“I Once Withdrew $10m Just To Look At It And Return It” – Dangote (Watch Video)'

, Africa’s richest man who spoke at Mo Ibrahim governance weekend ongoing in Abidjan, disclosed that he once withdrew $10m just to look at it.
The Billionaire who disclosed that he knew he was rich on paper but had to convince himself that he was indeed rich, said he drove to a bank, withdrew $10 million, took it home, put it on his bed, looked at it, and returned it back to the bank the following day.
“The way it is that when you first start a business, your target is to make your first million. Fine, I did that,” Dangote told Mo Ibrahim.
“After a year or so, I realized that I had much more, and I said ok, fine, all these numbers are just written numbers. One day I went to a bank, and at that time, there were no restrictions, and I wrote a cheque and cashed $10m from the bank and put it in the boot of my vehicle, and I went home and I opened it and I looked at $10m and I said ‘now I believe I have money’.”

It’s already widespread news that Davido’s 2017 single; “Fall,” has already caught American’s attention as a result of the massive airplay that it currently gets on US radio.
After debuting at number 26 on US Urban Radio Chart (a chart that measures the songs that is being played the most on US radio), “Fall” has been moving all the way up on the chart since then. It once moved from 26 to 21.

Linda Ikeji: Blog, Net Worth (Forbes, 2018) & Why She’s Unique!

Linda Ikeji: Blog, Net Worth (Forbes, 2018)  & Why She’s Unique!

Linda Ikeji net worth

She is a Nigerian blogger in her mid-thirties, CEO of LindaIkejiBLOG.COM. Enterprising, creative and probably one of the most talented bloggers in the entertainment industry, Linda Ikeji prides as one of the most outstanding and very influential bloggers Nigeria, and indeed Africa has ever produced. Welcome to the world of Linda Ikeji, the billionaire owner of Linda Ikeji blog.
Here are 5 amazing things you probably didn’t know about Linda and her blog.

1. Linda Ikeji Net Worth Humble Beginnings

Linda is one of those people who never had a silver spoon. She was responsible for fending for herself and her family from the tender age of 17 years. Pushed by failure from her modeling career, she created Linda Ikeji’s Blog as a passionate way to while away time.
However, her blog didn’t immediately become popular at the time. Linda ikeji started out as a “struggling blogger” in 2006. Yes, Linda could barely average a few hundred daily visits on her blog when she started her blogging career. She struggled with traffic, but never relented on growing the blog.
Today, the Linda Ikeji Blog has become a top brand in Nigeria and even beyond. It has practically become an enviable money spinner, which rakes in at least five million naira monthly for the Africa’s richest blogger. Linda makes huge money through her blog from the adverts run by top Nigerian companies and entertainment business outfits. Her blog also enjoys between 100,000 to 250,000 visits from over 180 countries daily.
The current linda ikeji blog is currently worth more than $12 million Dollars in value! Linda Ikeji net worth at the moment is over N3.2 billion naira. Can you beat that?

2. Linda Ikeji Blog Recognition by Forbes

It is no news that Linda Ikeji has received numerous awards and accolades from home. However, what is news is that Linda Ikeji’s Blog has traveled beyond the shores of this land. Quite recently, she was recognized as one of the most outstanding bloggers in Africa.
Of course, Linda remains a force to reckon with when it comes to celebrity gists, entertainment, and so on. In the August edition of Forbes, Linda debuts in the prestigious Forbes Africa magazine and tagged as Nigeria’s highest paid blogger.
That edition of Forbes Magazine was meant to honor and appreciate the participation of women in business. According to the Managing Editor of Forbes, Chris Bishop, the edition mirrors some of the most prominent and powerful women to date.
The Forbes recognition is a great achievement for the Lady blogger, owing to the prestige and glamor associated with being featured and celebrated on Forbes list, a feat which even more influential people never achieve.

Update
: Google, the popular search giant, recently announced that Linda Ikeji is the most popular searched term in 2014. Wow, out of all the hundreds of billions of searches Nigerians made in the year through Google ? Not even the name of our president or “Nigeria” came top? That is a very remarkable position to attain! Linda ikeji carOther awards the blog has earned include: Best Daily Read, Nigerian Blog of the Year, “Most Controversial Blog” and Best Entertainment Blog.

3. Linda Ikeji  is a Multibillionaire!

Fame and wealth are two inseparable twins—one follows the other! Just as it was rightly pointed out above, Yes Linda Ikeji is a multimillionaire. Linda is so rich from her blogging efforts that she could practically afford anything she wants.
She has bought properties worth millions of naira for her parents in a choice part of Lagos. Moving from a jaw-breaking 2008 Toyata Camry she bought in 2011, the one-time “struggling model” has added the latest 2014 Range Rover Sport to her fleet of cars. Both cars are worth millions of Naira. linda-ikeji-mansion
***Updates: In 2015, Linda bought a mansion worth over 600 million naira in Banana Island, Lagos to the surprise of many. Well, blogging has really paid her pretty well!

4. Fame Also Made Her Vulnerable

It is often said that “the rich also cry”! The success and popularity of Linda Ikeji’s blog has brought her not only friends, but numerous enemies too. Fame seems to have left her exposed to too many criticisms. Numerous dirty allegations and counter-accusations have been leveled against her in a bid to get her down.
Linda has been slapped with series of accusations of prying into the private lives of Nigerian celebrities. For example, she has received strong verbal assaults and legal threats from popular actors such as Richard Mofe Damijo, Jim Iyke, Stella Damascus just to mention a few.
In October, she was the subject of a Copyright Infringement case filed with Google by one Mr Aye Dee. This led Google to take down her blog but it was eventually restored 24 hours later when the dispute was withdrawn.
It is interesting to note that Mr Aye Dee turned out to be Linda’s former mentor and close associate with whom she claimed to have lost contact a few years ago. Mr Aye Dee felt insulted that Linda Ikeji left him because of fame even though his advice was instrumental to the success of her blog.
Hence, jealously made him cook up the Copyright allegations case. Anyway, Linda admitted to be partly guilty of the using other people’s content, sometimes forgetting to give credit, and apologized for it!

5. She is still Single!

Yes, Linda has it all—money, fame, beauty—but one! However, she is yet to experience the joy of marriage. Or may I say, the test of marriage? As a Nigerian woman living in a culture where a woman is believed to be incomplete no matter how accomplished she is until she claims the title of Mrs., one can imagine how unfulfilled.
However, marriage is a big ocean which you must not dive into unprepared, no matter the pressure. It is a common thing to find divorce among Nigerian celebrities nowadays. So, it may really be worth taking one’s time. Nevertheless, Linda should consider the fact time is not on her side.
Health-wise, doctors agree that the probability of producing healthy children and having safe deliveries diminishes as a woman ages. Therefore, it will be wise for her to make hay while the sun shines. Wishing Linda Ifeoma Ikeji, Nigeria’s Queen of blogging, all the best in life!

Nigeria since independence 1960

Nigeria since independence 1960

Nigeria since independence 1960


Key events in the history of Nigeria since independence from Britain in 1960:
Map-of-Nigeria
– First Coup –
In January 1966 the first in a series of military coups takes place amid dissatisfaction with progress after colonial rule.
Significantly, it is also triggered by the fact that most high government office holders are Hausa-speaking Muslims from Nigeria’s north.
The main figures behind the coup are ethnic Igbo officers, from the mainly Christian south.
In a counter-coup the same July, Igbo officers are killed and a brutal pogrom of Igbo civilians occurs in the north, forcing thousands to flee to their southeastern heartland.
– Biafra war –
For 30 months between 1967 and 1970, civil war rages in the southeast after Igbo separatists declare an independent republic of Biafra.
More than one million dies, most of them Igbos, from the effects of war, famine, and disease.
– succession of generals –
In 1975 General Yakubu Gowon is overthrown by General Murtala Mohammed, who is assassinated the following year.
General Olusegun Obasanjo takes charge and rules until 1979 when he becomes Africa’s first military leader to hand over power voluntarily to an elected president.
President Shehu Shagari holds on until 1983 when he is toppled by General Muhammadu Buhari — the current civilian president seeking a second term.
Buhari is himself ousted in 1985 by General Ibrahim Babangida, who resigns in 1993.

– Activist executed –
Plans for the civilian rule are shelved after the military cancels elections widely seen to have been won by businessman Moshood “MKO” Abiola. General Sani Abacha takes over.
In 1995 writer Ken Saro-Wiwa, who fought for a fairer share of the oil wealth for the people of Niger Delta region, is executed after an internationally condemned trial.
After Abacha dies in office, Obasanjo returns as civilian president in 1999 and is re-elected in 2003.

– Islamic law in the north –
In 2000, a year after the civilian rule is restored, 12 states in the mainly Muslim north opt to reintroduce Islamic Sharia law in parallel to the state and federal legal system.
Over the next few years, ethnic and religious tensions mount, particularly in the central states, leading to violence that leaves thousands dead.

– Boko Haram emerges –
In 2009 a group known as Boko Haram launches an uprising in northeastern Nigeria, sparking days of clashes with the military in which some 800 people are killed.
The radical Islamist group begins an insurgency with dozens of attacks targeting schools, churches, mosques, and symbols of the secular state.

– Deadly post-poll unrest –
In 2011 Goodluck Jonathan, a Christian from the south wins presidential elections against Buhari, the former military ruler from the Muslim north.
Rioting breaks out in mainly northern states, leaving nearly 1,000 people dead in days.

– Boko Haram escalation –
In 2014 Boko Haram kidnaps 276 schoolgirls at Chibok in Borno state, sparking international outrage.
In August the group proclaims a “caliphate” in areas in the northeast under its control.

– Buhari elected president –
Buhari beats Jonathan in 2015 elections on pledges to defeat Boko Haram and corruption. It is the first time in Nigeria’s history the opposition has defeated an incumbent president at the ballot box.
In 2015 an offensive by armies of Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, and Niger drives the jihadists out of the captured territory.

– Boko Haram split –
Boko Haram splits into two rival factions — one led by long-time leader Abubakar Shekau, the other by Abu Mus’ab al-Barnawi, whose father, Muhammad Yusuf, founded the group.
Both pledge allegiance to the Islamic State group but IS only recognizes Barnawi, whose group steps up attacks on military bases in 2018.
