Famous Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji, has narrated how she was kicked out of the Miss Nigeria beauty pageant in 2003.
The mother of one who recently took to her Instagram page to flaunt her expensive Cartier gold and diamond bracelets narrated how she was devastated after she knew she didn’t make top 10.
According to Linda, she cried for days before she decided to move on.
She wrote, ” 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.”
Popular Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji, has taken to social media to share multiple videos and photos of her Cartier gold and diamond bracelets.
The mother of one narrated how she was lured by her younger sister, Laura Ikeji, into the lifestyle of buying bracelets.
"My sister said to me the other day, every big girl I know has cartier bracelets except you. I said to her, what is Cartier? I'm kinda a big girl so I went and bought three at the same gaddem time. The ones with diamonds. I also threw in a Chopard bracelet. Looks lovely, huh? Crazy thing is, up until December 2020, I had only one bracelet....but now I'm racking up a nice collection (wanna see more?) To be honest, can't figure out why I didn't care much for jewelry...
