Kemi Olulonyo Apologizes To Linda Ikeji
Written by MaxFM on May 30, 2018
Highly controversial journalist, Kemi Olulonyo has apologized to celebrity blogger Linda Ikeji possibly because of Hushpuppi’s request.
Recall, the Dubai-based Nigerian big boy had earlier urged Kemi to tender an apology and appreciation letter to Linda Ikeji before he can donate to her medical bills.
In response to this, the investigative journalist did not continue her claims on Linda’s pregnancy being fake rather she did what was right by humbly apologizing. She took to her YouTube Channel to post a video which she captioned:
“The blogger donated to my prison health and wellness fund and I made a video thanking her. A year later she told the Punch newspapers that she sent me N100k while was “languishing in prison when nobody wanted to help her” Little did many people know that bail conditions keeping me in prison was not money related. Rather it was a surety and an international passport.Advertisement
I was very HURT that she said this to a paper and her fans. All this because I reported her as not being pregnant according to several news tips.
I have decided to make peace with Linda despite how she ruined my name and brand after the gun story and an earlier family home-wrecking incident.Advertisement
News is news and Nigerians don’t understand that. I have therefore decided to end my journalism career writing Nigerian news.
A Nigerian socialite Hush Puppi whom I featured in my sarcasm Yoruba skit #NgbatNgbati on @HNNAfrica on Instagram was asked to donate to my medical bills to battle PTSD after my unfair prison detention.Advertisement
Hush wanted Linda and I to make peace and promised to donate if that happened. I cannot write an open letter as I have no strength to write due to my mental illness PTSD. I did this video.
Hopefully they will see it. Thank you Toyin Abraham, Tonto Dikeh who spoke at length to me on the peace initiative. Thank you Hush Puppi for being a peace advocate. Good luck everyone.”Advertisement
In the video, she first gave an account of an incident that happened in Paris recently where a Malian Migrant Rescued a Boy dangling from a 4 storey building then she proceeded to how bloggers really need to do their jobs, before she burst into tears saying:
“I never got married before having my kids, and it hurts me so bad, but i told my kids that’s the way it is, i want the best for Linda, I don’t want what happened to me to happen to Linda, So Am Sorry about what i said to Linda Ikeji, But she hurt me too.”Advertisement
To confirm that her words are sincere and honest, Kemi says having made peace with Linda, she has decided to end her Journalism.
At the end of the video, she thanked Hushpuppi for advocating for peace.
