Fake Birkin Bag Saga: Linda Ikeji May be Suffering from Poverty Mentality

When Linda Ikeji bought a huge house in the luxury Banana Island, most people were happy for her and wished for such to happen to them too. In fact, I sent her an email congratulating her and hoping I can write for her blog someday

Yesterday, Linda Ikeji showed off two Hermes Birkin bags on her Instagram page as new acquisitions. Before anyone could say jack, internet trolls had sent the bag to Hermes for Authentication. Hermes came back and confirmed the bags are fake

I do not believe she knew the bags were fake, so I’ll give her a pass for that. What shocked me was the way she went all out to defend herself, like her life depended on it…

“I can afford to buy a N500million house but can’t afford a $14k bag? B**ch pls!”
“This lovely bag cost me more than these haters cars cost and they want to come and disgrace me online? Lol. Lailai”
“The side of the bag. Oh and I’m snapping from my banana island mansion(insert LMAO emoji) love this life”
“….can someone cc Hermes with the new images? These people can’t come and disgrace me here. Lol”
“Too rich to buy fake…”

All of the above quotes are some of the words she used to defend her purchase of a fake bag

From someone who people admired and prayed about, she has come from 100-0 in my eyes. I see the desperation to fit in, the pride that comes from wealth but is not skin deep, the class that’s lacking and a huge ego that is blinding

A major symptom of poverty mentality is money and material fixation. Sometimes, no matter how far away from poverty one runs, some people still need an open brain surgery to expunge the poverty mentality

If you have decided that your car, purse, wardrobe or jewelry are the most valuable things you own, then the quality of your life is based solely on these things. If someone takes them away from you, what would the state of your mind be?

Do you guys think it was okay for her to go all out defending herself this way?
