Welcome To the Reality Show: Keeping Up With The Ikejis.

The new TV series Starts now

Since Linda Ikeja came out with the sizzling news of her pregnancy in a way that left many minds wondering and tongues wagging, and then with a brinkmanship she consciously initiated what the renowned Russian Psychologist Ivan Pavlov developed as classical conditioning. In his dog experiment, Pavlov showed how the human mind can be conditioned to be manipulated for certain benefits.

Overtime classical conditioning has been applied in formulating and building several teaching and learning methods, clinical treatment, advertising and marketing, political campaigns and celebrity meme.

And in recent times, it has been the vehicle that drives personality marketing in the social media. Who else would aptly deploy this concept that the social media guru herself; Linda Ikeji.

Applying the elements of this theory, Linda Ikeja has used the story of her pregnancy, love gone sour and the arrival of the double billionaire baby Jayce Jeremi to project and annex an overflow of emotions into entrenching her value further into the currency of social gossip and of cause growing commercial credit of her global brand.

Before now she had carefully laid down a springboard that would catapult her family and her sisters in particular into the media vein stream.

Doing this, she and her sisters took lesson notes from the pages of the number one celebrity family. Yes, the Kardashians.

This infograph shows how the Ikeji sisters-Family- are set for the next spin; Keeping Up With The Ikejis just like the Kardashian sisters-family- did.

 The Family Cast

Like the Kardashion family of six kids; Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall, Kylie and Rob, the Ikeji family is made up; Vera, Linda, Laura, Sandra, Benita, Edna and Peks . The Ikejis unknown and the Kardashians though relatively known, were shot to limelight as a result of what has made one of them a celebrity- the media- blogging and reality TV respectively.

Both Kim and Linda have made  names and amassed  fortune for theirselves  by  putting their private lives on the social media, their families and putting  two of  their sisters upfront;  Kourtney and Khloe as well as Laura and Sandra all gained greater popularity and achievement through them.

And the activities of these three on both sides have kept their followers on the edges trying to  Keep Up With them.

Laura never misses out on a chance to sing her big sister, Linda Ikeji’s praises – and understandably so; the superstar blogger has been an amazing sister to all her siblings, constantly lavishing them with money and the most expensive gifts. This is my sister, her name is Linda, Linda is rich, not just money rich,

Kim Kardashian And Linda Ikeji Go Toe To Toe

Publicity stunts have not just changed their status but also that of their families as they have built their own social dynasties with followers all over the globe. They are both very good with social media and at creating a business empire and are protagonist of the “celebrity worship,” culture. Both are also perfect examples about the power of marketing even if the product is yourself.

 Kim sits on a big Tv reality show, Linda sits on big reality blog and they both rock their world.

Kim took the popular podium after a sex tape she made with Ray J was leaked. Kim filed a law suite against Vivid Entertaiment who had distributed the film as Kim K Superstart. She later settled for an out of court $5 million and then took her chance.

Though already popular and rich, Linda’s now has has her own emotional leak. Her Baby daddy’s cronies have written a rebuttal of Linda’s story.  They contend that;  “She was silly to have written all that because many have seen through her veneer of piety and pretence that she is just another desperate young lady who employed the oldest trick in the book— tie a potential suitor down with pregnancy, a source close to Sholaye revealed.

 “Linda desperately wove an incoherent story of how she met Sholaye, in one breath saying he lived in a three bedroom apartment in Lekki and in another saying he was a billionaire further lending credence to the insinuations that she just wanted to be Mrs Jeremi by all means and crudely deployed old feminine wiles to achieve that but in vain.”

Tracing the genesis of her relationship with the Delta State-born billionaire to one night in December 2015 shortly after moving into her Banana Island mansion and how they hit it off almost immediately, Linda wrote, “I was definitely searching and I fell in love almost immediately and so we became an item…It was a whirlwind romance. He was the funniest and most romantic guy I’d met up until that point, so it was easy to fall in love and I truly believed the feeling was mutual.” She went on to describe how one thing led to the other and ‘she fell pregnant’ even though the relationship had gone south. Linda welcomed a son whom she named Jayce Jeremi three months ago.

 “What Jeremi and Linda had was just a fling – a typical case of boy meets girl, just that in this case, there was a very desperate party. Jeremi was just out to have fun and there was not supposed to be any commitment or emotional attachment. But Linda had her plans from the moment she set eyes on him.”

“When Linda came up with the pregnancy tale and stormed his house crying and begging, Jeremi had to be diplomatic about it because he didn’t want to create a scene.

“He told her point-blank how disappointed he was and that if she was trying to lure him into marriage, she had another think coming. That was when Linda began to plead and blackmail him. Initially, she said it was a taboo from her part of Imo State to have a child outside wedlock. Later, she said Jeremi should just meet her father to assure him that he is the owner to save them from shame and what the world would think of her after she had deceived a lot of young girls about her pious life.”

But both Kim Kardashian and Linda Ikeji are marketing geniuses and what they market is self. Linda like Kim appears to be baring all, but her image is obsessively edited and scripted. Kardashian like Linda is a perfectionist, and she is a workaholic obsessed with fame and money.

They are both sexy (to some). Photogenic — with the help of massive make-up, hair styling, photo-shop, and expensive wardrobe.

For Kim her rich husband, rapper Kanye West posts highly sexual photos of her on Instagram. He also raps about her sex tape, bragging about their lifestyle: “Eat breakfast at Gucci. My  girl a superstar all from a home movie.” For Linda her billionaire baby daddy – Sholaye Jeremi Oil and Gas Business is now welcomed into the club. He has just been dragged into a life under the glare of the public.

The Ikeji’s Big Break

The Ikeji’s; Laura and Sandra succeeded in making a big media meal of the ‘proposal’ and ‘engagement’ of their sister, Linda to an undisclosed man.
On March 28, 2018, Instagram went wild immediately Sandra, who Linda, before the incident, bought a vehicle worth N30million, wrote, posted:

“Congratulations @officiallindaikeji So happy for you sweet sis! This tells me that sometimes the wait is worth it. Can’t wait to plan your special day!”

Also confirming the news, Laura Ikeji posted another photo of the blogger and captioned it: “Congrats Linlin @officiallindaikeji”

But in Linda’s own story there never seemed to be any engagement; “…Then I fell pregnant. It wasn’t planned, it just happened; though we talked about having a child together just two months before I fell pregnant. He said something about putting a billionaire baby inside me and I remember jokingly telling him that I’m also a billionaire so our child was going to be a billionaire on both side…and we laughed. But after I fell pregnant, things became extremely weird between us. If I tried to explain what happened, I wouldn’t be able to because it was confusing to me. We went from talking about the pregnancy and being okay with it; he even suggested I go to Dubai for my pre-natals as he didn’t trust doctors in Nigeria, to literally not talking to each other anymore. Around when I was about three months pregnant, he did come to see my parents and actually became very cool with my dad. They were literally exchanging Whatsapp messages every day. He later agreed to a traditional wedding which he didn’t follow through and then he switched. He began to treat me with so much hate and aggression that I and my family had to cut him off completely.”

So?  Just like the Kardashians did in 2007 after the leaked sex tape, the Ikejis are set to take the momentum of the Emotional Intelligence work they created, and take the media frenzy to the next level.
