Linda quickly responded to the follower saying, “I too rich to buy fake, lol. waited 8 months to get it”. To another she wrote, “even you don’t believe the bag is fake. Hilarious” as she peppered the comment with emojis of laughter.

She went further: “Don’t worry my darlings, I’ll take all these down later but let’s clarify this. So, I bought the bag for 14 thousand dollars on Sloan Street, UK. In Naira, that would be how much again? That would be about N4.8m. Damn, Linda!”
