Today, Linda Ikeji turns 36 and to start the auspicious day, the celebrity blogger took to her page to announce this, and also request for fans prayers and good wishes.
In the heartwarming post, one point sticks out: she yearns to bear a man’s name and children.
“My prayer as I turn 36 today is to find an amazing guy soon, settle down, have a bunch of kids and continue to live, impact my world and make a difference. Please say a prayer for me! I mean it,” she said.
To family, friends, fans and haters who always raise troll her over getting married, her success as Africa’s top blogger is not enough: she needs a man’s name to make her complete.
Speaking with Genevieve Magazine in August on the pressure to marry, here’s what Linda Ikeji said:
“The pressure is so intense right now I feel like going to husband market – if there is any such thing- to buy myself some breathing space. Give me a break you people.”
Judging from her birthday post, one can conclude that although successful women are averse to the incessant pressure to marry, a woman also yearns for a man and marriage; and this is irrespective of her success.
