It would seem all love is lost between popular social media expert and public speaker, Omojuwa who went on a tweeting spree some hours ago to call out his friend and blogger Linda Ikeji, for throwing shades at him on her blog with a personal secret he shared with her. He was obviously pained.
Read his tweets below…
â€˜I have found myself putting myself on the line on Twitter when people attack @lindaikeji . I do that when I see the world against anyone,â€™ he said.
â€˜Just about 2 weeks ago, I was even defending her sister when they went at her saying her marriage came too soon after her proposal.
â€˜Out of respect for my friend and now ex fiancÃ©e, I never shared the story of what happened between us publicly.â€™
He went ahead to drop names of some of his other trusted friends with whom heâ€™d also shared the story with.
These include some other popular bloggers that could have chosen to spill if they wanted to as well.
â€˜Out of all I shared the story with, @lindaikeji was only 1 I realized I had to inform not to publish it without assuming she wouldnâ€™t.
â€˜I told them all exactly what happened. Then in @lindaikeji â€˜s case made sure to tell her not to publish. Via an email. I didnâ€™t want the story out because it would embarrass my ex fiancÃ©es mum. Even if we werenâ€™t friends today, I still wouldnâ€™t want it out.â€™
Omojuwa spoke of how much he valued their friendship…
â€˜I have seen @lindaikeji use the cover of Ben Bruce to share me on her blog. I never took it personal. I considered she was doing her job.
â€˜I have seen her take sides with Reno Wendell Simlin Omokri. I didnâ€™t bother. Whatever she had going on with Reno wasnâ€™t my business.
â€˜When she was accused of getting N240m from PDP/Jonathan during the election, I actually called friends in the villa at the timeâ€¦
â€˜My friends told me as far as they knew, she didnâ€™t get any money. I didnâ€™t discuss anything with her. I simply posted tweets defending her.
â€˜Now, all of these are because I am loyal at times to the point of stupidity. On that day, I was swimming against social media tideâ€¦
â€˜But you see, when it is on a matter concerning people I care about, I donâ€™t mind swimming against any tide, social media or not.
â€˜So, to see @lindaikeji hide under the cover of a twitter nonentity to shade me on her blog over a story I personally told her? Tragic!â€™
â€˜So yeah, learn from my temporary stupidity to trust someone like @lindaikeji .Never trust a snake & they arenâ€™t hard to know. Learn from me!
â€˜When someoneâ€™s trusted you with the truth, you donâ€™t go ahead to post lies about same on your blog. That makes you a dangerous snake.â€™
On his engagement, he clarified…
â€˜I have been engaged once. It failed. Marriages fail so I donâ€™t even get how my one engagement should be an issue. Okay, because it is me.
â€˜And I can withstand the bullets and darts of those publicly committed to attacking me. I have thrived with that in some 8 years here.
â€˜I canâ€™t trust someone enough with my personal story and then see the person shoot a spear at me with the same story. That draws a line.â€™
â€˜We do great stuff that she ignores. But when Reno Wendell Simlin and Ben Agbaya Bruce post weak shades at me, she gets to post them.
â€˜I donâ€™t even mind that. I thrive in a â€˜me against the worldâ€™ environment. Pressure and enmity works for me. So I donâ€™t mind that.â€™
â€˜Against my intuition at the time, I trusted this one @lindaikeji and then told my intuition â€˜I told her not to publish so we are fine.â€™
â€˜My intuition was right as usual. I was stupid, unusual. Sad but useful lesson.â€™
Omojuwa explains the status of his breakup with his ex-fiancee…
â€˜There was nothing in my engagement breaking up that embarrasses me. My decision to keep it private was informed by two things.
â€˜My ex fiancÃ©e was a friend and remains a friend. We have met, had lunch, gisted in the last 3 months. I donâ€™t betray my friends.
â€˜I also felt Iâ€™d be very unkind to her and her mum by letting my â€œpublic figureâ€ persona come back to haunt them.
â€˜The circumstances of my engagement breaking up hurt both of us. We were in love from the beginning to the endâ€¦
â€˜We never fought, there was no argument. No one was caught cheatingâ€¦
â€˜I am fine with those who still insist they are now unfortunate because someone lost an election take shots at me. I live and thrive for that
â€˜But I refuse not to acknowledge @lindaikeji â€˜s spear. I can acknowledge it because it didnâ€™t pierce my heart. My intuition told me itâ€™d come
â€˜I am neither sad, shocked or angry. I am just happy to know that yet again, I was wrong, my intuition was right. I will trust better.
â€˜Money is good, I actually have some myself, but I know when push comes to shove, money is overrated! Donâ€™t be snakes to those who trust you!â€™
