She got admitted into the University of Lagos to study English Language at the age of 18 and in order to support her education and assist her family financially, she worked part-time as a model, waitress and a waitress.

She finished from the university in 2004 and started blogging as a hobby in 2006. The internet wasn't so common then and she always had to make her articles in a cybercafé.

Ikeji's blog was shut down on the 8th of October, 2014 but restored two days later for undisclosed reasons. She has dealt with so many controversial posts including the #SaveMayowa Campaign and also about celebrities such as Funke Akindele, Wizkid, Richard Mofe Damijo, Tonto Dikeh and Djimon Honsou.
