Topmost Nigerian blogger and female entrepreneur, Linda Ikeji has been a trend for days after she shared photos of her growing baby bump on Sunday.
There has been a lot of arguments from people both for and against her favour.
Basically, social media users wondered how she eventually got pregnant considering that she was an advocate of celibacy and had given the impression that she was celibate.
Some doubting Thomases believe that the pregnancy was not real as the blogger might just have worn a prosthetic baby bump to deceive people that she was pregnant.
However, to prove them wrong, Linda has decided to share naked photos of her apparently bloated stomach on Instagram while explaining that she was an expert in 'sucking belle' which literally means tucking in the stomach.
Linda also cleared the air on the questions raised by curious persons about her celibacy stance.
She explained that she was never against pre-marital sex and reinstated her stance on the need for one to be celibate.
In her words: "(How to hide a baby bump 101. Suck belle in and wear a high waist...lol). So, a few friends have been calling me, asking me how I'm holding up with all the trolling on the internet since I announced my pregnancy. I kind of felt bad for them because they were worrying over something I wasn't. I've been on the internet for nearly 12 years now, I've made money, I've met amazing people, I've written about folks and stepped on toes (mostly of course, unknowingly...lol). So when people troll me, that's fine. It's called Karma. Lol. Fortunately, it doesn't get to me. There's nothing I haven't been called on the internet, and it will never stop because this is where I plan to do business for the rest of my life! So we all are stuck together. I'm not going anywhere...lol.
"So let's address some issues...and the reason why I bother is for the young girls who look up to me. I owe you and will always speak to help you in anyway I can because I want you to shine and be the better version of yourself.
"So number one, let's talk about this celibacy issue. I preached it a lot of times but I have NEVER said do not have sex before marriage. Here's what I have always said to young girls and I maintain it.
"Never ever give your body to a man for money. You're worth so much more than that. You're beautiful beyond measure and there's absolutely nothing a man can give you that you can't give urself if you apply yourself, believe in yourself and work hard. Start now that you're young, pursue your dreams, work hard till your hands are sore and ur mind is tired, never listen to anyone who tells you you're not good enough or you're wasting your time, and no matter how hard it gets, no matter how rough the road becomes, never give up on yourself or your dreams.
"2. I've always also said & I maintain it; do not sleep around because your body is too precious & deserves respect. You deserve love & dignity. I've always said sex should only happen when you find yourself in a loving relationship, with someone you love & who loves you back. I was 100% celibate until I was ready to share my life with someone and I met the man of my dreams. (unfortunately, I can't share him with the internet..lol)"
