Beyond that, Laura is a boss lady herself. She is a blogger like her sister but her major focus is on fashion. Her blog is called Hey! Laura and she has other engagements as a fashion entrepreneur.

The baby of the house, Benita is the last of Linda Ikeji’s siblings. While she is also one of the less popular ones, she made the headlines upon her engagement.
