The Linda Ikeji blog does
offer some signs of universality, however. People laughingly say that
the Kardashians are everywhere. Finding a Nigerian blog post dedicated
to Kylie Jenner wearing a blond wig shows just how ubiquitous they have
truly become. Yet the base purpose of Linda's blog is to be informative.
Unlike many other blogs, where the content centers around the
personality of the owner, this one is dedicated to keeping its followers
well-versed in what is happening in the wide world, the region, and the
nation of Nigeria..
It is also almost stunning to see how determined Linda Ikeji is. Just a
single day's postings will number well into the double digits and
include all sorts of fascinating news that one never hears anywhere
else. Perhaps typical of the content is the story of the hospital in
India which is making a special ward so it can operate on an Egyptian
woman who weighs upwards of 1000 pounds! There is news of a plane loaded
with gold bars that crashed in Zimbabwe. A quick peek into the Nigerian
immigration system shows 335 people being granted citizenship. There are
stories about "Nollywood" stars---i.e. the kings and queens of the
Nigerian movie industry. There are pictures of a woman who tried to
sneak her boyfriend out of jail inside a suitcase. All of this for a
single day, and that is barely scratching the surface.
This blog is truly a labor of love and quite frankly is giving wire
services around the world a real run for their money. If you are in the
mood for something very well done, very different, and very
off-our-own-beaten-track, then check out www.lindaikejisblog.com. You'll
be glad you did.
