How Linda Ikeji 'Destroyed' My Career

I had a job; one of those jobs where the dress requirement never matches the salary, thank God for night market! My job was good for a beginner; it held great prospects for the career I wanted, but it never got me the recognition I deserved. To get noticed in my field, I would have to grind hard for at least 15 years, the pay at the top wasn’t even fantastic. My entire pension would not be enough for a Birkin bag. Someone was making more from shouting “koko master’’ in a philistinic video. Another was making more by simply copying and pasting people’s story; does she have 2 heads?
