The recent war between Linda Ikeji, the gossip blogger and Wizkid, the musician plus the following mixed reaction among their fans on social media ensued when the blogger reported a story on her blog about Wizkid being served quit notice at his Lekki residence. Wizkid was apparently not happy about the post and took it up on her and they both started trading words.
In 2013, Wizkid showed off his new place of abode and many people, including myself assumed he bought the house. But it’s been revealed that he only rented the place…and this is fact. His rent at the 4 bedroom duplex at Ayinde Akinmade in Lekki Phase 1 expired in January 2016 and for reasons best known to him, he refused to renew his rent.
He was served quit notice yesterday Friday April 1st. (His reps collected it on his behalf) and he was given until April 11th to vacate the premises. A source close to the singer said his people had already started to gradually move his things out of the house.
Then Wizkid replied back to the bloggers picture on instagram.
The artist took to the blogger’s Instagram page where he berated Ikeji for not measuring up to his achievement at 25 when she was at that age. Follwing the news the that the gossip blogger reported about him.
In addition to deleting the dirty comments made by the musician on her instagram page, the blogger posted an article on her blog refuting allegation of wild romance between her and the musician’s director as claimed by the musician in his first reaction.Adding that the musician’s Porsche automobile was on hire purchase.
Linda Ikeji’s reply
So my darling little ‘friend’ Wizkid came on my IG page this morning to blast me for writing yesterday that he was given quit notice at the Lekki home he claimed he bought some years ago, which he actually rented. He threatened to beat me up…called me an ugly old bitch…(I’m ugly? lol) says I don’t have a man (crying over that..) and called my mum a loser…(what a child). Anyway, all that don’t matter, people have said worse to me…what I wanted to address is the part where he said I slept with his director and he left me in a hotel…that one I will definitely want to address because some people actually believe it. That my dear friends, is a lie! Please continue… First and foremost, I’ve never met Wizkid one on one. I’ve only seen him once in real life on stage at a show a few years ago. I’ve never met anybody who is his director. Guess he put that line in his comments to defame me. You that mad that people now know the house is not yours? Lol. Trust me, if I knew someone was Wizkid’s director, I’d rather kill myself than sleep with him or any other entertainer for that matter (except maybe he’s my husband..hehe) because I know how some of these entertainers are…they kiss and tell a lot. You can’t afford to be messing around in their circle. So, no, I have NEVER slept with Wizkid’s director. I live a celibate life..most of the time. (Though, that has to end soon…I’m getting old and missing out on that part of life…lol) I’ve always been an advocate of women respecting their bodies and owning their own. And I feel sex should only happen when you’re in committed relationship (that is if you can’t wait till marriage) and I recommend celibacy for a long as you’re not committed to someone. There’s absolutely no dignity in sleeping around and messing around with different men. It’s ugly and God don’t like ugly. So no, I’m not that woman, and will never be that woman. Nice try, Wizkid! Having said that, I’m sure, you wonder why Wizkid is so mad at me? To be honest, I don’t know either. All I know is that his beef with me started a long time ago but he decided to start bashing me online after I refused a meeting with him. A few months ago, he asked his PR people to contact me, that he wanted to talk to me. For some reason, he thought I didn’t like him and I was hurting his image online. He wanted to see how I could write more positive things about him but I turned down the meeting. Not that I have anything against him, I sincerely don’t! I think he’s an amazing talent and one of the few music stars in Nigeria with a midas touch. So this wasn’t personal. I just didn’t want to meet him. If he lobbies me then it means I won’t be able to write anything about him anymore…and my job is to write…about everything, including entertainers. I am cordial with some of them…many of them I have never met. I try to stay away from gatherings where they are because the more friends you make in the entertainment industry, the less you can write. And that will inadvertently affect your work. The few ones that I call acquaintances, it’s hard to write about them because you feel you’re cool with them and even when you write, they call you to complain. So, the fewer ‘friends’ I have in the entertainment industry, the better my job will be. So Wizkid can bash me all he wants…but I will continue to do my job. Maybe he thinks the more he bashes me, then I will stop writing about him? Won’t work. But meanwhile, if he tells a lie about me, I will address it. LIB plans to be around for a long time…some of these people will come and go! :-). Thanks everyone and Wizkid fans for reading my response. Oh and by the way, did I mention that his Porsche car is also on hire purchase? Oh shit, I just mentioned that! And no, darling, you’re not 25! We know your real age! Continue to have an amazing career while I watch and continue to celebrate you. Kisses
Still at it Wizkid came back to brag about his “foundation” aiming at sending “1000 kids to school”, after Linda post about him living a fake .
Reacting to the conflict described by some as cyber bulling and counter bulling, some fans of both media personalities have taken sides with their favorite celebrities.
Wizkid can abuse linda that she is unmarried at 35 but it's okay to have 2 baby mamas at 25! Silly boy!

Linda can't take half of what she dishes out to these celeb. Ordinary fake bag issue, she wanted to die. But Wizkid is the childish one, Ok.

Linda Ikeji’S brother reaction
Moreso, Davido praising his friend about the issue and boasting about their friendship, but unfortunately Linda’s brother PEKSIKEJI replied him not to poke nose in the matter.
