Making it in Nollywood was not easy for the ex-beauty queen, who revealed how difficult it was at first. She was able to scale through, thanks to her determination and open-mindedness. Desperate Housewives Africa, produced by Ebonylife Studios, was her big break—the Pan-African version of the American television series Desperate Housewives premiered in 2015.

She played ‘Nina Fire’ in the popular Nigerian soap opera Tinsel. Linda appeared as Adesuwa Dakolo in EbonyLife’s spin-off drama series ‘Fifty’ in 2017 and as Noweyhon in Africa Magic’s television series ‘Jemeji’. Osifo co-hosts the game show “Give ‘n’ Take National Jackpot” with Segun Arinze.

Linda’s philanthropic aspirations paved the way for her LAO Foundation, an acronym for Love and Oneness, an NGO tasked with eradicating poverty and illiteracy in Nigeria and Africa. The Love And Oneness Foundation (LAO Foundation) has donated seven computer sets to the Little Saints Orphanage in Shasha, Akowonjo, Lagos.
