, a move like this is no surprise at all.
Linda Ikeji started her blog in 2006 and has risen to become one of the most influential women in Africa.
