Nollywood actor and businessman, Jim Iyke has opened up about the inspiration that led him into his acting craft.
According to him, he was inspired to go into acting when he saw some actors come into their university and snatch the pretty ladies from them. Jim Iyke intimated that the way the University ladies treated them was quite different from what the treatment meted out to the actors so he decided to be an actor to get some of the treatment.
He explained that he had a fair share of the ladies after he had his shot at fame and later realized that chasing girls was not worth it, but excelling in the industry.
He cited that he remembers the name of the actors but the failure to disclose their names. Jim Iyke made his submission in an interview on Kumasi based Luv Fm.
In other news, Jim Iyke recently weighed in on the reason the Ghanaian movie industry is not progressing. He cited that Ghanaians aren’t enthusiastic to revive the dying movie industry hence the fall of the acting business.
I think the will is what supersedes every human intention. And you need government power with regards to financial institutions and they should be part of this narrative… they are absent here in Ghana… and thirdly the people should believe it can happen because Ghanaians already believe nothing good can come out of it which is wrong…, he said.
Until you begin to look at it that there is no option than to do or die…, sometimes you need that extremism for something to happen. That laid-back approach that if it doesn’t work it is fine… that is what I have seen here in Ghana, he added.
