Rumours have it that, Linda and Jeremi met in their neighbourhood sometime in 2016, during one of Jeremi’s routine drive-around in his Rolls Royce. They hit it off at once and consequently became entangled in a bottled-up amorous relationship. The cloak, which concealed their relationship could pass a CIA clandestine test. Both lovers were able to blank out virtually everyone from having the slightest insight into there relationship.
For Sholaye, his reluctance or more likely, his disagreement, of a publicized relationship with a very popular figure as Linda is quite understandable. Sholaye Jeremi’s entire life and business rests on the side of his proven degree of confidentiality, such that, a keen investigative look into his life and wealth could reveal some skeleton in the wardrobe.

Linda, on the other hand, is technically the grand Empress of the Nigerian Blogosphere and the entire Nigerian media sphere. She breaths, feeds and survive by poking into the lives and revealing private and sometimes, damaging information about popular figures within the country.

Their secret relationship blossomed for close to two years and as luck would have it, Linda got pregnant and recently gave birth to their baby boy, Jayce.
