Ten most influential Nigerians for February 2016

This would be the first time I am making a list of anything on my blog. Coming up with this list wasn't funny though, but it's worth it. These people managed to get the attention of others, getting them talking, breaking records and being in the news. While you read this, expect more lists every once in a while and at least a list like this every end of each month. This list may not be at home with you, but I really would want to hear your opinion, it's very important. You sure would be surprised by who hit the number one spot. Enjoy...  

10. Chinonye J. Chidolue : She hits this spot for her 'Child Hero Funfair/Talent hunt'  held at Lumen Christi TV on valentine's day. The event saw the Premiere of a movie, 'Children of the Street'  which is a child Hero project. The event witnessed the presence of big names in the movie industry and saw to the gifting of various packages to children, basically children from motherless babies homes. Hers is a commendable effort. Chinonye is a script writer cum actress, soon her name would be house hold, just wait on that. 

9. Ayodele Daniel Dada : Ayodele broke into my list. Recently, he was everywhere in the news for graduating with 5.0 CGPA from University of Lagos. Such record breaking, as he is the first and only student with such results in the history of University of Lagos. He's tough. Got me wondering if that's a pass through heaven's gate. Lol.

8. William Eluagu : Not many people ever get the privilege of having news about them on Linda Ikeji Blog. William Eluagu got that for his artwork, 'Your Destiny is in your Hands' which was his final year project work at Yabatech. William has also been featured in various national newspapers. He even did get featured in my blog. Follow to read about William if you missed it. It's interesting to know that William's work was done using PET bottles.  

7. Runcie C.W Chidebe : A lot of efforts have recently been put on Cancer campaigns in Nigeria and these campaigns have been making waves and getting people enlightened about cancer. One leader of such campaigns is Runcie C.W Chidebe, the executive director of Project PinkBlue.

6. Davido : Dele Momodu si na chi. Lol. I can't fit to shout sha. From the baby mama scandal to the luxurious watches that keep future time to the Fader magazine cover and the Sony deal. Which musician isn't jealous of him presently? Davido rocked this month. 

5. TY Bello : She really made me feel bad for not having a photo bombing talent and for not hawking bread. TY Bello discovery of a talented model Olajumoke got people talking. Tinie Tempah won't forget his photo session with her quite soon. And poor Jumoke would forever remain grateful for the discovery.  

4. Peter, Paul and Jude Okoye: : It started with Peter telling the world that he's fired Jude. And Peter taking time to discuss the problems with their manager and brother Jude. Jude of course didn't keep quiet, but the height was Paul's picture upload that had Peter missing. The talks began, fans and followers all had things to say. The court case sha and the GLO scandal. I refuse to stop wondering o.  

3. Linda Ikeji : Never knew that bags could be very expensive. Never knew that people can detect fake bags from pictures. Nigerians and their unique talents. The only blogger that other bloggers blog about, Linda Ikeji was on every one's lips after posting pictures of her newly acquired bags. Surprisingly, some people allow themselves think she can't afford such bags even while living in a house worth over 500 million Naira. Hian, I just dey look her haters with three eyes.  

2. Naira depreciation : This is no human and I really wish it got the first slot on this list. The Naira depreciation palaver have tire me o, especially since match box started selling for 20 Naira and a bag of sachet water for 150 Naira. God, I got beloxxi cream crackers for 15 Naira as against 10 Naira. I don't want to wizard hunt, my own is that every one has an opinion about this whole issue that is affecting my purse big time. Biko, who ever it is that is in charge should do something.

1. Olajumoke Orisaguna : From hawking bread and photo bombing Tinie Tempah on TY Bello's shoot to a super model and a motivational speaker in one month. Who does that? Every news media has news about Jumoke and the deals she's been nailing. Jesus Christ, the geh have reach CNN o. She's been making people talk. Over 30k instagram followers in one month. An illiterate bread seller turned celebrity. God of wonders is still alive. I hope someone else hits the number one spot here next month, but the way Jumoke is going, that's a rare chance.


  1. Weird....... i totally agree with you, every single name on this list is worth it

  2. Lol... What a list!

    No1 sure deserves a medal... Olajumoke became every bread hawker's wish all of a sudden. No hawker, in fact, no bread seller - not even the suya sellers would in their lifetime escape any object with a digital eye again.
