Rumours had said the 37 year-old was keeping her engagement news under wraps but her would-be husband was too excited to keep it a secret. And that the preparations for the wedding was already on the way.

The blogger has now taken to her Instagram page to dismiss the reports while admitting it would happen.

She shared the above photo of her hand and wrote;

Ring finger still bare. 😊. The pressure to marry…Lol. It will just hasn’t. 😁”

Recall that Linda had admitted that she’s under “intense pressure” to find a husband.

Linda Ikeji, whose marital status has been a recurring subject of public discourse, said she is fed up of being constantly prodded by “family and friends” to get married.

She spoke on the subject, ‘Pressure To Marry Before 30’ in a 2016 feature on Genevieve Magazine.

“Marriage is not an achievement. There is so much more to life than being someone’s wife,” Ikeji said defiantly while also underscoring the importance of settling down.

“Get married please, but don’t be pressured into it, she said”

Seemingly unnerved by her own personal experience, Ikeji further said:

“I don’t know how many of you single girls are under pressure to get married but I am. Pressure from family, friends and people who just can’t mind their business.

“The pressure is so intense right now I feel like going to husband market – if there is any such thing – to buy myself some breathing space. Give me a break, you people.”

The blogger last year had also discussed the things she requires in a man she would love to marry.

According to Linda, any man who would finally claim her heart and eventually take her to the altar must be dexterous and highly skillful at the things of the inner room.

When asked if she has been getting proposals from suitors as well as what she requires in a man she would love to marry, she dropped some interesting points.

“I’m getting quite a lot of proposals. You know people say when a woman is successful, men run away, it’s a lie, that is when they chase you the more. But unfortunately, I haven’t seen what I’m looking for. To be honest, I keep telling people, it’s not like men are scarce, it’s the type of man some of us are looking for that is scarce, if I want to marry next year I can, but he would not be the kind of man I want.

I want a man that I can look up to, someone that inspires me, someone that would push me, someone that would motivate me, somebody that has had some success in his own career path, then I can look up to him and be like “wow”, a man that teaches me and I can learn from. I’m inspired by successful people, someone like Tyler Perry, I can’t wait to meet him. I can’t marry a poor guy, I’m being honest about it, no I can’t, he doesn’t have to be very rich but let him be successful in his own way.

You may come across some successful men but there is something wrong there, so the whole package is what I’m looking for. When I was like 30-years old, my standards were very high, extremely high, but I wasn’t looking at marrying, I was just focused on work because I’ve always been so ambitious that I wasn’t focusing on marriage or kids. I felt like I should just do what I wanted to do. It was just recently that I began to think about marriage, and to be honest, my requirements are only three now. He must be successful, he must be a good man, in the sense that he must be supportive of me, if he tries to stifle me then I’m out. Lastly, he has to be a man that likes sex and must be very good at it”, she stated.

People should leave my Linda alone, there are hundreds of ladies in Nigeria that are older than her and are not even living large the way she’s doing but still insisting on their stand on not getting married yet, this lady will one day tie the knot, that’s certain, and I’m sure she will do that at the right time.
