Popular blogger, Linda Ikeji, has sent a message to her gender as regards relying on guys for financial assistance.

According to the woman who has become one of the most successful new media brands on the continent, apart from the fact that she is ready to work hard like men, they must also pay her ‘for being beautiful’.

She said ladies too should be able to work so they could be rich as the guys who they look up to for finance.

The Banana Island, Lagos-based blogger emphasised the significance of fearlessness, strength, persistence, and elegance, encouraging women to take control of their own lives by pursuing their aspirations, starting companies, and breaking down boundaries.

She noted in an IG post:

“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.”
