Popular Nigerian blogger, Linda Ikeji is set to expand her media business into 4 new areas – online radio station, TV station, music website and LIS; as she takes a giant step closer to achieving her life long goal of owning a cable TV channel.
After about 5 years of consistent blogging without any major break, Linda finally got her desired breakthrough in 2011 and since then, she has steadily raked in millions of naira every month from sponsored posts, custom ads, Google ads, top banners and site takeovers. But having done this for about 10 years now, Linda is ready to take up a new challenge in the media business.
She made the announcement of her expansion via a blogpost yesterday, where she said: “So aside Linda Ikeji Blog, which you amazing readers have helped me grow in the last 10 years, (LIB will be 10 in November 2016), I’m creating four new brands under Linda Ikeji Media Ltd. The first is Linda Ikeji TV. I’m creating my own online TV Network. And in my new office, we built a studio where we can shoot some of our programmes. Our TV shows will include reality shows, entertainment/sport programmes, health/food programmes, game shows, talks shows etc…and eventually even a series. Some of our programmes will also air on terrestrial TV.
“The second brand is Linda Ikeji Radio…but not a radio station like many have thought. It’s an online radio (at least for now) and at the office, I built a podcast studio where we can operate…and some of our shows will be aired live. The 3rd brand is Linda Ikeji Music…it’s a strictly music website for everything music in Nigeria plus I’m also building a state-of-the-art music studio… Then there’s LIS. Which I hope will be my biggest brand yet. Maybe even bigger than LIB. I will be unveiling that in a week or so, and I will need your massive support with this one,” she concluded.
She also added that the new project will require the service of new hands which include: a front desk officer/receptionist, TV presenter, editors, producers, cameramen, entertainment/music/crime writers, radio hosts, sound engineers, HR, accountant, administrative staff, customer care, marketers and drivers but will keep the online community posted as to when and how to apply.
Here are the pictures of her new workspace as we wait for the unveiling of LIS in a week’s time.1 comment
