I Was Car-less For 2months ‘Cos Of N250k – Linda Ikeji Goes Down Memory Lane

Nigeria’s topmost blogger, Linda Ikeji reveals how a car dealer seized her first car from her after she failed to meet up with promised balance…

 

Media entrepreneur, Linda Ikeji moments ago took to her Instagram page to share her bitter ordeal with a car dealer who seized her car after she was unable to pay up after her due date.

The blogger disclosed that she bought the car (Toyota Celica) in 2007, but was only able to pay half of the total amount, which was N350,000 with a promise to pay the other half at the end of three months.

She also disclosed that her plans were shattered by several of her debtors as she was only able to raise N100,000 which made the car dealer to take the car off from her, subjecting her to return to a state of no car.

See below for her post…

I bought this car in 2007. It cost 700k back then but I made a down payment of 350k to pay the remaining 3 months later. After 3 months, I’d been able to pay only 100k of the remaining 350k & the car owner came to my house one day to seize the car. Lol. I can laugh now but it wasn’t funny back then. I remember my dad followed me to the man’s house to beg for him to return it to me and give me more time. The man refused. So I was carless for about 2 months but because I knew how important having a car was to my business (I was always running around), I knew it was top priority to raise the balance.

I had a modeling agency back then and so I started going to bother all the ad agencies owing me money. I became a nuisance at their offices…lol. Before I’d wait for them to call and ask me to come collect my cheque but now, I wanted the money now now. Some managed to give me, some didn’t but I was finally able to raise the 250k balance & got my car back.

Fast forward to 5years later. Between 2012 to 2018, I’veu probably bought about 15 cars for family, friends and staff. And none was 700k…lol.

Seeing this photo again brought back memories and reminded me of how God works. And how your life can change from not having enough to having so much, you can share with others.

You life can change for the better in an instant and that instant can last forever. Just remember to always hold on to God. He’s watching. He’s seeing your struggles and one day, He’ll hold your hands and never let go. .
.
God is holding my hand so much right now that I was able to solely finance lindaikeji.tv from advertising money made from another platform he blessed me with…lindaikejisblog. All the crazy equipment we have, studios, office, mansion, content, manpower etc was solely financed 100% by LIB.

God works in ways we sometimes don’t understand! He can make you wait. I waited for 14 years. He hasn’t forgotten you. Be patient. He listens. He’s watching. And He will eventually come to hold your hands when it’s your turn. And when he does, your life will never be the same. Just never stop believing in Him. Your time is near. I declare God’s enormous blessings into your life. Say amen!”
