On Thursday, September 19, famous Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji shut down the Burj Khalifa hotel in Dubai to celebrate her 39th birthday in grand style, with a lot of Nigerian celebrities and socialites in attendance.
The mother of one had touched down Dubai with her family to mark her birthday and after the dinner, she posted photos of the grand event on her social media handles and that attracted a lot of talking points from her fans with many of them celebrating her.
In a post shared she shared on her Instagram page, Linda showed how much fun she was having with her family as they gathered at the Burj Khalifa for a lavish birthday dinner. She had her parents and siblings looking joyful as she celebrated the special occasion.
However, controversial journalist and daughter of one time Oyo State deputy governor, Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo would not have none of that as she took to her Twitter handle to say that the celebrity blogger is not 39 but 43 years of age.
Kemi expressed surprise that Linda would deceive Nigerians by telling all that she is younger than she really is.
It is on the record that Kemi and Linda have been at logger heads for many years now with the duo often throwing brick bats at each other at every given opportunity. Kemi once accused Linda of stealing her cousin’s fiancée as well as pinning her pregnancy on her baby daddy because she had no man to marry her.
Linda had posted on her Instagram page the following words:
“It’s my birthday today, guys! My last year as a 30-something year old! ???. But I am so grateful for how far God has brought me. For all the blessings I don’t take for granted; for my son, parents, siblings, great friends, dedicated readers of those blog, loyal fans, everyone who has followed my journey and to you reading this! Happy birthday to me! Thank you so much for all the well wishes. God bless you and yours! #Sept19 #Virgogirl”
But in reaction to the post, Kemi posted this on her Twitter handle:
“Happy 43rd birthday to #LindaIkeji. Fans Wikipedia age is 39th Birthday.”
