Femi Kuti and his senior sister Yeni Kuti are not happy with Linda Ikeji, the ever controversial Nigerian queen of junk news. Linda Ikeji incurred the wrath of the Kutis when she reportedly lifted an old false story on Femi Kuti and made it seemed like a current news item. Femi took to his twitter handle to ask Linda to take the false story down.
She reported that Femi Kuti returned two of his children to their mothers after DNA test proved he?s not their biological father. Lindaikejiblogspot.com fed other bloggers with this piece of news that created a big buzz on social media.
Now Femi Kuti and Yeni are telling Linda to take down the story, including the pictures of Femi?s Children. The entire story is not only false, but a fabrication that was made so many years ago by Encomium Magazine.
Linda Ikeji, who makes a hell of money from her blog, can not hire professional hands to get her original contents. Why she choose to feed her gossips hungry readers with false news, amazes me. As a gossip windpipe, Linda ought to get her stories right before rushing out news that could destroy families. The new queen of Nigerian Junk News, Linda Ikeji who since she became rich never picks calls or messages from old friends should know better. The dust is yet to settle from a recent brouhaha with her once upon a time online boyfriend-Aye BoBo, the Kutis fight really dirty!
