One thought on “2018 budget: Appropriation scales second reading in Senate

  1. Due to the fact beginning her blog in 2006, Linda Ikeji has come to be one of Nigeria’s most prominent online voices.
    The 36-year-old former model website, known merely as Linda Ikeji’s Blog, is the 13th most well known in Nigeria, according to analytic
    corporation Alexa—ahead of any official news publications
    or websites. Ikeji has far more than 1.3 million followers on Twitter—half a million a lot more than Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari—and virtually 800,000
    on Instagram. Ikeji had announced in August that
    she intended to expand her media empire into four a lot more platforms—an on the web television station, an on the net radio station, a music web page and LIS, which she declined
    to determine until it was launched on Tuesday.

    Linda Ikeji Social is marketed by the blogger as a combination of Facebook, eBay and her blog.
    The platform has a equivalent functionality to Facebook, permitting users
    to post stories and chat with good friends. The twist, according to Ikeji, is that the platform has been monetized for users.
    Ikeji stated could consist of eyewitness photos or video. Ikeji said that the internet site
    would also spot ads on pages belonging to customers with more than 50,000 followers, with the customers then earning 20
    percent of the revenue. Ikeji mentioned that the concept for the
    web-site came after an encounter with two fans
    in April, who told her that Facebook and her internet site have been the
    only internet websites on the internet that they
    made use of. I wondered, and then the notion came to me: why can not
    I have a web page that’s a combination of both blogging and social
    networking? Nigeria has the largest Facebook user base in sub-Saharan Africa,
    with the social network saying in February that 16 million Nigerians employed
    the platform each month, with 100 % of users accessing the site through mobile.
    Ikeji shares a assortment of content across her
    platforms. Her Instagram functions as a style and fashion guide for followers, whilst her blog shares

    Lol. What would you do if this was genuine? Supply: TSRThis post first appeared
    on Linda Ikeji’s Blog. Read the original story right here.

    A dependable amebo stated the ex-model is dating a Yoruba guy.

    The thriving blogger who not too long ago bought a multi-million naira duplex residence for her parent in Lagos state Nigeria is not only an on-line-enterpreneur she
    has chain of style organizations she is currently running in the sunshine state.
    According to Wives Town Hall Connection, Linda who makes her money from marketing from different brands and on the internet ad
    networks is rated as the highest earning blogger in Nigeria
    currently. She has been living with her parents in a rented apartment in Surulere for years.
    Gistmaster exclusively gathered the Duplex
    she purchased for her parents is positioned in an estate in Surulere region of Lagos.
    It is a five bedroom duplex with an additional 5 bedroom bungalow situated
    proper behind it.

    Exactly where is she receiving the money? Has the APC replaced the PDP as her biggest alleged benefactor?
    So maybe we need to have to place this to rest and for all.
    Linda Ikeji does not, in truth, will need the money of any reich man,
    political celebration, or drug leader. You have to believe
    it: she tends to make all this revenue from blogging, from great old, consistent, difficult-charging, talented,
    break-the-news-and-the-gist-1st blogging. To convince
    you and shut this down for the really final time, we will do
    the maths for you. On Thursday, 11 August, we sat down – all of us with each other – and did an evaluation of Linda’s earnings in just one particular day, on just a single web-site.
    In 1 day, we counted 20 sponsored posts on Linda
    Ikeji’s website.

    TWENTY. And for good measure, we went back two weeks.
    That’s the typical. 20. Linda Ikeji’s posts go for 50,000 each
    and every. Now, for the reason that they already so pretty priced, she does not give discounts on this
    amount – no matter the bulk, at least for the larger market.
    Last two weeks, she updated the price to N55,000. But for the sake of argument,
    let’s go with N50,000. That implies that in just One DAY, final
    Thursday, Linda Ikeji made N1 million naira.
    And she makes this minimum N1 million Every single WEEK
    DAY. Devoid of fail. That’s N20 million naira per month,
    ONLY from sponsored posts.

    These are adverts placed straight by organizations or agencies.
    We haven’t confirmed the new figures, but on an average
    this really should price N500,000 per month each and every.
    We counted 12 on her site on Thursday. That is N6 million in 1 month.
    We see no proof that any of them is an in-type ad, probably from an event partnership.

    But let’s even assume that 2 of them are.
    So let’s make that N5 million a month. This is her primary source
    of revenue and the purpose why the silly produced-up
    scandal by Mr. Ayedee made her come out swinging.

    Her Google earnings, which comes in dollars, is her most significant, most consistent source of revenue outdoors of the
    prime banner ads.

    They are a mainstay of the main sites in the nation in terms
    of website traffic like Naij, Pulse, Daily Post, SaharaReporters, TooXclusive, and Naijaloaded.
    Let’s assume Linda is performing 1 million page views a day in visitors – and
    there is no explanation why she shouldn’t. Why we are so
    sure? Alexa rankings are inaccurate judge of traffic, but
    for the top 50 players on that rankings web-site, they are fairly
    substantially reliable. You do not get to the top 50 by playing around with Alexa toolbars, or tech-contenting your way there.
    Linda is Number 14 in Nigeria, and most importantly, Number 2,130 globally.
    Naij is Quantity 18 in Nigeria, and 2,168 globally.

    Considering that international is the best indicator for assumed pageviews, it suggests they are bye and significant receiving the very same site visitors.

    If the sources from Naij aren’t suffering
    some type of brain damage, that suggests Linda is hitting at least two million page views
    a day. But for the purposes, of conservative calculations, let’s say
    it is 1 million. She has the traditional 3 Google Advertisements on her web
    page to suck up the earnings from that traffic. Converting
    it with the truly dollar exchange rate, not the anomaly from the Central Bank of Nigeria, that’s at
    least (we utilised 375), that is a monthly revenue of at least N18,750,000.
    At any given time that Jesus is on the throne, Linda has a
    minimum of 3 top banners on her web page.

    On Thursday, when we counted there were 3. Every of
    those go for at least N1 million monthly. So, for these 3, Linda has at least N3 million in her bank account.
    This is hugely common in Nigeria if you’re BellaNaija or LindaIkeji.
    She has had the God is Fantastic Motors app takeover
    on that web-site for at least three weeks now, if not a month.
    That takeover charges N750,000 a week – the last time our source produced a payment for the space.
    Four weeks makes that N3 million. So let us do the maths collectively, brothers and sisters.

    Rounded up to the closest affordable total, that is 50 million naira.
    From just the issues we can see on her site, Linda Ikeji has the capacity, on an typical day
    to pull in 50 million naira via her weblog. That’s a reasonable assumption of N600,000,000 each and every year.
    The girl can afford a property in Banana Island primarily based on her
    personal income. She can afford original Louboutins anytime and on the other hand she wants them.
    And she certain as Jove can afford a N100 million a year office if she just wants a place to play.

    Stop hating. Start strategizing,operating tough and praying.

    For so extended, there have been a heated debate in the street of Nigeria and other parts of Africa about
    the Net Worth of Linda Ikeji the most well known Nigerian Blogger and arguably the richest African blogger.
    So a lot of people claim Linda Ikeji is a dotcom billionaire (in naira) though others don,t even feel she,s
    a millionaire possibly due to the fact they don,t see any possibility of soooo a lot money
    to be created online. Let me officially confirm that Linda
    Ikeji is a billionaire (in naira) and she created every single
    kobo of that revenue on-line i.e. from her blog (LIB), social
    networking web page (LIS) and from her App (The LIB App).
    In this write-up, i,m going to inform you how Linda Ikeji tends to make her
    billions online by means of her weblog, social networking
    web-site and App. Ok the foreplay is more than now.

    Let’s get down to business enterprise.
