‘Better to have your own money than depend on men’ – Linda Ikeji to young ladies

Popular media personality, Linda Ikeji has urged young women to aim for financial success rather than relying on men to meet their financial needs.

She noted that being rich isn’t the “birthright” of men alone.

The mother of one explained that she would rather strive for financial freedom than depend on a man.

On her Instagram page, Ikeji wrote: “Dear young lady, I hear you! If that’s how you see life and want to live life, it’s your choice! To each his own. As for me, I’d rather be as rich as those men who must pay me for being beautiful. Being rich is not the birthright of men alone. I’d rather be their contemporary than waiting for their handouts.

“I know many believe it’s a man’s world; maybe it is, but with fearlessness, strength, determination, and grace, women can dominate and thrive in it. So, instead of waiting for men’s charity, I’d rather start early to fight for my dreams, build my business(es), break boundaries, and if God allows, shatter tables.”


She advised women to strive to be as rich or if possible, richer than their spouses.
