Jim Iyke talks reality show
Jim Iyke’s tag of Nollywood’s bad boy may not be fat-fetched after all, when you consider the number of actresses he has kissed.
The actor had made an appearance on Africa Magic’s Special Guest, and had spoken to host Jocelyn Dumas about his reality TV show, Jim Iyke Unscripted.
When asked about kissing ex-girlfriend Nadia Buari on the show, Iyke responded that kissing wasn’t exactly a big deal for him.
He said: “I have once kissed them (his sisters) on set, and so, when walked into the room where two of them were with their boy friends, I kissed them one after the other and their boy friends were mad at me. I have also kissed over 200 actresses on set and nobody is talking about it.”
On why he did the show, he said he wanted people to see the real him, and not have opinions from the media and his movies.
“I have to be introspective. Many times, a lot of negative things have been said about me in the media. It is not basically about what they say about you, it is about you believing in yourself. The first thing is, what I believe in, and what people say about me is secondary. I have always been particular about paparazzi. I was very sceptical to allow cameras into my life, into my home and family. The argument was superior ; it was like all these years everybody has different opinions about you. Why don’t you give them a clear picture of who you are. So I decided to start the TV reality show.”
